I have to admit that, for 18 years, I have been using this little editorial corner to point out the myriad ways in which our missionaries are unique, amazing, exceptional, unconventional people. Now I fear I may have had it wrong all this time. They are not unconventional for going. We are unconventional for staying.
What if they were filled with the power of the Holy Spirit and outfitted with every provision of heaven’s storehouse? Could they have any doubt of success?
In the midst of their heartache, our missionaries’ commitment to reaching the unreached burns even brighter, because they hold even more tenaciously to God’s promises.
If you are a giver, multiply that blessing by giving to the AFM Student Missions Fund.
I invite you to choose to experience culture shock today, letting your old identity fall away as you embrace heaven’s culture and live as a child of the kingdom.
Someday in eternity when you are reviewing the records of your life history on earth, I predict that you will be utterly astounded at the massive salvos of divine power your heartfelt prayers unleashed.
In a thousand ways, you have inspired us by your dedication and sacrifice, and we are deeply grateful.
We can see glimpses of divine symmetry in the changes of fall.
How do you feel about the future? Are you holding onto today or striving for tomorrow? The future is unfolding according to a divine equation, and you are the variable.
There is something about getting involved in the work of salvation that brings us closer to the heart of God in a way nothing else can.
