One attribute that my mother instilled in me at an early age was “to be an indpedent woman.” I suspect she was emulating the changing times of the 1970’s & 80’s, when women were claiming their independence in the workplace and in leadership roles throughout American culture. I am grateful for her encouragement, and it has shaped me into the strong person that I am today.
To have to ask for help, however, is not an easy task for me. Stepping into the missionary world and walking in faith, I need to learn how to better embrace this. From asking how to say a word in Spanish, or asking directions, or to asking sponsors for donations, I need to put my ego aside and remember “the ask” is really from Jesus and not for me.
This was the mindset we had to embrace when making this video, and as I prepare to go to Ometepe November 25 – December 2.
John 14:13-14 (NIV)13 And I will do whatever you ask in my name, so that the Father may be glorified in the Son. 14 You may ask me for anything in my name, and I will do it.
