Never too old for missions

By July 28, 2010

Namibia (MNN) — Think you're too old for international missions? That's what one woman thought, too, until God called her to Africa.

After her husband passed away and her three children grew up, Cindy McClamma started to pray about the future. From 2004 to 2007, she prayed hard about potentially joining the mission field in a way that fit her comfort zone. God had other plans.

By 2007, God had led McClamma to Africa Inland Mission. Once she began conversations with AIM, McClamma says doors started opening left and right. One thing became stunningly clear: God wanted her in Africa.

McClamma followed the call and moved to Namibia to work with a group known as Family Hope Services. FHS helps 450 AIDS orphans by providing necessities, education, and the Gospel. 50 of its children are fully sponsored. Sponsorship pays their school fees and provides personal care items.

Since McClamma has been working for FHS, she has been spotlighting some of these children in the FHS monthly newsletter which she writes and publishes. Every one of McClamma's featured children has obtained sponsorship as a result.

Cindy McClamma is just one example of God's reminder that he's not finished with us until he's finished with us. If you think God may be calling you to a life of missions, whether you're 25 or 65, start praying now.
