"As the Church exercises its muscles in sacrificial service, it rises to its calling, it steps into the grand purpose for which it was designed. As it does, God smiles." - Joni Eareckson Tada . #Christian #Christianity #suffering #persecution #underground #hardship #joy #God #Jesus #hope #Faith #InstaFaith #InstaChristian #missions #unreached #missional #Jesuslovesyou #jesusfreak
We're still remembering and honoring the life and death of the King of Thailand. #leadership #leader #honor #kingofkings
Seriously. Do the priorities of the global Christian Church include unreached communities and children like this? Who is willing to dream big for God? Who is willing to take the gospel to the ends of the earth? Who is willing to sow their lives/finances/energy into eternity and give people like this a chance to meet the Savior? withinreachglobal.org/donate . #Donate #Christian #Christianity #unreached #gospel #Jesus #God #Faith #pray #prayer #instapray #InstaChristian #InstaFaith #Evangelism #discipleship #disciple #teamjesus #Christianauthor #writer
Life in the far away, forgotten villages of China's bucolic landscapes has not changed much over the centuries. As the boom of development takes over megacities, the chasm between the rich and the poor expands, and these precious unreached people groups still go without access to gospel witness. Will you PRAY for them? 🙏 Will you GIVE to help us reach them? 💰READ MORE HERE: withinreachglobal.org/blog . #missions #missionary #unreached #gospel #Jesus #God #Christian #Christianity #greatcommission #1040window #love #faith #prayforthenations #prayer #pray #wwjd #TeamJesus #ChristianAuthor #instaChristian #instafaith #instapray #nonprofit

Let me show you our water situation in Chiang Mai right now. Don't drink the water from the tap! 💦 #nofilter 😯
Need encouragement today? Here's an exciting testimony in Chinese and then the English translation: . 今天下午到医院传福音,和这位80多岁的奶奶聊得最久,她的家人不在,她又热又渴,我们给她带去解渴的水,也带去喝了永远不渴的水!荣耀归与主! . This afternoon we went to the hospital to preach the Gospel. I spoke with this 80-year-old grandmother for the longest time. She has no living relatives, and yet she was thirsty and ready for the Gospel. We led her to the water of freedom, to the everlasting water wherein one never thirsts again! All glory be to God! . #salvation #missions #missionary #missional #evangelism #discipleship #revival #gospel #believe #faith #community #testimony #pray #prayer #instapray #instaChristian #instafaith #inspiration #church #unreached #loveofGod #jesuslovesyou
Riding elephants last week with my family! I usually say riding an elephant is a once-in-a-lifetime event, as in, been there done that, don't want to do it again! It's a bumpy ride but I made an exception to take this trip again.
Switch On Your Brain by Caroline Leaf is a timely new book I'm working through this week. I'm reading a book per week and feeling absolutely inspired in the process. davidjoannes.com/52-books-in-2017 . "Our brain is changing moment by moment as we are thinking. By our thinking and choosing, we are redesigning the landscape of our brain. Our mind is designed to control the body, of which the brain is a part, not the other way around. Matter does not control us; we control matter through our thinking and choosing. We cannot control the events and circumstances of life but we can control our reactions." . #christianliving #ChristianAuthor #Christian #books #writing #reading #gospel #brain #thinker #instabook #instaChristian #leadership #jesusfreak
Describing the Chiang Mai Walking Street market, the Chinese would say 人山人海 "a sea of humanity" and I concur. #Missions #missionary #missional #evangelism #discipleship #unreached #ChristianAuthor bit.ly/TheSpaceBetweenMemories
We're here at the Sunday Night Market in Chiang Mai, Thailand. My mom, stepdad, and brother are taking in the sights and sounds.
Our Chinese missionaries boldly proclaim, "I am not ashamed of the gospel for it is the power of God unto salvation!" They're at an open market preaching the gospel after being warned by the police to cease evangelistic efforts. Knowing these Christian heroes, that ain't gonna happen! withinreachglobal.org davidjoannes.com #missions #missionary #missional #Christian #Christianity #unreached #evangelism #gospel #church #persecution #instaChristian #instafaith #bible #preach #holyspirit #ministry #pray #🙏 #⛪
