Long-term Missions and “The Nudge”

long-term missions

If you come to NYC for long-term missions to reach one of the many unreached people groups living here, I can almost guarantee you will hear about and experience ‘the nudge’ sooner or later. Most likely sooner than later. It happens when God has set a divine appointment between you and another.  As you stroll […]

“Seed week – learn to share the gospel with the unreached people groups of NYC!” When I first saw the above short-term missions trip opportunity in NYC, I thought, “I’m a Christian, of course I know how to share the gospel with someone.” Right? Why do I need to be here to learn how to […]

Why NYC?

The first smell that hits you as you enter a west African market is the spices. Oh, the spices. Cinnamon, onion, coriander, cumin, saffron … Oh yes, the wonderful spices. They mix their spices in a way that I’m not used to. Savory, sweet and spicy all seem to be thoughtfully arranged together. They shouldn’t […]

The call to EQUIP

Equip missionary training among unreached people groups NYC

This was written by one of the participants in this year’s EQUIP Missionary Training program.  My life as a student has been one of longevity yet little outcome. I crammed three years of college into four, and came out with an Associates degree. I loved English, and teachers always told me, “write what you know.” […]

Why I Stay

“The Bronx.” Their facial expression morphs slowly from shock, through pity, to a polite smile. “That will be … nice,” they reply as genuinely as they can.
