Behind the Scenes
May-August 2022 Volume 122 , No . 2
¡ Cambios Hay !
I spent several years serving as a missionary in Spanish-speaking countries . During that time , I often heard the phrase “ Cambios hay ,” which basically translates , “ Change happens !”
People used this similarly to the
French phrase “ C ’ est la vie ,” usually when they were tempted to cry , shout in frustration , or even throw their hands up in defeat . I have found that adopting a cambios hay attitude works best for surviving circumstance shifts . First , I acknowledge that change is part of life , then I decide to embrace it , enjoy it , and sometimes even look forward to it !
In my nearly 19 years with One Mission Society ( OMS ), I have experienced God ’ s faithfulness through several changes . This issue of OMS Outreach highlights a few global transitions . One of the biggest updates is the passing of the presidential baton from our current OMS President , Bob Fetherlin , to our President-elect , Jeff Edwards . On July 1 , Jeff begins his role as the 11 th OMS President in our 121-year history ! That is pretty remarkable .
I look forward to seeing how God will continue using Jeff and OMS to multiply disciples around the world .
