We Are Just One Link in the Chain

By Staff, Feb 2, 2017

“I don’t know if I can do it. I’m not sure what to say,” the Japanese high school student said anxiously. The student had been a Christian for a while but had never shared the gospel with a large group before. The missionary discipling him had asked him to translate and help share the gospel at a Christmas outreach event for a local orphanage in Nagoya, Japan, and understood the young man’s nervousness.  

Together they discussed what to share and the best way to communicate the gospel. They finally decided to focus on the good news that God desires a relationship with us.

The presentation went well and the student gained confidence. But what struck the missionary most was the glimpse he got of multi-generational ministry. A pastor ministers to a missionary, the missionary disciples a student, the student shares the gospel with orphans. Missions is about learning to take our place as just one link in the chain and trust the Holy Spirit to work.

You are a vital part of the chain. Thank you for your generous support of global missions.

Pray for our single missionaries serving internationally in the midst of their unique struggles. 

Pray for missionaries to remain faithful in the mundane and not get caught up in striving to perform for the praise of others. 

Pray for missionaries who are doing valuable work yet have trouble raising support because their work or field is deemed less exciting or less important than other mission work by some in the church. 

Pray for missionaries raising support and for potential donors to grasp the eternal importance of supporting missions.

Pray for missionaries who are experiencing homesickness on the field.

Please pray for God’s protection over new missionaries and our MTW family as we engage in God’s kingdom work.

Pray for current missionaries, future missionaries, sending churches, and donors to be willing to ask the question, "How could God use me?"

Pray for missionaries on the field who struggle with loneliness.

Pray that the global church, including the PCA in the U.S., would make evangelism a priority, and share the truth with those around them. 

Pray that God would draw many PCA church members, pastors, students, and those passionate about global missions to the GMC conference in November.
