What is your first reaction when the Middle East is mentioned on the news or in conversation? Many of us around the world donÕt know what to think of the great struggles and tragedies going on in this part of the world. In the face of persecution, violence, joblessness, inequality and political instability, the first response of a believer should be prayer.
As we commemorate World Water Day we can all agree that life needs water. But who’s water is it? Explore the dynamics of access, conservation and pollution and then consider that the water we all need might just belong to the Creator of that precious resource.
Research information, no matter how accurate or extensive, can never be the “silver bullet” to complete the mission task, but ignorance is never an advantage. Thank God for these amazingly researched resources, pray for those who continue to refine them, and use them so you know where you should go and what to do when you get there.
Today people are on the move across the globe in unprecedented ways. Do you understand their movements? What is motivating them to leave everything behind? What are the implications for the places they are going? Explore these questions with us.
The Ebola epidemic in West African countries like Liberia is a terrible tragedy that has captured global attention and response. Explore the cycle of Ebola in Liberia and consider how traditional belief and secular medicine are responding. Then pray about the Christian response that is presented and how that might impact your engagement with the crisis.
Much of the time we do not think intentionally about how we make decisions in our ministry efforts. This is even truer cross-culturally. If you are an Indian leader, this Missiographic will hopefully provide some perspective on dynamics of decision making in your country. If you are a non-Indian leader, we hope this Missiographic will help you better understand your Indian partners and serve alongside them more effectively.
If the global Christian witness were represented as lights on a Christmas tree, what would that tree look like? Would it be the tree that Jesus Christ desires when he returns? Take a look at a Christmas tree that depicts the light shining from Christians today and pray for a brighter tree to welcome the King of Kings.
Do you understand the scope of need around higher education globally and the role of Christian higher education? How can you be praying and responding? Dive into the numbers behind the population of people engaged in higher education and consider the implications for your efforts on mission.
As Christmas and the New Year quickly approach, we want to take this time to extend a huge Thank You to all of you. We hope that the information provided through our Missiographics this past year has been a huge blessing to you all.
