Recently, I received an update from a missionary friend serving in Bohol, Philippines. She shared, "The Lord allowed us to share the Gospel in 733 schools, 183,035 people heard the Good News of Jesus, and 174,082 of those prayed to receive Jesus as their Savior! I'm still in awe of what The Lord is doing here and that He is choosing to allow me to be a part of it:) So blessed!"
This missionary is living out Jesus' promise in Acts 1:8 and is experiencing the outworking of Ephesians 3:20- God doing immeasurably more than she asked or imagined. To do what she's doing, she's yielded herself to be filled with the Holy Spirit. If she operated only in her own wisdom, creativity, and strength, she'd not be seeing this number of souls accepting Jesus as Lord and Savior. In fact, if she lived only for herself, she probably wouldn't be on the mission field at all.
