It's time to blog!
I've done so much commenting lately on others blogs, I figured it was time to start one of my own!
It has been exciting to see the growing number of new "missionary" blogs. I have no illusions about my own writing abilities, but see myself joining fellow M's out there in sharing pertinent missions and church planting thoughts and ideas.
Sometimes I just like to bounce ideas off people. Church planting is not an easy task. There are few "How To" books out there, and the few that are available make for good reading, but somehow fall short of doing what only the Holy Spirit can do. I like feedback, and this seems to be one way to get some from time to time. Most of what we know has come from first hand experience on the field. We have had far more failures than successes, but that is how we learn.
I already moderate a church planting forum consisting of 90 or so missionaries scattered throughout South America. I enjoy the forum, but want to take this next step and try out the blogging. Hopefully to make some new friends and link up with some new folks interested in ssues relating to missions, church planting, CPM, etc.
