The Hard Job
There are a lot of people in WEC doing a lot of different things, but if one had to sum up what really is the core of what we do, this is what we are about: the hard job.
“Our focus is going to the places of greatest need, and doing whatever it takes, however long it takes, to get to that time when the local believers can stand on their own feet, and take on the task of evangelizing their own people without outside help.”
People come to put their faith in Jesus in all sorts of ways. Most often, it's because someone close to them, someone they trust and respect, is a believer, and they can see something of the beauty and grace of Christ in them. A casual acquaintance with a coworker becomes a deeper friendship because there is understanding and caring. They can be open and honest with each other. Over time the masks begin to fall, and the difference forgiveness, love, and hope make in a human heart becomes evident. "I want that kind of relationship with God for myself!" And so another lost sheep finds its way home to the Shepherd. If only everyone in the world had such a friend who could show who Jesus is and point out the way to Him!
