A Piano Tuner called to go on Missions
By Rachel Edwards
I joined MKCC in 1988 and not only did I love the services, but I was enthralled by the stories of Missions Trips, made to the former Eastern Bloc, which George Ridley recounted.
I really wanted to go!
However, at the time I was working as a Piano Tuner in a factory setting that had non-negotiable, set holidays – boo!
During 1990 George shared his vision to start a 12-mth Bible School & Practical Ministries Program under the name of LightForce Europe. At one service I remember vividly, he preached on ‘The Harvest is plentiful but the workers are few’.
Right there in the service, I knew God was speaking to me powerfully and something had to change for me. The status quo could not remain. So in August 1990 I left a well-paid job and joined the 12-mth programme with LightForce Europe.
What on earth was I doing?
I had a house with a mortgage and now no more income! I also had no talents that I considered were needed on the mission field. So I stepped into the unknown with no idea where this new step of faith would take me!
But God saw my heart and He provided in Full. It was a life-changing decision – I never regretted it – and I continue to be involved with LightForce over 29yrs later.
Check out the opportunities to step out in faith and join LightForce International on a short term mission trip. It may well change your life!
