Anthem Global Mission Update – Divine Encounter with Ice Cream

After a recent Persian language lesson, my tutor and I made our way downtown. As we walked to the bus stop, my tutor & I prayed, “Father, please help us to meet an Ir. that we can share the good news with, and give them a New Testament.”

Anthem Global Mission Update – Recent India Trip

Maurice Roberts and Caleb Hon visited India at the end of January. Anthem's involvement with the ministry there is in transition and they went over to discuss some of the changes we will be experiencing in the near future.

Anthem Global Mission Update – Emily’s Visa

Dear Anthem, I am excited to share some good news! Please join me in praising God for providing my visa to go to Italy! I recently traveled to San Francisco to apply for the visa a second time after the first application was denied in early December.

Anthem Global Mission Update – January 2019

God has provided 83% of my monthly support. In the coming weeks when I reach 90% of my goal, I will be able to schedule an appointment for my visa application at the Italian Consulate in San Francisco. It’s my goal to return to Florence, Italy before January. Thank you so much for your prayers and support! ~ Emily Johnson | Italy

Anthem Global Mission Update – July 2018

Andres: Praise God - For the money that came in towards our plane tickets to get back to Coeur d'Alene this summer! Literally, what was so generously given was EXACTLY what we needed! We are also so grateful for this new house that is becoming a home. It's so close to where Jordan works, so close to where the kids will be going to school, and so close to where we gather with our church on Sundays! We truly could not ask for more!

Anthem Global Mission Update – June 2018

We are almost halfway through the month of Ramadan, which is observed by Muslims worldwide as a month of fasting and prayer to commemorate what they believe was the first revelation of their “holy book” to the Prophet Muhammad. During this “holy month”, followers typically wake up at about 2:30 or 3 a.m.

Anthem Global Mission Update – May 2018

A couple weeks ago we were discussing the topic of forgiveness. Keyvan, a man there, was showing signs of extreme discomfort and conviction. He kept looking down at the table and shaking his head. He finally said there is someone he knows that he just can't forgive. When he said that, the Holy Spirit clearly said to me, "Ask him if he can't forgive, or if he doesn't want to forgive?"

Anthem Global Mission Update – April 2018

Seven months ago we sat down individually with our 5 children and told them we had decided they would be attending a nearby, public school for the current academic year. Prior to moving here, our kids had only been home-schooled in the States. Knowing that our children’s first experience in a public school would be in a language that they did not even know, in a country they had still not adjusted to, was a major leap of faith for them and us as parents...

Anthem Global Mission Update – March 2018

We will be in full-time language and culture study for our first year and are already finishing up our first of nine units. In addition to daily classes and homework, we are also out in the community every day practicing our new language skills. We are encouraged by how much we have learned already- being able to introduce our selves, share information about our lives, and are able to communicate at a basic level in the community. We’ve also already met some really neat people doing some really amazing things for Jesus, which is so encouraging and exciting!

Anthem Global Mission Update – February 2018

This past month has been very full for us. Near the beginning of the month, we began packing for our three-week training and orientation course (which all new AIM missionaries go through shortly after arriving on the field). We shared a tiny little African hotel room with our kids for the entire three weeks, which was an adventure to say the least! We have been back in Nairobi for a few days now and are trying to get back into some sort of rhythm of life. We are continuing to pray about a school for our kids to attend. The one that’s at the top of our list is quite far from our home, so enrolling them there would have to be preceded by a move closer to the school.

Anthem Global Mission Update – January 2018

As we prepare to leave for SE Asia in about a week, we want to thank you, our Anthem Family, for your support, prayers, friendship and faithfulness. We are so blessed to be sent by such an amazing body of Believers. ~ The "S" Family

The Believer and the Desert

God can and often does use the desert to interrupt our lives. He beckons us to come to a solitary place in order to silence the deafening noise of this world and to slow down

Anthem Global Mission Update – December 2017

We’re reminded every year in this season – whether in Kenya or in Idaho – that there is something so beautiful to be found in the waiting. As we anticipate the arrival of our Savior and the time to celebrate his birth, we are anticipating all that God has for us.

In Defending Your Faith, Prioritize These 3 Things

I propose that the task of apologetics can be divided into three sub-disciplines with a strict order of priority.

Three Rival Approaches to Christian Apologetics

The last time I wrote I introduced the term ‘apologetics’ and listed five ways that studying it can benefit you. I concluded with a promise...

The Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse

After asking many individuals about what they are struggling with in their relationship, the reply is mostly “communication”.

Rebranding Christmas

As we approach Christmas at Anthem, there is always this tension we pastors feel to try to one-up what we did last year. I'm just being honest. Have you ever felt that?
