Mission Report April 2023 –  Democratic Republic of the Congo

I have a really exciting testimony to share from my recent mission to the Democratic Republic of the Congo, but I need to give you a bit of the background before I can tell you what happened. On Delron’s last trip to the Congo, he visited a friend of his who, after completing medical school, had taken the challenge of running an underfunded and ill-equipped hospital in a remote area of the country. As he was touring the grounds, Delron noticed a group of pregnant women camping on the lawn. The doctor explained that the women have no way of knowing exactly how far along they are in their pregnancies; so, they come early and wait to avoid having to travel over the rough terrain while in labor. With that explanation, Teach All Nations made the decision to buy the hospital a portable ultrasound machine that the doctor could take to the villages and check the women so he could tell them when they needed to come to him for their deliveries. This is where my story begins; I delivered the machine on this trip and asked if I could witness its first use. Well, it turned out that the doctor picked just the right lady for the demonstration. I watched the ultrasound as I held the baby’s mother head up so she could see the baby’s image on the screen. We could tell there was little movement, and the doctor realized that there were complications that required an emergency C-section. After the operation, he told me that the baby would have died if they had not examined the mother with the new ultrasound machine. Thanks to the friends and supporters of Teach All Nations, a life was saved – and on the very first time the machine was used!! This experience will forever be in my memory.

Monthly Meditation April 2023 – The Holy Spirit, The Person of God, Present with Us

It is of utmost importance that we remember that Jesus referred to the Holy Spirit in personal terms – as an individual rather than as an influence or substance. Unfortunately, many people today see Him as an influence rather than a person with whom we are to develop a relationship. If we truly understood the Holy Spirit as He is portrayed in the scriptures, we would readily see Him as a person – not just an influence or doctrine. He is God with all the qualities and characteristics of the Father and Jesus. The Holy Spirit is not just an influence, an anointing, a power, a mystery, or an experience – He is a divine person to be loved, revered, and welcomed just as we would Jesus Himself. Until we come to know the person and personality of the Holy Spirit, we are going to miss the most important factor that we have available to us in fulfilling our commission in the world today.

One of the first truths that we need to realize about the person of the Holy Spirit is that He is equal and co-existing with the Father and Jesus. Jesus Himself told the original disciples to recognize Him as equal when baptizing new believers into the church. (Matthew 28:19) The Apostle Paul recognized the co-existing quality of the Holy Spirit when he addressed the Corinthian church. (II Corinthians 13:14) Even though we will come to know the Holy Spirit as a person and as a friend on an individual level, it is of ultimate importance that we never allow ourselves to see Him as any bit less than God Himself. He must always be reverenced, respected, and honored on an equal basis as God the Father or God the Son.
