Two missionaries stumbled upon some very hostile cannibals who put them in a large pot of water, built a huge fire under it, and left them there. A few minutes later, one of the missionaries starts to laugh uncontrollably. The other missionary can’t believe it! He says, “What’s wrong with you? We’re being boiled alive! They’re gonna eat us! What could possibly be funny at a time like this?” The other missionary says, “I just peed in the soup.”
Heather and I love Walker Moore. He has been our friend since 2002. More about who he is and what he does in a moment. After being a missionary for some 40 years now. That’s a lot of work.
But Walker is not a normal missionary. He has taken teenagers to some of the most remote places in the world. They put on a play about the crucifixion story of Jesus and has changed countless lives. He also doesn’t just leave them. He comes back to check on their progress.
I know he reads this blog everyday so can know how much he is loved.
He came to our church, we all talked and a life time friendship developed. We don’t get to see him often enough, but we had dinner last Saturday and it was wonderful. He told us that at age 60+, he felt the desire to climb Mt.Kilimijaro. It’s only the second largest mountain on the planet.
He went on and told us most of the amazing stories about the team of men who helped and directed him. Why? Because he was carrying a 90 pound cross with him to put at the top of the mountain. Amazing!
Walker and his team have dedicated their lives to taking teenagers and changing their lives. So many people have come to know Jesus as their Lord and Savior. That is their purpose and that is tremendous.
Walker couldn’t speak well when he was a kid. In fact, people called him retarded. 40 years later he has spoken at some of the largest events in the world. He has spoken all over the world. He has been asked to be the keynote speaker at thousands of conferences and events.
