Being Missional

While listening to Mark Moore, CEO of Mana Nutrition, speak to our students and faculty yesterday, I had two thoughts run through my mind almost simultaneously:

1. Wow! The work they are doing is incredible. They are really making a difference in people’s lives.
2. Am I being missional enough here in Little Rock? Should we be considering international missions?

In fact, any time I hear a missionary speak or spend time with one, I have those two thoughts. When I hear of their sacrifices and the life changes their families have made to work internationally, I wonder if we’re doing enough or if we’ve chosen an “easier” path.

After chapel, I learned a little more about Mana Nutrition and RUFT (ready-to-use therapeutic food), and I had another thought when I came across a picture of the US factory where the RUFT packets are manufactured.

Just like every organization on the planet, this RUFT factory has two types of employees— those who see their job as a mission and those who see their job as a job (and it’s pretty easy to tell them apart). Geographical location has little to do with it; instead, it’s simply a matter of the heart.

I hope we all see our work at CAC as a mission— and I hope our students see that in us 10 days out of 10.
