Groups of Christians are stranded in Haiti due to airport closure and are being advised to stay indoors due to unrest in Haiti. We must ask the question, however, can we be stranded when we are where God has called us to be for a purpose on mission? This is a good opportunity to talk about short term missions, their purpose, and their preparation in the event that short term becomes long term. A good resource is the book When Helping Hurts by Brian Fikkert and Steve Corbett.
Arron Chambers, pastor, speaker and author of Eats with Sinners talked with us about the simplicity of using everyday opportunities to share the Gospel. Taking off the pressure for immediate results, being intentional with our time and breaking bread with others with a long view towards salvation all help to this end.
