GMI: Is Turkey, the Gateway to Asia, Opening or Closing?

GMI: Is Turkey, the Gateway to Asia, Opening or Closing? | Daily Connexions | Scoop.it

Over the centuries Turkey has vacillated between an open door and closed society when it comes to the Church. What do you know about Turkey? Will you take a few minutes to gain some deeper understanding of this complex society that is filled with so many opportunities and yet is currently very closed to the Gospel? But while you recognize the challenges, remember the cracks in the gateway that are providing new and exciting opportunities for Turkey’s people to hear the Good News. >> CLICK the title to read the entire post and open the infographic.

Africa Leadership Study

Africa Leadership Study | Daily Connexions | Scoop.it

There are many organizations, schools and individuals in Africa with a burden and passion for developing and empowering effective leaders across all aspects of African culture. The Africa Leadership Study asked over 8,000 African Christians to identify those individual lay leaders, pastors and organizations demonstrating a high level of positive impact. They were also asked to identify key components of mature, impactful leadership. The survey responses and the qualities and formation experiences of those identified can serve to guide us. This data can inform curriculum development, training materials, mentoring practices, networking and gaps so as to develop best practices. We can also identify those who have been most effective and can be empowered to do more through further support. >> CLICK the title to learn more!

Videos 4 U – Unreached Peoples, Least Reached Places

Videos 4 U – Unreached Peoples, Least Reached Places | Daily Connexions | Scoop.it

The North Carolina Baptist Convention is one of a handful of SBC groups (hopefully this number will grow) working hard to educate and mobilize others to reach unengaged and unreached peoples in North America.
    A few months ago I was contacted by some brothers from North Carolina about setting portions of my ebook, Unreached Peoples, Least Reached Places: An Untold Story of Lostness in America, to audio and video. I was honored they would consider using my work.
    The book was published on the blog in 2014. If you do not have a copy, download it today–and share with others.
    Three videos were released last week. Please take a moment to watch and share. You will be challenged and motivated to reach the peoples among us.

What Keeps You from Going? (Three Myths About World Missions)

What Keeps You from Going? (Three Myths About World Missions) | Daily Connexions | Scoop.it

"... you may be far more qualified than you think both in terms of spiritual fitness (or lack thereof) and vocational usefulness for the very specific task of missions. Whether you are still in school and pursuing a “secular” degree or have completed your formal education and are working in the “marketplace,” ... your vocation may not only not be an obstacle to missions but may very well be the unique key to unlock the door to a particular “closed” country unreached by the gospel.

Franklin Graham: We Saw God Do a Mighty Work

Franklin Graham: We Saw God Do a Mighty Work | Daily Connexions | Scoop.it

Dear Friend,

“See, I have set before you an open door, and no one can shut it.” Those words of Jesus to a church in Asia 2,000 years ago (Revelation 3:8, NKJV) are a vivid description of what He has just done for churches in a different part of Asia in our day.

During the week before Thanksgiving, we saw God do a mighty work in the nation of Myanmar when more than 170,000 people overflowed a three-day Crusade in Yangon, that country’s largest city, to hear the Gospel. It was a historic moment for churches there—Myanmar is a country where Christians have long endured persecution and where evangelism has been severely limited for decades by military governments. But when God opens the door, no opposition can shut it. >> CLICK the title to read Franklin's entire post.

Missions and Dating: The Intersection of Disparate Longings

Missions and Dating: The Intersection of Disparate Longings | Daily Connexions | Scoop.it

"Do dating and missions go together? No. And yes.
    No, because the odds are against them. Wisdom is against them. How can the two endeavors coexist when both are so utterly demanding of affection, energy, and presence? Although this verse is about money, the general overtone of Matthew 6:24 comes to mind, “No one can be a slave of two masters, since either he will hate one and love the other, or be devoted to one and despise the other” (HCSB). Arguably, few people can balance both well. Why sign up for failure and misery? No, dating and missions just don’t mix.
    But then again, yes they do. Despite odds and wisdom, dating and missions will inevitably elope together. Human hearts refuse to be shaped according to law. In fact, it stirs them to rebel against it. In an ideal world, perhaps we could have only one source that grasps at our deepest affections, or be given the capacity to perfectly balance many objects of affection at a time. But that’s heaven. And we’re on this side. Significant relationships are going to spring up. They won’t always arrive conveniently. So yes, dating and missions do go together." >> CLICK the title to to read the entire post.
