No doubt about it:
2020 was one of the most challenging ministry years on record.
But they still served.
When faced with lockdowns, fear, and economic distress, our missionaries and their national coworkers stepped up to the task. They met people where they were at. They tailored their ministries to address people’s needs. And they saw those people’s hearts grow open to spiritual truths.
And it made a difference.
It’s profound that in our 100th year, we saw our missionaries reach deep for greater creativity and stronger efforts. Nothing would stop them from doing their job. In this year of darkness, they caused Christ’s light to shine.
See for yourself.
As we close out our 100th anniversary, we think it fitting to show that the missionaries of 2020 still have the same passion and forward-thinking drive as those who launched BMM in 1920. We filled this issue of Advance magazine with photos that will bring a smile and a sense of gratitude. Your support has always made a difference—and especially so this year.
Take a look and see God’s work.
