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...

I met Dave when I was doing homeless outreach in downtown Las Vegas, Nevada. Dave was a heavy drinker. We had tried three times to get him sober, but each time he left detox and returned to drinking on the streets. One day, though, he reached out to me for help.A friend who directs a sober living program and I created a plan to help Dave. We would take him with us to a one-day intervention being held by homeless outreach agencies in the area. Even though he had asked for help, I still feared Dave might be drunk and miss the appointment, so I surprised him with a 4:30 a.m. wakeup call. I...

The scent of burnt wood, grass, flesh, and various debris filled the air in the Highlands of Papua New Guinea in September 2015. It was Independence weekend, but tribal war in this Pacific Island nation is still a reality. A death the day before tragically had triggered tribal rivals’ revenge, burning many homesteads, animals, and destroying other property. It left nothing but ashes and brokenness behind. On the grassy hillsides of the Wahgi Valley are the communities of Kudjip and Banz. Nearby, live people who for centuries have worked the ground, and built their lives there. Out of...
