The Shocking Reality

Jesus told them, "The harvest is plentiful, but the workers are few. Ask the Lord of the harvest, therefore, to send out workers into his harvest field. (Luke 10:2)

Our static probe man decided to leave on the previous helicopter. This left only two of us on the PZ to slingload the last humvee. One to guide the helicopter and the other to hook-up the vehicle to the aircraft. As the giant CH-47 flew in to pick up the humvee, I slammed the clevis onto the cargo hook unassisted. I got the shock of my life! The jolt threw me off the vehicle. You see, the static probe man’s job was to discharge all the static electricity from the aircraft. Though we were short a key man, we drove on with the mission. We are doing this in the Church today. We are missing key men and women to help build the Kingdom of God. Two things; 1. Prepare yourself to be shocked by those who simply ‘Stand-by.’ 2. Pray that others will roll up their sleeves and join us in the effort.
