“And she will have a son, and you are to name Him Jesus, for He will save His people from their sins.” Matthew 1: 21
Over the past months of raising support partners, we have received several good questions about why we are going to Togo. This is a great question and one we always try and answer to the best of our abilities. As Christians, we are all called to “go into all the world”, not just part of it and not just some of us. There are windows of need to serve our neighbors and community, our state and nation, as well as needs to reach people abroad: Jerusalem, Judea, Samaria, and ends of the earth. We can all witness and bring others to Christ through three areas: praying for missionaries and lost people, financially supporting short and long-term missionaries, and going ourselves on mission trips with our churches or going on the mission field full-time. God gives each of us individual callings or passions to certain areas of missions and people groups.
During this Christmas season the phrase we all commonly hear, “Jesus is the reason for the season”, resonated with me more than it ever has in the past. We celebrate Jesus’ birth and first coming into this world because we have all heard the true story of Jesus, Joseph, and Mary. However, the Wachi people group in Togo, have never heard about Jesus’ first coming or the promise of His second coming. God has laid this people group and country upon Marci and I’s hearts and has called us to follow in obedience to Him and go to share about the first coming of Jesus, how He came to save them from their sins. With your partnership of prayers and financial support, we know we can quickly spread the Good News to this unreached people group, so that they too, may hear of Christ’s first and soon-approaching second coming. Thank you all for your prayers and financial support. We wish you all a very Merry Christmas and remember, Jesus is the Reason for the Season.
