I read dozens of missionary prayer letters every month and this one by my colleagues Barbara and Gary Bauman really impressed me.
Why? While many are mentioning the Japanese word and Chinese characters for crisis (see picture below), and how it means both danger and opportunity, I was particularly impressed with how Barbara and Gary are seeing this flesh out in their own life and ministry.
The Baumans reported on some recent ministry activity that I hope we can share in the future. It’s an exciting story of how the Gospel is being manifest before those they are reaching out to in their sphere of influence.
Barbara and Gary have this crisis idea down! As they shared:
“Times of danger bring increased opportunities to share God’s love!”
You’ll see their prayer requests listed here, and I’d like you to pray for them as well as all of us at Asian Access. These are crucial days for the Gospel and God is doing something special. I’ve seen it in this story from Gary and Barbara and also in several other reports I’ve been reading.
Do pray… It’s times like this that multiply opportunities to share God’s love!
