Christine gave us two ways she encourages women to live on mission:
  1. Form a circle of confidants who will encourage you and pray for the relationships you are forming with unbelievers. 
  2. Train and teach those confidants about discipleship so they can form relationships outside of the church with unbelievers.

With all safety harnesses gone, He speeds your spiritual growth, knowing that you have nothing else to cling to other than Him. There, in that fragile spot, we learn to depend on Him."
