African Time

Published by: Luke Humphrey

It is essential that Christians understand the culture in which they are ministering. This is true whether you are serving in your home country or cross-culturally. In the Nurture Program, we require our participants to complete an exercise where they meet with someone from another culture and learn about their culture and language. The reason for this is that we want to make sure that our global partners are being sensitive to others’ culture so that there is no offense but the offense of the cross (Gal. 5:11).

Global Nomads

Global nomads.

Conjures up visions of yurts and herds of yak milling around, doesn’t it? Life feels pretty nomadic for our Global Partners: setting up home in a friend’s basement for the six weeks of furlough, missing the dog who was left with kind neighbors. Maybe he’ll be alive when you get back. Maybe he’ll have run away. Living out of a suitcases, losing that blankie that got left on the plane from Tokyo.

Celebrating 20 Years

Betsy Lawler celebrated 20 years of serving as one of our global partners in Thailand. I missed the actual party, the speeches of thanks, and the good Thai feast that was enjoyed by all of her colleagues in the region. And yet on a recent visit to Thailand, my wife (Tamara) and I did get to celebrate with Betsy in a spectacular, God-glorifying way. We witnessed some of the beautiful fruit from those 20 years. Betsy, through the support of Bethlehem and many others, has served as one of our global partners with Campus Outreach.

Did you know that currently there are 9 family units from Bethlehem directly engaged bible translation efforts and at least 3 engaged in supporting the work of bible translation around the world. Imagine going into a country as a church planter and there was no local access to the Bible, or at best there is only access in a second language. This video also captures some of the most exciting movement in current bible translation work, local peoples taking ownership of the project themselves.
