The first three volumes in the ON MISSION series were “Stories of Those Who Went,” which included thirty-six biographies of international workers. Most of those achieved two to three decades of ministry in their field of service. How can an international worker, despite facing so many obstacles living in another culture—being away from the comforts of a Canadian home, facing loneliness, suffering, discouragement, working in another language, while raising children in a new setting—continue in ministry for such a long time?
Volume four in the ON MISSION series seeks to pull back the curtain to show how a plethora of systems, policies, structures, and people in place provide care, guidance, prayer, and sustaining strength for those on the frontlines. This includes the lengthy process of identifying and developing healthy workers and, secondly, maintaining and providing adequate care of workers while on assignment. They are not left alone.
The people of God—through their churches, sending agencies’ leaders, specialists, and member care providers—all help to achieve the last phrase of the Great Commission where Jesus says, “…I’ll be with you as you do this, day after day after day right up to the end of the age” (Matthew 28:20, MSG). The keeper side of God is very apparent through His people as His ambassadors take the good news of Jesus around the world to yet unreached peoples.
