    Ep7 | Why the Gospel Is Bigger than You Might Think

    Ep7 | Why the Gospel Is Bigger than You Might Think

    Is the gospel just about fighting for social justice, or is it just about seeing individual souls saved? In this episode, Donna Jennings explains that an authentic gospel witness that is faithful to the scriptures doesn’t make a dichotomy out of these two things. We look at the common pitfalls and misunderstandings that Christians can have about the gospel, and what it can look like when a community of Jesus followers proclaims the gospel in all of its fullness.

    Meet our Media Intern

    Meet our Media Intern

    Stephen joined us in September 2018 to do one of the OMF Internships, specifically the Media Internship. Here’s a little bit about him and why he joined us…


    Tell us about your background
    I was born in Chengdu, China, and have spent 14 years of my life there as a Third Culture Kid (TCK). I moved back to the UK in April to Bournemouth until moving over here to Kent in September. I’ve just finished secondary school this summer and I have a Foundation Diploma in Art, Design, and Media.

    What hobbies do you have?
    My biggest hobby right now is by far photography. It’s just about all I ever do in my free time. I have started taking an interest in filmmaking and it is something I am hoping to pursue more in the future. I’m also a big football fan and enjoy both watching and playing football. I enjoy playing in defence and my favourite football club is Southampton FC.

    Why did you apply for the Media Internship?
    I wanted to apply for a media internship because I hope to gain valuable work experience in media production and learn to work as part of a team before I go to university.

    What are you hoping to get out of this year?
    As well as gaining valuable work experience, I hope to broaden my skills in branches of media that I am not very familiar with, such as design and illustration. I hope that my experiences and familiarity with China and East Asia will be beneficial to the work I will be doing at OMF. As a young maturing Christian, I also want to work in an environment that can help strengthen my faith in Christ.

    What do you hope to do in the future?
    As for the future, I know that I want to do something behind a camera lens! What exactly that is, I’m not sure yet, but I know that ultimately I want to use it to serve God. I will most likely be going to Bournemouth University in September 2019 to study Film for three or four years, and then after that on to wherever God takes me on from there!

    Ep6: “Solid, lasting missionary work”

    Ep6: “Solid, lasting missionary work”

    “Prayer does not equip us for greater works— prayer is the greater work.” – Oswald Chambers

    The final episode of our mini-series on ‘Technology’ is all about helping you to pray for the things that we’ve explored in the first five episodes.

    It opens with a story from over 100 years ago about how a humble prayer group in England contributed to Gospel advance in a people group in China.

    We hope that this mini-series has blessed you. The Serve Asia Podcast will continue in the new year with fresh content for your ears.

    Ep5: How Instagram Changed Short-Term Mission and Representing Christ Online

    Ep5: How Instagram Changed Short-Term Mission and Representing Christ Online

    In this episode of The Serve Asia Podcast we interview Heather who works for OMF International in Digital Communications.

    We pick her brains about using social media in a way that is honouring of Christ, and how we have to remember that everyone behind a digital profile is an image-bearer of God.

    Heather reflects on the way in which Instagram has affected perception of short-term mission, and how important it is to keep short-term mission trips Christ-centered.

    Indonesia – Tsunami

    Indonesia – Tsunami

    The extent of the damage has shocked and confused people in Indonesia and even perplexed the earthquake experts. Land cracked, shores washed away, mud protruded from the earth burying an entire village. There was no food, no clean water, no electricity, limited supply gasoline, scarce medicines with just an open-air hospital. People searched for family members and yet dead bodies needed to be buried. With earthquakes happening almost every day, there is an anticipation of even more significant earthquakes in the months ahead. Local Christians are seeking to understand God’s calling for such a time as this.

    Please continue to uphold the nation of Indonesia in prayer particularly the tsunami-affected area. Pray for brothers and sisters in Indonesia that they may respond promptly and appropriately in love and care at this time.
