Missions Monday is designed to expose you to some awesome missions and evangelism stories, resources, and information in the shameless hope that you will be moved to get more involved in supporting and participating in missions and develop a greater burden for sharing the gospel with those around you.

Amy+Buying+in+DukaWhat Missionaries Aren’t Telling You (And What They Need from You) Part 2– We wanted to be in Tanzania. We were not going to give up that easily. We had a good deal of grit, and a lot of God’s grace, and we were in this for a long haul. But we were terrified to be honest about how hard it was. We were terrified of letting people down, especially our donors.

question-guy-4001_kindlephoto-23502935What is a Christian Missionary?– A Christian missionary is commissioned by the Lord to make disciples, followers of Christ. Jesus commands all Christians to share the Gospel, the message of His death and resurrection that conquered the penalty and power of sin.

muslimwoman-2What Does a Muslim Woman Think of You?– To minister to people of different cultures and religions, we are called to see them as they see themselves, not as we see them. We need to be students of them, their culture and religion. We need to understand their desires, aspirations and dreams.

friends-gospelWhat to Expect When We Preach the Gospel– This is what we should expect when we represent Christ, no matter how well we represent him. Some will be drawn closer, but others—many others, perhaps—will be repelled. That’s what we should expect, because it is what we’re told will happen.

twr_logoBosnian Radio Program– Bosnia is one of the least-reached countries in Europe today. The conflicts of the 1990s have resulted in hard lines of division among Bosnia’s ethnic and religious groups. Bible-believing Christians are few and often isolated. Yet TWR’s Bosnian programs speak to the hearts of listeners in this nation.

developing-written-tribal-languageDeveloping a Written Tribal Language– The people that we work with had no official written language before we started. We were the first outsiders to learn their language, and after we became fluent, we (my language partner and I) did phonemic, phonetic, grammar, and discourse write-ups on the language.
