Eastward exists to help you make the most of your life and your opportunities. This means maximising all of the gifts, talents, intelligence and skills that God has given you, and utilising them for your joy and His glory. Eastward is about helping you become like Jesus.
God is calling you to experience restoration into His image, and to give this same message to others.
"The harvest truly is great, but the labourers are few; pray ye therefore the Lord of the harvest, that He would send forth
labourers into His harvest."
Are you not one that is listening to His call? Will you go?
"Workers are needed now. As a people, we are not doing one fiftieth of what we might do as active missionaries. If we were only vitalized by the Holy Spirit, there would be a hundred missionaries where there is now one. But where are the missionaries? Has not the truth for this time power to stir the souls of those who claim to believe it?"
Counsels on Health, 507.
Central to your happiness is how you spend your time and energy. As a Christian living in the last days of earth’s history you have no time to waste. Every moment counts, every move counts.
There is nothing more rewarding or exciting than seeing people accept Christ as their Saviour and embrace the truths of God’s Word. Many Christians long to effectively witness for God, but they lack the training that will enable them to be successful.
"One worker who has been trained and educated for the work, who is controlled by the Spirit of Christ,will accomplish far more than ten labourers who go out deficient in knowledge, and weak in the faith. One who works in harmony with the counsel of God, and in unity with the brethren, will be more efficient to do good,than ten will be who do not realize the necessity of depending upon God, and of acting in harmony with the general plan of the work."
It is our prayerful hope that God will use Eastward in a mighty way to help inspire and train you for His cause.
