A Field Worker Called to a Plentiful Harvest Part 1
04/12/2021 Washington, D.C. (International Christian Concern) – Lucia had dreams. She had a mission to serve and minister to the local college students in Indonesia. However, she worked as a field worker with no platform to share her passion for the gospel and students.
Lucia decided to print T-shirts to help her team’s outreach efforts. A local print shop agreed with her until the owner found out the T-shirts were for Christian outreach. He pulled out of the deal immediately.
Tina, one of the other outreach missionaries, expressed her disappointment at the rejection and how it has made her, and the team feel alienated from their community. “By discipling students, we hope that they will become Christ-followers who are scattered everywhere and in all existing professional fields so that the light of the gospel is revealed wherever they are,” she said.
The team faced backlash from their Muslim-majority community because the T-shirt spelled ‘Christian.’ “It feels like we are strangers in our own home.”
Lucia and Tina worked under a shroud of rejection and doubt for months. Lucia refused to let the rejection stop her from finding a way to harvest the field before her.
Matthew 9:37-38, “Then he said to his disciples, “The harvest is plentiful, but the workers are few. Ask the Lord of the harvest, therefore, to send out workers into his harvest field.”
