Picking up our series on Questions and Answers. This is our way to let people ask questions about missions, evangelism, and church planting to real missionaries to Italy. The question for today is an important one because it has to do with an important grace that God has given us - fellowship within the body of Christ.Q | Do you have local fellowship?Links:Episode on YoutubePMc SpeakpipeQuestions and AnswersTo ask your own question send us a message through the PMc site or leave us a voice message on the PMc Speakpipe. Support the show (https://www.practicalmissions.org/donate)
In this episode, we share from 2 PMc blog posts in which we share recommended resources. In our day of constant media bombardment, it is of great importance that we are intentional and careful about what we give our attention to. Just like not every book in the Christian bookstore is worth your time and attention, so not every "Christian" podcast is worth your time and attention. Links:PMc Blog Post - Podcast RecommendationsPMc Blog Post - Podcast Recommendations - a few moreEpisode on YoutubePractical Missions CohortPMc Outreach Podcast in Italy - Vera VitaAmazon Smile LinkLike Jesus driven to His cross so we drive ourselves to the singular task of the edification (planting) of Biblical churches in Italy.Support the show (https://www.practicalmissions.org/donate)

In this episode, we read a short section of J.D. Payne's book titled, Apostolic Church Planting. He points out how pioneering contexts in cultures with little to no gospel presence need to be understood differently in regards to expectations of pastors. We then share 3 ways from our experience that an apostolic planter can be wrongly understood by pastoral planters.Links:Book - Apostolic Church Planting on AmazonEpisode on YoutubePractical Missions CohortPMc Outreach Podcast in Italy - Vera VitaAmazon Smile LinkLike Jesus driven to His cross so we drive ourselves to the singular task of the edification (planting) of Biblical churches in Italy.Support the show (https://www.practicalmissions.org/donate)
In this episode, we share a PMc blog post from 2017 that helps us remember that God is concerned greatly about our sanctification and how we live out the call as missionaries. When the Lord's servants in Italy can endure the refining fire, by His grace, they can also be fine-tuned instruments of His grace in Jesus' global mission.Links:Blog Post - Refining Fire of ItalyEpisode on YoutubePMc Outreach Podcast in Italy - Vera VitaPractical Missions CohortAmazon Smile LinkLike Jesus driven to His cross so we drive ourselves to the singular task of the edification (planting) of Biblical churches in Italy.Support the show (https://www.practicalmissions.org/donate)

We start with a Bible exhortation from Luke 14:33 -- So therefore, any one of you who does not renounce all that he has cannot be my disciple.

In this episode, we share 2 book recommendations for individuals and families. One will give you a good history of the work of missionaries over the centuries (great for Sunday evenings), and the other is like a handbook for missions (great for anyone getting personally involved in missions). We find it to be extremely practical. We recommend it as a must-read for all our future missionaries.Links:Book: From Jerusalem to Irian Jaya by Ruth TuckerBook: On Being a Missionary by Thomas HaleAmazon Smile LinkSpecial Needs - Media Ministry Equipment, Baby ItemsEpisode on YoutubePMc Outreach Podcast in Italy - Vera VitaLike Jesus driven to His cross so we drive ourselves to the singular task of the edification (planting) of Biblical churches in Italy.Support the show (https://www.practicalmissions.org/donate)

We are now picking up our series on Questions and Answers. This process began back when we used to have Q&A panels with missionaries and students from the USA at SBI. It is a great way to let people ask questions about missions, evangelism, and church planting to real missionaries to Italy. The question for today is an important one because this life-changing and forming discipline has been largely lost in our day.Q | How do you do family worship/devotions on the mission field?  In addition to sharing how we personally live this out, we also share why this is so important, 3 practical tips, and two book recommendations for others.Links:Episode on YoutubeBook Recommendation: The Most Important Place on EarthBook Recommendation: A Neglected GraceTo ask your own question send us a message through the PMc site or leave us a voice message on the PMc Speakpipe. Support the show (https://www.practicalmissions.org/donate)

All Christians desire to obey their Master, but few of us are actively involved in the work of evangelism. One big reason is because of the reality of fear associated with this unique task that God has given us. If you too struggle with the fear of evangelism, listen to this episode for some practical tips for putting this paralyzing fear to death. May God help us all to be more faithful and fruitful witnesses for Christ.1.) Remember and Know — you are talking to Spiritually Dead People2.) Know Your Role in God’s Plan of Salvation3.) Remember that as you bring the good news You are the one with the blessed feet.4.) Know how the Enemy Will Tempt You5.) Know that to Not Witness is to Sin.6.) Remember that You are in Good Company7.) Be Full of Faith, Grace, Love and Truth8.) Get Over/Forget/Deny Yourself9.) Fast if Necessary10.) Be Full of Hope (and joy)!Bonus: keep Good company with others who obey Jesus and evangelizeLinks:Youtube EpisodeDonateMissionary Q&ASpeak Pipe Voice Message ServiceSupport the show (https://www.practicalmissions.org/donate)
