“Your windshield washer works fine now,” he says, smiling ear to ear. Please pray for Valerie, his new groups of believers, and the people in their communities whom they’re trying to reach for Jesus. Your support of Global Mission is making a positive difference in the lives of many Russian people.
Jeff Scoggins is the planning director for the Office of Adventist Mission at the Seventh-day Adventist Church world headquarters.
Global Mission pioneers plant churches in areas or among people groups where there’s no Adventist presence; are usually local people who already speak the language and understand the culture, enabling them to contextualize the gospel message for a lasting effect; receive a basic stipend, presenting an affordable way to do frontline mission work; and
share the good news of Jesus through wholistic ministry, including providing medical care, teaching agricultural skills, offering literacy programs, holding evangelistic meetings, and giving Bible studies. In the past five years, pioneers have supported 5,281 church planting projects in 104 countries. Their ministry wouldn’t be possible without your donations and prayers. Thank you! If you would like to support Global Mission, be assured that every dollar will go directly to the front lines of mission, reaching people who are still waiting to hear about Jesus.
