Reaching Our Nineveh

When God called his servant Jonah to go to Nineveh and cry against the great city, Jonah fled to Tarshish seeking to escape God’s instruction. Jonah recognized the voice of God, a voice he had surely heard in times past. Whether for fear of his own safety or disregard for…

Exciting Expectations

Have you ever had the feeling something good was coming, even if you couldn't pinpoint what it was or how it may happen? That feeling is hope (Romans 8:24-25). Hope is defined as the joyful expectation of the goodness of God. As we go into 2015, I am already filled…

All Things New

“Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new.” - II Corinthians 5:17 The New Year is always a time of reflection and change.  We all want change and growth in our lives, but much of this change…

BurmaRaising Orphans

From abandoned to chosen.

No one can care for all 1.6 million orphans in Burma, but anyone can make a difference in the life of one child. In November, I had the incredible chance of witnessing one of our children meet her sponsor for the very first time. (more…)

From shy to confident.

Su Su is a 13-year-old girl who lives in the orphanage and has shown tremendous growth. You may recall me sharing some of her story before! When I first met Su Su over two years ago, she was very distant, did not smile, and had very little self-confidence. Just getting…

Unity Is Found In Humility

Unity is not uniformity. Unity is different; it simply means conforming to one purpose without sacrificing individuality. Unity is only possible where humility exists. It can manifest itself in acts of service not just for one another, but with one another. Churches linking arms to serve together for a common…

Seasons

I enjoy the Christmas season and all that comes with it in our American culture. One of my family’s favorite Christmas traditions is to go pick out our Christmas tree on the day after Thanksgiving, then decorate the house, listen to Christmas music, and snack on cookies, candies, hot chocolate…

China Mission School

There is nothing in the world or the Church — except the church's disobedience — to render the evangelization of the world in this generation an impossibility. -Robert Speer, leader in Student Volunteer Movement We live in extraordinary times – right now, the Body of Christ around the world is…

Praying for Our Government

When you pray, you leverage the very power of Heaven. On your knees in prayer you can assist missionaries in the most remote corners of the world. You can dispatch help to prisoners behind bars, invoke peace in troubled neighborhoods, and seed the clouds over arid lands. And because there…

Singing God’s Will

  The Bible mentions music more than 800 times. That is no minor emphasis. God places great importance on how we respond to Him, and music is one of the primary vehicles He has given us to do so.   Psalm 100:2 commands us to “come before His presence with…

Continually Cleansed

Forgiveness is more than God canceling our sins; it also means that He has remitted them–forever blotted them out of His memory. They will never be brought up against you again, because there is nothing to remember. Remind yourself that God keeps no record of your sin, because it has…

An Unlikely Friendship

Miracles can happen when we simply walk in love. The following is a journal entry from our media director, Kevin Bjorklund: In late fall of 2013, I walked into a coffee shop near Erbil, where I was staying with the World Compassion team in Kurdistan, to grab an Americano. (more…)

Still Underground

Although China is developed economically, and even has the influence of western culture, it is not a free land. We cannot forget that the communist party still rules. Many believe that things have changed for the better, that the grip has loosened on Christian churches because their culture is similar…

Culture Shock

As I stood with around 100 church planters in Burma just a few weeks ago, it hit me hard that we were “playing from behind.” These men looked tired with ragged, old clothes on their worn bodies, but there was a hunger that I had not seen. As we visited,…

Hold Onto Hope

Life can be tough, but there’s no shortage of God’s grace and goodness in hard times. You might think the Bible is a book about heroes and holy men, super-spiritual people who never failed and always did the right thing. But the truth is, it features an all too human…

ISIS, an extremely violent and blood-thirsty off-shoot of Al Qaeda overthrew Mosul just a week ago and has continued to take city after city on their march toward Baghdad. Their aim is to create an extreme Islamic…
