FLIGHT FOR A CAUSE

Aviation Strengthens Ministry Efforts in Zambia BY CHRIS BRUNDAGE For the past five years, I have been involved in mission aviation at Chitokoloki is a Mission Hospital. Chitokoloki is a busy, rural hospital with 110 beds and a team of missionaries, including a doctor, nurses, administrative support, and maintenance workers, from Canada, the United States, and the United Kingdom. Chitokoloki is situated more than 350 miles from Lusaka, Zambia’s capital city. Taken from CMML Missions Magazine

FELLOWSHIP

What is fellowship? Is it merely sharing a meal together? Is it praying together? Is it both? Is going over to a shut-in’s house or showing hospitality?  Words matter There are two Hebrew words translated as fellowship in the KJV, one noun and one verb. In the Greek there are both feminine and masculine nouns and a verb.  Secular dictionary definitions are, frankly, nebulous and unclear. You could say a club, union league, alliance, confederacy or guild is a fellowship. I can leave any one of those and it’s no big deal. I was in a game club when I [...]

A TIME OF RENEWAL

Years ago, in an effort to encourage workers who labor for the Lord in tension-filled regions throughout Asia, the assembly missionary service organizations agreed to treat them to a retreat. The first such retreat was held in Hong Kong, and Sheldon and Nisa Crutchfield (MPH Day 7) were the key organizers. With this, they began what has become an event that is convened every four or five years. Taken from CMML Missions Magazine

A THRILL OF HOPE

If I asked you right now to picture a peaceful scene in your mind’s eye, what would you see? A mother snuggling a sleeping infant?The muffled hush of freshly fallen snow?Something else entirely? Christmas…the celebration of the birth Jesus Christ, the prince of peace. I wonder how peaceful that birth night was? My realistic mind tends to doubt that it was quite as peaceful as the carols Silent Night or Oh Little Town of Bethlehem might portray. There is rather little that is peaceful in the process of birthing a baby. Maybe the “heavenly peace” came after? Regardless, the birth of our glorious Prince [...]

IAN & HEATHER WALTON

Serving in Belize Heather’s TestimonyI grew up as a missionary kid in both Kenya and Burundi. I, too, was brought up in a Christian home, and I realized that I needed to be saved at age three. Ian’s TestimonyI was blessed to grow up in a Christian home where going to church was twice, or sometimes three times, on Sundays and every Thursday evening for Bible study.

DISCIPLE MAKERS

Are you a disciple maker? Now don’t misunderstand my question. I did not ask, are you an evangelist?  The Lord Jesus in His last requests to His disciples gives a very simple command. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age. Matthew 28:19-20. What does it take to make a disciple? Well it takes a team. It takes some to plant the seed, some to water [...]

PETER & MELANIE MEAD

Melanie’s testimony: I was blessed to be raised in a US-based missionary family and was privileged to hear the Gospel from a young age. Although I trusted Christ as my Savior when I was about five years old, it wasn’t until my teens that my faith became some- thing that was personal and real to me. Peter’s testimony: My parents were assembly missionaries from the United Kingdom to Italy. I grew up in Italy and England and was saved at an early age.   Taken from CMML Missions Magazine

ARE WE LISTENING TO THE NEXT GENERATIONS?

It’s pretty clear to most people that the two youngest generations in the church speak a much different language than us “older” ones. It’s a language that may be hard to interpret if we are not intentionally listening. I’m referring to those between 18 and 40. If we are going to communicate the Word of God to these generations we must first understand how they think and speak so that we can share the truth of God in a way they will understand.  There’s no point speaking English to a person who only understands French. What is said may be [...]

ELDERS: ACTIVE OR PASSIVE?

Not long ago, a man said something like this: I enjoyed the ministry today, but one thing you said really caught my attention. It was the statement that there is an active as well as a passive side to the work of elders. I need to do some serious thinking about that, because … through most of my years I have been a passive elder. I remember wondering how many other elders might feel the same way. Some will wonder that an article on such a subject could be needed at all. Isn’t it obvious that both active (action) and [...]
