God has given all of us gifts, strengths. We are unique.

A white van pulled into a motel parking lot near downtown Ashland, Kentucky. The doors opened and six people got out and looked around at 100 doors facing the courtyard. They separated into pairs and began knocking on doors.“Hi, we are from Intersection Church a few blocks away. We are here to meet you and see if there is any way we might be of help to you.”At one door, Robert looked at his callers with amazement. “I can’t believe this. Last night my girlfriend and I prayed that God would send us someone to help us get back to Him. Just now, we were sitting on my bed praying again—and here...

A tourist paradise of sparkling water and incredible beaches, roaring waterfalls and memorable sunrises also has a darker side hidden from the average tourist’s eyes. But God sees what others may miss: homeless people who sleep on the beach, feel hunger and pain, and despair brought about by addiction.The name of the town, Pukalani, a Hawaiian word, means "window of heaven.” A loving God sees this town, and has put compassion into the hearts of the congregation of the Pukalani Community Church of the Nazarene to bring hope and to reclaim these who are lost in “paradise.”In the past year a...

Read this in English.OSSIAN, INDIANA -- Cuando Steve Jones sintió que Dios lo llamaba al ministerio de tiempo completo, dejando su carrera de maquinista, él asumió que se convertiría en pastor de alguna iglesia. Pero Dios tenía otra cosa en mente. Antes de que le entregara su vida a Dios a los 30 años de edad, Jones había buscado placer en la música rock, saltando de bar en bar y bebiendo alcohol en exceso. Todo eso cambió cuando Jesús entró en su corazón y le dio un propósito más grandioso para su vida. Años más tarde, cuando sintió que Dios lo llamaba al ministerio, él tuvo dudas...

Lea esto en español. OSSIAN, INDIANA -- When Steve Jones sensed God calling him into full-time ministry from his career as a machinist, he assumed that it would be as pastor of a church. But God had something else in mind. Before he turned his life over to God at age 30, Jones had sought pleasure in rock music, barhopping and heavy drinking. All that changed when Jesus came into his heart and gave him a greater purpose for living. Years later, when he felt God calling him into ministry, he had doubts about himself. He was a machinist; what did he know about professional...

El fin de semana pasado me encontraba en una conferencia de Trabajo y Testimonio en Columbus, Ohio (Estados Unidos). Allí recibí un brazalete. El mismo dice: "¿Qué tienes en tus manos? Pasión y Propósito, Éxodo 4:2." Se refiere a Moisés. Dios le preguntó a Moisés qué tenía él en sus manos. Él tenía una vara--una vara de pastor. Con esta vara, Moisés pastoreó una nación entera fuera de su captividad y hacia su libertad. Esto es algo grande y muy importante para sostener en tus manos. El hombre que me dio el brazalete es un misionero. Él tiene mucho en sus manos. Él es piloto, tiene una...

Last weekend, I was at a Work & Witness conference in Columbus, Ohio (U.S.). There, I was given a bracelet. It says: "What's In Your Hands? Passion and Purpose, Exodus 4:2." It refers to Moses. God asks him what is in his hands. It's a staff -- a shepherd’s staff. With this staff, Moses shepherds an entire nation out of captivity and into freedom. That's a big, important thing to hold in your hands. The man who gave me the bracelet is a missionary. He has a lot in his hands. He's a pilot, has significant medical training, years of experience in law enforcement, and he runs the...
