Mission Service Projects:

Each month WOM and the small groups give to service mission projects such as:
Pray for Missionaries Passage: 1 Corinthians 13:1-3, focus verse 3
If I speak in the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I am a noisy gong or a clanging cymbal. And if I have prophetic powers, and understand all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have all faith, so as to remove mountains, but have not love, I am nothing. If I give away all I have, and if I deliver up my body to be burned, but have not love, I gain nothing.

People often gauge success on a person’s education, job title, or salary.  However, Paul, the writer of 1 Corinthians, said a successful life is not measured in these ways.  Without love, every action is empty.

Paul began by appealing to education and the desire for knowledge. He mentioned speaking known or unknown languages, having knowledge about the deep things of God, and speaking elegantly if all those things are done without love, they mean nothing. He even went so far as to say that having “a faith that can move mountains” is not enough if you do not have love (v.2).  Merely being a good person, sacrificing and giving to others without love as our motivation, is empty and useless.  

Success cannot be found in knowing more, doing more, or having more.  True success is found in loving God and others well. Is love evident in every part of your life? Pray God will guide you as you demonstrate love to others daily. Pray God would help missionaries demonstrate genuine love to the people they encounter.

Prayer Focus: Sub-Saharan African Peoples: Pray for West African believers who are spread out and alone, desperately desiring fellowship with other Christians.  In many areas of West Africa, this is exactly what you will find, but God can use these scattered believers.  Pray they would be bold witnesses in their communities and that the Lord would bless their boldness with fruit.

The goal is over 1000 in attendance from all over Taiwan. Pray for the Holy Spirit to move mightily; for unity, for true spiritual revival (not just emotional). Taiwan Baptist missionaries (IMB) will be there to assist and serve. CBC annual convention near NTU, following the revival worship.  Pray for the Holy Spirit to move mightily; for unity, for true spiritual revival. Pray for increasing connections with our national coworkers. I hope to have a Hakka table once again.  Hakka EV conference and outreach in KuChing, Malaysia. Praise/continue praying: 2 missionaries and their coworkers have stepped into the NTUS sports university ministry. They have already met some faculty, staff, and students. We will get together in September and prayer walk the campus. They have a house church, so it will be very natural to “take students (home) with them. Please continue to pray that the work on this campus will expand with new blood. I am elated, relieved, and so grateful.

Thank you for your amazing faithful mission ministry.  Many people are blessed by your generosity.

Missions Through WMU and WOM

The mission of God is a thread woven throughout the Bible from Genesis to Revelation. God makes it clear His desire is for all people to know Him and follow Him. The Bible helps us understand God’s mission and know how Christians are to be involved in His mission.
God issued the mandate for us to be involved in missions through the Great Commission. Our choice is how to be involved.  WMU and WOM offers many opportunities for giving and hands-on service missions projects.  

Lottie Moon Christmas Offering

Starting in 1888, the Lottie Moon Christmas Offering® was established to empower the international missions’ efforts for Southern Baptists.  Your giving enables missionaries to be sent to make disciples and multiply churches among unreached peoples and places for the glory of God.

Annie Armstrong Easter Offering

Changes lives forever by empowering North American missionaries to bring the gospel to the lost. With over 269 million lost people, North America and its major cities are some of the most spiritually dark places in the world. Join us on the mission to equip every missionary and reach every lost person in the United States and Canada.

Mary Hill Davis Offering

Your giving enables Texas Baptists to minister across Texas sending missionaries and provide opportunities for people to hear the Gospel, find hope in Christ, and sustain WMU of Texas’ ministry efforts.  Your gifts bring hope to a battered woman and her family. Your giving provides medicine for a sick child at a free medical clinic. A child’s life is changed because your generosity enables them to go to summer camp.
