A Certain Itinerant Pastor

Who is someone you admire because they dared to give their life to a mission? (Serendipity Bible Fourth Edition, page 1438).

Missions statements can be more or less general or concise and specific.  I have always seen my mission as applying my faith to practical (worldly) affairs.  This is a very general mission statement and can applied in more specific ways over time.  My father's mission was to be a local pastor in the Methodist church. A college president once offered him a faculty position, but daddy saw clearly his mission was that of an itinerate minister. His humble certitude stood him well during the vicissitudes of time. I especially prize that a member of a church daddy once served told me years later that my father's remarkable humility was just what the member needed at that point in his life and prompted him to join and remain faithful.
