As we continue our emphasis on giving to Global Missions in December, we are reminded of the story in Luke 24 as Jesus walked to Emmaus with two disciples. Just as Jesus was present with them, our field personnel are present to come near, go with, stay with and break bread with some of the world’s most neglected people.
Presence is listening, hospitality, conversation, compassion, tenderness, empathy, kindness, and welcoming. Presence is attentive, intuitive, and seeing.
Following the example of Jesus, CBF Global Missions field personnel are present to those in the communities they serve.
