And He ordained twelve, that they should be with him, and that he might send them forth to preach, and to have power to heal sicknesses… -Mark 3:14,15
In the first century twelve men turned the world upside down. Moved by the Holy Spirit they carried the gospel to the then known world (Colossians 1:23), illustrating that God does not need a large number of workers but rather consecrated individuals. On June 15, 2014 M.E.E.T. Ministry had the awesome privilege of consecrating twelve men and women to the service of the Lord. It was a solemn and beautiful weekend as these individuals went forth into the vineyard, answering the call of the Master for more laborers. The fact that we had a school this year was a miracle all by itself. The school was cancelled at one point but the Lord interposed at the eleventh hour in a miraculous way.
It is hard to believe that four months have passed. It seems as though it was only yesterday that these men and women came from as far as Scotland and as near as Alabama to be trained as Gospel Medical Missionaries. From that first week we knew that there was something different about this group. During that week a snowstorm swept through the campus, knocking down power lines and causing serious damage. The dorm was uninhabitable for a number of days. Yet there was not a murmur of complaint from any of the students. They took everything in stride recognizing that “afflictions, crosses, temptations, adversity, and our varied trials are God's workmen to refine us, sanctify us, and fit us for the heavenly garner” (AG 87). This spirit of dedication and perseverance was ongoing throughout the course of the training. The students ranging from age 18 to 40 plus were focused and serious. They seemed prepared to receive of the Lord and would not allow anything to distract them.
This school year we were privileged to have Bob Jorgenson, Eugene Prewitt and Norman McNulty serve as guest instructors. The classroom time was accompanied with practical experience in the lifestyle center, garden, and kitchen. Both men and women had the opportunity to learn how to perform routine maintenance on cars as well as the art of sewing. Students and staff participated in a weekend of prayer and fasting that included an all night prayer meeting. It was a remarkable time as each student sought the Lord in prayer that they might understand His specific will for their lives.
The consecration weekend was a wonderful culmination of these four months. The services were spirit filled as these precious souls were committed to the Lord. On Friday evening at our communion service we were reminded that “Time Would Tell” and that now is the time for us to come clean with the Lord and ensure we are not living a lie. Sabbath morning the Lord highlighted the fact that He has a thousand ways of providing for us. We need never be anxious for in every difficulty He has His way prepared to bring relief. For divine worship the curtain was pulled back on the schemes of the devil. The students were instructed on the various devices that Satan would use to try to lessen their effectiveness or distract them from the work that lies before them. Finally on Sunday these twelve precious souls chose to accept God’s calling on their lives and to consecrate themselves to His service.
Please continue to pray for these men and women as they go forth to labor. We know that the devil will seek to do all he can to sidetrack them; your prayers will help to encourage and strengthen their hearts.
