Is God calling you to be a missionary?

God’s ‘call’ to someone to be a missionary is not authoritative in the way the Scriptures are — your ‘calling’ can never be beyond question.

It was a hot late spring day in the small railway town of Sainshand in the Gobi desert. The sky was clear and blue as it is for much of the year. Inside the small church building, not much larger than a large garden shed, about 25 people were listening intently to a Mongolian…

Web Witness Worldwide

I no longer think of www as merely World Wide Web but rather Web Witness Worldwide. These initials have come to have a different meaning for me as a result of my involvement with truthzone.co.uk as part of my pastoral ministry.
