An Invitation to Join the Giving Tuesday Movement

Giving TuesdayBlack Friday. Small Business Saturday. Cyber Monday. What’s next?  Fire-sale Sunday? It seems like every year there’s a new “specially designated” day to promote Christmas spending.

I want to say something about the growing “Giving Tuesday” movement (yes, yet another new day, but this one with a higher purpose). It’s the philanthropic community’s response to the consumerism of Black Friday and Cyber Monday and is designed to provide people with a charitable day to consider giving as they go into the holiday season.

Sharing the Message of Eternity

Sharing Randy's Eternity graphic novelAs I shared in a blog last week, I have a missional perspective on my graphic novel EternityGod has laid on my heart a vision for seeding the book far and wide because it includes a clear gospel presentation.

I would appreciate your prayers as this book is distributed. Our ministry is giving away thousands of copies from the first printing to prisoners, Christian camps, youth ministries, and various missions organizations, including Operation Mobilization’s Logos Hope ship which will bring it into ports in many countries.

My Eternity Graphic Novel and the Unreached People Group in Our Midst

Eternity graphic novelI really have a missional perspective on this book. In a way, though it’s in English, because of its visual nature it’s like a translation into another language, a language that some people speak and some don’t. I’ve been realizing more and more that there are not only young people but many adults, especially men—and increasing numbers of YOUNG men—who just aren’t good readers. Many young people are becoming like an unreached people group that needs to hear the gospel in a form that is familiar and compelling enough to reach them.

Peace Child Revisited, 50 Years After First Contact

Peace ChildMany years ago I read Peace Child by Don Richardson. This great missions story had a strong impact on my life, demonstrating the power of the gospel in a primitive culture.

Logos Hope: A Great International Opportunity for Short-term Service

Logos Hope

My friend George Verwer, founder of Operation Mobilization (OM), recently shared about his visit to Logos Hope, a ship owned and operated by OM Ships. Logos Hope travels to ports around the world, acting as a floating bookshop.

The Least of These: Those without Clean Water and Sanitation

Girl drinkingIn today’s blog we ask the question again: how can we as Christians help the most vulnerable people in the world? (See my previous blogs in the series we’re calling The Least of These.) This post focuses on those who lack access to clean drinking water and basic sanitation.

 

A Child’s Life-Saving Heart Surgery

ChangpiOne of the ministries EPM supports is Action International. Devendra and Koko Rai work with Action in India, and in November, Devendra sent out a prayer request for the daughter of an Indian pastor.  Changpi (who turned 7 on December 8) was diagnosed with a hole in her heart that created complications in her liver.

 

Negativism and Doctrinal Drift among Some in World Missions

Out of the Comfort ZoneGeorge Verwer, a man I dearly love and respect, and one of the great global missions leaders in church history as well as a champion for the unborn, has rewritten and updated a chapter from his book Out of the Comfort Zone. Here’s a portion from that chapter. Listen to our brother George, who has earned like few others the right to be heard in world missions. 

The Least of These: Street Children

ChildrenToday we’re launching a new blog series (every few weeks we’ll share a post) that addresses social justice issues that affect the most vulnerable people in the world today. Each blog will focus on a specific, often overlooked, people group in need both physically and spiritually.

George Verwer: Prolife Hero

George VerwerI have the greatest appreciation for George Verwer, founder of Operation Mobilization (OM) and an advocate for worldwide missions. Some years ago George contacted me, saying God had laid on his heart the plight of unborn children. I was grateful to hear this, but wasn’t sure whether this vision would last given the fact that many people, Christians included, object to hearing about it. Well, George is a man who listens to God rather than voices that don’t tolerate speakers who address abortion.
