Brian, the Director of Extreme Nazarene, sent us the official purpose statement the other day.
"The purpose of EXTREME is to seek and deploy people into an extreme global expansion of the Kingdom of God by prayerfully and thoughtfully engaging the specific talents, skills, experience and resources God has given them and to further develop them into permanent full-time constructors of the Kingdom."
I found this statement so perfect because it so perfectly describes just what Extreme has done for us. We had been seeking the Lord and asking what He wanted for us, where He wanted us to go...we were willing but we just didn't know where to go or what to do. We began praying and seeking last January, we tried many avenues and the Lord closed many doors. When we heard about Extreme Peru we knew this was what we had been waiting for, what the Lord had been "holding" us for. The Lord is so good and we feel so blessed to be a part of this ministry. We are thankful to the Lord and thankful to the visionaries of Extreme for providing an avenue to serve the Lord and spread the Gospel to the nations!
