By David Johnson, AZSBC executive director –
As the truck pulled up to the remote mountain village in a small country in Southeast Asia, a little man ran up to the window and grabbed the arm of the pastor who was driving. “Please come to my house right way!” the man said. “I want you to tell me about Jesus!” This was not the typical offer of hospitality common to the culture. It was a cry of desperation.
A few weeks earlier, the pastor and a group from his church in the city came to the village with an IMB missionary from Arizona. They brought blankets, provided by Zona Youth Camp, to give out to families at Christmas time. The blankets were a welcome gift in that high elevation community that experiences cold weather in the winter.
