Lord,  as we begin a new year, we begin knowing that you will go ahead of us into this year and prepare the way for us. We entrust to you this year, these requests and all that is unknown to us.  You are our hope and our salvation.  Please manifest your Presence and your infinite power to bring  hope and peace in this coming year. Lord, we would ask for your return, bringing your reign of righteousness. But if you tarry, give us grace and patience and perseverance to continue to pray for your people around the world. Hear our prayers, Lord. Amen.


If you ask me anything in my name, I will do it. John 14:14


South East Asia Field Partnership (SEA):

EASTER OFFERING FOR SOUTHEAST ASIA


Can we imagine what a difference a Bible, a bicycle, or a clean drink of water can make in the life of someone? This is the opportunity that we have been given through our Easter Offering for Southeast Asia on Sunday, April 4th. Lives can be changed at every level; spiritually, economically, and health-wise. It is certainly true that own lives are challenged today in the same ways. We all know what it means to face difficulty just in the common everyday aspects of life.


These three projects are all important to our work in Southeast Asia. With a $10,000 offering we can buy provide 200 Bibles, drill two wells and supply enough bicycles for a small village. 

BIKES FOR CAMBODIA

What if you wanted to learn but could not get to school? What if you wanted to work but could not get to your place of work? What if you wanted to connect and be discipled in your relationship with Christ but had no way to get to church? And what if even the simplest means of transportation cost more than 2 months of your income? Bicycles range from $50-$85, depending on whether the bike is needed for a child, youth, or an adult. This is more than many people make in 1 month or even several months.

By supplying bicycles to local villages and communities in Cambodia, we will not only be providing transportation to school, work, and church, but children and youth on bicycles are also far less susceptible to exploitation. Our churches have plans to offer training to families on how to responsibly care for their bikes so they will last for many years. This ministry also opens the door for our pastors and church members to regularly visit families, share the hope that we have in Jesus Christ, and disciple them as they come to know and follow Christ. Will you help provide a bicycle for a child, teenager, or adult in a local village in Cambodia? 

BIBLES FOR SOUTHEAST ASIA FIELD


A Bible is something we can easily take for granted, but it is not so in Southeast Asia. There are often only a few people in a church who own a Bible. They are treasured not only for their scarcity, but also because they are the best means a Christian has to fight against demonic worship and false religions. We know that Faith comes by the hearing of the Word. Both hard-copy and audio tools are vital to the growth of the church and forming Christ-like disciples. 

CLEAN WELL WATER


One of the most basic needs for humanity is clean water. Not only does it maintain and support good health, but it greatly simplifies that daily routine for people who don’t have to travel miles to find clean water. At the same time, a well becomes a gathering place for people, a meeting place for friends and families. Can you imagine a well in the front yard of a church? Water becomes a source of spiritual life for people! Community gardens can be planted, young gardeners can be trained, and bonds of friendship created. A well costs in the neighborhood of $2500 to drill. This is a once in a lifetime investment for a village and the local church. 

THANK YOU FOR YOUR FAITHFULNESS IN GIVING

As you prayerfully consider your participation in this Easter Offering for Southeast Asia please mark your contributions both online and in-person specifically for this cause. For questions or more information please contact our NMI President, Pastor Dave Fraley: pastordfraley@gmail.com
