Well it’s here! 🙂 The week we will be giving away a trip to the annual OG Summit, January 1-3, 2014. This week the posts will be different from what you normally read. You will have a chance to read testimonies from ladies who have attended the summit, and get a more personal feel of what to expect when you attend. Some will be from Authors on the WBTS blog, and others from young ladies who have taken short-term trips, and are very involved in serving Christ with their lives.
After you follow the instructions below, you will see a box that says “Send me to the OG Summit!”. There you will have the opportunity to earn a total of three entries.

The first post is from a young lady who gave six months to helping a missionary in North Africa.
God Has a Place in Missions for Me?
It’s a word I’ve been familiar with since I’ve been a young girl. No, I didn’t grow up as a missionary kid, but once a month I was able to meet a visiting missionary at my home church in Tennessee. Their video presentations would grip my heart and afterwards I would often think, “These people are amazing! They are going to a foreign country and sacrificing everything for God! They must be some very special people for God to have picked them for such an honorable job.” Yes, I thought this away about all of the missionaries, and I never found out they aren’t any different from me until I was able to go to a place where I could rub shoulders with dozens of missionaries and have the chance to talk to and spend time with them. I also didn’t see how God could use me in the same way He was using them until I went to this unique event. What event am I talking about? The Our Generation Summit.
My thinking had greatly changed when I was able to attend my first Summit. Not only was I able to meet and speak with men and women with a passion to serve Jesus in missions, but I was challenged to do the same! I’m sure those visiting missionaries at my church would have loved for others to join them, but I was never so encouraged to seek how God could use me in missions as I was when I went to the Summit. The missionaries at the Summit aren’t necessarily just interested in getting people to learn more about their field, but they are interested in getting people involved in the Great Commission. Speaker after speaker would share a message from God’s Word about the importance of taking the Gospel to the world, and with each message I became more and more encouraged to see how God wants to use me in His plan for the world.
So, if you’re considering making this year your first Summit then I’ve got the answer for you: Do it! Believe me, you won’t regret it. There will be many people available and ready to help you find your place in world evangelism.
Also, if you’re considering going again this year, try to make this your best Summit yet by meeting as many missionaries and getting as much information as you can about the mission trips they have available for next summer.
I’m praying that God makes this year even better than the last. Cant’ wait to see you there!
