Missioner Tales, November / December 2019

I was visiting patients at a medical clinic here in Malakal, South Sudan. I noticed one of the patients, a 5-year-old boy, sitting on a bench waiting for the doctor. The boy had come to the clinic with his mother. He had a painful ear infection that needed treatment. I stopped and said hello to him. We shook hands and I gave him a blessing. Later that day the boy’s father came to talk to me. He was anxious to tell me what his son said about our meeting.

Recognizing Living Saints Among Us

The letter to the Hebrews (13:2) admonishes us to “show hospitality to strangers, for by so doing some have entertained angels unawares.” Certainly if we regarded others as angels in disguise, our world would be way more civilized. Our church rightly celebrates saints in ages past, but what about the saints living among us right now?
