Our Call To Be Missionaries

In 2011, Gary told me he felt God was calling us to be missionaries in USA. He shared with me how after going thru a Bible study about the talents in Luke 19, the Lord had practically pointed His finger at him and have told him he was the one with one talent and asked him what he was going to do about it. Gary prayed and was convinced that was the call the Lord was giving us. I told him "I haven't heard anything!" He said ok, so let's keep praying about it.

Having to leave my country and my whole family behind was a "concern" of mine. This was a big move; I wanted be sure it was God's idea and not just my husband's. While in a women's retreat, I ask God, "Lord, I know this may be wrong to ask from You, but I need some proof. I know we have to live by faith and not but sight, but I need You to show me that this is of you. Right now the economy is not good so people are not buying "toys," so if you sell our Harley Davidson, I'll believe You. "Later, we had a break and I decided to call my hubby. After a few minutes, he told me "guess what? I sold the Harley, cash, no question asked!" I went quiet for a few second while feeling the Holy Spirit pressing in my heart and I couldn't help but cry! Gary had absolutely no clue of my request to the Lord so I told him. It was undeniable this call was from Him.

That was the beginning of the many ways the Lord was going to confirm His call to serve Him in the USA as missionaries.

Why Jesus is The Way RV Ministry?

Many have asked us why we chose "Jesus is The Way" as the name for our RV Ministry.
Well, for us there's no other way to live our lives but by "His way." 
When we think of the whats, wheres, whens, hows, whys of life, the answer is always going to be Jesus is The Way, not "a way", but "the only way." Since He is our Creator, He knows the purpose and the reason of His creation, so He knows how to "fix" it. He knows and He is the answer to all our questions. Jesus is the only way we will find the meaning to our lives and our existence. 
Let's go thru some of those questions:

A. What is the way to happiness or to success? 
Proverbs 3:5-6 (NLT) 
5 Trust in the Lord with all your heart; do not depend on your own understanding. 
6 Seek  His will in all you do, and He will show you which path to take.

B. Where do we come from, where should we go in times of need, guidance or direction? 
John 1:1-3 (NLT)
1 In the beginning the Word already existed.      
The Word was with God,
and the Word was God.
2 He existed in the beginning with God.
3 God created everything through Him,
and nothing was created except through Him.
4 The Word gave life to everything that was created, and His life brought light to everyone. 

Isaiah 40:28 (NLT)
28 Have you never heard?
Have you never understood?
The Lord is the everlasting God, 
the Creator of all the earth.

C. When will we stop worrying about things concerning our life: future, finances, health, family? 
Psalm 23: 4 (NLT) 
4 Even when I walk
through the darkest valley,
I will not be afraid,
for You are close beside me.

1 Peter 5:7 (NLT)
7 Give all your worries and cares to God, for He cares about you.

D. How can we find peace, have hope to endure thru difficult times?
Psalm 18:2 (NLT)
2 The Lord is my rock, my fortress, and my savior;
my God is my rock, in whom I find protection.
He is my shield, the power that saves me,
and my place of safety.

E. Why are we here? 
1 Corinthians 10:31 (NLT)
31 So whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God.

Ephesians 2:10 (NLT)
10 For we are God’s masterpiece. He has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so we can do the good things He planned for us long ago.

God truly knows everything about us as His children.
