What is your mission? Is it difficult? Just pray and continue to pursue! - Daily Bible Reflections October 5,2015


FIRST MISSION
 
“Set out for the great city... and preach...” – Jonah 1:2
 
       I recall my first try to work overseas as I reflect on Jonah’s first mission.
       I was hired as an IT manager of a leading retail company in Papua New Guinea. But in my heart there was a deeper mission: to spread the Good News.
       My mission was a daunting task as I had no idea where to start. The city where I worked in was big. So I prayed. But for one whole year, I wasn’t able to preach. I continued to pray. After a year, doors opened wide. Opportunities to speak before various parish groups came. I became a regular preacher at the Diocesan Center for Renewal in the Archdiocese of Port Moresby. Eventually, I was chosen to head the evangelization ministry in the archdiocese.
       Looking back, my first year was a time to acquaint myself with the local culture and traditions. I made friends with the locals and just allowed myself to be used as a channel of God’s love.
       Thank You, Lord, for sending me to these people.
       Romans 10:15 says, “How can people preach unless they are sent? As it is written, ‘How beautiful are the feet of those who bring the good news!’” Danny Tariman (dtariman.loj@gmail.com)
 
Reflection: What is your mission? Is it difficult? Just pray and continue to pursue!
 
Lord, please strengthen me when I start to weaken, and encourage me when despair sets in. Amen.
 
St. Maria Faustina Kowalska, pray for us.
