If you remember, one of my students is Narcisso. He was in one of my classes on evangelism and has regularly contacted me outside of class to talk about his work, his calling, and his dream.
He is self-employed as an ambulante, a salesperson who walks around selling little wares like crackers and posters on the street. Pictured with him is his box of stuff he was selling that day for .25 to 1.50.
“Hermano,” he greets me as I answer his phone call after I return from Nicaragua.
“I’m going to Peru to study missions — to take a 6 month course on high speed, down into 60 days — focused on working with indigenous groups.”
Knowing his plans, his dreams, and his diligence in pursuing those dreams of being on the mission field, I’m eager to find out how I can help. I know he’s been working on this dream for a while. The time of fulfillment is now.
Narcisso is a man of faith and has displayed the character over time that has convinced me of his calling.
He’s raising $400 to finish out some funding issues and needs it in 3 days. Panama has a hold on issusing passports, so he needs his passport to come through. His travel visa is set to expire if he doesn’t use it.
There is a lot of prayer requests in what he tells me — mountains need moving into the sea.
We give him an offering — so many people have invested in our dream to serve in Latin America. We want to help Narcisso reach his.
Over the next few days — all the funds come him for Narcisso. Passports come through. His visa is clear. It’s clear that God’s hand is on Narcisso.
He left for Peru.
I can’t wait for his return to see how he’s grown in his calling. To watch him grow in his calling is a blessing that we get to see. Our supporters enable us to invest in the lives of future missionaries such as Narcisso to make an impact around the world.
