Sending Out Walkers
We believe that now is the time when our God is stirring people's hearts to regather. With all of our hearts, we want to find others with the same hearts as us. We don't know where they will be, so we send out pairs of walkers.
They go without money or a plan. At each step, they pray to know which way to go.
If you see a pair walking along the road, you could give them a ride, or a drink of water. And they'd be happy to share a conversation with you.
They typically won't have phones or computers, but they sometimes will call home and let their community know how they are doing. So if you would like to have them visit, call the nearest community and let them know.
We are looking for the lost sheep of the house of Israel. Maybe you are one!
Later on the Lord commissioned seventy other disciples and sent them off in twos as advance-parties into every town and district where he intended to go.
“There is a great harvest,” he told them, “but only a few are working in it—which means you must pray to the Lord of the harvest that he will send out more reapers.
“Now go on your way. I am sending you out like lambs among wolves. Don’t carry a purse or a pair of shoes, and don’t stop to pass the time of day with anyone you meet on the road. When you go into a house, say first of all, ‘Peace be to this household!’ If there is a lover of peace there, he will accept your words of blessing, and if not, they will come back to you. Stay in the same house and eat and drink whatever they put before you—a workman deserves his wages. But don’t move from one house to another.
Whatever town you go into and the people welcome you, eat the meals they give you and heal the people who are ill there. Tell them, ‘The kingdom of God is very near to you now.’ But whenever you come into a town and they will not welcome you, you must go into the streets and say, ‘We brush off even the dust of your town from our feet as a protest against you. But it is still true that the kingdom of God has arrived! I assure you that it will be better for Sodom in ‘that day’ than for that town.
Then he added to the seventy, “Whoever listens to you is listening to me, and the man who has no use for you has no use for me either. And the man who has no use for me has no use for the one who sent me!”Luke 10 (portions)
