Today I had a fascinating Skype conversation with a young man named Nate Eastman. A few years ago Nate met some believers from his small town in Northern Michigan. They played basketball together. His friends were believers. Soon they invited Nate to a Bible study. As the men studied the Gospel of John a chapter at a time, Nate became of follower of Jesus Christ.
A friend (Jon Ford) gave Nate a recording of a biographical sketch by John Piper about the life of Adonirum Judson. “Listen to this and you just might sell everything you have and be a missionary some day,” He said. A about six months ago Nate and his wife decided to sell everything they had and go to France to reach the Basque people in the Pyrenees Mountains of northern France for Christ.
There is nothing in the world more exciting or more significant than the mission of Jesus. There is nothing as satisfying as devotion to that mission.
I’ve posted a talk he gave to his local church. When you have a bit of time, you should listen to it and get in touch with Nate. He is a fine young man who has clearly been deeply touched by God and stirred up for the mission of Jesus and the glory of Jesus.
