Donate. Encourage. Advocate.
—Verdell Goulding, Director of Mobilization
The ministry of OMF International aims to address this spiritual inequality, that we know how to enter into a relationship with God while many East Asians are still waiting to hear about Christ. This obviously requires people to “go” into long-term missions. But every goer needs a team of “senders.”
- Jesus had this. We’re told in Luke 8 the names of three of “many other” women who were supporting Jesus and His disciples out of personal means.
- Jesus’ disciples had this. Following His instruction, they found people to support their ministry by providing for their physical needs. (Luke 10:5–7)
- The Apostle Paul had this. He relied on the financial support of Macedonian Christians to enable him to minister to the Corinthians. (Acts 18:5)
Serving as a “sender” involves more options than giving financially. You can provide moral support by being a regular encourager, logistical support by helping meet other practical needs and advocacy support by telling others about the missionary’s ministry and needs.
