Connecting the Dots

By Steve McCracken

Steve McCracken Kenya 1Sometimes I’m slow to notice God at work.  On more than a few occasions I have prayed for things yet lacked an alertness to notice God’s answer.  But, there have been times where I heard of a need, prayed about it, and before I knew it, I became part of the solution.  My trip to Eldoret, Kenya last month was a recent example.

Butterfly at a Chinese Altar

With McKenzie Starrett

A Matter of Perspective

By Bill MacLeod

Last night, I taught my first “Perspectives on the World Christian Movement” class of the year.

bill-macleod-mission-connexion-2013As I drove to the class, I thought of the first time that I took the 15-week Perspectives course, twenty years ago. At that time, I was a newly-appointed missions pastor. I had studied and earned undergrad and grad degrees from solid, nationally-recognized Biblical institutions. But, what I encountered in those 15 weeks in the Perspectives course surpassed anything I had experienced before.
