The God Made Known: Through Ordinary People Leading Extraordinary Lives is the second of three books of the Canadian Alliance global engagement story. This is the story of Canadians, members of The Christian and Missionary Alliance in Canada’s family of churches, who left their home and native land to head out as bearers of good news to people who have never heard the name of Jesus.
You will find fascinating stories about parts of the world to which A.B. Simpson first sent Alliance missionaries from his base in Nyack, New York and learn of the cost that some of our Canadian workers paid as they entered lands few foreigners had previously entered with the Gospel. You will also have the opportunity to hear from local Canadian Alliance churches that were part of calling out, sending, and supporting international workers.
“One of the threads woven in the stories you are about to read is the incredible love and sacrifice of Alliance men and women to embrace new immigrants. The explosion of global terrorism has forced millions to flee for their lives. Many are ending up in the neighbourhoods or in other countries where they are gaining access to Jesus.
My hope is that these stories will stir your heart and expand your imagination. It is time for a fresh “shaking” in The Christian and Missionary Alliance in Canada, an awakening of renewed passion for the most vulnerable among us. Could it be that God is asking us to take a heroic walk, to move past the places of comfort and security in our lives in order to engage someone who is new to our country?”
