Don't let anyone look down on you because you are young, but set an example for the believers in speech, in life, in love, in faith and in purity. --1 Timothy 4:12



As I hope you would know that is a picture of the continent of Africa. Lately, God has really burdened my heart for this continent. I recently saw a list of the top 10 poorest country's in the world, and every single country was from the continent of Africa. I believe those Africans have suffered enough and that, and if they don't know Christ they will suffer more when they die. I don't want that for anyone, but I especially don't want that for people that have already had to endure so much, and without Christ are a hopeless people.

Now you may have a heart for another country which is great! If all missionaries flocked to Africa no one else would hear the gospel. Please don't get me wrong. I am just sharing God's heart inside of me. His heart inside of you might be totally different.

Whatever God's heart inside of you may be, please don't procrastinate and think you can't do anything about your calling at your age. You need to start working on his call for your life NOW! My friend Sydney O'leary has started a mission to feed orphans in Africa. I am still waiting for God to confirm this for me, but I would like to start a mission that supplies funds for Youth Groups to go on mission trips to Africa mainly, but also other countries. I would also like to use my mission to support long-term missionaries, who are working on the front lines.

So don't let your age stop you from working for Christ. For we can do ALL thing through Christ who strengthens us!
