Mt Wellington Community Church


We have all been commissioned by God to 'Go and make disciples'.

Then Jesus came to them and said, "All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me.  Therefore GO and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age." (Matthew 28:18-20)

I have the privilege of being on the AIM (Africa Inland Mission) NZ national board. We have been looking for other board members for a little while. I interviewed a man who was interested in being on the board and he is a surgeon. He had been a missionary in Kenya in Kijabe Hospital. We talked about the different things we had both been doing while on the mission field. He was a surgeon working in a large Mission hospital. He told me some of the things that he had been involved with over the years that he had been serving there; as you can appreciate they were pretty inspiring. I told him about the mentoring and training that I had done in Eldama Ravine. I talked about the community work that I had encouraged and the sports coaching I was involved in as well. He said that he was inspired by the work I had done in Kenya and was doing here in Aotearoa, he would love to be able to do something like that but he was unable to. I said I was inspired by what he did and I wish I could be a surgeon. The amazing thing is, God takes all of us and uses what we have and who we are. If we are available to be used by Him he will use us better than we can imagine. Not only does He use the gifts he has given us but we will also see God do things that we could never imagine through us.

Ask God what he wants you to do and where He wants you to go and then GO!
