I’ve Been Given Much

    “I’ve Been Given Much,” New Era, Feb. 2004, 48

    I’ve Been Given Much

    On my first day in the mission field, I was homesick, hot, and questioning if I had what it takes to serve for two years. Why was I here at all? At church that day, the opening hymn was “Because I Have Been Given Much” (Hymns, no. 219). After singing that hymn, I knew why I was here. That hymn was the answer to my prayer.
