Stay? Or leave? Well, let’s see.
It might be good to remember the reason we got into this “job” in the first place. God’s truth is so glorious that it MUST be shared. We know the only solution to the sin and death problem that plagues mankind! The need of man will never change–and the answer remains the same. Jesus said, “Go. And I will be with you!” So, we go!
Missionaries are real humans who experience life just like everyone else. They aren’t super heroes as they are often portrayed by “the ...

The Bible has a lot to say about the two words in the title, and both are used to get the work of God done in the world today. Money can be a friend or foe while trying to live our lives in a godly manner. Money can be used by God to get His work done here on earth. It can also be used by Satan to get Christians off track.

More than a few times that night I stood back and marveled at the Lord's provision as the room was filled with friends that just one year ago we hadn’t even met! There were neighbors, home school families, guys I coach with, church friends, and others whom, in just one year, we had broken bread with, laughed with, cried with, and built relationships with.

Prayer has been difficult lately. You know, we all have those days when our prayer life isn't what we want it to be. Or those weeks, or months (or, to be honest, a whole year). Me too. Now before you freak out because this is your missionary saying this, let me assure you, I'm a real person too. If we could dispel that “missionaries are super-spiritual” myth, that'd be great. Prayer is hard sometimes for missionaries too.
I have a good friend who knows I struggle with prayer sometimes. She does too. And we both encourage each other to ...
