Our next mission team departs today. The following is a synopsis of the trip and a way to pray for the team.
We have a longterm partnership with the International Mission Board to reach this particular Unreached People Group (UPG) in North Africa. For security reasons, I cannot identify the People Group nor country on the internet; we ask that you don’t either.
On this particular trip, the leaders of the underground church will meet with our NEHBC team for a week in a neighboring “open” country. Our team will provide leadership training to their church leaders because churches rise and fall on leadership. Our team will teach their leaders bible storying to strengthen in-country disciple making. Our team will check on the status of the micro-loan projects including a chicken farm, a potato farm, and a taxi cab company. And Lord willing, our team will do direct evangelism in a town in the “open” country whose residents are mostly from the UPG in the “closed” country. Our team will return the weekend of January 14.
Here is a prayer you can pray for the team:
Lord Jesus, thank you for dying on the cross for this UPG. Thank you for the underground church and her leaders. Thank you for inviting NEHBC to join You in reaching this UPG with Your gospel. Please grant chemistry and unity between their leaders and our team. As our team members surrender themselves to You, please purify them and fill them with the Holy Spirit who will give them every good thing they need on this trip – wisdom, discernment, boldness, courage, endurance, love, grace, and forgiveness. Please dispatch angels from heaven to work powerfully with our team and to fight Satan’s forces who will have a constant and aggressive presence on the trip. In Your Name we pray, Amen.
