Imagine a world map. Now imagine a world map twice the size of a badminton court. Further, think of a map with the geographical area of the top 10 most persecuted countries in the world enlarged.
26 of our Navigator staff were amongst 250 Christian workers from 20 mission agencies, including YWAM, CRU, OM, OMF and Wycliffe who gathered at Faith Methodist Church for “Praying for the World”. Held on 25 September, this session was part of an annual gathering with Fellowship of Missional Organisations of Singapore (FOMOS).
Walking and praying on a map of this proportion was a truly invigorating experience. The session focused on praying for difficult to reach nations, with North Korea drawing the largest number of prayers. Someone prompted for a Korean to pray in their native tongue. That was when Chan Hye, our NUS Nav staff, stood up and prayed. It was a special moment.
As we all sang “The Task Unfinished”, I felt our hearts beating as one. This song was first produced by OMF International in a bid to raise 200 missionaries for East Asia back in 1929. It was certainly a joy and encouragement to fellowship with other like-minded, mission-oriented believers.
Thank you for blessing our hearts with your faithful support and prayers. Our labourers and staff have completed their month-long trips and have all returned. A couple of short-term trips are scheduled for December. Your giving has certainly enabled us to continually make known the gospel of Jesus Christ both here and beyond and to help others do the same.
