Christ's transforming love compels us to cross cultures, engage the world, and make disciples of Jesus.
Focus is a weekly 4-minute radio program of EMM which airs on WDAC (94.5 FM) on Saturdays at 8:55 p.m.
Creative ways to give
When we pay attention to the Spirit’s leading, we often find ourselves doing unexpected things, things that were not originally in our plans or our minds. This is a common occurrence here at EMM — among our staff as we dream of new ways to participate in God’s kingdom work, and in the lives of our workers as they respond to the physical, emotional, and spiritual needs of those around them.
When everything stops
What do you do when everything stops? EMM’s Christian-Muslim Relations Team was familiar with a steady flow of invitations to teach, equip, and train.
Battle for the heart
In January 2018, EMM worker Vojta Prkna attended a four-day retreat in the Czech Republic — where he is from and lives — called the Battle for the Heart. It was a kick-off retreat to a longer program that he would go through with a small team of four people. The program consisted of two retreats, individual preparation, and team meetings.
Creatively sharing the gospel
Binsa* is a recently appointed EMM worker serving the Buddhist and Hindu community in Lancaster, Pa. She is a Bhutanese refugee from Nepal, who is now creatively sharing the gospel.
Returning to the village
John and Debbie Coats’ situation suddenly changed at the end of March. The Coatses serve with EMM in Cambodia. They had been in the city for several weeks because the roads to their province had been closed. Since their children’s work was closed by the authorities due to the coronavirus pandemic, John and Debbie were using the time to prepare to help in the village if the disease got out of hand.
A gentle boldness
I’m certain you’ve heard us talk about Dr. David W. Shenk over the years on this program. Perhaps you even know David personally. I’m excited to announce that on September 21, Herald Press will be releasing David’s newest book called, “A gentle boldness: Sharing the peace of Jesus in a multi-faith world.”
