EDITORIAL: Designed with a purpose

‘The Lord has given them special skills as engravers, designers, embroiderers in blue, purple, and scarlet thread on fine linen cloth, and weavers. They excel as craftsmen and as designers.’
Exodus 35:35 (NLT)

As Exodus 35 teaches us, God is the master architect and equips His people with special skills, and combines their team effort to fulfil His purposes. This was the blueprint for the building of the tabernacle and the process God uses to build His Kingdom today among the nations.

‘My prayer is for God to raise up people who
are passionate and skilled in the arts but are also
grounded in Jesus. Those two things are key for this
type of ministry.’

Arabel* is committed to Jesus and keen to serve Him faithfully in the Middle East with her God-given creative gifts. You can read her inspiring interview in our latest edition of awmlink magazine.

You can also read extracts of Arabel’s story in the blog post ‘Can creative arts be used in mission?‘.
