In the past seven days I have had interaction with three young men. None of them have reached their 23rd birthday. All of them are on mission for Jesus in a big-time way. Each of the men is from Pensacola. Let me tell you about them without using names. To do so might endanger one or two of them.
Missionary #1 is giving three years of his life to touch an unreached people group in a remote location around the world. He has sacrificed family and comfort to follow Jesus. He tells me by e-mail Christ alone is his sufficiency.
Missionary #2 is on a college campus in the state of Florida. He has been a catalyst in a prayer movement on campus that is having a powerful impact. He has stepped out in humility to lead. He tells me he is believing God for a spiritual awakening in America. Hallelujah!
Missionary #3 is building an orphanage and doing evangelistic work in India. He is raising the money to build a ministry in a Gospel-starved part of the world. As he explained his vision to me he revealed his passion, faith and fire! He believes the power of God will be his strength and portion for the vision he has.
In 1971 I experienced revival in the last portion of the Jesus Movement. As I became a pastor I started praying for God to do it again in America among the young generation. I am seeing the stirring of revival. The NEXT GENERATION is coming alive. Blessed be the name of the Lord!
