Several years ago we took a team to serve at an orphanage in a rural village in Guatemala. The majority of the team were on their first mission trip. It was fun to watch the team use their different gifts, talents and abilities for the purpose of serving one another and sharing the love of Jesus!
One of the team member really stood out to me! This man was on his first mission trip and his background was very impressive: Graduate from West Point Military Academy, collegiate wrestler and retired Army Colonel. He discovered on this trip that God was directing his steps on a new journey.
His new journey involved: a spiritual awakening, obtaining a masters in theology and becoming a church military chaplain! So take some time to discover your God given gifts, cultivate these gifts and serve them to the world!
God has given each of you a gift from his great variety of spiritual gifts. Use them well to serve one another. 1 Peter 4:10(NLT)
