I have a friend and her husband who have just been “commissioned” to go on a mission in Ecuador. Being “commissioned” is a big deal! To be commissioned for a specific mission is to entrust that person or group of people with supervisory power or authority. It is authority granted for a particular action or function (Dictionary.com). In their case, they will be helping and taking care of those who do not have a means for dental care. While not all of us have those specific skills, we are commissioned by God every single day for the sake of the Gospel!
