There are many ways to be involved in world mission. For some, it means serving God by living and working among the peoples of East Asia, for others it’s being part of a support network back home.
Whether you go, stay and support or visit occasionally, it takes a team effort to pace a worker overseas. Your role in mission is vital.
For nearly 150 years OMF has helped UK churches send thousands of workers into purposeful cross-cultural ministry.
If you are passionate about reaching East Asia’s peoples, join with OMF to pray for, and support those sent into cross-cultural mission.
Prayer and Faith
OMF workers are committed to serving the Church in East Asia and bringing the gospel to East Asians worldwide, but those who go need others to pray – friends and churches committed to pursuing that goal with them, interceding together to see God’s church grow. If you believe God is calling you to become a prayer partner you can do so by clicking the button below. We’d encourage you to review and reconfirm your commitment each time your OMF worker returns to the UK on home assignment to visit family and supporters.
How it would work…
You will receive 10 prayer updates a year, helping you gain insight in to their life and ministry and pray in an informed way.
As part of their support team, your OMF worker will keep you updated to help you pray for their financial needs.
You will receive OMF’s Billions Magazine regularly free of charge. Billions contains stories of what God is doing in East Asia, resources that you can use to promote world mission and details of events to meet OMF workers and other prayer supporters.

‘I am not asking you just to give “help” in prayer as a sort of side line, but I am trying to roll the main responsibility of this prayer warfare on you. I want you to take the burden of these people upon your shoulders. I want you to wrestle with God for them.’
