But our citizenship is in heaven, and from it, we await a Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ, who will transform our lowly body to be like his glorious body, by the power that enables him even to subject all things to himself.

Philippians 3:20-21, ESV

About

Hi! My name is Devon, and I’m just a pilgrim longing for the Day of the revealing of the sons of God and the redemption of our bodies. Meanwhile, I’m privileged to serve in the Middle East with Frontier Alliance International and regularly contribute to their article library at FAI Publishing andTHE WIRE news service.

“Oranopolitan” serves as the main repository of my work.

I hope that these books, articles, and podcasts are useful and encouraging to you. 

All the best!

The Ultimate Conquest

Written as a companion piece to FAI’s seventh film (THE FRONTIER), The Ultimate Conquest is an intimate look at these pioneers’ lives and a gripping exploration of the privilege and the cost of laboring on the remaining fields of unreached and unengaged people groups. It brings to life the incredible story of Hudson Taylor and the China Inland Mission concerning its impact on the Frontier Alliance International family. Apart from Scripture, no single individual has played a more influential role in forming the vision and values of FAI than Taylor and the China Inland Mission.

Frontier Alliance International invites you into the heart of China to encounter one of the greatest visionary pioneers in history; what convictions drove Hudson Taylor, what values shaped his own family and organization, and how we can glean from the legacies and strategies of those who’ve gone before us as we carry this great and holy task in our own generation—the proclamation of the Gospel of the Kingdom in every tribe, tongue, people, and nation.

Wonder, Witness, and War

As the world grapples with escalating crises and humanitarian needs on scales unseen since the Second World War, the Body of Jesus worldwide must evaluate how we responsibly steward and bear the name of the “Servant of all”—we must ask how we can engage strategically and faithfully, to best serve as “light” and “salt” to a dark and dying world—so that the Lord of all would be known to every tribe, every tongue, and every people group. Unprecedented crisis has created unprecedented opportunities.

In this compilation of essays by FAI Relief field personnel, Wonder, Witness, and War explores the responsibility upon believers, our opportunities to engage the crises, and the unique fellowship found with Jesus on the blood-stained soil of the frontier. 

The harvest is plentiful. The laborers are few. And the doors are open. There are no closed countries.
