Last month we held Missions Weekend and people had a chance to meet some of the missionaries and organizations we support. It was awesome to see so many people–adults and children alike!–who took the time to get to know these special people who have dedicated their lives to sharing the Good News of Jesus, serving others, and in some cases even saving lives as they minister to lost souls. Missions isn’t a weekend awareness for these people; it’s a way of life.
Today we dedicate intentional prayer time to lift them up as they work through the daily struggles and sacrifices of serving full time. There are so many real battles they face–financial support needs, spiritual warfare, connecting people with resources, housing, burnout, physical protection, and so much more. Let’s also praise God for their obedience to His call on their lives as they live out the example of Jesus in a radical way.
