Answering the Call

Paul and Cyndy Teas worked for a camp that allowed them to host a week for kids with special needs at the end of summer. This was well received so they asked the CEO of the camp for a location for these kids for the whole summer.
He told them, “That’s your calling, not mine. You need to go do that on your own.” A year later, Camp Barnabas was launched.
Nehemiah realized Jerusalem needed rebuilt. In Nehemiah 2:5 he told the king, “If it pleases the king and if your servant has found favor in his sight, let him send me to the city in Judah where my fathers are buried so that I can rebuild it.”
Great leaders, like Paul, Cyndy, and Nehemiah make themselves available to meet needs!
