Sharing The Gospel Isn't Complicated

By Tyler Tom on 3 Nov 2023

God has been doing amazing things with our DTS team on outreach in Thailand. As the team has made themselves available, God has opened doors for them to speak the truth and build relationships with people living in local villages. The testimony you are about to read is just a glimpse of how the Lord uses us to be His hands and feet to ensure that those who need Him know they are seen and loved.

A Pack of Cigarettes Led a Man to Jesus

By Carly Snyder on 1 Apr 2023

Our team partnered up with a local church to do evangelism in our city. I was paired with a couple and their eight year old son.

Sometimes it can be difficult in East Texas to share the gospel or pray with people because they give responses like, “No thanks, I don’t want prayer. I prayed on Sunday.” But today was different!

The Send: Joining the War Against Inaction

By Amanda Pearl on 20 May 2022

When I went to The Flood, I was expecting breakthrough, but little did I know what it would entail.

The Flood was a week long event preceding the Send missions movement, held in Kansas City, Missouri. During The Flood and The Send, there were lots of worship times, speakers such as Francis Chan and Lou Engle, as well as outreaches each afternoon of The Flood. Before going to the Flood, I was not completely sure what to expect. I knew it was going to be incredible, but what would that look like?

Sharing the GOSPEL isn't complicated

By Kyra Wright on 8 Jan 2021

SHARING THE GOSPEL ISN'T COMPLICATED

"I don’t know the first thing about talking to people⏤much less to someone who believes differently than me," I thought to myself.

My mind was racing as we stepped out into the neighborhood for the first time to talk to Muslims about Jesus. My first thoughts were, “What will I say? What if I don’t know the answer?

Just as I am | Billy Graham

By Richard Fish on 8 Nov 2017

I sat down in the living room after tuning the dial on our television set to the number my Dad requested. Before remote controls you actually had to get up and dial turn the selector to the station you desired. The picture showed a man standing on a platform with literally hundreds of thousands of people listening to what he was talking about. I was only five years old. The man speaking on the TV was Billy Graham.

Is Smuggling Bibles Risky?

By Tyler Tom on 26 May 2017

On a trip to South Asia, my colleague and I smuggled Bibles into a country that persecuted Christians, and never allowed the Bible to be brought in or published. We knew it was God’s desire to give His word to people in their heart language, so we took a risk and stuffed fifty Bibles into our luggage.
