- What We Do
“I hate myself.”
Larry (name changed) sat in a motel room on East Colfax, a street in Denver, Colorado, notorious for drugs and prostituion. Larry had a rough childhood. His mom struggled with drug addiction. Growing up, he was sexually abused and had nowhere safe to go for help. He turned to drugs, alcohol, and gambling instead.
For years, Larry could manage the addictions. But then he lost control. His marriage crumbled. He was no longer able to see his daughter. He had no home.
Evy* had never heard about the Fulani, a people group in West Africa who are mostly from a Muslim background. But that didn’t stop her from packing her bags, flying across the ocean, and moving into one of their communities so people would have an opportunity to learn about Jesus.
Born into a family that considered themselves Catholic, Morgan* was baptized as an infant—but she was raised without faith in God. Morgan’s grandparents regularly attended church, but her parents did not. As a family, they never prayed together, never read the Bible, and never talked about their Christian roots.
“Morgan never practiced religion or explored for herself,” said Resonate Global Mission missionary Naregh Agelaga.
Many people attend Christmas church services who would never otherwise set foot in a church building—and the season is upon us. How will churches host Christmas and Advent gatherings during COVID-19? How can we share the gospel during a time when so many people are ready for hope and peace?
These are questions Resonate Global Mission ministry leaders ask every day. And in Halifax, Nova Scotia, the Holy Spirit is drawing people closer to Christ in new ways.
Sasha* did not believe in God. But while studying at LCC International University, your Resonate Global Mission ministry partner in Lithuania, she’s becoming amazed by the hope of Christ.
While LCC is a Christian university, not all students are Christians. “The vast majority of our students have just not had the opportunity to be exposed to the Bible, the gospel, or church life that includes a strong concept of Christian community,” said your Resonate missionary Steve Van Zanen.
