Do you think that a Christian Life sounds like a bore? I did. A friend of mine said he was worried about going to heaven because he thought it seemed dull. He loves the sea, sand, and anything outdoors! What could living a Christian Life hold for him? Similarly, when my wife and I became Christians together 28 years ago, it was hard. How could we serve the Lord engagingly and excitingly? But, after spending 30 years in an exciting IT development environment and with four children in tow, we gave it all up. We sold up and set out on a life-changing journey with God.
Our journey takes us all around the world. We live without doctors. There is no sufficient police force. Our faith is 100%. If we did not have faith, we would have nothing. We see the light every day where others see death and hardship.
I need to document this for others. We want to share this adventure with you if you have just the smallest interest.
But first I need to share what my passions are. Without passion, we are lifeless.
The Bible documents God’s passion for His people. Our journey is about our passion for God.
My three passions which help me achieve this are:
– Marriage as a faithful husband to my wife and as a good father to my children
– Flying as a jungle pilot for MAF. I love serving isolated people everywhere, every day
– Leadership to everyone around me whom I serve. Leadership is upwards and downwards. To advise and encourage my bosses. To counsel and coach people who depend on me.
I also have another passion. It is writing software. But, that is another story.
The Great Christian Adventure website is all about having a passion for Christ and living an adventure with the Lord. Just like the Bible documents God’s passion for His people, this site documents our passion for God.
Please be encouraged to follow us for encouragement and to share an adventure.
After a year of talking about it, we have launched the Great Christian Adventure website.
Blessings – Paul
Please keep in touch.
I need to ask one question: “How can we live lives that are worth it?” If you cannot answer this question, you need to keep looking.
