14 May 2014
I’m convinced that missions is simply doing what we should all be doing anyway—in another country.
Are You Qualified to be an Overseas Worker?
I’ve heard that the number one reason Christian workers leave the mission field is not lack of financial support or illness or burnout—it’s other missionaries.
Missionaries Drive Me Crazy

It's good to know your spiritual gifts. But if you stop at knowing your spiritual gifts, you have an incomplete picture of how God has equipped you to be a leader.

What Is Your Spiritual Gift?
We were exhausted and on the verge of burnout, so I booked a really cheap last-minute cruise online.
When Missionaries Take First-Class Cruises
As I entered particular Syrian refugee family’s home, I saw a huge pile of moldy bread filling a tiny room. The family gathered old bread from the trash heaps and resold it as animal feed. 
Disciple Making Movements and the Syrian Refugees
It was 6:00 am and I was wide-awake. All signs were pointing to this quickly becoming a challenging day.
Deny Yourself: A Lesson From the Book of Luke
Esteban grew up in a rough part of town. As a teenager, he went the way most kids from his neighborhood went—and it was not pretty.
Who Says You Can’t Do This?
We need a word that challenges new workers to go where there are no Starbucks, no IKEA’s, and no missionaries. That word is unengaged.
The Unengaged: The Final Frontiers
Unlike traditional teams which begin with individuals that want to go, a CBT typically begins with a church that wants to send.
Church-Based Team: Assembly Required
The first time I stood in front of twenty teenage boys in the Arab Gulf to teach an English class, I was terrified.
The First Day of Class
The auto-rickshaw driver said, "Tell me a story about Jesus."
A Moment's Notice

Khadija was a desperately poor woman. And desperation had earned her a steeled persistence. 

A Lesson on Persistence
Finding a modern-day Paul can result in more churches being planted in Muslim communities than if we were to just try and do it all ourselves.
Finding Ananias
Northern Iraqis have witnessed unspeakable human sorrow these past weeks. Thousands of survivors have nowhere to go.
Better Than Life Itself
The way of Jesus Christ is the way of love, not hate. And each of us has a role to play in God's plan to reach the lost.
Love Your Enemies

"The people who were far away from me were never far from the heart of God."

Far-off but near the heart of God

“Just bury it in the dirt,“ said a local woman when we asked what to do with a huge, broken piece of glass.

My Life Overseas: Just Bury It In The Dirt

I wonder if people in America know how much I miss the doorbell ringing twenty times a day, now that I’ve moved back from India.

My Life Overseas: It's Extremely Relational

If I close my eyes, I can still hear the familiar sound of our bird-tweeting doorbell and a call to our balcony, “Mrs. Jeannie, a package from America is there!”

My Life Overseas: Care Packages are Lifesavers

At the heart of leadership is influence and the power that enables the leader to influence others.

Danger—Power at Work

My host family completely baffled by my life: a single woman, living outside her father’s household, going to work every day.

The Foreigner

Why doesn’t God “beam us up” as soon as we believe? Maybe it's so that we can make a difference together here.

Blood, Sweat, and Tears

I did not go to the semi-nomadic Arabs of the Sahara because I loved them. So, why did I go, and what kept me there for almost six years?

An Impossible Vision
Ryan and Bethany left the comforts of suburban America to serve on a Church-Based Team (CBT) in an impoverished, harsh Muslim land.

Adventures in a Simple Life

As we celebrate Christmas with family, our workers on the field are living in places where they might be the only ones worshiping Jesus Christ.

Solar-powered Gospel
“God calls us to reach the lost,” Rashad declared passionately, “so that’s what I must do.”
The Hope In Hostility

God doesn’t call every one of His followers to physically transplant themselves in a different country to reach the lost. But He does call every one of us to be about the unreached.

Jesus, Refuge for Syrian Refugees

Refugees keep asking: What is the purpose of this evil? Is it merely for one evil nation to terrorize another? Who can bring an end to the death and destruction?

Their questions are opening doors for the Gospel.

Syria: 4 Years of Conflict

My current 'line of work' does not bring with it super-human status. As the saying goes, I am simply a humble beggar attempting to show other beggars where to find bread. 

He Makes Me Brave
