Missionary to BrazilEarl HaubnerEarl and Ruth Anne Haubner have been performing mission work in Brazil since 1969 through their Central Brazil Mission Ministry. Uncountable instances of good work and making Jesus Christ known to people along their boat trips down the Amazon River have taken place. In addition, their work has resulted in over 50 church plants in Brazil with more than 6,000 members. Earl Haubner will be speaking to us today. There is much we can learn from someone who understands the link between the worship of God and missions. King David had a great zeal for worship. The book of Psalms illustrates his attitude of worship. It’s quite likely he would revel in the work of people like the Haubners who live a life of worship to God through their mission work. Worship is the fuel of missions. Passion for God in worship precedes the call to become involved in missions. David wrote in Psalms 67:1-2, “May God be gracious to us and bless us and make his face shine upon us, that Your ways be known on earth, Your salvation among all nations.” Psalms 96:3 tells us to “Declare his glory among the nations, his marvelous deeds among all peoples.” Where passion for God is weak, zeal for missions and the desire to spread that good word to others will be weak. How can a Christian worship the Father “in spirit and truth” and not have a deep heart-desire for people all over the world to worship Him also as the true, living, and only God? Today, God seeks true worshipers through our witness, and the witness of His family of believers around the world.
