Baby Steps

In November and December we took our first trip to South Asia, the region with the most Unreached Peoples Groups in the world. Thousands of unreached groups call this part of the world home. We were blown away by the vastness, the tremendous need for committed Gospel ministers, the poverty, the oppressive idolatrous false religion, the powerful anti-Christian sentiment of the government, and how much we have to ...

A Multitude of Hands

Posted by:

We were recently reading a book, which was explaining how to construct a simple plastic auditorium chair.  It takes hundreds of people with combined knowledge and allied skills.  No one person can do it all.

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 ...

Thankful for Ministry

We are so grateful for the privilege we have in being part of training students at Radius to go out and reach Unreached Peoples “in all the hard places.” We ...

Punjabi Sikhs

 

sikh_man_agra_09

America (and California in particular) is home to many Punjabi immigrants who are members of the Sikh religion. Sikhs are not Hindus, and are often mistaken for Muslims because of their turbans and beards. Sikhism is a monotheistic religion which was founded in the 15th century in the Punjab region of India, and it is currently the 5th largest religion in the world, numbering around 30 million followers–more than all the Jews, Baha’is and Confucianists combined!

You have probably seen Punjabi ...

Be a Life-Long Learner

Posted by:

Learning is a humbling experience, it shows you just how much you need to grow. And being a missionary is a job of constantly learning, constantly evaluating what you thought you knew, and looking at things in a new light, or at least a new frame of reference.  If you stop learning, you stop being effective.

The whole reason that we learn folk’s language and culture, is so that we can learn to see through their eye-glasses, and see the world as ...

“Now I Can Get off at the Right Bus Stop!”

Posted by:

“Now I can get off at the right bus stop!”

Yes, those were the words someone shouted with much joy in my…phonetics class!  I HAD to stop and say, ‘What?!’

It just so happens that he had been overseas for a year or so already, attempting to learn a new language.  But he’d never been taught how to say a g-fricative, so he couldn’t say the name of that street, both words of which started with…a g-fricative!  So he simply went on ...

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 ...
