God loves it when we have no plan B. He does His greatest work when we are totally reliant on Him. He comes to our rescue when we are walking a tightrope, teetering on the brink of disaster, without a safety net below.
Why? Because walking a tightrope without a safety net requires faith. And when we trust Him to do something audacious, totally ridiculous, completely beyond our capability, only God can get the credit!
Life Without Limbs operates in this faith-building place every day. Gratefully, God has brought friends like you alongside us to help. But we cannot realize our ministry dreams without God’s intervention, nor without God’s people to fuel our ministry. People like Ignatius.
Ignatius was a complete stranger to me until 2008 when we first met in Hong Kong. Little did I know this businessman would open the doors to all of China through his relentless faith and courage. He believed God told him to bring Life Without Limbs to China. And so he put his faith into action. Ignatius quit his job and began preparing to accomplish the impossible. With little or no support from his family and friends, he set a date for an evangelistic event in his city.
When friends failed to help him raise money, he took out a mortgage on his home and sold his car in order to rent the stadium. They told him he was crazy because surely no one would come to hear a foreigner speak about Jesus. Ignatius said, “I was forced to give up all my rational thinking and rely totally on God. I had no plan B. There was only a plan A and God would make the way.”
The sacrifice by this one man led to one of the most amazing days of my life! That stadium was filled two times over. Thousands of people gave their lives to Christ. And today Ignatius gives leadership to our Hong Kong office and oversees our ministry to all of China.
Friend, we are embarking on the most ambitious season of ministry in the history of Life Without Limbs. And we have no safety net, no plan B, other than the generosity of God’s people. We are moving forward in faith because we believe God has led us to reach 27 countries for Him. I am going without knowing the outcome. This is a grand adventure in trusting God while walking the tightrope of faith.
Is God stirring in your heart to join me? Please ask God what He wants you to give. Your donation, your step of faith today, will help us take the good news to people who are starving for hope, who are living without a plan B, who need us to tell them about Jesus.
In Him, Through Him, For Him,
