Psalm 78
. . . we will tell the next generation the praiseworthy deeds of the LORD, his power, and the wonders he has done. .
so the next generation would know them . . . and they in turn would tell their children.
Then they would put their trust in God and would not forget his deeds but would keep his commands.

Missions Blogs and Social Networks

This is the last day of Urbana09, Inter-Varsity's Missions conference. Check out the #Urbana09 trending topic on Twitter.

While on Twitter, be sure you are following @NationsBeGlad. From the international missions ministry of Desiring God, this Twitter feed will keep you very well connected in the world of missions. Daily tweets with great links and re-tweets from various sources.

Here are three different missions blogs you will want to check out:

Wycliffe Bible Translators blog This blog gives you news and updates from the world of Bible translation. You will see updates about the Wycliffe organization generally, as well as posts about specific missionaries and their ministries. There are plenty of brief video clips as well.

Wycliffe blogroll. A list of blogs by Wycliffe missionaries. Hopefully this list will grow over time.

The Seed Company blog. This rss feed (I subscribe in my blog reader) gives updates about various people groups in need of Bibles in their language. The Seed Company seeks to support Bible translation by connecting prayer partners and donors to translation needs in order to complete translations and put Bibles in the hands of people.

paradoxuganda. This blog, written by a missionary couple who serve in Uganda, is one I stumbled upon through another blog. While I don't know this missionary family personally, I love to read their blog. They describe themselves as follows: WHO WE ARE: DRS MYHRE
paradox: 1. something that combines contradictory features or qualities. Life in Bundibugyo is full of contradictions - the beauty and pain; the abundance and the poverty; the joy and the sorrow. Our lives, too...dying that we might live; strong in our weakness; sinners yet saints. 2. a "pair of docs"
