Father, Give Me Bread

Resources Collection cover image

Dispatches from the FrontThere are few things that thrill me more than learning what God is doing in other parts of the world. The Lord works in amazing ways and calls to himself people from every nation and tribe and tongue. Yet even in a world that is rapidly shrinking through the new media available to us, we hear far more than we see. Dispatches from the Front is a series of DVDs created by Frontline Missions that gives us a glimpse of what God is doing across the world.

The most recent episode, number 5 (titled “Father, Give Me Bread”), arrived on my desk just a few days ago and I am glad to say that it is every bit as interesting as its predecessors. In this episode Tim Kessee travels to Ethiopia and South Sudan and gives clear evidence of the gospel’s advance in this war-torn region. As you watch the video you will meet brothers and sisters in the Lord and hear how their lives were transformed and you will see just how much work remains to be done.

Keesee writes about all of these things in his journal; the format of the DVDs is to combine video footage with his journal entries. And it’s a powerful combination.

Here is the trailer for this new episode:

And here is Tim Kessee discussing the series:

And here is just a word about the organization he leads:

Frontline Missions has “a key objective and a core strategy. Our key objective is to advance the Gospel and form vibrant, Word-centered, disciple-making churches, especially in those regions of the world that have the least Light. We are driven by the same desire that animated the Apostle Paul who said it was always his ambition to preach the Gospel where Christ was not known (Romans 15:20). How do we pursue our goal? We do so by equipping Christians on the frontlines to reach their own people for Christ, by forming strategic partnerships with them, and by developing creative platforms in those areas of the world closed to traditional missions.”

The DVDs cost $15 each, but you can buy them in bundles which bring the cost down. Why don’t you buy the set, watch it, and then donate it to your church library? They are just too good to keep to yourself.
