The latest episode of the edifying and motivating Dispatches from the Front DVD Series just released: Every Tribe .

In this picture from September 1, 2015, John Piper has his arm around Tom Steller. They are in a staff meeting for Bethlehem Baptist Church, and John Piper is praising God for Tom Steller’s serving Bethlehem for 35 years. Here’s a transcript of what Piper said:

I love these DVDs because they widen my limited perspective on how God is working right now in other places in the world.
My family watched episode 6 a few weeks ago and loved it. It focuses on how a Christian family from South Carolina is spreading the gospel in a “closed” country in South Asia, gaining access with their business skills to operate an excellent coffee shop. Ingenious. [Read more…] about New Dispatches from the Front DVD: The Power of His Rising
