World Missions Sunday, Feb. 23
CONWAY, Ark.—Of the estimated 7.2 billion people on the earth today, over 2.5 billion of them have never heard of Jesus. An astounding fact considering that technology has allowed us to connect millions of people with just one keystroke.
How will we fulfill the command to reach those people, almost a third of the world's population? On World Missions Sunday, churches will emphasize the need to support our missionaries through prayer and giving. Prayer is a powerful thing; that's why missionaries always ask us to do that first. And, of course, giving is certainly a critical part of supporting our BMA missionaries around the world. Plan to join us for World Missions Sunday on Feb. 23.
Go to bmamissions.org/worldmissions for more information about this day of praying and giving. Paul urged the Ephesians to "... be alert and always keep on praying for all the Lord's people." Will you pray
for those 2.5 billion people and the missionaries who will tell them about Jesus?
