Update: A Grace-Filled Pause Before we GO

  • Published in Blog

 

 

Last month we let you all know that we had plans of leaving in October. This month we're letting you know that we'll be postponing our departure until after the first of the year. If you are as ready as we were to see us go to the mission field, then you must be wondering what happened.

Our Time at CIT

So, 3 missionaries move to India to do mission work. One is from Germany, another from the USA, and another from South Korea. How do you make them all get along while working with nationals, be a successful missionary team, glorifying God and seeing churches established? Just call us in to supervise. OK, well, maybe not.  Our missionary training at CIT was great but we don't now think we can solve all the cultural problems of the world. Actually, we feel the opposite of that: we, in ourselves, aren't adequate for the job.

Difficulties and Joys: Part 2

  • Published in Blog

A lot of things boil down to perspective.  You can put two different people through the same situation and both of them come out seeing it differently.  In the last post I wrote about the struggles or negative aspects of the missionary appointee process we are in.  It has indeed been long and hard on us but we aren't discouraged about it because we can see some of what God is doing in us through it all.  I could turn most of the points around (and I'll do that with some) and show how they have been positive.  God is always at work even in the longest of processes.  

James 1:4 But let patience have its perfect work, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking nothing.

Difficulties and Joys: Part 1

  • Published in Blog

 

2 years is quite a bit of time to prepare for something.  That's how long we've been with SIM as missionary appointees.  That's a long time.  We've seen several who started with us and have already been on the field for many months now.  Discouragement crouches at the door continually.  And really, I can say that the desire to be a missionary in Latin America has been warming inside of me for closer to 6 years or so.  During these last 2 years we've had a lot of ups and downs.  One thing is for sure and that's that God has been teaching us and molding us.  We are still pushing toward the calling we feel like God has given us.  Being in southern Ecuador with the 1% of the population who are evangelical is still our goal.  In these next two blog posts I want to share some of those feelings and experiences I've had, both negative and positive.  I'll start with the negative and end on the positive ones in the next post.  They aren't listed in any particular order.
