FOCUS

 

 

Melanie, a nurse from Kansas is discerning a long-term call. Navigating how to use her gifts and professional skill-set while adapting to culture is a challenging adventure. This season has provided an opportunity for Melanie to explore her identity in Christ as an ambassador of the Gospel and her call to support national workers in new ways.

Joanna’s assignment of entering into a language proficiency program at a university with students from numerous other countries has been an amazing opportunity. She is among people who are new in the country, learning culture, the local language, and discovering what it is like to be the newcomers in a foreign country. As Joanna grows in relationship with her new friends, she is finding opportunities to share the love of God and how Jesus is the one that gives her strength and comfort in complicated situations. It was so encouraging to learn that she has made many close friends who are curious about Jesus.

TREK

The TREK team was adjusting to cultural differences and being stretched in every aspect of life and discipleship. Each was growing in specific areas of their faith. We helped them set new goals as they anticipated the start of the school season, where they could serve the Kings Kids school, our major partner in Uganda. Their youthful enthusiasm was a joy to be around and we look forward to hearing how their time at the school has gone.

The Meeting Place Vision Trip – Church to church to church

Our home church’s mission committee met us in Thailand for a whirlwind vision trip tour of the first-generation church planting movement in Thailand. We were able to meet with four Thai churches in the Chachoengsao area, a Myanmar church movement in 5 different outreach locations in Mae Sot, 2 more church plants and a missional business, Naomi House, in Chiang Mai. Along the way Pastor Bank and Jeremy Penner were timely and instrumental resources helping our team understand Thai and Myanmar Buddhism and how the Gospel of Jesus is contextualized among their communities.

The vision trip was a success! We were all inspired to discern ongoing partnerships and to live out our salvation with new vigor in our home contexts. The passion, sacrifice, and intentionality with which our Thai and Myanmar brothers and sisters modeled is only comparable to the church we read about in Acts 1-3.

Thailand FOCUS retreat

Finally, Dave Sinclair-Peters joined Carol and I in facilitating a retreat for DJ and Rose Gerrie and their two girls, Kiana (3) and Jasmine (1). The Gerrie's assignment is in the concrete jungle of Bangkok among Myanmar immigrant workers. They are learning how to be dependent on the Holy Spirit and the Myanmar community as they navigate learning a new language and living in a different culture. The Gerrie’s are learning language and resiliency being a Christian family among Myanmar believers transitioning from Buddhism and a war-torn country. It was so good to worship, pray, process, and play together. Kiana and Jasmine love water, so we spent a lot of time near the ocean and pool at the retreat centre.

MWC

As I write these words, the cycle of violence and retaliation continues to deepen. It is almost impossible to say anything about that situation without angering someone somewhere, as was the case with the Reconciling response to war in the Middle Eaststatement we wrote in October 2023. And yet, we are called to respond, as a Global Communion, to this and many other terrible scenarios of war we see today. That is why we invite you, in this issue of Courier, to reflect on understanding biblical messages in terms of today’s realities.

César García is general Secretary of Mennonite World Conference. Originally from Colombia, he lives in Kitchener, Ontario, Canada.
