Missionaries today can focus their energies on all kinds of needy peoples or special ministries, such as tribal work, urban evangelism, street children, radio work, or Jewish and Muslim evangelism.

I am a pleasure seeker seeking the joy of the Lord. I resonate with George Muller, who said that the first and primary business which he ought to attend to everyday was to have his soul happy in the Lord.
Any reference to incarnation must, of course, take into account the miraculous taking-on of human flesh by the Divine.
The world is rediscovering geography, to the delight of many in international missions.
I was really in the catbird’s seat last summer, cruising through the majestic Canadian Rockies in a tour bus, admiring the scenery and thanking God for it. Suddenly around the bend we confronted a mountain peak named for the first missionary to Alberta, Robert Rundle.
