Noah was over 500 years old when he "fathered Shem, Ham, and Japheth," and then he built the ark (Genesis 5:32, ESV).  Abraham was 100 and Sarah was 90 when she bore Isaac (Genesis 17:17, ESV).  And on today's Footsteps, missionary Fred Jonkman mentions a couple that "were in their 80's when they came" to Ecuador to minister alongside them.  That's why Fred says, "Never think you're too old to go into missions."  So, that's another excuse you can quit using for not answering God's call into missionary service!
