Ways You Can Help

“For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith – this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God – not by works, so that no one can boast.
For we are God’s handiwork,
created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do”

– Ephesians 2:8-10 –

You may not be called to go to Thailand, but you can help.

God has prepared ways for you to expand His Kingdom & bring the light of Christ at home,
around the world, and here in Thailand:

  1. Work within your network (your sphere of influence): This includes your personal realm, and your collective realm (your extended circle). Ask God to lead you. Then, obey.

    Personal Realm:
    ● Individually – You!!
    ● Your household (family)
    ● Inviting a friend to help

    Collective Realm:
    ● Your prayer group or spiritual band meeting
    ● Other small groups or clubs
    ● Sunday School class
    ● Mission Committee & Administrative Council
    ● CSR (Corporate Social Responsibility) within your business

“God isn’t looking for people of great faith, but for individuals ready to follow Him.”
– Hudson Taylor

  1. PRAY (Individually, during family devotions, and within small groups)

    ● Pray for lost individuals and people groups; especially remember those within the 10/40 Window
    ● Pray for children, and all who are vulnerable
    ● Pray for soul-winners, harvesters, to be sent out, and fruitful
    ● Pray for the Word of God – preached, received, glorified
    ● Pray for revival – personally, within your church, globally
    ● Pray for church-planting pastors – to go forth in the power of the Holy Spirit; pray they may have wisdom, courage, fortitude, and provisions
    ● Pray for new believers, especially in nations in which Christianity is a minority – that they will be discipled anf persevere; that they will be faithful and blessed as they share the Good News of Jesus with family, friends, and neighbors

“In our lifetime, wouldn’t it be sad if we spent more time washing dishes or swatting flies or mowing the yard or watching television than praying for world missions?” – Dave Davidson

  1. SERVE

    ● Serve with mission-focused members and groups within your church; (provide servant leadership)
    ● Serve cross-culturally at home – go beyond your ‘regular’ social, economic, racial, or ‘part-of-town’ group
    ● Serve as a missions intern; if called, serve vocationally

“The mark of a great church is not its seating capacity, but its sending capacity”
– Mike Stachura

  1. GIVE

    ● Give regularly to mission endeavors that are fruitful (for example: pray and discern a ministry you will support; if you do online banking, include a recurring donation to provide regular missional support)
    ● Give sacrificially, and invite / challenge others to join you (for example: “for 1 year we’ll buy no new clothes, or tech upgrades, etc.” – then, collect what you saved, and send)
    ● Give to organizations that provide accountable oversight (good stewardship of funds)

“You can give without loving. But you cannot love without giving.”
– Amy Carmichael, missionary to India

“And Jesus came up and spoke to them, saying,
‘All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth.
Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations,
baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son
and the Holy Spirit,
teaching them to observe all that I commanded you;
and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.’”

– Matthew 28:18-20
