Message Magazine - 2015 Candidate Issue

This issue of Message celebrates ABWE’s 48 new missionaries appointed in 2015. Each one has their own unique story that led them to pursuing the mission field — from a FedEx man to a childhood prayer — and together, they will be helping to bring the gospel to more than 17 countries around the world. We hope you will be inspired by these stories of ordinary people who have yielded to God’s call to do something extraordinary.

Message Magazine - Catching the Vision For Missions

At ABWE, we talk a lot about starting “missions movements.” It’s a big idea but it’s actually quite simple; we want to empower believers around the world to pick up the torch of missions and join us in crossing cultures to share the good news of Jesus Christ with others. We do this by planting missions-minded churches, training leaders, and inspiring them to go out and do the same. This Christmas issue highlights the journey of a new missions movements that is coming out of Brazil after more than 60 years of ABWE's missionaries working to equip and empower local believers.

Message Magazine - Able

When Jesus comes upon a blind man in John chapter 9, His disciples ask Jesus who sinned to cause this man to be born disabled. But Jesus tells us that a disability is not the result of someone’s sin; rather, it is an opportunity for God's work to be revealed. According to the United Nations, roughly 15 percent of the world’s population — an estimated one billion people — live with some sort of disability. That means that the world is overflowing with opportunities for God’s work to be revealed, and our missionaries have taken front row seats. From a ministry to disabled refugees who have fled the war in eastern Ukraine to a school for disabled children in South Africa, this issue highlights the amazing ways God is revealing His love through people with disabilities.
