Missional Field Notes

Quotes, Examples, and Ideas from My Missional Frontier

Photo by Doctor Wendy Longo

“In the long view there have been rises and falls in the church’s visible success and faithfulness and mission. There were times when there seemed to be success and it turned out to be hollow. There were other times when there seemed to be failure and persecution, and it turned out that there was still vitality. It is not for us to reckon these things; we know that God will conquer and that God will take up into the fulfillment of our ministry of presence. We do not have to figure out when or how soon this will happen. In fact, one of the things that God uses for divine purposes is our patience, which means our willingness to take the long view.”
