The Most Abominable Word

Published by: Sam Crabtree
August 21, 2013

Having just returned from Europe where I connected with 10 of Bethlehem’s global partners, their wives, and their families, I am struck by the words of Mike Latsko, a 22-year pastor who has joined Frontiers, who says, “The term unengaged is the most offensive in missionary terminology. It is a blatant acknowledgement of the missionary community’s refusal to fulfill the minimal apostolic prerequisite of being present among all peoples and beginning the work of gospel proclamation.

No Empty Word

Pastor Todd Rasmuson announces the theme for Global Focus 2013 (October 9–20) at Bethlehem, saying, “God’s global work will succeed. How do we know that missions will be successful when some days for our global partners it seems so hard? Here is what God says about his Word: ‘It shall not return to me empty, but it shall accomplish that which I purpose, and shall succeed in the thing which I sent it’ (Isaiah 55:11).

A few weeks ago we covered the topic of the inward/outward paradigm in global missions. That may have seemed more like "theoretical doctrine" but this topic gripped our class emotionally.

"We Cannot Not Pray"

Published by: Anonymous
May 1, 2013

Throughout the month of May the Lausanne Movement will be leading a prayer initiative for missions advancement around the world. We're six months away from Bethlehem's annual "global focus" but this month of prayer may be an even more effective way to stoke your vision for God's global glory. See the invitation video from Michael Oh, sign up for the daily emails, and most of all...pray.

Hidden in Plain Sight

At the Racial Harmony Round Table recently, Rev. Dr. John Mayer reported that the Hennepin County Medical Center (HCMC) translates medical services into 216 languages. The nations, peoples, tribes, and tongues have come here. We have a global gospel opportunity without even getting on an airplane.

By the way, on a related note, Mayer also reported that the Twin Cities have more Hmong gangs than Hmong churches.

Thoughts from Class: The Inward-Outward Aspect of Missions

Published by: Anonymous

When is the last time you read the Old Testament prophets? Probably not your favorite place to turn at 5:30am for morning devotions. Oh, sure, there are some passages that we love and have heard preached on from time and time (e.g. Isaiah 9; Jeremiah 31; Micah 5). But if I can speak from my experience, these tend to be some of the most difficult books of the Bible to understand and see how they connect to our lives today. Yet, if we're going to understand Christian missions and Jesus' commission of his disciples then these books are indispensible!

Pray for China

Published by: Luke Humphrey

For those using the 7th edition of Operation World as a prayer guide for the nations, today marks the beginning of a two week stretch where thousands using this resource will be interceding on behalf of the country of China. As a church, we have global partners serving in China and in the surrounding countries of East Asia, so we would do well to remember these members of our faith family during these fourteen days.

Audio Bibles and Bible Translation

Published by: Luke Humphrey
March 29, 2013

Have you ever stopped to think about the beauty of having the Bible translated into the English language? We have multiple different translations to reference when studying the Bible. And not only this but we have Bible study software and websites that allow for us to easily search the Scriptures like a Google search! Through the use of technology (such as the printing press and the internet) God has enabled the translation and, thus, the preaching and reading of his Word throughout the world.
