A Long Time Coming
I looked over at a very dear friend of mine Monday morning and said with almost disbelief, "We're missionaries." That's it. That's all I said. He looked at me like I was stupid and said "Yeah?" We had just been accepted as missionaries with Vision Baptist Mission board the previous night just before the service. I don't think he realized just how surreal that moment was for me. For me to stand up and say for the first time "I'm Jens Looney, Missionary to Indonesia." was a literal dream that along the way I wandered if it would ever happen.
You see, this all started in children's church years ago as a dream a little boy had while listening to Bible stories. As I got into my preteens it was less of a dream and more of what all the old people said. But then I realized my sinful condemned state before Almighty God at the age of thirteen and accepted Jesus Christ as my Lord and Saviour and that changed everything. The Bible became more then just a book with neat stories. It became the very infallible words of God and the power unto Salvation and changed lives!
I don't want to take up too much of your time, but if you like, stick around and I'll tell you everything God has done, is doing and will do. Trust me friend, this is a trip you want to be a part of.
