Missions Prayer Focus: Asia-Pacific

By IET Communications

Most of the world’s population lives in Asia—a huge area with many languages, ethnicities, and religions. Our Asia Pacific Leadership Team is prayerfully taking steps of faith to send teams to work among Asia’s unreached.
 
For the next three months, we ask you to partner with The Navigators in Asia by praying fervently for God to establish pioneering teams in three specific regions: Thailand, Northern India, and Pakistan.
 
In Thailand, most Christians are of Chinese or tribal descent. The ethnic Thai, who are usually Buddhists, are almost untouched by the Gospel. So in recent years, Navigator pioneers have made several exploratory forays into those regions where they live. These pioneers plan to start a student ministry in Bangkok. In the coming months, the Asia Pacific Leadership Team will hold a campus ministry conference in Thailand. They will spend time in focused prayer and trust that God will use the conference to call additional Asian laborers to join the Thailand team.
 
Northern India is home to approximately 600 million people, of whom 120 million are Muslim. God has been moving the hearts of Navigators in Asia to open this needy region. The Asia Pacific Team has made several trips which have helped them learn how and where to minister. Please ask God to raise up a pioneering team leader. Also pray that God would work powerfully to prepare the way for the Gospel.
 
Finally, pray for Pakistan, a nation that continues to suffer with strife. Navigators in Asia are asking God to open doors for a Gospel movement there.
