Every day is a Mission

David works at a church in Frisco. He lives his faith every day by serving one of the most important places in our faith. Follower of One’s marketplace mission trip was still able to build a better environment for David. How is this possible? Well, in the discussion, David talks about how he meets with several people who don’t believe. Whether it was construction workers, or people showing up to the church that are still not believers. This gave David the ability to spread the word every day by focusing on what is most important, our God. Every day is a mission and we need to be cognizant of that fact! Opportunity lies just beyond misconception. Take time to read some of the opportunities around you, even if it doesn’t seem bountiful. 

Slow Down

We all have lives going in separate directions. Not one single person has the same path of life that you do and that is a strength we have! David talks about how the Marketplace Mission Trip allowed him to slow down and think about how he plans to spread the gospel each day. This is not an easy task, we know! Each day we probably wake up to distraction or passion. Take time to slow down in the morning and get your mind right for the day. It will help! 

“Follower of One told me that we don’t have to go anywhere. There are enough people here that need to hear the Gospel!”
