Are You Willing?

“Do you know why I am a Christian?” I asked the church’s next-door neighbor as I gnawed on a roasted ear of corn during a barbecue just in front of the church. From where we talked, we could see the lights of a thousand skyscraper windows, blinking down on us in the twilight. “Your society…

God of All gods

God of All gods

She looked up at me with bright, innocent eyes. “That is our god,” she told me as we both looked at the picture of the man in an orange jumpsuit. We were at the home of non-Christian friends for a birthday party. This sweet little girl was a classmate of my seven year old daughter….

Why Missions?

Why Missions?

The fires in California last fall were the worst in it’s history. CNN reported approximately 8,000 firefighters deployed, 6,000 homes destroyed and 113,000 acres burned. Forty-four souls perished. Can you imagine if the authorities deployed 80% of the firefighters to an area with 20% of the fires, and the other 20% to an area with…

One Seed at a Time

One Seed at a Time

A few weeks ago, Kathy and I were grabbing a cup of coffee at the local supermarket. A retired couple were seated at a table near us. They nodded hello and we recognized the faces but did not know their names. When they rose to leave a half hour later, we struck up a conversation…

An Insurmountable Challenge

A large city, with no professing believers, and a community who doesn’t trust outsiders sounds like an insurmountable challenge. For our missionary team, this is the reality they live in every day.

When God Opens the Door

When God Opens the Door

How does a teacher in a staunchly secular public school system, find herself giving the gospel to the whole school at one time? Simple. She waits until asked by the principal. This unlikely scenario played out recently in an overseas school where a BMW missionary works. The God who holds all things in his hands,…

Shedding Misunderstanding

Shedding Misunderstanding

There it stood, a simple, common 2×5 garden shed, perched vexingly in the wrong spot. I had drawn a rectangle in the dirt exactly where I wanted the shed, stopping to repeat in clear, slow English, “please move the shed here.” Most Zulu speakers have some fluency in English. Yet, my Zulu friend, Senzo, had…

Does God Speak Luxembourgish?

Does God Speak Luxembourgish?

Fifty years ago you wouldn’t have thought so. The country used French and German for just about everything written or broadcast. No one could agree how to write the local national language, and it was hard to find modern literature in Luxembourgish. When Bible-believing Christians wanted to communicate the gospel among local people, foreign languages…
