A Word from David
The risks we take traveling overseas are not always as risky as they might seem. Afghanistan, for example, is a big country, and I was only there for a week. Traveling with experienced guides, we stayed away from Taliban strongholds.
I met Western missionaries in Afghanistan who had all been serving there for years. All of them were able to tell me about other missionaries who had lost their lives, some recently. Yet all had the same perspective as Paul: “To live is Christ, and to die is gain” (Phil. 1:9). That is true, not just for missionaries, for all who are living for Christ.
Be sure to read my article this month, adapted from the blog I wrote while I was in Afghanistan. And thanks for joining me as we all “run with endurance the race that is set before us, fixing our eyes on Jesus” (Heb. 12:1-2). He’s waiting for all of us at the finish line! — David
