Phoebe's Refelctions on Being a Living Sermon

You may put us on a pedestal because we are in Madagascar, but if we aren't a living sermon and aren't sharing God, why are we here?  Why would you want to be a follower of us?
We have to be a living sermon, sharing God with everybody we come into contact with.  We have to be good leaders.  Why would we come if we're going to act and do the exact same things we do in the states?  As Christians, we must be intentionally living out God's message each day, here or there.
Philippians 1:27-30: Whatever happens, conduct yourselves in a manner worthy of the gospel of Christ. Then, whether I come and see you or only hear about you in my absence, I will know that you stand firm in the one Spirit,[a] striving together as one for the faith of the gospel 28 without being frightened in any way by those who oppose you. This is a sign to them that they will be destroyed, but that you will be saved—and that by God. 29 For it has been granted to you on behalf of Christ not only to believe in him, but also to suffer for him, 30 since you are going through the same struggle you saw I had, and now hear that I still have.  Think about it!
