This is a sales pitch. Yes, it really is. However, it’s not a pitch that brings me any personal gain whatsoever. (Feel a little more comfortable to read on?) It will though bring you much gain!
We’ve been watching a series of DVD’s at our place that are rocking my world, and I feel it would be an injustice not to make mention of them to you. They’re titled “Dispatches From the Front” and are available through a multitude of sources (we went Amazon). You can check out their site here.
By the way, they are relatively inexpensive. I’ve seen them advertised as low as five dollars and never for more than fifteen each.
These films allow the viewer to go into mission fields around the world, but focuses primarily in the areas of our world where the population is the greatest and the gospel has least been shared, known as the geography of neglect (check out the map from Frontline Missions).
These are stirring and life-changing movies. I forewarn you that some scenes are hard to watch as the producers wanted to give us a dose of reality. There’s even a warning not to distribute scenes and footage as many of these missionaries are in areas of great persecution.
As we have multiple friends serving both long-term and short-term throughout that rectangle (see page links above), I’m compelled to both shout with joy that the name of Jesus is being named where He is not known, while lifting prayers of tears for my friends as they endure much hardship for our Lord’s gospel.
Consider these DVD’s… and please pray for our missionaries. They are truly learning firsthand what it means to know the fellowship of His suffering.
