“Moreover [let us also be full of joy now!] let us exult and triumph in our troubles and rejoice in our sufferings, knowing that pressure and affliction and hardship produce patient and unswerving endurance. And endurance (fortitude) develops maturity of character (approved faith and tried integrity). And character [of this sort] produces [the habit of] joyful and confident hope of eternal salvation. Such hope never disappoints or deludes or shames us, for God's love has been poured out in our hearts through the Holy Spirit Who has been given to us.” — Romans 5: 3-5
The plans and purposes of the Lord are never stopped or hinderd, or even delayed by anything in this world. We all anticipate the day where we will be together in DRC, advancing the Kingdom and sharing the Word of God. For now, we remain faithful in doing what we can do to prepare for post-pandemic ministry.
From generation to generation there has always been a remnant that has remained loyal and passionate to continue to grow the Church and pursue the lost. These determined followers loved not their lives unto death and sacrificially went to the regions beyond. This fire of God for the nations must once again be kindled in our hearts.
Today many buildings where the Church gather are empty — and so we also celebrate the empty tomb! He is risen! 🙌🏻🙌🏻🙌🏻
Often times, this means walking over rough terrain where there are few to no roads. It means covering long treks with 4x4 vehicles to camp in the bush. It means learning a foreign language so that you can communicate the Gospel accurately and effectively. It means sitting down for hours with one person to answer their questions and navigate cultural barriers.

Be faithful in the assignment before you, and obedient to the call of God in your life, and then these in-between moments become ministry in itself!

We feel so humbled that God would allow us to continue that work, which was founded by great men and women of God, who gave their lives and were buried there. The team experienced wins all over the world.

It was a wonderful time of drawing together with missionaries from all over the world to hear from different speakers (most … Continue reading a non-comprehensive mid-January update
One of the notions I’ve recently been stewing over is the idea that we best honour God by agreeing with Him about the Truth. If He says it, it’s true.
Jour 1: Le Saint-Esprit est là, tout près de vous Jésus a dit : "Et moi, je prierai le Père, et il vous donnera un autre consolateur, afin qu'il demeure éternellement avec vous, l'Esprit de vérité, que le monde ne peut recevoir, parce qu'il ne le voit point et ne le connaît point ; mais vous, … Continue reading 7 jours pour se laisser guider par le Saint-Esprit
On our first Expedition to Sekute, Vanessa met up with some locals at one of the churches they were ministering at. This is her testimony of Divine Appointments, and how chance-exchanges lead to powerful transformation.
This is Annie. She's practically part of the furniture here on Rapid 14, the logistical base for Overland Missions in Zambia. Not only is she an absolutely PHENOMENAL cook, and super patient in teaching the AMT students how the kitchen is run, she is a powerhouse of faith, and a great source of wisdom.
This is Jackson. Not only is he a close friend, but he's an all-round amazing person. He's on his way to Sioma to minister full-time in Western Zambia.
Looking back often provides us with the perspective we need to recognize God's steadfast faithfulness in every season. God does not change. His Word is ALWAYS true. His is not slow in remembering His promises. When we step out in faith and walk in obedience, He is sure to fulfil His Word since He has already equipped us with everything we need to live a life of holiness and godliness through the Holy Spirit.
