Focus on International Missions

Yes, it is once again time for us to focus on international missions and the Lottie Moon Christmas Offering.  December 1-8 are the designated dates for us to join together to pray for God’s movement and the outpouring of His power around the world as missionaries work hard to share the gospel.

One of those places is India.  Part of the South Asia affinity, India has the 2nd highest population of any country in the world.  It has hundreds of people groups, almost all of which are considered unreached.  Several women there are working hard to reach women and disciple them into bold evangelist and church planters.

In this endeavor, one of the projects which your LMCO contributions will help is

“Looking for Lydia: Women Reaching Women.”   When Paul met Lydia in Acts 16, she was ready to respond to the gospel. She was the first believer in her city and established the first church. This project is for those like Lydia: women looking for truth and ready to lead.

Discipleship training equips South Asian women to be bold witnesses and disciple-makers, challenging them to know the Word of God, understand their identity in Christ, and realize his purpose for them. Your gift will underwrite the cost of discipleship training seminars offered throughout the country.

Training topics for believers and their non-believing neighbors include abuse, trauma healing, trafficking awareness, menstrual health, pregnancy, and business development. Women will be empowered to lead their local churches to better reflect God’s heart for those who are lost, impoverished, infirm, exploited, and oppressed. They will learn to minister to both practical and spiritual needs.

Local-missionary teams will travel to remote villages to offer these training events and seek more local believers ready to share the gospel along with social and physical health programs.

Women whose ministries bear fruit will be invited to bi-annual training and strategy-planning workshops. They will learn to lead healthy church multiplication throughout each of the seventy-five geographic districts and 175 people groups of this country.

The IMB has many such projects which your financial gifts will help become reality.  Take a look at other here:  https://www.imb.org/give/projects/

Focus on BSU

   I just wanted to take a moment and thank everyone for the warm welcome I have received from many of you as I have stepped into this new role. God has started to move in this past month and there are new opportunities to pursue to reach the students of Three Rivers College. I do need your help though as I look toward the next semester. I need churches for the Monday lunch. This is a simple way to serve students and show them the love of God. Please continue to pray for this ministry and about the possibility of serving by providing a meal. If you would like to help you can reach me through the office or at 660-654-9475 or by email at jamesrmohler@gmail.com.
