Dear Friend of RMM:
On July 6, Dan, longtime RMM worker in Nicaragua, South Asia, and Thailand, came to settle here in Columbus, Ohio. My wife and I greeted him at the airport and took him out to dinner. After our meal, we walked to a nearby cell phone store to get him connected to his new world—a world that he was a little unsure of after living in a cross-cultural setting for so much of his life.
His return didn’t make sense to me at first. After forty fruitful years, why would God lead Dan away from the unreached fields of Asia? The need is too great, and there is much work yet to be done—the very work that Dan has spent his life doing: staying mobile; sharing the gospel with Muslims, Hindus, and Buddhists; making disciples; and training leaders so that they can establish the church among their own people.
Jesus told us, “The harvest is plentiful but the workers are few” (Matthew 9:37). The number of people that Dan could potentially reach overseas is immense. So, why did God call him back to the U.S.?
Over the last few months, I’ve begun to understand what God may be doing. Dan’s wisdom and experience can help train and motivate a new generation of disciple makers from within our churches to go and do just as he did. Since his return, Dan has begun coaching church planters and mobilizing students from REACH and Rosedale Bible College to engage those from other cultures both here and abroad. Dan may have returned to the United States, but his passion to see the unreached come to know Jesus is as strong as ever.
RMM believes that God is calling new workers to join our teams in Southeast Asia, North Africa, and the Middle East. We also believe he is leading us to new locations and new endeavors where the opportunity and need are greater than ever. From within our churches, small groups, friends and families we must respond to Jesus’ desire to “send out workers into his harvest field” (Matthew 9:38).
Will you offer yourself, your children, your finances, for the greatest cause of all?
We invite you to join RMM in asking, in sending, and in being sent!
All for Jesus,
