Choices and questions

“Did we pray enough? Did we ask the right questions? Did we challenge them enough? Should we have invited them to spend more time with us? Did we fail?” These are some of the questions that OMer Beth wrestles with when a friend marries a non-believer.

Not lesser, loved

OM workers in Central Asia build relationships with women society scorns, showing them they’re not lesser; they’re loved.

The hardest part is taking the first step

"What they don't know standing at the start of that escalator, is that once you get both feet on, you’re carried. That you don't actually need all the answers, you just need to start the journey," shared OMer Sarah. "I think stepping out into overseas work can be a bit like stepping onto an escalator for the first time. We talk a lot in the Faith about stepping out, but what does that mean? I guess it means going forward, not remaining in one place."
