As missionaries serve around the world, they often find themselves on the frontlines of disasters, whether it be famine, sickness, or flood. One of my dearest friends was one of the first people on the ground after the tsunami that devastated SE Asia in 2004 and killed over 200,000 people. He was a missionary in […]

One of the hardest challenges when moving to the mission field is leaving behind our home church and integrating into a new church in our country of service. When we go to the field, we can’t take our church or life group with us. As missionaries, we are called to leave our community of faith […]

“Try this approach, O believer, whenever you are sad of heart and in heaviness of spirit: Forget yourself and your little concerns, and seek the welfare and prosperity of Zion. When you kneel in prayer to God, limit not your petition to the narrow circle of your own life, tried though it be, but send […]

I distinctly remember my first Ramadan experience in the fall of 2008 in the UAE. I had just started with my firm and was invited to a huge Iftar dinner, with major VIPs at a five-star hotel, starting at 7pm. As a complete rookie to Ramadan, I left my flat at 6:30 sharp, dressed up, […]

In the midst of a global pandemic, we can respond in a number of different ways, from the distraction of countless hours watching our favorite movies or tackling long-awaited home projects—perhaps even denying the seriousness of the whole thing. But my hope is that for us who are in Christ, Covid-19 will serve as a […]

In the months before my husband and I departed for the mission field, our pastor taught expositionally through the book of Exodus. Previous studies of this book had often left me rolling my eyes at the Israelites. How could the people of Israel be so fearful when they had witnessed miracles firsthand? Their firstborn sons […]

Sometimes it takes a worldwide pandemic to remind us who we truly are. Was it really just last month that we could shop without worrying about empty shelves? Was it really only a few weeks ago that our retirement seemed so secure, our jobs seemed so steady, and the world seemed so normal, so safe? […]

I am writing this at the time of two very significant events: a global pandemic that has dramatically altered life for nearly everyone around the world and the celebration of the historical resurrection of Jesus Christ. One may feel more imminent, and therefore demand more of our attention at this moment. But as Christians, we must […]

We live in uncertain times. Every day, I turn on the news to get the latest updates about the growing number of patients falling prey to COVID-19, about the new restrictions in place to limit its spread, and about how its ripple effects are spreading to every corner of the globe. The common refrain you […]

My daughter-in-law asked me how her homebound sons can pray for missionaries and missions during this time of lockdown due to COVID-19. Her question was a great one, and I thought perhaps there were other parents who would like to lead their children to pray for missionaries as well. All around the world there are […]
