The Vision, Revisited

Christian Hernandez-Hollie (a really talented young lady!) read a poem during our Friday Night Fellowship a couple weeks back entitled "The Vision".  It's worth five minutes to listen and dream with God about what He wants His people to look like.  If you'd like, you can read the poem yourself here.
The vision happens one person at a time, as hearts are turned to God and lives are changed.  The vision is personal because we serve a personal God.  It can't be mass produced because He doesn't mass produce us.  It will look different at different times and different places and in different people, but in the end it will always look like Jesus.  That gets me excited!
This month, 10 of our campus missionaries will take 55 of our students to Washington to learn more about this kind of personal ministry.  And hopefully to catch a clearer vision themselves.  These are students who we hope will step into leadership this fall.
Please take a moment to pray for these students that the Lord will do something special in each of their lives that week (May 16-25), and that He will knit our hearts together in true Christian community, based not on our similarities, but on His vision.
My prayer for you is that you will see His vision more clearly, and that your friends, families, and co-workers will see His vision more clearly by looking at you!
