As a missionary, this journey that I am on is completely faith-based. I realize more and more that we need community, we were never meant to stand and fight alone.
Realistically not every believer is able to cross cultural or geographical boundaries to bring good news. But every true believer can be involved in the process of sending those who can go. In Romans 10 we find two complementary roles: those who go; and those who send. Both roles are necessary to advance God’s purpose to be known, worshiped and obeyed by all nations.
1. Moral support.
Those who cross cultural, and geographical barriers for the cause of Christ need encouragement, a gracious word can strengthen the heart.
“Therefore encourage one another and build up one another”
1 Thessalonians 5:11
2. Prayer support.
The greatest thing you can do for those who go, is to faithfully pray for them.
- “God…gives the growth” (1 Corinthians 3:7)
- So fruitfulness depends on answered prayer (John 15:16)
- In answer to prayer, doors are opened (Colossians 4:3)
- Workers are sent (Matthew. 9:38)
- The Gospel spreads rapidly (2 Thessalonians 3:1)
Keep in touch with your missionaries. Read their prayer letters and share your news with them too.
“Like cold water to a weary soul, so is good news from a distant land”
4. Financial Support
By faith, missionaries look to God to provide for their personal and ministry needs. One veteran missionary says, “I don’t raise support; God lowers it.” Indeed, God does provide – through friends, family, churches and sometimes a stranger, who care for us and who believe in what we are doing.
