As you may know the cost of taking the gospel to the most difficult places in the world is VERY high. Many believers around the world are facing the worst kind of opposition for their faith. Many are losing their lives.
When you and I hear about our persecuted brothers and sisters we tend to have five typical responses: We pray the persecution will stop, we pray that the persecuted will be rescued, we desire that the persecutors be punished, we believe that democracy and civil rights are the answer and finally we believe we need to send money so the persecuted will be rescued.
In Nik Ripken’s book, The Insanity of Obedience, we see that none of these responses seemingly are biblical. Give a listen and/or feel free to download.

The reality is that we are all unqualified and God has taken the gargantuan step to qualify us through the death of His own Son. If God can forgive and use me, He can forgive and use anyone. He has forgiven us to be a blessing to our neighbors and to the nations!"

I don't know if you now this but two thousand years after the death and resurrection of Jesus, there are 3000 people groups that are still waiting for their FIRST Christian worker. This shouldn't be!
These people groups are called The Unengaged. There's no one among them sharing the good news.
Check out my interview (at the site player below) with Mike Latsko, a Frontiers mission speaker who works with churches, mission agencies and followers of Jesus like you and me to help us eliminate the word Unengaged from mission vocabulary in our generation. Through his power, it can be done!
I don't know if you know this but there is an amazing spiritual awakening going on inside Iran. Since 2000 there are ten of thousands of new Muslim background believers in Jesus!
I've been following this story for the past 5 years and now for the first time I have been able to talk with someone who's been inside Iran and is an eyewitness to this amazing awakening, Patrick Klein, Founder and Director of Vision Beyond Borders. Enjoy hearing what God's doing!
When I was in Turkey this August I met Jihan, a Muslim background believer in Jesus. This is our conversation. As you will hear from Jihan, he was a devout Muslim and even when he began to become convinced about Jesus, he just couldn't cross the line. He cried out to Jesus "Show yourself to me!" And Jesus spoke to his heart saying: "Why are you so stubborn?" This is the story of a stubborn heart being transformed by the living Jesus! Hey I resemble that remark!

Ahead, LaHaie's long-anticipated follow-up to his 2008 debut CD, Endless Fields, continues to expand the singer/songwriter's foray into the realm of guitar-driven, radio-friendly roots rock in the vein of Jason Gray, Andrew Peterson, Bebo Norman and Matt Maher. The new project was helmed by Grammy-winning engineer and producer Andy Hunt (Jaci Velasquez, Olivia Newton-John, Andrew Peterson, Buddy Guy), who encouraged LaHaie to explore new sounds and textures that embellished his bold, Americana style.
