Seriously What’s With The Gumby?

In 1995 David Harms, the founder of i58:10 Media, took his first mission trip to Africa. In preparation for that trip he was given a small Gumby figurine to put in his pocket as a reminder to “be flexible” when his western worldview collided with a third world environment. Since that first trip over 20 years ago, having a Gumby in his pocket has taken on the deeper meaning of always being open to how God is leading.

It is the un-official mascot of i58:10 Media as a reminder that God is in control, not us, and it’s up to us to confirm to God’s will not our own.
