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.
