Dear Missionary, Pastors are not an Obstacle

Dear Missionary, Pastors are not an Obstacle

Dear Missionary, pastors are not obstacles to ministry, they are your enablers. I know that the form of ministry has created a false dichotomy between both. Somehow the created perspective is that purposes of both are different enough that they must ‘compete’ for the same resources in order to complete God’s will. The mindset has…

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,…

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…

Why Does Your Church Support the Missionaries They Support?

I’m often invited to speak at churches about missions which provides opportunity to visit the the display of missionaries supported by the church. Most churches have a dedicated space in the building to display what they are doing in missions. As I look at the list, I…

She Named Him Emmanuel

She Named Him Emmanuel

In most of Africa, people leave their rural homes to go and work in the cities, living in temporary shacks. They travel home maybe once a month, or if they are fortunate, once a week. For this reason, Christmas is a favorite time of year. The cities empty out, the trains are clogged with people…

Have Yourself a Missionary Conference

Have Yourself a Missionary Conference

A number of years ago, a pastor whom I had met as a student called me to ask if I could come to his church in Maine and speak at a missions conference. I was to be overseas that week, and had to decline the invitation. He told me he would check again to see…
