God is transforming lives in mission and we would like to share these stories of transformation with you. Read about God's work in the stories from our missionaries and short term mission teams.
Love Like That
“I have a deeper passion to see others saved, and I’ve never had that passion before.”
Eager to Learn
A writer. Two engineers. A man who likes to gamble in Las Vegas. Another who enjoys touring on his motorcycle. A volunteer Japanese teacher. A young Korean woman. What do all these people have in common?
It was a wonderful time of celebration! The choir sang beautiful songs of worship and even the children were involved through the presentation of songs and recitals. The crowd was inspired by a message that challenged them to unreservedly serve the Lord, and was encouraged as they heard the testimonies of several students.
Asking in Faith
The Brazil TREK team, who spent 7 months serving in Sao Paulo, ventured to the south of Brazil for the month of January to take part in a mission trip with 70 other Brazilian youth. During that month they lived and breathed the Portuguese language. Often completely unaware of what was being said around them, this dedicated TREK team put forth their best efforts to fully engage in relationship and make the most of the time on their ministry trip to the south.
Living in the Ukraine, MB Mission church planters John & Evelyn Wiens find that God gives them opportunities to share their faith in every day life. As they build relationships with people that God places in their paths, they are able to tell them about the hope that is found in Jesus Christ.
Aunt Kham hadn’t visited her family in Isaan, the northeast region of Thailand, for many years. She didn’t even know how many of her relatives were still alive. Uncle Man hadn’t been back to his home village in over 40 years! Naat had visited only once over a period of many years, and had experienced lots of problems in her relationships with her father and her siblings.
We had been waiting and waiting for the closing ceremony to begin and I was getting impatient! Why didn’t we just go ahead and start? It seemed obvious they were not going to come! I should be used to waiting, as my family and I had lived in India several years ago and I knew that culturally things moved at a much slower pace. Meetings usually do not begin when we expect them to!
Hearing the Shepherd
“We are hearing God’s voice. Jesus is speaking to us!” the family excitedly told the ACTION team.
Growth amidst Persecution
It is incredibly difficult to be a Christian in North Africa. Believers face terrible persecution if it is discovered that they have chosen to follow Jesus. There are often violent consequences and Christians experience rejection from their families.
