Go Now Missions: Last minute choice and provision

In late March during one of our weekly BSM Bible studies, an Alaskan missionary named Brenda Crim began speaking about her ministry and the Alaskan culture that she is trying to reach.

Go Now Missions: Contentedness in Christ despite earthly pain

The people of Nueva Candalaria live on $6 per day and have received no aid prior to the arrival of Living Water. The constant hard work of the pastor and the obvious effects of poverty on the children made it easy for me to view the people purely as victims.Continued interaction with the villagers showed me glimpses of pride, obses...

Go Now Missions: Breaking the chains of darkness

Earlier this month, I was sobbing because I was so overwhelmed by the deep chains of darkness here in South Asia.

Go Now Missions: What am I doing with my life?

This is a question that I often use in jest, but that I also often ask myself and ask God.

Hard knock life

The only men inside the orfanitorio are the security guards. 80-or-so children play within the fenced courtyard; they are shielded from outside dangers and void of inside comforts.

Breaking the chains of darkness, revisited
