Monthly Mission Report October 2022 – Nepal, Sri Lanka, Haiti

In the eighth chapter of Romans, the Apostle Paul made two statements in which it seemed as if he were peering through the corridors of time into the present day.  In verse twenty-two, he wrote, The whole creation groaneth and travaileth in pain together until now – a perfect summation of some of the reports that I receive from our ministry partners around the world.  Allow me to share some:

From Nepal:  The neighbor to our building has brought a dispute against the church, claiming that we have encroached upon his property.   After a long investigation, the government officials have ruled in the neighbor’s favor, leaving us with two alternatives – either demolish our structure or buy the disputed piece of land.  To demolish and rebuild is far more expensive than paying for the land; so, we are faced with making the settlement within the next two months.  On top of that, a landslide has severely damaged one side of our building

From Sri Lanka, where economic collapse has led to the ouster of the president and many top governmental officials: Our construction project is being held up because of the situation in the country.  The cost of building materials cost has gone up by four hundred percent and the general cost of living has gone up three hundred percent since January.  Essential items, like medicine, rice, sugar, milk, fuel, and LP gas are simply not available – even if we have money to pay for them.  We often have to wait in queue for two days to buy those items.  In fact, I’m writing you while I’m waiting in line to buy petrol.  I’ve been here for nine long hours, and it looks like I may have to stay here the whole night.

From Haiti:  Being the poorest country in Western Hemisphere, we never totally recovered from the 7.0 earthquake in 2010 and the destruction Hurricane Mitch’s 145-mph winds in 2016 when we were hit by the 7.2 earthquake in 2021.  After the assassination of the president, gangs took advantage of the lack of leadership in the country and began to kidnap and steal all the support that was being sent into the country.  They have presently taken control of the capital city and are not allowing supplies to get to the people.  One mission organization’s airplane was burned when it landed in the airport.  We had to stop the construction on the church because we cannot buy nails.

Monthly Meditation October 2022 – Discerning the Times

Once we begin to get our focus on the things that really matter about the end times, we will begin to think a lot more soberly about the times in which we live and will have less and less focus on the sensationalistic approach that many apocalyptic teachers try to incite us with.

Several months before the new millennium began, a lady called me wanting to know what our church was doing to prepare for Y2K.  She was, in my opinion, almost obsessed as she talked about how important it was for us to be ready.  Her whole objective was that when the disaster hit, we were to be in a position to minister to the folks who were going to be in need.  “What a wonderful chance to witness to our neighbors,” she insisted.  To her, the whole thing was a God-given opportunity to bring in a harvest for the kingdom of God.  As people were thrown into devastation, they were going to turn to the church for help and we were going to bring them into the kingdom by the droves.  We, like Esther of old, were put in position for such a time as this!  I had three major problems with her analysis of the situation.

The first problem I had with her scenario was that our church runs a food pantry three hundred sixty-five days a year for people who need emergency assistance, but I have yet to see a harvest of souls come from the soup lines.  I suspect that if the Christians did stockpile supplies to help people through the shortages that were supposed to have resulted from the projected computer glitches, our efforts would have resulted in satisfied sinners rather than hungry ones – but very few, if any, converts.

My second problem was that I didn’t notice anyone at Wal-Mart asking the people who were hoarding up Y2K rations and purchasing generators if they were Christian.  As best as I could tell, the sinners were able to stock up just as easily as the believers were.  Hence, I asked the question why this lady and so many others felt that the church was supposed to have the corner on the market of preparedness for Y2K.
