Can a mustard seed move a mountain (Mat 17:20)? Can 2 fish and 5 loaves feed thousands (John 6: 5-14)? To do so takes exponential thinking, imagination…possibilities and yes the faith that can make it so.
My name is Craig Robinson and I am a Christian Businessman. I own and operate (ICI) Insurance Consultants International, a family owned global health and travel insurance broker/agency.
For the past 17 years, our business plan we pray every morning is “Send us Who you want us to Serve”. Crazy how that might sound to the business world, our success has developed in to more than just selling insurance, but a ministry in its own right of finding solutions and providing the kind of customer service missionaries need.
Introducing Gary and Lisa Black
When a position opens at our firm we pray the same… “Send Whom you want to Serve with Us”. In May, he sent us Lisa Black.
Lisa is the wife of Gary Black, one of the founders of Rock the Nation, Director of Adventures in Mission’s and The World Race. They have served as missionaries in Swaziland, Africa and have ministered all over the planet.
Recently through a series of events, encouragement from several mission minded mentors and through prayerful consideration, Gary and Lisa have come to know that they are being called back to the mission field to serve in Spain under Andrew Shearman at (G42 Leadership Academy). Here they will return to their calling of training up, investing and leading the next generation to fulfill their destinies in the great commission.
WE NEED YOUR MUSTARD SEED ….YOUR FISH AND LOAF OF BREAD!!
In the Bible it is told that the greatest missionary, Paul, was supported by those who believed in his ministry, but he also supported himself as a “tentmaker”. (Acts 18-2-3) It appears that Paul might have been the forerunner of the modern mission’s movement of BAM-Business as Missions whereby missionaries help support themselves by finding jobs, starting a business, and engaging in the residential, business community that the missionary serves. Interesting article: (TentMaker)
Here is the exciting part:
When you purchase your overseas expat health insurance, short-term mission trip insurance, trip cancellation coverage when you book your cruise through Lisa imagine this…
The income derived from your purchase will help support the Black’s “tentmaking” business while on the mission field. They will be able to teach, lead and inspire the guy/gal sitting in the 3rd row of the class…who goes on to become a missionary…who serves in a village…who teaches a kid…and that kid becomes a Pastor…who starts a church …that serves hundred’s in his lifetime…who reaches the ears of those whom have never heard…that maybe the very ones you will meet in Heaven…who will thank you for your role in how they got there.
You may have never thought of how the exponential propagation of a simple transaction, could affect so many lives beyond your imagination…neither did the boy (John 6:9) who offered his two fish and 5 loaves!
On behalf of the staff at Insurance Consultants Int’l (About Us) we want you to know that we have the Black’s back. Our combined experience of over 60 years will have your back too!
If you would like to move your business to help support the Blacks please call us at 800-576-2674 or email Craig@missiontripinsurance.com.
