Ligonier Ministries released a new documentary this week on R.C. Sproul titled Discovering the Holiness of God. The brief 14-minute video details Sproul’s life—his unconventional conversion, the formation of Sproul’s teaching and his discipleship center Ligonier Ministries, his first video series on the holiness of God in the early 1970s, and his commitment to the inerrancy of Scripture. The documentary is based on Stephen Nichols recent biography R.C. Sproul: A Life.

Skyway Railroad, an Assemblies of God ministry aimed at rescuing victims of human trafficking, is in the process of releasing an app slated for an April launch date. The app would assist in their goal of developing a ministry network to address the complex process of providing assistance to trafficking victims. Skyway Railroad, inspired by the Underground Railroad, operates a call center that reaches out to women based on escort service ads, conducts outreach in strip clubs and bars, and also ventures into high-crime areas to distribute food, toiletries, and share the gospel. 

Mission Aviation Fellowship saw an increase in applicants during 2020 despite the challenges of a pandemic year, according to Mission Network News. The nonprofit facilitates flights for other ministries and organizations who provide services to hard-to-reach people groups around the world, including flying World Vision members to oversee clean-water projects for over 60,000 refugees living in Western Democratic Republic of the Congo. In total, MAF conducted almost 14,000 flights, and flew more than 35,000 passengers and 4.9 million pounds of cargo worldwide in 2020, according to a 2020 highlight video

The Guatemala branch of Baptist Medical & Dental Mission International (BMDMI) hosted its first team in over a year last month. Missionaries Michael and Sandra Little said there were a “few extra steps in preparation to leave and return due to COVID, but the ministry is worth it.” The evangelism team reported 18 new salvations while the team was there ministering, according to its Facebook page.
