Conversations Aren't Isolated Events
Last week, I spoke with a TEAM coach in California about a young couple who is seriously considering joining TEAM to do linguistics and creation care work in Brazil.
The interesting thing is that I had met them at a Creation Care & Missions Conference in Pasadena, CA in April 2018. We had great conversations at the time, and I had introduced them via email to other missionaries serving in creation care. But this story goes back even further! On February 22nd, 2017, I gave a creation care seminar at Multnomah University, in Oregon, and a person who heard me speak told this young couple that they should look into TEAM. So a year later in another state they didn't even realize until AFTER the conference was over that I was the person they were supposed to connect with! Yet here we are now, full circle, and we can see how God worked out His purposes for good. We don't always get to see the end of the story in this earthly life, but we can trust Him with the details and praise Him for how He works through our obedience to answer His call.
