This thread is to relate stories of those who have earned scars serving Jesus Christ, preferably in the harvest field: witnessing, soul-winning, preaching, missions, church planting, etc. This doesn't mean that stories not connected with these areas will be rebuked of course, as long as the scars are for the cause of Jesus Christ. The scars may be actual physical scars. They may be emotional scars from persecution or rejection. They may involve a physical condition incurred while serving Christ. They may involve something else I've not thought of. They are simply scars for Jesus of whatever kind. There is only one rule here: please do not write in the first person about yourself, such as, "When I was out doing street evangelism one day, a guy punched me...." Please write about other people, or if you do write about yourself and a unique experience you had, make it third person: "Bill (not his real name) was out doing street evangelism one day...."
