We cannot send enough missionaries to tell the whole world about Jesus.
Our missionaries, though, witness to people and disciple them so that more people will hear.
Let’s pray for two of our missionaries today — we’ll call them William and Nancy. They serve in Southeast Asia.
They have been discipling a man we’ll call Siet. Siet was an alcoholic. Once he got drunk and broke up his house. When he looked for help, friends told him about the gospel.
Siet quit drinking and accepted Christ. Soon he decided he should plant three new churches. But Siet did not take it seriously.
Then he was severely burned in an electrical accident at work. For two years he suffered skin grafts and other problems. But he survived and committed to being more faithful. Now he leads a Bible study attended by 10 baptized believers. William and Nancy still disciple him.
Our church helps support William and Nancy through the Cooperative Program. But do you see how they pass along the love of Christ to others and through them, still others? Missions is a great investment for our dollars!
Let’s pray for William and Nancy and for Siet.
