Over the past few weeks several of us have been on a trip to East Asia. The trip was a great time, not only to connect with people about coffee, but also to catch up with old friends. Having lived there for two years, most of the trip was spent out in villages catching up with local friends and introducing them to other missionaries. When I left, a lot of Americans were in a state of transition so many of the village contacts that I had known had fallen through the cracks. There are so many people there that need to hear and so few workers that can go out to share and disciple with them. My old team, which at one point was about fifteen people on the field, is now down to a single couple and a handful of local believers. The exciting thing is that the local believers are starting to take ownership of their faith, however there is a lot of work for so few people. Over the next couple of months I’ll share some of the stories of our local friends and how they are doing.
