“That said, overseas missions would be impossible without the committed, consistent support of well-informed people and churches back at home. Here are six alternative ways to support missionaries and take part in God’s mission to the world.” Jennifer Su McIntyre gives “6 Ways You Can Support Missionaries” here: https://www.thegospelcoalition.org/article/ways-you-can-support-missionaries/
It’s good to know when someone has our back or is standing with us. No soldier wants to go into battle alone, and none of us likes to stand up and be the lone voice in a meeting. There’s great encouragement when someone is standing with us. We all need encouragers in our lives. In turn, we can strengthen our relationships when we offer the same support and encouragement to others.
