When missionaries Jeremiah and Joy Farmer were forced to leave the East Asian country where they served, Jeremiah began to think about creative ways to work with local partners from a distance. One way was setting up trainings and meetings to equip and mobilize believers to make disciples.
One such meeting happened on a boat dock where Jeremiah witnessed deep partnerships forge among believers. They were open and honest in a way he had not seen before. Not only were the East Asian leaders working through their differences, but they were also able to make concrete ministry plans together.
THE COOPERATIVE PROGRAM is the financial fuel for reaching every person for Jesus Christ in every town, every city, every state, and every nation. Your support through the Cooperative Program allows missionaries like the Farmers to encourage and embolden local believers to share the Gospel in their respective countries, especially those where missionaries aren’t able to serve.
PRAY that partnerships between East Asian Christian leaders will deepen and that they will be willing to work together and be unified in their ministry strategies for the furtherance of the Gospel.
