Eric's testimony

On Sunday evening I sat with a despondent man from our church until 11 PM.
Last night I had multiple phone calls late at night dealing with a run-away teenager and her parents.
Drama and sorrow in multiple families.
Then there is the question of dealing with cultural challenges and language inadequacies.

Don't stop - Part 1

The bible is constantly reminding us of things that we are to quit - quit sinning, quit worrying. And then there are things and deeds that we are to continually practice.  For a missionary there are possibly a number of less than intuitive things that we should continually practice. Over the next few blog posts, I want to expound on a few of my "don't stop" list. Certainly this list is not exhaustive, but it is a start.

The tendency will be to address the matters that are at hand, the pressing or urgent duties. These are the priorities that will not scream for attention and can therefore be ignored or relegated to the later list, never getting the attention that will be required. At the same time, these are items that will make a huge difference in long-term ministry impact. 

Missionary impact

No man is an island unto himself, but a compilation of those that have influenced his and his thinking. Whether it be his peer group, family and upbringing, colleagues, training or reading, a person is heavily influenced and inspired.

This is a small collection of those lives and biographies that have heavily influenced my missionary thinking.
