Malachi 1:11
My Name will be great among the nations, from the rising to the setting of the sun.

The heart of God for all the nations is very evident. God wanted His people to shine forth among the nations so all could see His salvation. So it is today. Today God sends His workers into the harvest fields of the world, so that from the rising of the sun to its setting, the nations will know of His glory. It’s all about spreading His great Name to the nations!

Thank the Lord for the privilege of being entrusted to carry His Name to the nations. Pray that our response to His challenge will bring honor to His Name from the rising of the sun, even to its setting.

Kaili Ledo People

Muhaimin stopped for a moment and smiled. Yes, motorbikes were coming. It must be them! He collected his hoe and walked back to his thatch-roofed hut in anticipation. He called to Ani to put the kettle on.

Sure enough the gospel bearers came. These young men had been visiting for months. Whenever they came, it broke the monotony of living deep in the jungle with few neighbors. They joked, sang, and brought fish to share.

Maryam was the first to have come to visit Muhaimin and his family. She was the one who challenged Muhaimin and his family to follow Jesus. She had impressed them with her youth and fire for Jesus, and she could answer all of their questions. And now “the boys” were here again. He’d have to remember the questions from last month and what he did to obey God’s Word since their last visit. The path of Jesus was very exciting. Muhaimin wanted to show that he was obedient to Allah, especially now that Ani and the family had also decided to follow Isa.
