Congratulations to Axel Sawyer!
Congratulations to Axel Sayer, WMU's newest Youth Advisory Panelist. Axel is a senior and a member of Youth on Mission at Flat Rock Baptist Church, Iva.
Missions is something very dear to Axel: "Since Jesus commanded us to participate in missions by spreading His name, it should be important to all Christians. It is also important to me because just going to school or walking through my neighborhood, I can see a need for Jesus all around me. It also is important to me because it is through missions that I was saved."
Axel also knows the importance of living a missions lifestyle: "Living a missions lifestyle doesn't have to be difficult. The best way to participate in missions is to share the love of Jesus with others. Saying "Hey!" to someone or complimenting someone or even giving someone a hug can show the love of Jesus to others. There are people that walk down the halls of our school or into our workplace that do not know what it feels like to be loved. You may be the only person that speaks to these people. It is our job to love every single person that we come in contact with every single day. If we show love to others, they will know that we are Christians and will eventually become curious about it. This is the perfect opportunity to tell someone about Jesus and how to be saved."
