Leave the Joe and Go

I smiled as I passed by the mission slogan. I know that you can find a better cup of coffee than Joe in many places around the world. (Yeah Kenya!)
Of course, this is not about a cup of coffee. It's not about Jittery Joe or Starbucks. It's about listening to and obeying the Lord in regards to His call on our life. Do I see His plan for me in reaching an unreached world.
It's about my willingness to move from the known to the unknown, the familiar to the unfamiliar,the comfortable to the uncomfortable.
For Mike and I it meant a change in direction. We were challenged with the need of our Indian friends in NE Georgia.
We smiled, because you opened the door of our home in Leicester England onto the sidewalk. There were 100 homes on our block. All but one other couple were from India, mainly from the State of Gujarat. Two blocks away was the 'Golden Mile.' So named because of the large number of 22-carat gold shops on Belgrave Rd. We lived in the heart of 'little India' with the biggest celebration of Diwali (the Festival of Lights) outside of India.
We loved our Indian friends and our ministry. Why would we leave our nice comfortable life working among the people we love?
For us 'Leave the Joe and Go' meant a willingness to return to the States and begin all over again to build relationships with our friends from India -- this time in NE Georgia.
