When walking through a jungle, it is easy to get disorientated and lose your sense of direction. I know first hand that when you get into a helicopter and get a perspective from further away, everything becomes much more clear.
50 years ago, when Ethnos Canada needed a space for hosting mission conferences, local believers went to the bush, cut down trees, and brought the trunks to our campus. A simple pole structure was built, trusses were added and it was closed in with metal siding. Voila—a conference centre and gymnasium.
The fact that you read the Ethnos360 magazine shows that you have a heart for reaching the unreached. Thank you! It takes all of us to engage in reaching unreached people groups for Christ. Truly the days are quickly approaching when Christ will come back for His Bride, the Church.
The spiritual battle is fierce! Satan will send his forces in to oppose, discourage and distract us. But God is faithful to empower us to withstand, whether we are serving Him in a foreign land, or serving Him in our homeland.
All of us know people who have endured incredibly difficult seasons. And we look back and see with remarkable clarity the hand of God allowing some things and orchestrating other things, so that He gets the glory.
It’s a testimony to the grace, power and love of God that people associated with Ethnos Canada in East Africa are working closely with African churches to cross even more cultural and language barriers with God’s saving message.
It took an incredible and diverse team from around the globe to enable my family to move into the Moi tribe of the Asia-Pacific Region.
Weak as we are, God has chosen to use us to spread His fame. Absolutely amazing!
What is amazing is that as the body of Christ—the Church—we have been tasked with taking this message of hope to the nations/ethnos... God wants to use ordinary people like you and me to do extraordinary work.
