Fr. Mike reminds us that God uses crooked lines to make a straight story, like Paul's witness to Priscilla and Aquila as they encounter the person of Christ and become missionaries. Just like Apollos accepted correction, Fr. Mike invites us to courageously open ourselves up to learning and growing. Today's readings are Acts 18, 1 Corinthians 16, and Proverbs 28:19-21. For the complete reading plan, visit ascensionpress.com/bibleinayear. Please note: The Bible contains adult themes that may not be suitable for children - parental discretion is advised.
What is the work missionaries do? We are going through the 6 parts of the missionary task, and in this episode we dive into the first part - entering new fields. The goal of entry is to provide meaningful gospel access to the target population. Entry strategies should be simple and reproducible so that as many local believers as possible will use them to share the gospel. Listen in!
We are a Spirit-filled Church and we are committed to a lifestyle of sacrificial love that brings genuine heart transformation to the generations in our midst. We are passionate about reaching the Lowcountry with the gospel of Jesus.
Thanks for joining The Conversation! We are thrilled to have long-time missionaries and friends of CCC, Allan and Georgene Shalm joining us on the Podcast today! The Shalms are veteran missionaries, having spent more than four decades on the mission field in various parts of Asia, namely Pakistan and Malaysia. In this current season, they base out of Ontario, Canada, and still travel extensively to bless the work of the Kingdom around the world. From the time they were married in 1972, the Shalms knew that the mission field was where God would take them, it was just a question of when and where. After a season of Pastoring in Ontario, they were appointed as Missionaries to Pakistan in 1980, and that began what would become a storied missions career. In the episode today, the Shalms discuss all things Missions. They recount their path into missionary work, they share stories of God's power and provision, and they reminisce of their connection to CCC through the years.

Every year, people are elected to the local boards of education in your area. How many of them are believers? Less than 10%. Getting on the local school Board of Education does not require a degree; it requires a willingness and obedience to a call from God. As believers, we have walked away from the public school system for far too long, and it is time to take a stand and get involved where possible. The kids of this next public school generation need you. We celebrate you believers who are on your local school Board of Education. You are not alone, but there are far too few of you. Please consider running for your local school Board of Education and serve on a mission field that desperately needs an intervention from God.

