The idea to create the blog To Reach The One (TRTO) came to me in my prayer time 5 years ago. I was on my lunch break and in my devotion time when the Lord spoke to create a blog to empower and encourage the one person who may be struggling in their faith, who do not have faith and is looking, who may need to brush up on some knowledge, or just need a word of encouragement. The thought was that if we (Sha and I ) could reach one, that one could give birth to millions. Over the past few years, the dream got crowded with a new job, new place, new relationships and life period. We tried to revive it in the midst of chaos, however, life snuffed it out. But even with the false starts and busy life, there was always a tug of what about the one? Even if it’s just the one, is it not worth it?
TRTO was founded and based on Luke 15:4 -6.It states
What man among you, who has 100 sheep and loses one of them, does not leave the 99 in the open field and go after the lost one until he finds it? When he has found it, he joyfully puts it on his shoulders, and coming home, he calls his friends and neighbors together, saying to them, ‘Rejoice with me, because I have found my lost sheep!’ I tell you, in the same way, there will be more joy in heaven over one sinner who repents than over 99 righteous people who don’t need repentance.
Though we were missing in action, the mission was not missing from our hearts. Our focus and desire have always been to make sure we equip and empower people to live the life God created them to live.In order to do such, this means we will have to tackle some areas that may cause you to rethink mindsets, self-evaluate, and push you to make some changes. This also goes for us (Sha and I ) as we walk this journey with you. We will share our experiences and revelations in faith that it will help someone make sense of this journey called life. And even if it is just for the one, we are standing here recommitted and on fire to bring to you a word of encouragement and empowerment to continue your journey.
