This book will challenge your thinking on missions and what it could be in the future. It offers thought provoking guidelines that are foundational to both personal and missions’ success. Think, Ask, Go (Repeat) challenges readers to dig deep, listen, and learn from every situation and mistake. It also shows:
• Why a clear vision is vital to success and how to develop it
• Awareness on how your mind can sabotage you by wanting to keep the status quo
• What listening really means
• The importance of good questions
• What real partnership looks like
• The importance of thinking about sustainability and legacy
It is in the synergy of each of these areas where those with a heart for missions—whether they are local or overseas—will experience an increase in their personal growth and leadership skills.
A raindrop has seen the rise and fall of civilizations and survived deserts of ice and sand. However, despite all of her adventures, this once-powerful lady has lost her way. That is, until a gust of wind—or perhaps a twist of fate—sends her face-to-face with a lowly rock. But what good could come from a conversation with a rock? Turns out, this is no ordinary rock. This particular rock watches the world around him evolve with a curious, near astonishing blend of precision, versatility and splendor, and he wonders about that. What hand lies behind such bewildering, unwavering might? When these diverse entities collide, sparks fly, and together they embark upon the path of discovery, unraveling mysteries neither would have thought possible.
In this lighthearted romp through a serious world, the rock and the raindrop combine their talents and explore the many ways—always subtle and often clever—God reveals Himself to us through nature. With the help of the surrounding forest, they unearth hidden mathematical and philosophical treasures, traces of the spiritual world working quietly behind the scenes. Replete with poetic charm, this delightful tale is an illuminating and thoughtful series of contemplations on the meaning of life, the power of faith, and the wondrous roads we travel in pursuit of the eternal adventure.