Christ-following Principals, Vice Principals, Guidance Counselors, and office staff within the public school system serve in a massive mission field. So many in their profession have been misguided and deceived to believe that God has no place in the public schools and that in fact, He does not exist. The religion taught in our public schools today is humanism – a religion as old as Noah. We celebrate those believers who venture off to their public school administrative jobs today. Take heart, you are not alone, and God has not been kicked out of the public schools because YOU ARE THERE, and He is there in YOU. Maybe you are listening today and feel called to join your brothers and sisters in this challenging mission field. Great. You are desperately needed on the mission field of the public school system. Never underestimate the power of obedience in a believer's heart to respond to God's call.
Tina Waldrom is the host of the Win Win Evangelism Podcast and the director of Evangelism in Australia. She loves to equip believers and churches for evangelism. On today's podcast we talk about how Aussies do not want anyone to shove religion down their throat but they are open to having spiritual conversations. You will be blessed as you learn about what God is doing on the continent "down under."
We often think of missionaries as people who have graduated from college or seminary and being sent off overseas. I define the word missionary as someone who is a follower of Jesus who has been sent into a field of people who are lost and hopeless and need to meet Jesus. The public school system is such a mission field. Our students who know and love Jesus are the missionaries sent behind enemy lines to bring Jesus to their fellow students. We celebrate these students today and pray for them because their workplace is the education place. Their workplace involves desks and learning and studying. Their mission field surrounds them in every classroom, at every lunch table, and in every gym class. Can you take time today to Encourage a local student missionary?
A daily news briefing from Catholic News Agency, powered by artificial intelligence. Ask your smart speaker to play “Catholic News,” or listen every morning wherever you get podcasts. www.catholicnewsagency.com - Pope Francis is being treated with antibiotics intravenously and has postponed some of his meetings this week as he recovers from a “mild flu,” according to the Vatican. Francis, who turns 87 next month, spent much of the past decade as pope in relatively good health but has dealt with several painful medical conditions over the last few years. To view a timeline charting Pope Francis' recent health concerns, visit catholic news agency dot com. https://www.catholicnewsagency.com/news/251307/pope-francis-health-heres-a-timeline Father Hans-Joachim Lohre, a member of the Society of the Missionaries of Africa (also known as the White Fathers) who was reportedly kidnapped in Bamako, the capital of Mali, has been set free. According to Agenzia Fides, the information service of the Pontifical Mission Societies, the German priest was released on Sunday, November 26. After being released and handed over to the Malian authorities following a negotiation that was reportedly done directly by the German government, Lohre was said to have been “flown to Germany overnight on a special flight.” Lohre was taken away as he was preparing to celebrate Mass in a church in the capital city of the West African nation. His car was found abandoned and the cross he always carried with him was on the ground near the car. https://www.catholicnewsagency.com/news/256111/german-missionary-priest-released-a-year-after-being-abducted-in-mali Italian Prime Minister Giorgia Meloni has condemned the vandalism of a pro-life organization's headquarters in Rome perpetrated during a protest to mark the International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women. Demonstrators threw smoke bombs, smashed windows, and spray-painted pro-abotion graffiti on the “Pro Vita & Famiglia” association's main office in Rome on Saturday night despite the presence of Italian police at the protest. The vandalism occurred as thousands took to the streets in Italy's capital for a march protesting violence against women. Pro Vita & Famiglia (“Pro-Life and Family”) is an Italian nonprofit organization that helps organize Italy's annual March for Life. The association's headquarters were also vandalized during Rome's LGBTQ Pride parade in June. The pro-life association said November 26 that an incendiary weapon was also found inside the office near the broken windows, which according to the initial findings of the police could have been an unexploded Molotov cocktail or a similar weapon. https://www.catholicnewsagency.com/news/256110/giorgia-meloni-condemns-vandalism-of-pro-life-center-in-rome Today, the Church celebrates Saint Catherine Labouré, the humble member of the Daughters of Charity to whom Mary appeared, requesting that the Miraculous Medal be stamped so that all who wear it would receive great graces. https://www.catholicnewsagency.com/saint/st-catherine-laboure-401 The Church also celebrates Saint James of the Marches, a Franciscan priest in the 15th century who was known as an eloquent preacher.

Marvin Newell, ambassador at Large of Mission Nexus, shares with us five practical ways for the church to strengthen its global Missions programs. Regardless of church size, or leadership type, there is something here for everyone to take away from! [et_social_share]
I know that many of you have been told that in order to serve as a missionary, you need to go overseas. No way. The mission field of the public school system is monstrous. Teachers who enter the classroom every day serve as missionaries and representatives of God at every education level in America. This mission field is under attack. And it's been under attack for over 60 years. Maybe More. There is a desperate need for more believers to set aside their comfort and become public school teachers willingly. Your faith is needed in classrooms of every type and subject. We celebrate those believers who serve as teachers in the public school system today, but we recognize they need more backup. Please consider joining the missionary team at a public school near you. The public school students in your community need to meet Jesus, and you may be their only hope.
In this episode of RED-C Roundup, host Caleb Brawner engages in an illuminating conversation with Zachary Eilers, a dedicated missionary serving with Spiritus Ministries in Wisconsin. This episode delves into the heart of missionary work, focusing on Spiritus's profound mission to kindle faith and empower emerging Catholic leaders, particularly through impactful retreats designed for students. Zachary articulates his personal journey into the realm of missionary service, underlining Spiritus's dedication to fostering authentic faith experiences that transcend conventional catechesis. The discussion unfolds to reveal the unique challenges today's youth face, emphasizing the pivotal role of personal testimonies over traditional instructional methods in these transformative retreats.

