On behalf of all the cross-cultural missionaries, church planters, campus missionaries, and administrative staff of Every Nation World Missions, we would like to wish you a Happy Christmas and a Joyous New Year!
As we celebrate the birthday of Jesus Christ, we remember the millions of people across Asia and the rest of the world who do not have a relationship with Him. Thanks in great part to your support, many brave men and women are now working on the missions field to bring the gospel to them.
Two weeks ago, more than 150 missionaries, senior pastors, and local leaders came together for Every Nation’s first IndoChina conference. With leaders from churches in Cambodia, Laos, Myanmar, Thailand, and Vietnam, the conference offered our ministry leaders the chance to meet and hear reports of what God is doing in these nations. It also offered them welcome opportunities to see why we are, as a movement, better together.
To fully achieve the conference objective of improving church health, delegates were refreshed on a variety of topics, including discipleship, empowering leadership, missional alignment, creating inspiring worship services, functional structures, finances, and pastor’s key relationships. Please stand with us in faith that God will bless our efforts together in 2017, for the sake of the gospel.
Also, in 2016, we made inroads into Bhutan, Georgia, and Jordan, sending church planting teams to scout the land and begin engaging the locals. This 2017, we are in the thick of plans for the next set of countries in Asia that do not have an Every Nation church. More about these nations in the coming newsletters.
Once again, we thank you for your faithful support of our ministry. May God continue to bless you and your families with good health and provision, heading into 2017. Merry Christmas and a happy new year!
