He Said Go

22 December 2010 One Comment

“Where you go, I go.  What you say, I say.”

These are words that Martha Lemke has sung and prayed countless times.  It was her anthem as she packed up her life and traveled the world doing missions work for an entire year.  It was her mantra as she went to the broken, the hurting, the outcasts of the world and brought them the Hope of God.  Martha has decided that laying down her own desires are worth the Cost of Christ.  As she traveled the world this year, Martha followed the Lord as he told her to go to some of the darkest places.  She went – and as a result, countless people now know the Love of God.

And now God is telling her to go again.  In January, Martha will be going to Spain for a 6-month training school called G42.  This school specializes in equipping and empowering missionaries and then helping them get to the place on the field God has called them to.

While I traveled with Martha this year, I watched as the Lord broke Martha’s heart for the “least of these”.  Martha has one of the most tender hearts I have ever met.  She often stopped to talk and help people whom others past by.  I watched as the Lord used Martha to show his love to people who had never experienced it before. In the countless times we preached that year – Martha’s message remained the same: “God loves each of you so much.  He wants you to experience that love and grace.  You are worth it.  Nothing compares to the love of God.”  Martha was the one who first stopped and saw Melissa on the side of the road.  Many had passed by her, but Martha refused to let this injustice continue.  Melissa and her brother Patrick were dying of malnutrition and did not have adequate caretakers.  Because of Martha’s love, both Melissa and Patrick are now healthy and living with an amazing Christian family.

G42 will be a launching pad for Martha.  While at the school, the teachers will work together to help Martha achieve her Kingdom Dream.  I simply cannot wait to see what the Lord does through Martha while at G42 and after.  I write Martha’s story to share with you an opportunity for 2011.  Martha will be gone for 6 months and needs to raise support during this time.  Retouch is partnering with Martha to help her achieve her dream and be equipped to touch the nations.  We are launching a new sponsorship program for the next six months.  Below are the different sponsorship options – with each one you receive a different level of collectible photographs.  This is a great cause to donate to this holiday season, and the photographs make great gifts!!  To join the program, simply select which option you want and follow the below instructions.  Thank you for all of your continued support and encouragement!
