Perspective


Efficiency & stewardship in communication

In this issue’s Insight, Executive Director John Bueno shared that AG World Missions is showing great care in being good stewards of the funds people give sacrificially to the cause of World Missions. Wherever possible, we are cutting back on travel, limiting meetings and reducing special projects. Another measure we have been compelled to take is reducing the number of issues of the World Missions Edition of Today’s Pentecostal Evangel.

For more than 10 years we have enjoyed a wonderful partnership with the Evangel. Merging Mountain Movers with the Evangel to highlight World Missions the first Sunday of every month was a very beneficial venture between AG World Missions, Today’s Pentecostal Evangel and Gospel Publishing House.  It resulted in both greater efficiency and greater effectiveness.

But the hard realities of budgetary constraints clearly indicate that we cannot continue to publish 12 issues each year. During the summer months — June, July, August — the first Sunday of each month will no longer feature a World Missions Edition. We will resume again in September and continue to publish nine issues a year. These three summer issues will now be sponsored by Convoy of Hope, AG World Missions’ primary partner in relief efforts and evangelistic compassion outreaches.

I recently accompanied Regional Director Omar Beiler to India, in prep-aration for the September issue on the Eurasia region. It will be an inspiring and provocative look at the area with the largest population, the most unreached people groups and some of the greatest challenges. But you will also find that God’s Spirit is moving in incredible ways to expand the kingdom of our Lord.

Thank you for being a faithful reader of the World Missions Edition. Be looking for the exciting issue on Eurasia the first Sunday in September.
