Sunday Highlight: October 17
Today in our prayer time we’re going to East Asia. We’ll call our missionary Liam. Liam was in this country to translate the Bible into the language of an unreached people group. Our church supports him and his wife, Nicole, through the Cooperative Program.
Ten years ago Liam went to a town in the mountains to study the language. That first day he met a man we’ll call L.T., who is part of the people group Liam was studying. L.T. helped Liam with his translation. The two became friends as Liam returned many times for language study. For 10 years Liam prayed, fasted, told L.T. about Jesus and reviewed the Bible with him — but no response.
Then, one day L.T. drove Liam and his family to the airport for a visit back to the United States. Liam said, “I will pray to Jesus for your safe travel.” Liam rushed on into the airport. Only later did he reflect on what L.T. had said: L.T. had accepted Christ as his Savior! L.T. has become a strong believer. Let’s pray today for Liam and Nicole, but also for L.T. as he grows in Christ.
Thank you for learning more about the ways your church’s gifts through the Cooperative Program are the financial fuel for reaching every person for Jesus Christ in every town, every city, every state, and every nation. Connect the offering plate to the mission field with “52 Sundays” resources.
