SOS & SOP

Save our Souls with Shouts of Praise! Thomas Jefferson knew that no man, no political party, no media pundit, and no tech giant could bring the healing and blessing that King Jesus affords to a nation! Taking cue from our update two weeks ago, we choose this week to rejoice in the goodness of God. His faithfulness never ends. His mercies renew every morning! Rejoice with us! Pray the Lord oversees the ordering of our tasks and events as we return to Cote d’Ivoire.

The Quest for Truth

Star Witnesses

Heavenly lights and wise men are interwoven in Scripture. Just as the star led the magi of old to Jesus’ location, this coming week will grant us the opportunity to observe another celestial witness. On Monday evening, December 21, around dusk, look to the southwest horizon . . .

Nigerian hostage rescue

The Rescue

Back in early November, we listened with interest to the report about Seal Team 6’s rescue of an American in northern Nigeria. The parallel to the Christmas season seems evident to us: our King left His throne and splendor to rescue humanity’s unworthy, sinful souls. It is a great joy for us to assist our Lord to multiply the ministries that use Community Health Evangelism (CHE) strategies, which affirm the value of every human life.

Travel Tips to Trust

It is interesting to observe how fears decrease with a fuller understanding of the COVID-19 disease. Frequently when we share with others, confidence grows that God develops a shared understanding to overcome the pandemic . . . . stressing out about things we cannot individually control only WEAKENS our human immune systems over time.

Appearances

Appearances are not always as they seem. That reality resonated with Debbie this week. For a few days, she helped her parents, Eddie and Sandra Payne, sort through belongings. Within the year, they hope to move to a one-level dwelling more suited to their octogenarian health and lifestyle. She enjoyed the side benefit of new tales from their missionary career. The following is a story she heard that we reflect upon as our nation reels from sectarian-propagated violence.

Feasting CRISIS

We sense peace and stability when food in the house suffices to feed the family. Birds sense the same, too! Similarly, pandemic experiences drive home to Ivorians that churches using Community Health Evangelism (CHE) and Discovery Bible Studies (DBS) disseminate truth in culture more effectively. The peace and stability of Shalom reign in real life.

Leadership LEAP

Recent lifestyle adjustments due to COVID-19 remind us of two things: change is a constant, and, never let a crisis go to waste without thinking of how to improve the future. Such thinking may seem audacious to some, but . . . Audacity is a leadership quality summarized in the LEAP acronym (i.e. love, edge, audacity, and proofs).

Prioritize, Listen to Him

Listen to Him

Many voices – political, familial, medical, spiritual, social – vie for our attention and affection daily. While the input of the wise is essential, it cannot gain preeminence over THE Voice to whom we must desperately listen. As some grow, and others die in the cycle of life to which we’ve been given, let us rededicate ourselves to get beyond the elementary things of faith and do what we’ve been called to do.

Brain Changer

It amuses and instructs us when medical science “catches up” with the everlasting truths that our Lord already revealed through His Word. In recent years, much has been written about neuroplasticity in the brain. Gratitude and positive thinking grow neuron networks in the left prefrontal cortex, the part of the brain that helps us seek solutions to problems. As we travel along seeding the hope that comes with the Gospel through Community Health Evangelism, we are learning the power of thanksgiving. Learn it with us to hold onto what is good, grow some neurons, and solve some problems. We bid all who read a daily, Happy Thanksgiving!
