Testimonies from the field | South-East Asia & South Africa
Prayer for World Outreach’s field personnel is vital! Especially during COVID-19.
We have received these beautiful encouragements from our faithful frontline workers in South-East Asia and South Africa. We pray they may encourage you too! If you would like to partner with us, please see below for how to give to our COVID-19 Appeal.
”My highlight last year was to be able to give food to an entire village of 160 families for one month in one of the villages where we have been working for 7 years. With financial help from WOI, we organised with the village leader and gave out food.
The villagers were so happy with the small church there because we gave to everyone regardless of religion, ethnicity or political preference. The village leader asked the local pastor of the church there for an audio Bible and he started to ask questions about Christianity. This village leader eventually accepted Jesus and he is in the process to know God more.“
“A dear new single mom joined the team. She shared how she reaches out to Unreached groups in the prisons. One day, she found a man preaching the gospel with half a torn Bible. His story astounded her. He got to know the Lord in prison and could only find half a Bible in a dustbin. He then used that Bible to lead others to Christ!
I was so taken aback… He leads people to Christ with half a Bible – what am I doing with my full Bible?! (She has since arranged to get a new Bible to him in his own language and is reaching out to many more in prison.) The workers in this region keep inspiring us. Some plant and harvest (with young believers) and do leadership training. Others keep going despite horrific health problems. Some travel away from their families for long times to share the Good News. Others go back into areas where there was war to go find the Unreached Peoples again.”
Praise the Lord for the amazing work happening all over the world!
We pray you will be encouraged by these stories! Will you join us in praying for those facing trials around the globe?
Would you partner with us in ministering to those in need throughout this global crisis?
Please consider giving to the COVID-19 Assistance Appeal to help reach more people in need!
Our missionaries need funds to help people within the communities they are endeavouring to reach. These funds will be used to purchase food, medicines and other basic necessities to help people struggling to get by.
