This burial form captures the martyr’s heart that those who are a part of To Every Tribe must embrace. It is a sobering document to read/sign but behind my signature are many sobering conversations between me and Betsy about the reality of laying our lives down for the name of Jesus Christ.
Our family with the other Center for Pioneer Church Planting families listening to David Sitton explain the significance of the moment and the call to lay down our lives for the name of Jesus.
Me signing the burial form. I intentionally brought Ethan and Titus up there because they are my little men and I thought it was important to see that Jesus means everything to daddy (and mommy of course!)
These are the missionaries from the CPCP who also signed the burial form that day.
Missionaries and our families after signing the burial form. Doing ministry in Northern MX places a certain reality in signing this form for all of us. For the missionaries and their families above this is not just a tradition – it is a REAL proclamation of the supremacy of Christ in our lives.
