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.
Leaning on the Solid Rock
During her 7 month service in central Thailand with Team 2000, TREKer Rachel formed a special friendship with a girl named Gaam. Though Gaam had been attending church for 2 years, she was not a Christian.
Life and Revival
God has been laying on my heart prayers for revival, for renewal, and for restoration. These have all been themes in my prayer life over the past few years, but this time the word “revival” has been particularly strong.
Hearts of Compassion
Ernastes listened attentively as the gospel story was shared with the children around the campfire. He snuggled up to ACTION participant Janelle Hume, constantly smiling up at her, hungry for affirmation.
A house has been built on a mountain near a village in Asia. It was built by the people in the village for their god – a demoness of protection. All around the house there are spears and other weapons for the demoness to use to protect the village. But there is also a fence that surrounds the house. This fence was built by the villagers to protect the demoness that is supposed to protect them.
The Father's Heart
“Your Daddy loves you!” Lisa whispered these words over and over again to the 3-month old baby girl that she held in her arms. She was overwhelmed with the Father’s love for this child who had been abandoned by her parents, and felt privileged to be able to pass on God’s message to His little girl.
Can I Go?
“I have understood God’s message, and I have to serve God and bring this same message to others. Brother Einer, can I go with you to preach the Gospel?”
The Power of God
People all over the world are being drawn to God as they see and experience His power in their lives. Daniel* first encountered Christ in a prison in Burkina Faso. While he was in prison, Protestant pastors, Catholic priests, and Muslim religious leaders came to help the prisoners and to tell them about their different religions. Daniel chose to worship with the Protestants, and attended prayer meetings on Fridays and church services on Sundays.
Living by Faith
Carlos Arrue Chaves believed that he was a good person. He provided for his family, he attended church regularly, and he was an honest man. But when a car accident took the life of his son, Carlos learned that dependency on Jesus – through the good times and the bad – is the only way to live.
Clash of Kingdoms
There is an urgent need for Christians around the world to intercede in prayer on behalf of the spiritually bound. Such are the people of Asia. So deeply rooted in age-old Buddhist rituals, though some have been set free by the truth, they are still under fierce attack from the enemy.
