Next week, new OMers will be gathering in Mosbach, Germany, at the GO Conference for training and encouragement before they're sent out to the countries that they'll be serving in. We're praying for the new people as they learn more about serving in missions, connect with other OMers and get ready to start their new ministries. | Who's going to the GO Conference on the 14th? We're looking forward to meeting you!
The line of people waiting to receive a gift at the Festival of Smiles hosted by OM Costa Rica this winter for a Christmas outreach. The team traveled to the remote region of Talamanca to minister to the Cabécares and Bribri indigenous groups. Please pray for this region, which is plagued with poverty and rooted in witchcraft.
Weeping may last for the night, but joy comes in the morning. Today, pray with us for those who are waiting for the morning. | #sunrise #kosovo #light #pray #prayer #missions #ominternational | www.om.org
"'Let anyone who is thirsty come to me and drink. Whoever believes in me, as Scripture has said, rivers of living water will flow from within them.'" - John 7:37 | We are praying for the people of India, that they will come to know this living water. | www.om.org
In the West, we often have preconceived notions about the Middle East, but in truth, the Arab World is full of people who need to hear about Christ's healing power. And God is doing incredible things in this part of the world through dreams and visions, His Word, and Christians befriending Muslims. Please pray for the OM teams who are ministering to their neighbours in places like North Africa, the Arabian Peninsula, and the Near East.
OM likes people to use their gifts and passions in missions, whether that be sport, discipleship, or the arts. OM Ireland has a creative arts team that brings the truth of the Gospel to people all over southern Ireland. You could join us and share the love of Jesus in creative ways like drama, music, and puppets.
Missionaries often ask for prayer, but how do you know what to pray for? We can know the arts are important in ministry, but how does that actually work? And how can we pray for artists who are using their skills and passions in evangelism? This week's blog is all about praying for artists in missions. Find out more at www.blog.om.org.
