Hello friend. We’re glad you’re here visiting our blog and we hope you’ll learn something new and helpful and maybe enjoy a laugh and a smile too.
We are Alan, Beth, Cameron and Dayton McManus. We’re serving our Lord Jesus Christ in central Mexico under a mission board that was originally called Central America Mission (est. 1890), later and currently called CAM International, and about to be called Camino Global.
While the message of the Gospel of Jesus Christ has never changed, sometimes we as messengers do change in order to share that message as effectively as possible. Nonetheless, we understand that salvation begins with God and ends with God. We are only tools in His hands to be used by the Master by His grace, for His glory and unto the fulfillment of His plan and purpose.
In our case, we do that as “missionaries to missionaries” helping many missionary families with the education of their children, usually homeschool families. We also enjoy sharing the reality of life in Christ and eternal life by grace alone through faith alone with those God puts into our path. Weekly Bible studies are also part of our routine.
We do a lot of different tasks that are all part of being disciples of Jesus Christ who make disciples (Matt. 28:18-20). No matter how we may make our annual, weekly or daily plans, the Lord knows exactly what He wants us to do (Prov. 16:9), even if we don’t always understand that beforehand like He does (Eph. 2:10).
Matthew 28:18-20 (NLT) “Jesus came and told his disciples, ‘I have been given all authority in heaven and on earth. Therefore, go and make disciples of all the nations,baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit. Teach these new disciples to obey all the commands I have given you. And be sure of this: I am with you always, even to the end of the age.'”
Proverbs 16:9 (NLT) “We can make our plans, but the LORD determines our steps.”
Ephesians 2:8-10 (NAS) “For by grace you have been saved through faith; and that not of yourselves, it is the gift of God; not as a result of works, so that no one may boast. For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand so that we would walk in them.”
