The Power of the Spirit

Have you felt the power? There is an electric feeling as you share Christ with someone who you know has never heard it before. It is the knowledge that the Spirit is opening your mouth to declare truth. You feel the gospel as the power of God being poured through you to them. One of…

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…

Haunting Questions

Haunting Questions

Every Christian needs a good theology of suffering. Why do bad things happen to people? Why is there hunger, poverty, and war? Moving overseas can bring these questions into stark focus. The guy who sells coconut snacks looked at me the other day and said, “This is all I do. I have no future. Can…

I Was Listening

Some people are in our lives for a time and then “disappear” for a while. Some time ago, we did a Bible study with a couple and recently re-connected with them. They would bring their teenage son with them when we would meet to study. This son admitted himself into a drug rehab center and…

In this case, through the years, many teachers have relocated to a place where it is difficult to acquire visas to live and work.
