An increasing number of diverse leaders equipped to participate in God’s mission of saving the lost and renewing all things.

Resonate Global Mission missionary Diana Boot should have been wrapping up a whirlwind cycle of Educational Care training with educators in Uganda and Kenya—but in late March, COVID-19 hit: schools closed and teachers weren’t able to meet for training.

After consulting with doctors and Resonate leaders, Diana thought it wise to return to Canada. She took one of the last flights out of the country before borders closed and has been continuing ministry as an encouraging mentor from her home in Ontario.

COVID-19 in Uganda: An Uncertain Future

"Our calling is to serve these children," said Benard, the director of A Little Heaven on Earth School. Benard founded the school after he participated in Educational Care training led by Resonate missionary Diana Boot. A curriculum of Raise Up Global Ministries, Resonate missionaries like Diana use Educational Care to equip teachers to share the gospel in their classrooms. 

A Little Heaven on Earth

In Cambodia, many people believe in spirits that can inhabit lands, buildings, or even people. Such was the case of Pok.

Pok and his wife, Oeun, live with their two children in Toul Sala, a village where you send Resonate missionaries Navy Chann-Chhay and Ly Chhay to train Christian leaders. Just an hour’s drive from the hustle and bustle of Phnom Penh, the land is greener and the pace of life is a little slower.

Filled with the Holy Spirit

The Mbembe people of Cameroon may live in different cities and villages, but they all share one thing in common: their language. “Mbembe is their language and it also defines a lot of their culture and who they are,” said Resonate Global Mission missionary Allison Westrate. 

But until recently, it seemed like God didn’t speak their language. Not until they held Mbembe translations of the New Testament in their hands.

Not a Foreign God

Taiwan is located near the initial outbreak of the coronavirus pandemic, but life and ministry continues for Resonate Global Mission missionaries Brian and Bette Vander Haak—with a few precautions.

Allie’s life was in a downward spiral after her friend died by suicide. Running out of hope, she doubted whether she could go on living. At this terrible time in her life, you were there for her.

“I didn’t know what to do with myself anymore, and I didn’t know why I was still living,” Allie said. 

Something to Believe in

When Manqoba moved from South Africa to work toward his Ph.D. at Western Michigan University, God started working in his heart. He gave his life to Christ and is now growing in his faith through International Campus Ministry, a Resonate partner at Western Michigan University that ministers with the more than 1,500 international students on campus!

Growing

Cody Zuiderveen was living his childhood dream of serving as an international missionary—and then God called him back to the United States. Now, his experience in cross-cultural ministry with Resonate Global Mission in Haiti is helping him disciple students as a campus minister at his alma mater.
