REACHING THOSE OUTSIDE OUR WALLS
God is a sending God. He sent Adam and Eve into the world to care for and develop it. He sent Israel into the world to represent Him to all the nations. He sent Jesus into the world to settle once and for all the problem of sin and death. Finally, He sent the Church into the world with the good news of Christ’s saving work on the cross. As Christopher Wright puts it, “The mission is God’s. The marvel is that God invites us to join it.” So, we are sent (on mission) by Jesus to places nearby and faraway. We reach out in His name to meet physical needs and tell the Good News of who He is and what He has done. LEARN MORE
WHY SEND PEOPLE AND RESOURCES TO AFRICA?
Sending meaningful financial and human resources to faraway places like a small Batwa village in Burundi, Africa not only makes us feel good – it also changes us. I’ve twice now visited this, one of the poorest places in the world. Over the past three years I’ve come to better understand myself, my views on poverty, love and grace, how I listen to others, and how I can better impact my local community. In addition to meeting some immediate physical needs, these outreach efforts can bring dignity, peace, hope and spiritual healing to those we partner with. After three years serving our friends in Burundi, I’ve learned that despite severe material poverty, there exists a deeper “spirit of poverty”. The 140 families in the village of Bugenuzi, (our friends with whom we’ve committed to partner and journey with) share something very profound with you and me. They long for healed relationships. They long to know God. They long for healthier marriages, dignity and trust from others, a future and purpose for their children, peace, security, to trust and be trusted, to be understood and respected - to love and be loved. They cry and hurt over the exact same things we do here in the west. And in that way we all share in the same spirit of poverty. In fact it has little to do with material wealth or lack thereof. Reaching out internationally gives us a glimpse into other cultures and value systems and by doing so gives us a better glimpse into our own brokenness and need for love and forgiveness. Sharing the Good News and being Jesus to others is a universal calling whether we do it locally, regionally, or globally.