The episode further navigates the pressing challenges confronting today's youth in a culture rife with ceaseless stimuli, particularly through social media, and investigates strategies to kindle their curiosity in matters of faith and spirituality. Zachary passionately emphasizes the need for an authentic and adventurous Christian narrative that resonates deeply with the younger generation. He advocates for a communal approach to faith formation, painting the Catholic faith as a thrilling, heroic adventure distinct from the digital distractions saturating modern life. The conversation pivots to the significance of perceiving the Christian journey as bold and masculine, drawing parallels to historical epics and poetry that illuminate Christ's sacrifice in a heroic light. The dialogue champions active engagement in the spiritual battle and invites young individuals, especially men, to discern their role in constructing God's kingdom. Throughout the episode, the focus remains steadfast on nurturing personal connections with Christ and the Church, inspiring young Catholics to take ownership of their faith journey and contribute meaningfully to their faith communities. Listeners are encouraged to explore Spiritus Ministries' transformative programs, designed to facilitate spiritual growth, vocational discernment, and community building among young adults.

Is there a specific work that missionaries should, according to the Bible, pursue? YES! Listen in to this series as we dig into the biblical pattern of the work that the Apostle Paul and other sent-out-ones did. In this episode, we show from Acts 13-14 that the missionary task can be simply divided into 6 parts: Enter a new place, Proclaim the gospel to the lost, Make disciples of those who believe, Gather them into new churches, Appoint elders in those churches, and Entrust that church to the Holy Spirit and exit to partnership.
In this episode, we explore the concept of "thought ladders" and how they can help us shift from negative thoughts to more positive ones. Remembering that our thoughts create our feelings, which in turn drive our actions and create our results. So, if we have a negative thought like "my life is a mess," it can lead to discouragement, self-judgment, and a feeling of being stuck. However, simply trying to replace this thought with a positive one like "I love my life" may not be effective if the negative thought is deeply ingrained in our minds. Our brain is like a well-worn highway, and it takes time and effort to deconstruct that highway and create new pathways. That's where thought ladders come in. Thought ladders are a series of gradual, baby thoughts towards a new thought that we want to believe. Instead of trying to make a drastic leap from negative to positive, we take small steps that are easier for our brain to accept. For example, if we start with the thought "my life is a mess," a ladder thought could be "I have a life" and then to "some people love their lives," "some parts of my life have been good in the past. Maybe I can again." To, "I love my life sometimes." These thoughts open up a little more hope and possibility, and as we continue to believe and practice these ladder thoughts, the old negative thought naturally dissolves away. Thought ladders work because they allow our brain to move in the direction we want to go. But at a pace that is more manageable. It's difficult for our brain to make sudden shifts from one extreme to another. So taking small steps, helps us gradually shift our perspective. Additionally, these ladder thoughts help us feel emotions that are more useful and productive. Overall, thought ladders provide a practical and effective approach for changing our thought patterns. And also creating a more positive mindset. Small steps and gradually shifting our perspective we can move from negative thoughts to more empowering ones. Which ultimately improving our feelings, actions, and results in life.

In this podcast episode, Daniel King interviews musician Zach Blickens, the leader of the music group Cyprès. They discuss the power of music in evangelism and how it can be used to draw people to Jesus. Zach shares his journey of discovering his musical talent and his calling to use music to spread the message of Jesus. He emphasizes the importance of being intentional about sharing the gospel through music and not just focusing on praise and worship. He highlights the significance of involving his family in the ministry and the importance of balancing family and ministry.
Rick Willison, founder of Team Jesus Ministries Incorporated and the Extreme Team, joins Daniel King on the Evangelism Podcast. Despite being blind, Rick travels internationally on mission trips and uses feats of strength to share the gospel message. He explains the spiritual meaning behind each feat, such as breaking a baseball bat to represent breaking the devil's grip and stacking and breaking walls of bricks to symbolize breaking down barriers between people and God. Rick encourages those with disabilities to focus on their spirit and soul and not let their limitations stop them from fulfilling God's calling. He shares stories of miracles he has witnessed, including the healing of a paralyzed woman in India and the subsequent salvation of her entire village.
You heard that right! Lola and Jayden were sister missionaries serving in the same area when they struck up a friendship that turned into a romance.

