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 GO Challenge in South Africa has just started. Pray with us for the participants in the four-day conference and week-long outreach, that they would be blessed and grow in their faith. And also pray for the locals in Mamelodi who will be served - pray that their lives would be transformed by the Gospel.
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
Students from the Challenge Into Missions (CiM) course visited a Moldovan village earlier this month, where they ministered to the people there, including this elderly woman. | CiM is a 10-week training programme organised by OM Moldova and run twice a year for both Moldovan and international participants, involving Bible study, mission skills and character development, and practice reaching out to the community.
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.
"'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
Missions can completely change the way we see the world - and each other. Seeing a new culture and living in it opens our eyes to what God is doing in other parts of the world and different cultures. And it's also fun! Come with us and watch God expand your worldview.
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.
