Why did we decide to sell everything we have to follow God? First things first, God started to speak to me (Stewart) about 13 years ago, shortly after I became a Christian, and shortly after meeting Elaina who was working with YWAM in Edinburgh. As you know, life happens; you get married, you have kids, get a house, etc. You know how it is, right?
After having two kids, we moved a couple of times searching for things to make us happy. A good-paying job, big house, nice cars (and those who know me will know that I do love my cars). However, there was always something not right like a piece of a puzzle that I tried to force into place, and no matter how I tried, it just wouldn’t fit.
During this time, we found our home church and their discipleship classes where I re-learned some of the spiritual gifts I had tucked away. Through these classes, I got to practice my prophetic gift.
This year, God has been speaking to us again about doing missions as a family. But we were uncertain since I had never been on a mission trip myself. This June, I went on my first mission trip with Elaina and others from our church. It confirmed that this is what I was created for, what we as a family were created for.
