Confessional From The Other Side

MISSION TALK-Rony Ben Dominic:Life-changing Cambodia

I was a teenager when I first heard about full-timership and its young missionaries, who are now famously called ‘God’s Crazy People’. The whole concept about setting aside a whole year to engage in mission work was an absolutely crazy thought for me and that’s precisely what attracted me to ...

Give, and it shall be given unto you; good measure, pressed down, and shaken together, and running over, shall men give into your bosom — Luke 6:38. For whatever a man sows, that is what he will reap. If we SOW forgiveness, we will RECEIVE forgiveness. Peter came to Jesus and asked, ‘Lord, how many times will my ...
