Here’s an interesting story of one man’s life. He got involved with Campus Crusade for Christ while at Michigan State University, probably in the 1950s, and was forever changed.
Just a regular college student who saw his life change while in college, became a missionary pilot with SIM, taught school, took care of his parents, served others. The article says that he was in Nigeria in the early 1970s but I don’t know if we overlapped or not. I never met him.
God used this today to remind me why we do what we do. Helping people find purpose and meaning in life, that gives their life a direction that serves others.
Reminds me we many times we don’t know the impact we are having until much later. Changed lives. First ours are changed and then it is worth giving our lives to do the same.
