Ask, Seek, Knock
“Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives; the one who seeks finds; and to the one who knocks, the door will be opened.”
As a sending church, we currently support an international staff of 71 workers in 25 nations including Australia. Help us continue this vital work as we “ask, seek knock” across the nations.
Two of our international workers, Scott, and Sarah Morrison, live in northeast region of Thailand, working amongst the Isan people. They have some inspirational stories to share.
Each year we set apart 20% of our missions appeal offering for another third-party missional organisation. This year we are partnering with Praxeis and their project in Kiriwina, Papua New Guinea as they bring in much needed medical supplies and expertise, and plant the word of God in the hearts of these people.
Opening the way
Scott and Sarah Morrison, with their three young children, have been living in north-eastern Thailand for the last five years. They are reaching out to the Isan people, an unreached people group of about 21 million with only 0.18% Christians.
"Being known around town helps to kick start conversations and open the door for people to speak about spiritual things and share their struggles.”
Here to bless the neighbourhood
Scott was prayer walking in a new village with a teammate when they passed four men drinking whisky outside their house. The men invited them to try fried red ants, which they discovered tasted good. One of the men asked Scott what brought them here, so Scott replied that they were here to bless the neighbourhood.
Better in community
Earlier this year while prayer walking, Scott and his teammate came across two older women. The ladies invited them to visit as they wove fabrics to sell in the village. One of them had bad eyesight, and the other, Mae Dom, had arthritic fingers that kept locking up so she couldn’t do much of the work. Scott and his teammate prayed for them.
“She's there, praying for the sick, praying for the blind, praying for the deaf and sharing her story of what God has done in her life.”
Our appeal target is $300,000.
Our international workers live in some of the toughest environments in the world for the sake of the gospel. They do it willingly. So, with a target of $300,000 may we have a generous spirit as we resource our 71 workers across 25 nations. They so appreciate your generosity as you partner with them through this appeal.
