My Letter To Future Goers

Featured story By on Track: Ministry Region: United States

Dear friends and future Goers, It’s crazy to write this final blog for you. When I wrote my first blog, I couldn’t begin to imagine the type of growth and stretching that the next two years would hold. Coming to the end of my two years, I’m feeling grateful for the many lessons that came from being stretched. I’m excited to share a few, and I hope they are encouraging as you set out on your own journey with God. Be open to where God wants you to go, whether that’s overseas or in the U.S. Never in my life did I ever think I was going to do ministry among unreached people groups in… Read more >>

Taking Off Our Shoes

By on Track: Ministry Region: United States

Hi friends, There’s a quote I first heard in a missions class that’s recently been on my mind. It goes like this,  “Our first task in approaching another people, another culture, another religion is to take off our shoes, for the place we are approaching is holy. Else we may find ourselves treading on another’s dream, more serious still we may forget that God was there before our arrival.”  – Kenneth Cragg I think it’s funny Cragg uses the illustration of taking off our shoes when approaching another culture, because my team and I literally do that everyday whenever we go into… Read more >>

Welcome Back

By on Track: Ministry Region: United States

Hey friends, On August 17 we officially opened our new English Center and welcomed back students for classes. It was great to reconnect with many returning students we hadn't seen in several months. They loved seeing the new English Center and repeatedly said how thankful they were to have a place to come to for community after being in their houses for so long. Our first English lessons included conversations on how the coronavirus has changed everyone's life and how we can feel many different emotions because of those changes. It's been special for our staff and volunteers to have those… Read more >>

A Chicken & A Turkey

By on Track: Ministry Region: United States

Hey friends! You know how you go into a store thinking you're going to buy only one thing, but then come out of the store with more than you expected? That's kinda what happened to me and my Rohingya friend. My friend had several chickens in her backyard and wanted to buy some feed for them. I agreed to drive her to a store and didn't think much of it. However when we went into the store and looked around, my friend noticed that she could get another chicken and big turkey for cheaper than normal! So she excitedly pointed to both of them telling the store clerk, "I want to buy these."… Read more >>

The Most Unlikely Places

By on Track: Ministry Region: United States

Hey friends, Where do you think we are when you see this picture? It may look like we’re in a big Asian market, but we’re actually in someone’s house garage! When I first started getting to know my Rohingya friends, I learned many of them shop at stores that their friends have right inside their homes. A lot of the stores have many different products from Malaysia, Myanmar, and Thailand. They have everything from clothes, skin products, snacks, and even some electronics. I enjoy going to these little hidden stores with my Rohingya friends and seeing how each one is laid out. I often feel like… Read more >>
