I think that I know what I want to do as a missionary. I want to get prepared to ride whatever wave God puts in front of me, then ride it. I want to learn Japanese and learn what it takes for a Japanese church to function, then I want to go start some.
I can’t get much more specific than that at the moment. In the end, it’s up to God to provide “the wave” (that is, a ministry situation where I will see fruit). However, the best thing I can do towards being fruitful is to spend the next couple years learning to surf, so to speak. I must get ready, then seize whatever opportunity He gives me to glorify Him and advance the kingdom.
