Missions

Encouraging our missionaries is a good thing. Hebrews 10:25 says, “Let us encourage one another—and all the more as you see the day approaching.” Those who are serving the cause of Christ in distant places and sometimes difficult conditions need to hear from us and know that we are praying for them. Consider sending a note or email to one of your missionaries to build them up in their faith and encourage them in their walk with Christ.
