Twice a year WorldVenture appoints new people to serve Jesus cross-culturally. Twice a year I spend the better part of a few days getting them ready for the recognition ceremony. Twice a year I live with a stopwatch in my hand for a few days. Twice a year I listen to their stories over and over. Twice a year I help them refine and edit their stories. Twice a year I let go of the watch and listen as others hear those stories for the first time.
Today was one of those days that only comes twice a year. Today was a day of celebration. Today 4 new couples were launched into years of telling their stories of God’s faithfulness and the stories He is writing for them. Today 8 people were launched on a journey to change time and eternity. Today was a good day.
