Pastor’s Appreciation Month

As we kick off Pastor’s Appreciation Month, our NMI president, Teresa Hodge wants to encourage you in praying for our pastors and pastors around the globe, whose support for missions is vital. Pray for effective use of their time, strong relationships between the pastor, their spouse, and their children, time with family, physical and mental strength, opportunities to relax, and wisdom as they make decisions. She also encourages you to pray for Christ to live through them (Galatians 2:20), faithfulness for [...]

Just a Speck

Written by Sarah Comer

In college, I took my first trip to a Judgment House.

Just the sound of it kind of makes me want to throat-punch someone. However, I had never been, and so bored on a weekend, I headed to nearby town for a visit to the Judgment House.

I don’t do haunted houses, so I was a little on edge about what to expect. It was around Halloween, but it was at a church so I figured even if I [...]

Let Them Pray

Written by Erik Gernand

The prayer of a righteous person is powerful and effective. – James 5:16b 

What do you do when something great is happening in your life? 

How do you respond when life gets hard? 

For most of us, whether things are going well, or not, we are predictable in our responses. We develop patterns over time that help us respond to and navigate, all sorts of life circumstances. 

Many of these responses are simply what we’ve learned from people we look up to – [...]

Gainly Gatherings

Written by Ashley Hoffner

It’s been quite a ride for myself and my church here in Argentina over the past several weeks, 4-6 weeks really. But it has never been more busy, which to me is a good thing.

Meeting and visiting with people/loved ones is so important and a huge part of my work. [...]

“Sometimes, though, people who suffer become so meshed in the details they hardly see the forest through the trees – for them, trying circumstances become an inconvenient stump or a fallen log that only blocks their path to happiness.” -Joni Eareckson Tada

A few days ago, I was chatting with my grandmother on the phone for a long overdue phone call. My relationship with her is unique because she’s the last living grandparent that I have, and though [...]

Slow to Speak

Written by Erik Gernand

My dear brothers and sisters, take note of this: Everyone should be quick to listen, slow to speak and slow to become angry… – James 1:19

Man, oh man.

“I have a friend” who struggles with these things mightily. I bet you have one of “these friends” too – I mean, hypothetically, of course.

Seriously though, how many times have you entered a challenging conversation, maybe with your boss, your spouse, a child, a neighbor or a friend, and your [...]
