Discernment—Paying Attention to God at Work in our Neighbourhoods
NAB VP of Missional Intiatives
For years, I was helped by such things as the Global Leadership Summit out of Willow Creek. I bought the books (and even read most of them) and tried to put into practice some of the lessons I learned. Many of them produced results, but I knew there was something not quite right. These were not the only kind of results I was looking for.
As I continued to pastor and lead God’s people, the missional conversation began to grow. It resonated in my soul for a number of reasons. First, it emphasized God’s nature as being missional, not just His action. Second, it was all about the formation of our characters/souls in the way of Jesus; it took discipleship to a new level. Third, it had a strong discernment emphasis. Perhaps it was not stated this way, but it was there. We needed to discern where God was at work in the world in order to join Him.

Missionary of the Week
Jeff and Sonya Kilmartin, NAB Missionaries in Cameroon. For about a decade, Jeff and Sonya Kilmartin have fostered a connection with some of the Fulbe people in Nigeria. A few years ago they returned to West Africa for Jeff to teach at the seminary in Ndu, Cameroon, and work with the Fulbe in Cameroon and Nigeria. However, the ongoing conflict in Cameroon has displaced both of them. Jeff has been working at a seminary in Nigeria, and Sonya has spent many of the recent months in Yaoundé, though more recently she was in Canada to be with her ailing mother (Marie Lebots, who went home to be with her Lord on November 23). Pray for their extended times apart. Continue to pray for the ongoing and escalating unrest in Cameroon, focused in the Anglophone section of the country.
