Next Generation Pastor Part I

Next Generation Pastor Part I

When I woke up that cold November morning in our sixth-floor apartment in Madrid, Spain, I felt different. I had always wanted to be a doctor. Whenever someone would ask, “What do you want to do with your life or what are you going to do when you grow up?” I would always reply: “A missionary doctor.” Now, overnight, at age 15, all the sudden, the vision for my life had changed.
