It was just a couple days after having been asked to be the long term Regional Executive Officer for AIM Central Region. It was a role I could barely imagine filling. I’d rather sit in old familiar seats.

Now my first morning in Adi, Congo, I’m back in the seat of a Massey Ferguson. I was comfortable in those seats fifty years ago as a Florida farm boy. Again today, it felt good, although scraping dirt from an ant hill taller than the tractor was new on my list of farming activities.

Two hours later, I was in clean clothes being welcomed by the singing Bible Institute students in a royal “Big Man” welcome. Surprisingly, that seat felt comfortable also. Despite feeling unworthy to represent the century old presence of AIM and receive their welcome and hear their requests, it was a joy to worship and pray with them and to encourage them that “It’s all about Jesus!”

Perhaps I needed the reminder more than they. It’s not all about seats in which we expect to be comfortable.
