1 Samuel 25:13 And David said unto his men, Gird ye on every man his sword. And they girded on every man his sword; and David also girded on his sword: and there went up after David about four hundred men; and two hundred abode by the stuff.
1 Samuel 30:24 For who will hearken unto you in this matter? but as his part is that goeth down to the battle, so shall his part be that tarrieth by the stuff: they shall part alike.
I am thankful that God has called men into the ministry to be missionaries. Whether on the foreign field or planting churches in America where they are needed it is a much needed ministry and takes a very special person to do this kind of work.
One thing we must realize is that they can not do this type work alone. Those who sit by the stuff and faithfully pray for them, support them financially, and encourage them. They have left their homes, friends and family members to follow God's call and it is important for them to know that there are people sitting by the stuff while they are away.

If you know of someone new to the Kosciusko area and would like for our church to visit them please let us know. Our prayers are that this devotional ministry will be an outreach to bring people into a closer relationship with Jesus. I do appreciate you taking the time to read these devotionals and please keep us in your prayers.
