For “everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.” How then will they call on Him in Whom they have not believed? And how are they to believe in Him of Whom they have never heard? And how are they to hear without someone preaching? And how are they to preach unless they are sent? As it is written, “How beautiful are the feet of those who preach the good news!” -Romans 10:13-15
Some of the best stories about God’s goodness come from missionaries. His faithfulness, provision and kindness shine brightly through their lives as they boldly take the Gospel to the ends of the earth. For our family, it’s quite an honor to support missions work — whether through prayer, donations, time, talent or all of the above.
Here are some missions organizations that are near and dear to our hearts because they are taking the Gospel to the ends of the earth.
Project One Eight (global) | Steve and Sharon Anderson
Based on the words of Jesus as recorded in Acts 1:8, Project One Eight goes to the ends of the earth — including Ethiopia, Brazil, Mongolia, Zambia and Russia — to teach and train pastors and church leaders who have little or no access to theological training. This ministry partners with like-minded friends who are committed to praying and using their resources to advance the Gospel to the ends of the earth.
