Quality, not Necessarily Quantity

This month’s meetings have been fabulous! The meetings have been with churches that we’ve had relationships with for about 10 years, almost as long as we have been married. Since marrying Cliff, I can remember him saying “quality, not quantity”. He wanted to be sure that what we were doing was not about numbers…how many people we minister to, how much money we make or how many meetings we hold, etc. We’ve had a lot of discussion with people over the years in regards to this subject and yes, of course, there is a balance. My point is this. These churches have the smallest congregations of everywhere we go and normally have us in once a year if not twice and take care of us generously.

Here’s an example from last weekends meeting: Cliff has been getting words from the Lord more often and much more consistent. In one meeting, Cliff knew strongly that someone was to be saved. He closed the meeting for the evening when there was no response, but moments after the meeting ended, a young man raised Orthodox Jew came up. He said “I’m seeing it”, but I don’t know what I would say to my father. Cliff gave him some tools to research in regards to Christianity for Jews and shared with him in Acts 26:28 about King Agrippa saying to Paul, “are you so quickly persuading me to become a Christian?”

Your partnership touches young lives all over the world, whether a young Jew in America or someone overseas. People refer to us as missionaries often. We aren’t missionaries to a specific geographical location, but to a specific people group. We are Missionaries to Youth! What an honor!
