The following two articles were written by Max Chismon and Linda Harding respectively. Both Max and Linda were invited to write these articles on Mobilization for a Romanian mission magazine (Noi Frontiere) as a result of conducting several successful SM Mobilization gatherings in Romania at the end of 2016. Max writes on the Biblical basis of mobilization, and Linda follows up with an article on the practical response to engaging with God on mission in Romania in light of the unprecedented opportunities for cross-cultural mission in Romania today. Linda’s message however is just as relevant to the Church in so many countries throughout the whole of Europe, as it is in Romania, in fact, it is relevant to the Church in so much of our world today!
We trust you enjoy these two articles!
