Oh…the Feet

“…How beautiful are the feet of those who bring Good News.” Romans 10:15b

I spent some time this afternoon looking out over our missionary training center campus here on Lake of the Ozarks (Missouri). Nearly 50 years ago the Lord granted NTM this land to raise up the next generation of laborers to go out in to the great harvest (Matthew 9:37a). Year after year many have prayed Matthew 9:37-38, prayed for more to laborers to come, and God has continued ...

TWO DITCHES

Posted by:

I have heard it said that Ministry Partnership Development (MPD) has two ditches. After five years of working through our own MPD and as a MPD training facilitator and coach, there is truth to the statement.

The Greatest Need in Missions

Posted by:

SEN_Budik__143This morning, we had a Prayer Emphasis chapel at the Missionary Training Center. Two periods of hearing about different NTM missionaries prayer needs around the world, and praying for them. Another need was also talked about, and prayed for, and that is the need for more workers. The great need for more to GO and give their lives to reach an unreached people group for Christ.

I have shared this burden many times over the last 4+ years and the need ...
