We Said “Yes”

2013-03_LT-FarrisFam

“For nothing is impossible for God” (Luke 1:37).

We did it! We finally said, “YES!” After two years of discernment we have decided to sell everything we have and follow Jesus by answering His call for our family to become full-time missionaries.

This decision will effect everyone we hold dear, from our extended family, to our beloved community. A decision, we pray, that will encourage others to live out their call to be missionaries in their everyday life.

There are moments for us all when the voice of God is louder than the voice of the world. It is in listening to God in these moments that His grace allows us to be reduced to nothing so He can use us. It is with great trembling we accept the call to live fearlessly.

On this the Feast of St. Joseph, we begin our venture into the unknown with the Holy Family as our guide. At the end of our journey we want to be able to say, “We moved. Despite our fear, our laziness, and our pride, we chose to move.”

Thank you to all who will choose to support us through prayers and donations and to Life Teen for being open to the missionary spirit. We are eternally grateful.

Jesus, Mary, and Joseph, pray for us!

In Christ’s love,
The Farris Family
