(Excerpts of a letter written to some missionaries in training.)

Members of any missionary team should be prayerfully chosen for their proven, self-sacrificial love for the lost; their close spiritual link with the Lord; and their tested ability to be led by Him in major decisions in the absence of earthly counselors or supervisors. They should also demonstrate a loving concern for their coworkers and those to whom they minister, and be able to get along with them. And of . . .  read more

Become One

If the Lord has called you to a foreign field of service, it is important to learn the language of the land. You can’t very well tell people that you love them if you haven’t made the slightest attempt to learn their language, customs, culture, history, religion, characteristics, nationality traits, etc., which are all a part of them. You can hardly hope to understand them fully . . .  read more

He was an artist at public speaking. Whenever he gave a speech or lecture, sometimes standing in the dark on the platform, pointing to pictures of his travels or this or that, which I was showing on a slide projector, he never used a note.

So I asked him one time, “Grandfather, how are you . . .  read more

The conversation with our attractive young travel agent turned into a personal witness after she told us how sick she was, and how she was taking a certain medicine to try to cure what was ailing her.

I told her that I didn’t have much confidence in medicine, but rather had more faith to stay well by keeping God’s rules of good health: proper diet, rest, exercise, and right living. . . .  read more

There once was a young man who got saved. He was a logger, and he worked in a remote area. The men he worked with were notoriously tough, strong, hard men, so the man who led him to Christ warned him, “When you go back to the logging camp, it’s going to be very difficult for you when they find out you’re a Christian, because most of those men don’t like  . . .  read more
