Be a Part of Someone’s Story: Volunteer at MCNW!

Mission ConneXion Northwest 2018 seems like forever away, seven months will fly by before we know it!

As we look toward January, we are expecting a potential record number of attendees, and our Steering Team is already putting volunteer teams into place. Some positions require training in advance, and some can be easily summarized a few days before the event, but all of them require willing hands and hearts.

Since the plenary sessions and workshops are available for free following the conference, we are hoping that mission-minded people would be wiling to make the sacrifice and serve as needed.

Mission ConneXion: Part of Their Story (Swanson)

Dear Mission ConneXion ,

Our journey of being called started when we attended Mission ConneXion Northwest. That week, my wife Gina told me that she felt like we were supposed to go be missionaries and that she had just seen on Facebook that Mission ConneXion Northwest was happening that weekend in Portland.

An abridged article from our friends at SEND
Written by Josie Oldenburg

As the summer travel season creeps up, perhaps you plan to use your hard-earned vacation days to visit a missionary….I’m sure you want to be — and will be! — a delightful houseguest. Here are some tips that hopefully will help you deliver encouragement (not embarrassment) and joy during your stay (not joy once you’ve gone).

Why You Need This App!

By Bill MacLeod, Executive Director

If you’ve ever been in a setting where a country is mentioned and you wondered where you could turn to learn more about not only its location, people, or culture, but also about its spiritual condition, chances are you may have turned to Operation World (OW) – the “definitive volume of prayer information about the world”.

Seven editions of OW have been published. The original edition was produced in 1964, from South Africa, and was only 32 pages of basic information about 30 countries. Today’s most recent version is from 2010, which is a complete update of the 21st century edition, released in 2001.  It is a large, bulky encyclopedic volume, but now…

Operation World has its own App!

By simply typing Operation Worldin the App Store on your smart phone, you can now easily hold the free version of this world changing resource in your hand!  I recently downloaded it and found it easy to navigate to:

  • An Alphabetical Listing of all 196 Countries (and 7 Continents) in the world today – including Taiwan which many do not consider a country – that also shows when clicked on, a map of where the country is located on the globe.
  • Under “Status”, data is provided on a country’s population; total People groups, total languages, largest religion, the per cent of largest religion; the percent of the population that is Christian; the percent of evangelicals, and what the percentage is of those living in cities, called “Urbanites”.
  • Each country’s national flag is shown – all in color.
  • Under “More”, additional insightful facts are provided for the savvy believer who desires to see the gospel infiltrate every corner and people group of our globe.
  • Under “Prayer”, there is a brief synopsis for each country of how it can be prayed for…and you can see, on specific dates, how many people were praying for any country using the OW app!

Out of curiosity, I looked up a few of the “hotspots” that are often in the news, to see just how many people were praying, on that date, for these countries.  Here are some of the results I found:

Afghanistan: 24 people praying on Feb. 9th…Iraq: 4 on July 17…Iran: 2 on July 14…Somalia: 4 on Oct. 29…Syria: 4 on Nov. 14…United Kingdom: 10 on Dec 4…United States: 10 on Dec 7…France: 121 (!!!) on May 24

Ignatius of Antioch, an early Christian Bishop, is attributed with the saying: “Pray as if everything depends on God, work as if everything depends on you.” Hopefully, this Operation World App will help you to do both!

 

How To Pray for Missionaries

Pray for Open Doors (Colossains 4:2-3)

Pray that God will open doors of ministry, blessing partnerships and friendships.
Pray that those who serve will be led by the Holy Spirit and recognize open-door opportunities.
Pray that God will lead His people past barriers to hearts ready to receive his Word.

Mountainside Prayers: Change Their Story

Written by Meaghan Hartman

Mountains have stories. They overlook cities and towns; they see war, destruction and reconstruction.  Some testify to huge cataclysmic events — a volcanic eruption or a flood halted by the mountain’s base. Mountains create natural borders for nations and peoples; they cause disruption in travelling, expansion and exploring.  For centuries, mountains have seen it all. They have stories to tell.
