Some say that the only constant in this life is change. It is true that life on this earth is a series of changes, but we worship the unchangeable God who provides us with the peace that passes all understanding in the transitions through Jesus Christ who is the same throughout eternity: yesterday, today, and forever.

Canadians, John and Jacky Taylor and their family have served faithfully as ABWE Canada missionaries in the Ukraine since 1993. I know that they can tell you many stories about the sweeping changes they have seen in the Ukraine in the past 22 years...

My father went to Israel in 1970 on a tour given to him by an anonymous benefactor. He returned with hundreds of slides and stories. His stories brought the Bible stories I had heard in church and at home to life. We saw pictures of Jacob’s well where Jesus spoke to the woman of Samaria and pictures of the Sea of Galilee where Jesus calmed the storm and also walked on the water. One tangible thing that my father brought back with him was a nativity set made of olivewood which he had bought in Bethlehem. When I hold that set in my hands today, the rich aroma of the olivewood transports me back in time to the hours we spent learning of the land where Jesus was born, walked, lived, taught, healed, loved, wept, died, was resurrected, and ascended into heaven.

Brazil has been an ABWE Canada field for more than 60 years. The Caveys, Cuthberts, and Joyce Hatch were the first Canadians to be sent out in those early days and God used them mightily to reach souls, plant churches, and train leaders.

Winter is coming. Think about the millions of Syrian refugee families who must endure the coming months living in a tent. You can help them with a warm coat, shoes and food. As God’s love is shown by acts of kindness, God then works in people’s hearts by His Word. Our partners in the Middle East have reported much interest in the gospel and many people coming to Christ.

I grew up as a missionary kid (MK) which involved several school changes over my formal education. I can count 10 different schools that I have attended in four different countries over a period of 19 years. I tell you this, not so you can feel bad for me. I thrived in those new environments. Overall, I look back on my formal education in a positive light. Although, some MKs have struggled greatly because of the multitude of changes in their education. Each experience is different.

IMG 2842 MCH smallA hospital is a place for the diagnosis, care, and healing of the body and mind. Without a caring competent staff, a hospital building would be unable to meet the needs of patients. But, on the other hand, without the necessary components of the physical hospital building, staff would have much less capacity to care for the needs of patients.

Imagine the culture shock that Daniel experienced, when he was forcibly taken to Babylon, a place that was foreign to anything he knew. Even though he was away from his family and familiar things,  he determined that he would maintain his integrity and his faith in God. Daniel demonstrated his creative ability to adapt to the Babylonian culture and demands, but he still maintained his commitment to his beliefs. He determined that the culture would not destroy the commitment he had to God, even if it meant opening himself up to persecution and death. Because of this determination, Daniel was used by God in several instances to make a difference in the culture.
