You don’t have to be a pastor to be used of God

Bro. John Pearson and his wife Sandy and Bro. David Lundy and his wife Anne were with us during the last week.  Their visit was wonderful and God blessed in many ways.  Neither one of them are pastors, but they are both driven men of God that have a passion to spread the Gospel to the whole world.

I was amazed at what Bro. John and Bro. David do in their local church.  Bro. John is one of the busiest men that I know but that never hinders him from doing the work of God.  He teaches in the Bible College each week at Vision Baptist Church, teaches Sunday school, does discipleship with two couples at different times during the week, never misses a service, teaches in a Spanish ministry in Spanish (yes he learned Spanish), does discipleship also in Spanish, etc. (I probably forgot something).  That is what he does besides his 12 hour a day work.  He taught in the churches while being here and also taught our pastors.  It was wonderful.

Bro. David Lundy is also a great man of God.  He is extremely faithful in his church.  He has been a vital key in helping his church grow and advance.   He teaches, does discipleship, and is helping his church start up their Sunday School program.  He has been a great friend to me and this ministry.  He prays for me and for the other Burkinabé pastors each day.  He calls and writes often.  He is truly an encouragement to me and the ministry here in Burkina Faso.

Thanks Bro. John and Mrs. Sandy for your love, kindness and example.  You were and are a great blessing to us and to the Burkinabé.

Thanks Bro. David and Mrs. Anne for your encouragement, love, and desire to be used of God.  You helped greatly this past week.

You don’t have to be a pastor to be used of God.  These two men are doing more than many pastors I know in getting the Gospel to their community and around the world.  You don’t have to be a pastor to visit a missionary and be used of God.
