Behind the Scenes January-April 2019 “Everybody can be great be- cause anybody can serve. You don’t have to have a college degree to serve. You don’t have to make your subject and verb agree [although I’ll try to help in that area]. You only need a heart full of grace. A soul generated by love.” —Martin Luther King Jr., minister and social activist “We acquire the characteristics of the people we associate with.” —Zig Ziglar, motivational speaker “Remember. Every day, some ordinary person does something extraordinary. Today, it’s your turn.” —Lou Holtz, former Notre Dame football coach All of these quotes, by people I admire, showcase a leadership trait. What can we learn? 1. To be a great leader, we must learn to serve. 2. To lead others, we must first watch and learn from those we want to be like. 3. Anyone can do extraordinary things because we serve an extraordinary God. We must have the eyes to see it. In this issue of Outreach Online, you will read the stories of several ordinary people, like you and me, who are doing extraordinary things for the kingdom as leaders in the Global South (formly called the “de- veloping world,” including Africa, Latin America, and the developing countries in Asia) and beyond. Pray with OMS as we strive to develop godly, competent disciple-makers around the globe. “And what you have heard from me in the pres- ence of many witnesses entrust to faithful men, who will be able to teach others also” —2 Timothy 2:2. Volume 4, No. 1 Outreach Online equips Christians to make disciples of Jesus Christ through informative, inspiring, and involvement-driven articles, which leads to deeper mission participation by serv- ing, giving, and praying.
