049. How To Provide Emotional Help Without Hurting with Rachel Parentaeu When you think about a missionary, where does you mind go? I hope if you’ve been listening to this podcast for a while that you know that missionaries are at work in many different places doing all sorts of things. But for most, when they picture a missionary, they think living in a hut in africa, or in the jungles of South America. But there are missionaries everywhere, why? Because sin is everywhere, and there are hurting people everywhere who need help.   Today I talk with Rachel Parentaeu, a missionary in Scotland whose ministry is all about connecting with people who are going through rough times.   Rachel Parenteau is originally from Toronto, Canada and is serving as a missionary at Charleston Community Church in Dundee, Scotland. She serves with an organization called 20schemes which seeks to revitalize and plant gospel-preaching churches in Scotland's 'schemes' (areas with high levels of poverty, social deprivation, crime and drug and alcohol abuse). She studied psychology at York University in Toronto, Canada and is currently studying theology at the Union School of Theology located in Bridgend, Wales. In her spare time she likes to kickbox, do watercolour painting and spend time outdoors.  When we think of Scotland, we think of rolling green hills and peaceful countrysides with bagpipes playing in the background. That might be the reality for some, but for Rachel it’s far from that. She works in the Schemes of Scotland, home to some of the highest numbers of domestic abuse and violence in all of Europe. Rachel’s job is to simply connect and love those who need it most. She hosts many different events and groups through the local church and aims to minister to people in a way that's actually helpful to them instead of harmful, and she walks us through how we can learn to do the same for those who are hurting in our lives.  Get Involved!   Instagram : www.instagram.com/brightestvoices Facebook : www.facebooik.com/groups/brightestvoices
048. What It's Like To Be A Bible Translator with James & Jenneka Lundeen Did you know there are 7,360 languages spoken in the world? And that some portion of the Bible is translated into only 1,160 many of them? But only 704 languages have the full Bible? How crazy is that?! Just let that sink in for a moment. There are so many lost people in the world that need to have the word of God available for them.Thankfully, there are many faithful missionaries in the world that are working hard to bring the bible to those who need it. 2,731 languages have active translation work happening right now.    In today’s episode I got the pleasure of meeting two of those faithful missionaries actively translating the Word Of God, James and Jenneka Lundeen, and hearing all about what the process of Bible translation is really like    James and Jenneka Lundeen serve with Pioneer BIble Translators in Tanzania, East Africa. Pioneer Bible Translators seeks to bring the Bible to people groups who do not yet have the full Bible in the language that speaks best to their hearts. The Lundeens met while in graduate school preparing to go overseas to work in missions. They are living and working with their people group in Tanzania, and working with a team of native speakers to translate the Bible. They are excited to see how the Bible and the Holy Spirit will transform this community of people.   I talk with James and Jenneka all about what their lives are like as missionaries and Bible translators in Tanzania living amongst a people group much different than their own. We talk about the struggles of learning a language and immersing yourself in a new culture and they share the nitty gritty of what you need to know if you would like to do the same.  Get Involved!   Instagram : www.instagram.com/brightestvoices   Facebook : www.facebook.com/groups/brightestvoices
