John Piper came to visit...

John Piper has spent the last week or so here in Ethiopia. He wrote a great blog post about some of his experiences here. It includes the following:
"Most of the peoples left to reach are hard to reach. What is needed is the commitment of a life, not just a year. A language to learn, a culture to know, a people to love, a gospel to speak, a church to plant, leaders to train — this is the pouring out of a life. May God give many of you this high and holy and hard calling."
I would echo his plea for long term missionaries. I would especially love to see more teachers devote their career to International Christian schools that support the work of frontier missions around the world as well as having a 7 hours-a-day, 5 days-a-week, 40 weeks-a-year for 13 years opportunity to point hundreds of children and young people to Christ.

Guys! That's our John Piper! His church was just 30 minutes from our house. Lots of our friends go there! We've met him before, but it's been years! Totally cool that you got to spend time with him! Hugs!
