A Window for Jesus

A Window for Jesus

Recently, I received an invitation to work and teach on another island. This invitation simply meant two things—crossing seas and traveling long hours by land, as well as moving from secondary school to the college level. Realizing this to be a new challenge, I eagerly grasped the opportunity and accepted the challenge. However, I still had to wait

Sharing Space in the Sandbox

I am a counselor living in the southern United States, and have been directly involved with my community for over 20 years. In my work, I come across a wide swath of people—many of whom consider themselves “Christian,” but are from other denominations besides Adventism. Several years ago, my wife sent me an e-mail that first made me laugh, then mad

However, that comment is becoming all too common these days—and by non-teenage-age folks as well. I find it interesting that people—at

Ellen White on Interfaith Relations

God's People in Every Church The Lord has His representatives in all the churches.

Many there are who have faithful

The 9-to-5 Missionary

The 9-to-5 Missionary

My name is Alex and I’m a missionary. No, I’m not in a remote jungle. Nor am I in a village. I work for an organization that employs thousands of people, and my desire from day one was to make an impact for the cause of Christ. I would like to share my story with you with the hope that a little part of my history may influence you to be a missionar
