A few weeks ago, my wife and I watched Dispatches from the Front: Islands on the Edge, the first in a series of DVDs from Frontline Missions. It was edifying, educational, powerful, and moving—well worth the 50 minutes we spent watching it. I highly recommend it. But consider yourself forewarned: it may start some discussions about quitting your job(s) and moving to a foreign country—or at least evaluating your praying for and giving to foreign missions.
Here’s the description of the series:
Believers everywhere desperately need a renewed vision of Christ and the unstoppable advance of His saving work in all the earth. Often our view of God’s Kingdom is too small and limited to what we have experienced. Dispatches from the Front provides a rare glimpse into this work, highlighting the marvelous extent, diversity, and unity of Christ’s Kingdom in our world. The journal format of each episode underscores the daily unfolding of God’s activity on the “frontlines,” bringing viewers up-close with sights and sounds from distant corners of the Kingdom.
