Near East :: OM workers explain they’ve seen true change happen in their Arab friends’ lives through consistent individual discipleship—often in a coffee shop with the Bible open on an iPad or laptop next to their order of donuts and drinks.
United Kingdom :: “I wasn’t satisfied with what I did in my job [before joining missions], and I wanted to make more out of my life—give this special time for God. I can’t imagine going back to ‘normal life,’ doing a ‘normal job.’” - Waldemar from Germany, OM Lifehope
International :: “My favourite part of being on Logos Hope is knowing that we all are one family. Although we are 60 different nationalities, we have one mind and one vision: serving people and showing them God’s love. OM is different from other mission agencies, because we have a way of working together. OM gives me the freedom to use my gifts and talents for edifying and building others, and I’m so thankful for that.” - Vonette from Haiti, Logos Hope
International :: “Pay attention to your life with God, insist in living in some sort of community, and understand that you are made for mission in one form or another. You have to live outside of yourself. Then ask three questions: (1) Who am I? (2) What road(s) am I on? (3) How do I connect with God?”- Viv from UK
International :: “I look around post-modern Europe, and I see millions and millions of good people with a propensity for spiritual things not even considering Jesus as a spiritual option, simply because no one has been present in their lives that accurately reflect who Jesus is. In Porto, our city in Portugal, there are thousands and thousands of young people that have absolutely no interest at all in church or religion but are searching for that spiritual thing to fill the voids in their souls. I believe with my whole heart that Jesus is the answer!” - Troy from USA, OM Portugal
International :: “I think very highly of short-term mission trips. In fact, I went on six or seven before [my family] went on our first longer-term mission. It is of vital importance to subject yourself to many of the things that you will face with long-term missions. It’s important to smell the air, eat the food, see the people, and feel the shock of new lands and cultures. I believe this played a major role in God shaping the vision and calling of our lives for long-term missions, and long-term missions is where I believe a lot of sustainable ministry occurs. But it goes without saying that God can do, has done, and is doing very sustainable work through short-term missions, as well.” - Troy from USA, OM Portugal
South Africa :: “[At MDT,] I realized that I was hiding myself behind my analytical mind. I did not want to deal with my emotions, and this behaviour caused me pain, anger, resentment, pride, jealousy and selfishness. So I prayed that God would make me humble and to open up my heart’s desires, and suddenly, I realized that I had to deal with sin. … God revealed to me that all these sins that made me feel guilty were already dealt with by Jesus on the cross; I was free and forgiven, once and for all.” - Tiwonge from Malawi, MDT participant
International :: “One ‘victory’ moment that I have experienced while in missions was in Bangkok, Thailand. I had the opportunity to go and do eyeglass ministry in one of the slums in the city. I grew up in Thailand and am able to speak the language, so straight away, I was able to use that in speaking with the people as I was doing eyeglass ministry. I was testing an elderly lady’s eyes, and as I got the right glasses, I could see from her face that she could finally read and she was so happy. She told me that it was like the light had been turned on. This touched my heart to see that I could be a part of helping somebody in their life.” - Suvi, OM Ships
International :: “One of the best experiences [I’ve had in missions] was to be praying through a small village in a North African country, walking with my partner, praying and asking God to bless this town, only to find that another pair had met two young men who gave their hearts to the Lord at the end of a whole afternoon talking together. That was 13 years ago; God is till at work in the lives of these two men. What crazy experiences are these for a woman from a nice, middle-class city in Canada, who never looked for experiences that were so far out of her comfort zone? How crazy is it to see God answering prayer in situations that would have seemed impossible from my limited experience of Him at one point in my life?” - Sue from Canada
France :: “Being involved in missions has kept me aware of eternal issues. Even whilst working as a teacher in the UK before joining OM full-time, my involvement enabled me to stay focused on the ultimate need for all peoples to turn to Christ. Paradoxically, being a full-time missionary, especially in a support role, can reduce one’s contact with the outside world. It is a constant challenge to seek opportunities to have an impact in the lives of ordinary people.” - Simon from UK, OM France
Mozambique :: “At the end of the [Africa] Trek, I realised that I am more sure of what I believe and who I am as a person.” - Shawna, Africa Trek participant
International :: “A significant part of my growth as a Christian was shaped by missions. I matured in my walk with the Lord as a result of my involvement in missions. My hope is that my walk with Jesus would be more close and intimate, and that many around me would respond to His love and develop this relationship that He so desires.” - Seelan from South Africa, OM Ships
South Africa :: “When you get missionally involved in a country, culture, or people group, you start to see the needs through the eyes of God. Sometimes, this can be overwhelming, and you can feel helpless. I struggle with a sense of ‘we must do more.’ This is when God reminds me to be faithful in the things He has called me to and live the example Jesus modelled for us; we cannot change the whole world, but we can share Jesus with others, through words and actions, and He will change the world.” - Ruth from UK, MDT leader
Guatemala :: “You can change a difficult moment in the life of someone you don’t even know, just through an honest and sincere smile.” - Ruth from Guatemala, OM Guatemala
United Kingdom :: “[In missions,] I have become more bold, and my faith in God is increased each day, because each and every day, I have to depend on God to supply my needs, and speaking to different people each day, I have to be bold and believe that God has touched them through His word.” - Roy from Zimbabwe, OM Lifehope
