We Cannot Stop

February 2017

Dear Friend in the Harvest,

Thank you for praying for a massive move of God among unreached tribes in every nation to hasten the day of our Lord’s return.

Thank you for giving your treasure to see God’s kingdom powerfully advance among people still walking in darkness, particularly in areas of war, conflict, hostility, persecution and poverty.

We cannot stop praying.

We cannot stop helping native missionaries finish the task in our generation.

And the Lord cannot stop seeking and saving the lost—until there is a witness for His name in all nations.

We join His mission. We want to do what He is doing.

We pray people living in darkness will see the light of the Lord shining with power and deliverance, bringing hope to the hopeless and breaking oppressive strongholds of idolatry, witchcraft and radical militant activity.

God is faithful.

We pray for unity among believers from all nations—that Christians in every nation together would declare the gospel of peace to those in despair.

With God, all things are possible.

And we pray for the fulfillment of God’s purposes and plans among all peoples.

We agree with His unstoppable mission to have a people for His name from among all nations.

Will you join us?

"We Cannot Stop"

I cannot stop thinking about the striking testimony Slavik Radchuk shared in our recent Chapel meeting.

Native missionaries—desperate for training and empowerment—traveled five hours on motorbikes through five-foot snowbanks in 30-plus-below temperatures to meet with Slavik. They fervently sought training, direction, prayer and edification from this seasoned, faithful, life-long evangelist.

Their attitude was simple and pure:

“If you don’t help us, we cannot stop. If you do help us, we can do more.”

This commitment and sacrifice for the gospel speaks of how the Holy Spirit compels his people to finish the task of the Great Commission. With or without help, and despite the cost, they cannot stop speaking the name of our Lord Jesus Christ. I think of the Apostles Peter and John in Acts 4:20: “For we cannot but speak the things which we have seen and heard.”

If native missionaries carry the unstoppable Word of God to the frozen ends of the earth—is not the same Spirit of God working in us to support them?

Are we not also compelled by the love of Christ?

Unceasing Opportunity

Today we witness the unprecedented opportunity to pray and provide for native missionary workers who are clinging to Christ in the darkest places and bringing His life to desperate, imprisoned souls.

The Lord cannot stop moving His Life and glory from tribe to tribe, nation to nation, people group to hidden people group. He is on the move until a people from every nation exalts His name.

He is not willing that any should perish. “The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance” (2 Peter 3:9).

Will you pray and support frontline missionaries who can’t stop because the Lord’s hand is upon them for the sake of the world and for His glory?

Who can stop the Lord Almighty?

He is unstoppable in gathering His harvest. And you share in the harvest when you co-labor with Christian Aid and those we support. As the Scriptures say, the measure you give will return to you with abundance—“good measure, pressed down, and shaken together, and running over” (Luke 6:33).

Until there is a witness for Christ in every nation,
