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!
Recently, we sent a media team to the Philippines to film and photograph how OM is helping relief efforts. This photo from Tacloban, one of the areas hit hardest by the typhoon, really touched us. God, You are sovereign, and You bring hope in hopeless situations.
"Does it not stir up our hearts, to go forth and help them, does it not make us long to leave our luxury, our exceeding abundant light, and go to them that sit in darkness?" - Amy Carmichael | #missions #middleeast #sunset #backpacking #ominternational | www.om.org
Kids really are the same no matter what country or culture you visit. And playing with water balloons is fun no matter if you're in Nepal, France, or a Syrian refugee camp in the Near East. An OM short-term team had a lot of fun with these refugee kids, all while displaying the love of the Father. #Syrian #middleeast #refugee #ominternational #omintheworld #kids #travel #missions
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.
"During the dance, I will use my body to draw the cross to show that I am a dance warrior with Him. I can fight because Jesus fights with me; He fights for me," says dancer Sarah from Taiwan.

"Who has measured the waters in the hollow of his hand, or with the breadth of his hand marked off the heavens? Who has held the dust of the earth in a basket, or weighed the mountains on the scales and the hills in a balance? Who can fathom the Spirit of the Lord, or instruct the Lord as his counselor?" - Isaiah 40:12-13 Photo credit to Garrett | #Italy #bibleverse #missions #ominternational #aroundtheworld #omarts #Isaiah #mountains
