• Our hope-filled future is bound up in sharing the story of Jesus, in discipling others, in bringing those disciples together into communities of believers, and in developing and releasing those believers to create other communities... till Jesus the King comes again!

Mission11 Asia Update[2]

This is in some ways a “live” post. I am writing it while listening to a time where some of our workers from Asia are sharing “stories about mobilization”. 

WT Asia has created a mobilization team whose desire is to pray and work towards seeing more workers engaged in ministries in Asia.  Jim started the time by reading a post from this blog back in Dec 2009. The words of that post had challenged him to recognize his need, and everyone’s need, to be involved in encouraging others to consider God’s work cross culturally.

Trevor then challenged us to have a desire to see “mobilization multiplication”.  I loved that phrase as it underscored how we long to see everything we do multiplied so that others will engage in God’s work around the world.

Tim works to journey with people as they begin their adventure in cross cultural ministry: the vital role of mentoring.  Seann works to engage these new workers in ministry: listening well and releasing those new workers into cross cultural ministry with freedom to innovate and realistic expectations.

Interspersed between each one of these times of sharing were times of prayer for the mobilization of new workers.

An interesting twist to this time was when Amy interviewed a group of the kids from the Asia team.  Listening to them made you recognize how vital is their perspective to cross
cultural life and work, and their unique and incredible insights and gifts.

This session was a great encouragement to see how WT Asia is responding to the ‘crisis opportunity’ in mobilization (see TATJ post of Sept 2009).
