During our recent trip to Budapest, Hungary, we had the opportunity to visit with 2 missions couple to ask them about what it’s like being missionaries overseas. When it comes to ministry work overseas as Americans, there are so many misconceptions about what life is like. During this episode of the podcast, we ask what it’s like raising a family, being away from family in the States, and what ministry in general is like. PLUS, since we were in Budapest during the European Refugee Crisis, we had the opportunity to minister alongside Hungarian Nationals to families, handing out food and blankets, and be part of ministering to families fleeing a war-torn nation in search of peace for their families.
We hope that you will listen to and enjoy this preview of next week’s episode. We recently took a trip to visit overseas missionaries in Budapest, Hungary, while getting a sliver of a firsthand look at the current refugee crisis.
For new life and growth to happen, literally seeds have to separate from the plant and die. And in that dying of self is where God allows supernatural life to happen — but that only occurs in the right season and at the right time and right conditions. Outside of those circumstances when the seed is brought before it’s time, it will not thrive. It only succeeds when allowed to in the conditions God ordained, not what we force otherwise. What opportunities is God showing you?
If you love the Lord and have claimed Jesus Christ as your savior, you are called. Listen to this short encouragement from Jen on what it means to to follow where God is calling you in life. So many Christians think “the calling” is this big thing where we hear the voice of the Lord telling us to be an evangelist, or a pastor, or a missionary. The truth is the call is for ALL who believe in Jesus.
Is going to church necessary? Does being a “good person” mean we are “good enough” as believers? Does God care about the “small” things in life? Only pastors can be in charge and lead others, right? God wants me to be happy, doesn’t He? What are your thoughts?
In this episode for PROJECT: Faith Journey, we took a few minutes to sit down with author, entrepreneur & speaker, Jonathan Malm. We asked, “Are you allowing God to make in you something creative and good?” and “What is the church doing to make visitor feel ‘unwelcome’ — and how are you doing the same in your own life?”
This cheer squad is a team made of both special needs individuals and their non-disabled peers coming together in one team to cheer as one in their community. Inclusion and acceptance is lived out amongst these young girls, which should only further and help them as they help shape the way society treats everyone, disabilities or not, as equals.
The difference they are making in their community is inspiring.
How often do we go on a spiritual journey and blaze forward with our own agenda, hitting others and leave casualties on the side on the road, with little care to what happens to others along the way? — Be careful. You might be part of the reason that someone goes to Hell.
