    Joseph Nyamutera was a Hutu living in Rwanda in the wake of the 1994 genocide.

    “What I saw around me was despair and anger and bitterness in the church and outside the church,” said Joseph.

    The program Healing Hearts, Transforming Nations helped Nyamutera and thousands of people in his country heal from the wounds of the genocide, forgive, and reconcile with one another. This ministry has now spread to countries throughout the world where people are experiencing conflict and tension over race, ethnicity, politics, and more.

    One day, Sean Taylor got a call from someone at Sonlight Community Church in Lynden, Washington. His name kept coming up in conversations about outreach, and the church was wondering if he had ever considered planting a church.

    “I don’t think Lynden needs an extra church,” Sean had told them.

    I have discovered that in the ordinary, everyday moments, great acts of mission happen. A cup of coffee with a neighbor, a text or phone call with encouragement, or just being present have paved the way for conversations of faith.

    What does it mean to become part of the community where God has placed you? For Arlan Menninga, it has meant everything from leading a Bible study to building birdhouses.

    In November 2019, Arlan Menninga moved into his retirement community, a large brick building with 150 private apartments in Tinley Park, Illinois. In some ways, Arlan said, it’s like a college dormitory. The residents run into one another in the hallways, lounges, laundry rooms, dining hall, and yard.

    The Table, a Resonate Global Mission church plant partner that you support in Thorold, Ontario, is celebrating a young man’s new life in Christ—thanks to a discipleship encounter this spring that seemed to echo one six years ago.

    Terence Schilstra, your church planter who started The Table, first met Brian six years ago. They crossed paths outside of the school gym where The Table hosts community dinners. Terence smiled and introduced himself to Brian, but Brian didn’t respond. He simply stared back at Terence—and then walked away.
