Evangelism has very much been thrust into the spotlight this week with news of the death of American John Allen Chau on North Sentinel Island. Chau was killed by the islanders after landing on the island and attempting to share Jesus with them. Criticism of his actions have been strong from all areas of the world. But why not check out our thoughts on the tragic case and it’s ramifications on cross-cultural mission?
On this week’s LIVEcast, we discuss the wisdom of Chau’s actions in more detail and Glen’s weekly monologue responds to criticism directed at Chau in an article by Janet Street Porter. We also interview missionaries Jeremy Hambrice & Jack Crabtree, currently witnessing to the Wantakia tribe of Papua New Guinea.
And if that wasn’t enough, we’ve also released our Christmas video “On Earth As In Heaven”. What’s more amazing than man walking on the moon? God walking on the earth! Check out our 90 second trailer but don’t forget to watch the full 12 minute documentary.
In case you missed any of that, we’ve collected all of these resources for you right here!
