Yanaigua, The Parallel

To whom are we to take our hats off?

Do the missionaries who evangelize in the jungle expose themselves to more danger than those who ministry in the big metropolis of the world? Does a missionary in the “civilized” world sacrifice less than the one living in the bushes?   Well, “Who are (we) to judge someone else’s servant? To their own master, servants stand or fall.” Romans 14:4. It is a matter of the Lord’s calling. Developed countries with sophisticated people need the Gospel as much as the aboriginals in the wilderness. Anyone who takes a stand for the Lord and testifies of Him is exposed to be ridiculed, mocked at and to receive threats whether be in the hut of a rural community or in the classroom of a high prestige university. Death is a possibility wherever we are. Danger can come from a wild animal or from a wild bunch of drug addicts. Frustration and discouragement for a missionary can be from a lame mule or from traffic jam. Polluted water is affecting the planet everywhere.

Missions began in a manger in Bethlehem. Nothing compares to that act of self-denying, self-giving and self-sacrificing.  He is our example to follow. We love him because He loved us first. We give because he gave first. We go because He came first.

  1. Thanks for all the Yanaigua news. There is so much that goes on and has gone on that we know so little about. Glad you could get a taste of that.

    God bless you and may the New Year be special, too. Maybe the Lord will come!
    Warm greetings in Christ,

    Charlie and Betty

  2. Es cierto que a los misioneros urbanos como que se piensa que no corren peligros, pero…¿alguna ocasión se han visto correteados por una banda de drogadictos? ¡uy! semejante a huir de una banda de caníbales,je,je. También ellos necesitan conocer del Señor.
    Estemos preparados para esperar la venida de nuestro Señor.
    ¡Te deseo un excelente 2011 en Cristo!
