From Our President
Introducing the new Prayerline . . .
Dear Friend in the Great Commison,
Change is in the air . . . and now in your hands.
April 1 marks a new day for Christian Aid Mission as we unveil our new look . . . a new Prayerline, a new logo, a new website, a new way of communicating with our friends – like you – who enable us to assist the indigenous ministries who diligently share the gospel of Christ around the world.
But our new look doesn’t change who Christian Aid is. Our threefold is, and always will be, the same:
- To share the love of Jesus Christ in lands of great poverty;
- To comfort and assist Christians where they are a persecuted minority;
- To plant churches among least-reached and unreached peoples (Matthew 24:14).
What we are doing is akin to changing clothes for different seasons: the winter coat and summer shorts may look different, but it’s still the same person inside. This is a new season for missions, and a new season for Christian Aid.
And this month’s issue of Prayerline is a perfect example of our new look . . .
As I explained in last month’s letter, Prayerline’s new look enables us to better focus on the indigenous ministries that desperately need our prayers. It’s a different look but the same heartfelt prayer requests from around the world.
And since we always want to be good stewards of that with which the Lord has entrusted us, I want to point out that this new version actually costs Christian Aid less to produce than before! That means less overhead, and more funds going directly to missionaries on the field.
Now, I know change is hard. It certainly is for me. We all get used to things as they are, thinking that the way we’ve always done something is the only way to do it. We often fail to see the possibilities before us that can be such a blessing if we simply take a step in faith. Christian Aid is now taking that step.
I’m excited about these changes. I’m excited that we can now better communicate with friends like you as we share the stories of our brothers and sisters overseas. I’m excited that by utilizing these changes, Christian Aid is able to do even more to help the indigenous ministries that labor in the harvest fields.
And I’m also excited that you are such a big part of bringing the light of Christ into the most spiritually dark places imaginable. Your support means so much to those who face persecution and poverty on a daily basis. They depend on our prayers and sacrificial offerings that enable them to share the one and only Truth with the lost and dying.
As Christian Aid moves ahead with its new look here in Prayerline and elsewhere, please remember that our goal of fulfilling the Great Commission remains the same. And until the day it is fulfilled – and our Lord returns in glory – rest assured that we will, Lord willing, remain steadfast in doing the work He commands.
Until all nations praise Him,
P.S. Christian Aid Mission remains dedicated to establishing a witness for our Lord Jesus Christ in every tribe and nation on Earth . . . from the far reaches of the Pacific basin to the great cities of India, through the “Cradle of Civilization” in the Middle East, across the vast plains of Africa, and to the cities and villages of Central and South America. Our new look, including this April issue of Prayerline, offers us a better way to communicate the stories of these dedicated servants of Christ. I pray that you and I will have many more years together lifting up native gospel workers before the throne of grace!