November 11th, 1998, four missionaries and one senior missionary serving for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints began a long trip to Las Vegas, NV from Elko, NV in a transfer van pulling a large luggage trailer. They anticipated a long but easy drive down to Las Vegas. During the night, snow had unexpectedly blanketed the ground. Nothing out of the ordinary for Northern Nevada this time of year. What they didn't realize is that it would have an impact on all of them and create a story to remember and tell for generations to come. What is referred to as Missionary Miracle, a wreck that should have killed everyone involved, allowed for everyone come out alive and all walked away with the exception of Andrew Blamires. Andrew suffered the most traumatic of the injuries with compound fractures on both femurs. Andrew exercised faith and courage to go through surgery and therapy and eventually make it back to finish his missionary service. Jared Murray, Jason Barnum, and Jackson Howell share their personal experiences from the wreck while sharing excerpts from a personal account shared by President Richard B. Whitaker of what he experienced while sitting in the missionary transfer conference the day before the wreck. *********************The thoughts, ideas, and beliefs we express on this channel do not officially represent The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints.

In this podcast episode, Evangelism Coach Daniel King interviews Michael Sin from the band The Fourth Dimension, based in Malaysia. The band combines gospel and secular music to draw in crowds and share the gospel message. They travel around Asia, performing live concerts and also offer workshops on music arrangement and instruments. Michael shares how he felt called by God to take his music ministry outside of the church walls and reach the ends of the earth. He discusses the challenges of evangelizing in a majority Muslim nation and the restrictions on public evangelism. Despite these challenges, the band has seen a positive response from young people in churches and has witnessed a transformation in the spiritual landscape of countries like Thailand, Myanmar, and Cambodia.
In this episode of the Evangelism Podcast, Daniel King interviews Manop Moonsri from Thailand about the International Gospel Music Festival. Manop explains that the festival started in 2014 and aims to reach young people in Thailand and other countries through music. The festival takes place in shopping malls, attracting a broad audience, including those who may not attend traditional evangelistic crusades. Manop believes that music is a powerful tool for reaching young people because almost everyone listens to music. We talk about the opportunities and restrictions in different countries, such as Thailand, Myanmar, Laos, Cambodia, Vietnam, China, Malaysia, Singapore, and the Philippines.

Robert Morrison was a cross-cultural missionary pioneer who changed the trajectory of Christianity in China forever. He planted a foothold in China and paved the way for every Protestant believer in China today, yet very little has ever been written about him – until now. Eugene's latest book is the first detailed biography written about Robert Morrison in over a hundred years and maybe the most comprehensive ever!

The spread of Western, and particularly Christian Civilization from Europe to the rest of the world is a magnificent story. Unfortunately, most of America's young people never hear it. Most of those who do hear it get a doctored, out of context version written by woke so-called historians who abandon the truths of history to promote their political agendas. This episode of the Return to Order Moment will try to set the record right. Of course, a single podcast cannot undo the years of work of that the university propagandists put into their lies, half-truths, and out-of-context conclusions. Hopefully enough people will hear this to begin to make a dent. This podcast looks at two missionaries to the Americas and a site where much missionary work takes place. These are only three of the hundreds of missionary stories that took place in North America during the exploration and colonization of this great continent. They are essential parts of the American story. We hope that you enjoy them, are edified by them, and use them as a beginning of your own studies of early American Catholicism.

In this week's podcast episode, we discusses what makes up exceptional leadership. We start by talking about my personal experience of growing my business. I transitioned from working with individual clients to hiring coaches and mentors to expand the reach of helping missionaries. I had to go through multiple identity shifts to become a boss and leader to my new team. I recently attended a life coach mastermind event. I was able to listen to a talk on leadership by Erica Royal, the CEO of The Life Coach School. This talk resonated with me because it challenged my preconceived notions of what a leader should look like. So in this episode, we discuss how some leadership could be harmful and seen as controlling. Sometimes it's beneficial to redefine our own understanding of leadership in becoming a leader. Several key points from Erica's talk about exceptional leadership is, vulnerability, rather than strength, is a crucial aspect of leadership. The importance of being curious and willing to learn, instead of having all the answers. Being open-minded and transparent is more valuable than being decisive. Professionalism is not the only defining factor of leadership. Just to name a few. Overall, in this episode we dive into the concept of exceptional leadership. Challenging traditional beliefs and highlighting the importance of qualities such as vulnerability, curiosity, open-mindedness, and transparency. I encourage listeners to reevaluate their own understanding of leadership and consider these alternative perspectives.

