In October 2012, I joined The Nester with over 1000 others in her "31 Days" challenge. Each one of these could be considered an avenue of "mission". So for 2012, I'm teaching some Spanish through songs over on my MISSIONS blog. Come join me, listen, learn and enjoy.
MISSIONS is another blog of mine. It has evolved to be an important part of my daily life, research and beliefs as well as a vision of what I hope to be very involved in. I really do need to spend more time developing this blog once again and my efforts here in the mission field that God has placed me. Yet each of you are in a place and have a part in making your daily life, whatever you're doing, part of your mission for God.
However, before it was established as another blog and at other times, I have shared part of my MISSION here on aMazing Grace. In fact, there are 36 that I have given the label MISSION. Here are some of the MISSION posts under the MISSION label:
JANUARY is NATIONAL SLAVERY and HUMAN TRAFFICKING AWARENESS MONTH and January 11th has been declared as "Human Trafficking Awareness Day" Find out what you can do... MISSIONS links you to more [This was overshadowed in 2011 by the tragic news of the shooting in Arizona].
Since 2007, this is the direction God has sent me in my actual MISSION endeavor. I have found out much about this topic, became blatantly aware of the atrocities and have encountered many excellent organizations (in other countries and for other countries). But Mexico, is one of the biggest target areas of selling women and children, just south of our border, both in their country for exploitation by so called tourists and being sent or taken into the USA for such. Sexual tourism is no different than trafficking, both are extreme exploitation of humans that MUST be stopped. I have seen much being done in the Baltic states (countries) and Far East (Thailand, Philippines,
Indonesia, etc) but not much is known about what is happening here or being done (although there are places that there is something being done---it's not enough)! Mexico needs help combating people being sold and bought and trafficked like merchandise. Parents and young people are being deceived. Human lives are not for sale! This has become my main emphasis over at MISSIONS and in real life. I just do not share publicly on blogs about it except for organizations and prayer.
But it is a great concern and Project A for me!!! among other efforts with evangelism being done here in Mexico. There aren't enough hands for all that needs to be done and funding grows less each day.
Originally MISSIONS was created as a meme/carnival for Mondays and was called Mission 4 Monday.
Here is what I've written over there on the bottom about MISSIONS and Mission 4 Monday no longer being a meme. Some of which no longer applies and much of this states what I believe about MISSIONS plus they are some really great links to others. I thought about crossing out what no longer is applicable but decided perhaps one day again it will be so why not see it as it was.
