It brought to mind missions – cross cultural discipleship – it requires a team, and the purpose of missions is far grander than that of a chair.  The ultimate purpose of missions is to bring joy to all nations, tongues and tribes so the adoration and ...

God School

Posted by:

My eight year old niece, whom mchild studyingy family frequently refers to as “Little Lizzie”, is having a difficult time understanding why I have to move so far away from her. Last week I was trying to explain to her the necessity of missions and why I am leaving. Thinking that I am preparing to return to school, she asked, “But when are you going to be done with God school?” As I chuckled the Lord began working in my own ...

God Provides!

As I opened the truck of my car thoughts raced through my mind, “where is it? I just had it an hour ago!”. I frantically searched every corner of my car. In the front seat I found the power cord, but no computer. “Why didn’t I save my ministry presentation on another device? Lord, I don’t know how I will be able to re-create it.”   It was a week before I was scheduled to present my ministry with NTM before my church family, ...

Posted by:

Some reasons that excellence can take a long time.

MOZ_Mwinika__129

When we consider the urgency of the task of world evangelism, some may wonder why we would choose a church planting strategy that takes upwards of 20 years. Can’t we accomplish it faster? Isn’t there a more efficient way? Here are some of the reasons that we think a long term strategy is best.
To Communicate Clearly

Even in our own culture, clear communication is no easy task. When we step out of our world and ...

Alimpu recovering from sickness 2008

Sitting in the darkness of the smoke filled tribal hut, I shifted positions, trying to get more comfortable on the woven bamboo floor. The only light in the jungle hut was from the smoldering fire in the center of the floor, but even that was suppressed by a thick blanket of smoke trying to work its way up through the thatched roofing. My eyes were stinging because of the smoke and I was finding the heat ...
