CARING FOR OUR MISSIONARIES
“How beautiful on the mountains are the feet of those who bring good news”
Isaiah 52:7a (NIV)
Ask them how you can best care for them.
Typically, two or three quick texts or emails a week are much better than one long email each month. These can be a quick prayer or a quick hello. Consistent little gestures of care and love tend to be much better than one rare, big one.
Respond to their newsletters
It’s tremendously encouraging. Your response doesn’t have to be long, just respond.
Check with the missionary or church to be sure your communication doesn’t endanger missionaries working in countries actively opposed to Christianity.
Pray with and encourage them
Pray for their strength, for their affections and for fearless love for those they’re ministering to. Pray for God to move mightily. If you’re among their closest community, give them the opportunity to join your group in grace-filled confession and repentance and then Spirit-filled worship. Encourage them in the Word. Remind them of God’s faithfulness.
