Sometimes, we need to turn off all the noise surrounding us to be able to hear God speak.
OneWeekend is a special time to step away from the daily hustle and bustle to slow down and truly hear what the Lord is saying to you regarding your life and the calling he has given you as his disciple.
Watch the video or read this real testimony of how OneWeekend reminded Lora and Jason what is really important in life.
Jason: “For me, OneWeekend really just helped to confirm God’s calling on my life and allowed me to see that One Mission Society and One Mission Kids was the answer to the call of my heart, which was to serve the Lord in full-time children’s ministry.
"We were engaged at the time, and now we’re married. But at that time one of the things that was going through my head was, 'What am I going to be able to learn? Is this just going to be a review of things I have heard my whole life?' But one of the things I was not expecting was it brought us closer together, being able to see missions from the same perspective.
"At the same time, I was reminded of something very important that anybody in ministry, no matter how many years you have been involved, needs to be reminded of and that’s the fact that God cares more about our relationship with him than he does with what we’re doing for him. And it’s easy to get so busy all the time doing great things for him that we kind of forget about the relationship part, and OneWeekend was a good reminder of that."
Lora: "For me, the best reminder or encouragement that I received at OneWeekend was to know that the desires of my heart, when I surrendered them to the Lord, he would fulfill them with a calling or a ministry that was exactly what the desires of my heart were all along.”
