Pass the Eyeballs, Please!

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to live in another culture, especially one contrasting your own in almost every way? Ever imagined the new sights, sounds, tastes and ways of relating you would encounter on a daily basis? Does it sound fulfilling and adventurous, or more like a life-altering sacrifice and cross to bear?

Lily is an artist in her early 20s. She made the decision to follow God’s heart of love for the lost all the way to Central Asia. Lily, a missionary with YWAM (Youth with a Mission), recently wrote about an experience she had at a local wedding.

Lily writes, “Chris, an American living in Central Asia, held out a slimy orb. ‘If you eat it you can tell all your friends.’ A glistening sheep’s eye stared back at me.”

To read about Lily’s experience with the sheep’s eyeball and some of her other experiences as a missionary, visit: “The Joy of Going.”
