What Happens When a Missionary Loses Support?

Episode 194 - Keith Smith

Sometimes missionaries lose support when they are away from home. Maybe there was a change of vision, maybe unmet expectations, or maybe they weren't seen as “strong enough” so their supporters decided to support someone with a better record of success – even when the missionary was simply being faithfully obedient.

Whatever the reason, when that happens, it can leave a missionary feeling lonely and isolated. It can separate them from the resources and break relationships.

But it doesn't have to be like that. We serve a God who honors faithful obedience and upholds the weak and oppressed. And, as Keith Smith shares, we can be part of the problem when we focus on being there to form healthy relationships in the beginning, support them through the tough times, and love them as people and fellow laborers in the Kingdom.

As she shares about the ministry and her life, her love for Jesus becomes quite evident. To her, being a Christian isn’t about following Jesus to have a nice comfortable life. It’s about following Him because He is the treasure. Ministry is more than an obligation; it’s an act of love for what God has done.
