Thursday Links: ‘An Open Letter to Southern Baptists and Our IMB Missionaries’ (Chuck Lawless)

I am burdened and encouraged be the recent decision of the Intrenational Mission Board of the Southern Baptist Convention. Due to a lack of funding for several years, the leadership decided to ask many of our missionaries to consider early retirement. Although I appreciate and support David Platt’s (IMB president) willingness to take this hard step for the future health of the IMB, I cannot help but be burdened for the missionaries who will be impacted. Yet, I am encouraged for the possibility of what this could mean for churches in North America, as Chuck Lawless points out in his letter. You can read it here:

An Open Letter

I pray the Lord will use these men and women to increase our passion to take the gospel to all who are desperate to hear, across the oceans and across the street.
