I’d Probably Still Cancel Your Short-Term Mission Trip

I’d Probably Still Cancel Your Short-Term Mission Trip by Darren Carlson for The Gospel Coalition I’ve been told I’m the guy who hates short-term missions.

YOUR WEAKNESSES ARE NOT A PROBLEM FOR JESUS

YOUR WEAKNESSES ARE NOT A PROBLEM FOR JESUS by Adriel Sanchez for Core Christianity I recently had a conversation with an older brother in Christ who was diagnosed two years ago with multiple myeloma, an incurable cancer.
