Day 5: Get Involved In World Missions

Jake Potter, author

Romans 10:13-15

 13 For “everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.” 14 How then will they call on him in whom they have not believed? And how are they to believe in him of whom they have never heard? And how are they to hear without someone preaching? 15 And how are they to preach unless they are sent?

Reflect

With much having been said this week about world missions, I would like to end this week with an invitation. All of us can be involved in world missions in one way or another. As the above verses indicate, how can someone believe if there hasn’t been someone to share Christ with them? And how can people share Christ with the world if they are not first sent out? Just as the verses above indicate that there are preachers who are sent, there are also those who do the sending. Of course, you can sign up to go on one of the trips, but you may also feel called to come alongside and partner with the trips and serve as a sender even if you don’t physically go on the trips.

If you cannot go on a mission trip, you can partner with the trips in two ways: First, these trips need people to partner with them in prayer. Missions is the battleground of spiritual warfare, and these missions teams will need people praying for them as well as the people they are going to share Christ with. If missions is a car, then prayer is the fuel.

Secondly, you can partner with the trips financially. Because God has called, he will provide. And one of the ways that God provides is through the partnership of fellow believers. Our church is going on these mission trips because we believe that God will be at work in the hearts of the people we will be ministering to, preparing the way for the Gospel to be proclaimed through all the earth. But in order to see that happen, there are tangible, financial needs that need to be met for the trips to happen.

Regardless of your involvement in the trips, I would invite you to check out the link below and pray about how God may be calling you to get involved! When you click the link, you can see each of our 10 mission trips, along with all of the details on the trips.

Mission Trip Highlights

In this section, we will be highlighting our mission trips. There will be a mission trip meeting to hear about all our trips on November 15. We’re also including a link for you to go and read more about each trip and pray about whether or not you feel God calling you to participate in one of the trips.

SRI LANKA – August 5-12, 2021: https://cfhome.focusmissions.com/!#/18809/sri-lanka-medical-outreach

Using Medicine to Plant Churches – This trip is open to all adults. Medical training is a huge plus, but not necessary, as we will train all trip participants here to train the nationals over there. We will partner with “Teach To Train” (TTT) an outreach of East-West Ministries to equip the countries experienced church planters and evangelists to do basic medical care and to use TTT’s medical backpacks. These medical backpacks give them access to unreached Muslim villages that we could never get access to as Americans, and because our trainees are Christians, they cannot get access to without this medical equipment. Once in the unreached villages, they will evangelize and plant churches.

BANGLADESH – September 11-18, 2021: https://cfhome.focusmissions.com/!#/18810/bangladesh-medical-church-planting-evangelism
