I wanna go. If I could just take off and go, I’d pack a bag right now and head for the place I most call home.
A few changes of clothes, a toothbrush and a hair clip,
A journal, a pen, a Bible and a camera,
My passport and a ticket –
To Baja by way of San Diego.
I would go to each church like a modern- day apostle. I might even change my name to Pauline for the occasion.
Encouraging the people:
receiving their hugs
eating their food
lifting their prayers
Since I can’t go, at least not right away, I’ll find a different way.
I’ll stay and go into the lives of my dear people I’m blessed to serve, here:
with phone calls,
with hand-written notes,
with church at home, and visits to the isolated.
Overseas, or over the county line, you’re a missionary just like me.
All of us are.
Ready? Set? GO!
