Nate Saint on Things That Hold Us Back
I had a friend over today and we were talking about missions. We were discussing why more American Christians aren't willing to leave it all and serve Christ with their lives in places that are in desperate need of hearing the Gospel. Even Nate Saint wondered about it, too, and relates it this way:
"We make sure that we don't carry anything in the airplane that isn't necessary. When our mission bought the plane, it had nice, soft seats in it. But we found that these seats weighed amost eight pounds each. So we decided to use harder seats that weighed only one pound, and take seven pounds of extra food and cargo.