In today's world, one of the ways in which we divide people into groups and rate their value is according to their jobs. Parents, we have to teach our kids something different. I love these words of truth from Abraham Kuyper: "Preachers and plumbers aren't any different. What God requires of them each is the same: not a dime's less than everything. Missionaries are no more holy than factory workers or soccer players or the unemployed. Life, lived near unto God, is holy service. . . Whether you do art, bus tables, lay concrete, clean toilets, bring up kids, care for the elderly, perform brain surgery, pump gas, clean teeth, play football, or shine shoes - no matter what you do - do it to his honor and glory. After all, our life is a whole, the component parts of which - play, duty, leisure - must be wrapped in our love like a present, then laid at the feet of our God." Parents, God has gifted your children in unique ways. Teach them to live into their gifts, that all work matters to God, and all work brings him glory!

Denmark's King Harald Bluetooth was among the first Scandinavian rulers to officially embrace Christianity in the early 10th century. Norway followed later that century while Sweden's conversion occurred gradually in the following century. But contrary to the common narrative of Europe's military and religious conquest and colonisation of the region, what if rather than acting as passive recipients, Scandinavians converted to Christianity because it was in individual chieftains' political, economic, and cultural interests to do so?In this episode of Gone Medieval, Dr. Eleanor Janega finds out more from Dr. Anders Winroth, author of The Conversion of Scandinavia: Vikings, Merchants and Missionaries in the Remaking of Northern Europe.This episode was edited by Joseph Knight and produced by Rob Weinberg.Discover the past with exclusive history documentaries and ad-free podcasts presented by world-renowned historians from History Hit.

We're on a mission to understand Moira's off-panel decision to finally confront the dangling plot thread of the Legacy Virus in Excalibur #115, “Missionaries.” Thankfully, we've got comics writer & scholar Dr. A. David Lewis in tow to help us tangle with the graphic medicine of it all, with a few detours into Moira's turbulent love life and Brian's shockingly juvenile penmanship. Also—Emma Frost is there! Content warning: this episode discusses self harm.
“I could've lived and worked in that country my whole life and not seen the fruit that we are seeing now.” That fruit was planted in sacrifice. From the time she was a little girl, Jane wanted to live overseas to spread the gospel. When she met her husband, he had the same missions mindset and a heart for Muslims after he was impacted by 9/11. Jane says her husband enjoyed living in the Middle East, immersing himself in the culture and, most importantly, living his dream of witnessing to people who'd never heard about Jesus. Listen as Jane remembers the day her husband was killed, and how she prayed immediately afterwards. “God used His grace to sustain me through that time,” she says. “He really brought me through those initial days.” Jane will share how they worked to disciple Muslims even before they became believers in Jesus—demonstrating with their lives what it looks like to follow Him. Jane sees how God used their family's sacrifice to advance His kingdom. “God used my husband's death to catapult His plans and purposes for that nation and the people there.” As ordinary people who loved the Lord and lived out God's calling for their life, Jane says being obedient and knowing you're in God's will is the greatest joy you can experience. She's had times of wrestling with her loss and asking God why but says one way she works through those times is to focus, with her children, on things they can be thankful for. This weekend features a special opportunity to pray for our persecuted family as we commemorate the International Day of Prayer for Persecuted Christians. Churches around the world will mark a special emphasis on praying for persecuted Christians. Take time to pray with your church, family, or Christian friends. Pray our persecuted brothers and sisters remain firm during trials, have opportunities to own their own Bible, and continue to share the gospel no matter the cost. You can download free IDOP resources at www.VOMRadio.net/IDOP to be inspired and find specific ways you can pray. Never miss an episode of VOM Radio! Subscribe to the podcast.
