Many people in your church are interested in missions. What should you do in the future for missions?  You can be informed. You can pray. You can give financially to support a missionary. You can go. ReachGlobal has some great ideas for now and for this summer.  Here are some ideas to consider.

  • 30 Days of Prayer for the Muslim World Ramadan this year is March 10 – April 8th. For a low cost, this booklet teaches you about the Muslim religion and how to pray for Muslims.
  • Crisis Response opportunities There are 3 US sites that will be open this summer: Lake Charles, LA, Fort Myers, FL, and Hazard, KY.  To find out more, Jessica will be glad to help you find an available location and a date to serve.  Different sites take different numbers of people.
  • APEX Missions APEX is the student missions program of the EFCA. For high school youth they have one-week opportunities, and they have three week and six week opportunities for college age students.  The deadline for serving on these sites is coming quickly.
  • GlobalFingerprints –  There are currently 5,700 children from around the world being sponsored through this EFCA program. GlobalFingerprints is now in 13 countries, many of which are closed or restricted countries in Asia. Each site is working with a local church pastor or church planter. You have the opportunity to make a difference in one child’s life by sponsoring him or her for just $39/month.
  • ReachGlobal UpdatesReachGlobal sends out monthly emails to a mission point person in each church. If you are not getting this free email update, please email connect@efca.org and ask to be added to the ReachGlobal Point Person email.
