Happy New Year! As you may recall, our “100-50-2” Missions Launch happened at the beginning of 2018. Our intention was to set aside $100,000 to enable 50 labourers to advance the Navigator work overseas where they will reside for two months.
We ventured out in faith, and by the end of 2018, the Lord answered our prayer by sending 50 labourers into nine nations! These locations included Taiwan, Freetown, Sierra Leone; Ho Chi Minh, Vietnam; Yangon, Myanmar; Bangkok, Thailand; Bandung, Indonesia; New Delhi, India and Kuala Lumpur and Johor Bahru in neighbouring Malaysia. Since July 2018, a labourer was also called on the quiet to the Middle East as a student. When he returns in April, he will evaluate if he will finish his four-year tenure. We look forward to hearing from him then.
Because of the “100-50-2” Missions Launch, two labourers felt the Lord challenging them to return to the country they served in for six months, with another indicating a desire to return for a year. Additionally, there has been an encouraging number of decisions made for Christ in Vietnam. Hence, we hope to send more labourers there, for longer periods, to help establish these young converts. Finally, some labourers are praying for Japan and we sense their hearts for the nation growing.
In 2019, we are led to cry, “Do it again, Lord!” (see Habakkuk 3:2), as we trust God to raise more mid-term cross-cultural labourers. Will you pray with us for another 50 labourers to go forth? Thank you for faithfully standing alongside us in prayer and supporting the Navigator work in Singapore, Asia and beyond. May your new year be fruitful, abounding with God’s favour and truth.
