Since the first day World Impact missionaries came to teach Bible clubs in inner cities across America, we believed that these children would one day take the baton from us and preach the Gospel in their communities.
As I was preparing to open the store, I noticed there was someone in our dumpster. At first, I thought it was one of our normal repeat offenders digging in our trash.
Every one of us has to come to the reality that we have been trapped in darkness and seek to drink from waterless pits.
Lois Glass and I have just finished teaching Evangelism Explosion (EE) for Kids to fourth, fifth, and sixth graders at Newark Christian School for the tenth year in a row.
When I first drove into North St. Louis 11 years ago as a brand new missionary, I had no clue how my call to serve in the inner city was going to radically change my perception of community.
