Odd place, familiar struggles

Missionaries Gary and Esther Smith have very different jobs from most people.

The setting is foreign and the tasks are different, but the struggles missionaries face are the same ones you face, and the victories are found only in God.

Missionary Gary Smith wrote that it is so easy to get caught up in the goals of his work—translating, teaching, discipling—that he can forget that the power for everything comes from our gracious God whom we serve. And Gary finds that he can let those tasks—those good and important tasks—get in the way of a healthy walk with the Lord Jesus Christ.
