MISSIONARY JOURNAL – FELLOWSHIP SUSTAINS ME

Friday 12-11-09 / 6:25am @ CC’s Coffee on Johnston St.

Lotta catchin’ up to do since I last wrote. Plus, after this entry not sure how often I’ll write “MISSIONARY JOURNAL” entries that specifically refer to missions, since the next short term trip I go on will probably be Mardi Gras or Easter…. But then again, my plan until I enter Intake in 2010 is to be around FMC peeps and events as much as possible, so who knows? 🙂 I don’t remember much about last Saturday during the daytime. All I remember is heading out to FMC in the afternoon to visit with the missionaries and to attend “Lord’s Day”. It’s basically a communal meal that is liturgically influenced and includes prayer, song, praise and worship, testimony and sharing, scripture reading, and of course a shared meal.

It was my second time to do it and I really like it. You really get a sense of what a blessing it is to gather as community for a shared meal. I wonder if Jesus’ shared meals with his disciples had the same kind of vibe? After the meal, I stayed up visiting with the rest of the missionaries for awhile. The next day, woke up, prayed in the chapel, ate breakfast and then went to 10:30 Mass at St. Theresa’s in Abbeville with a few of the missionaries. After Mass, we came back and played some kind of ball toss game thingy. Me and Kristin Istre were on a team and we RULED! My apologies to the other missionaries that we DOMINATED, but it’s true. 🙂 I wouldn’t want to commit a sin by lying about it, would I? Then we watched the Saints defeat the Redskins in OT, 33-30, to go 12-0. It was the most utterly amazing and improbable come from behind win I’ve ever seen. We hooted and hollered, screamed and cheered, and let cries of “WHO DAT” ring through the air…….

MISSIONARY JOURNAL – HAD A GOOD JESUS VIBE GOIN ON

12-5-09 final installment

It’s a CD that has mission-themed songs and recordings and promotes missions. The vibe there was exactly like the vibe at Big Woods on Wednesday night. Seems like everybody knew everybody, and even if there was someone you didn’t know they were still really nice and willing to hang out and talk. I really believe that the missionary spirit is the reason why the vibe was so good on both nights, When I was talking with one of the missionaries, I found out that Saturday night they are having “Lord’s Day” at FMC. “Lord’s Day” is basically a meal within a prayer, and has a family atmosphere to it. It something done to welcome in the Sabbath Day. It’s such a blessing to attend (I did one a few weeks ago) and is the perfect mix of shared meal in community, prayer, and fellowship. Glad I found out about it cuz now I have something to do tomorrow night.

On a side note, I figured out that I want another foot tatoo since I can’t afford the big St. Benedict tatoo that I wanna get on my back. I want to get “Romans 10:15” tatooed on my left foot, b/c it speaks about how beautiful are the feet of those who bring the good news. I feel the need for another tat. 🙂 Also, I felt like the verse at the bottom of this page is a good one for me to hear at this point on my missionary journey. (Joshua 1:9) It’s nice to be reassured that God will take care of it all. Well, I better get goin. My hour is over and I’ve got to take up early in the morning. Dear Lord I pray that the missionary zeal you gave me would overflow into all areas of my life, that I would persevere in prayer and charity, get up when I fall down, conquer my sins, and have people be able to recognize the love of Christ in the way that I live my life. Amen!
