We need to be like them.

On this day in 1620 the Mayflower left England for Plymouth, Massachusetts.
Many of the passengers left England because they believed God wanted them to leave.
Two of them died on the way over.
One baby was born on the trip.
A second was born during the winter.
Sixty-six days later they landed and spent the winter in Cape Cod on the ship.
Half of the passengers died that first winter.
Half of the crew too. 
In April, the ship went back to England.
None of the survivors went back.
Not one.
They went ashore and stayed.

I pray to have this kind of resolve in my life.
For the sake of the Gospel.
