An update on Global Interaction’s appeal
We are now well into the 100 People 100 Days appeal and I have been encouraged by the number of new supporters that are partnering with Global Interaction for the first time.
With a good number of South Australian families that are keen to be serving the Khmer people of Cambodia and the Yawo people of Malawi, they now need our understanding (learning about their journey and encouraging them), our prayers, and our financial support.
The nine different people groups that Global Interaction go and serve are classed as ‘least-reached’. By definition, this means that there is less than one percent of people in their own tribe or people group that know or understand who Jesus is. For many people groups with cultural barriers, they may never have the opportunity to hear about Jesus in a way that makes sense to them, if at all.
So, the 100 People 100 Days appeal is an opportunity for you to partner with families who feel that God is calling them to go and build relationships with these least-reached people groups. They are answering God and choosing to go. They understand the cultures and way of life of these people groups. As they build relationships they can then share who Jesus is so that these communities can be empowered to develop their own distinctive ways of following Jesus as their Lord and Saviour. It is literally life-changing work that is not easy and not fast but in God’s strength, is an important part of God’s work to reach out in love to the entire world.
So, if you would like to partner with one of our candidates, it’s not too late. Go to globalinteraction.org.au/100 or contact the state office on (08) 8357 1755 to explore what partnership would look like for you. If you would like for one of our families to come and share their story or share a bit about these least-reached people groups, then we can arrange for them to come and speak at your church, in your small group or at a mid-week activity.
Churches can access a range of resources to help promote the 100 People 100 Days campaign to their congregation. Please click here.
Please pray that God will build up the right team to partner with our candidates as they prepare to do His work.
