We are now sending the second wave of exploration trips to potential new mission fields to discern where EFM and partner regions/yearly meetings will make decisions for launching new fields, based on EFM’s CAN GO Criteria. The next National EFM Luke 10 Think Tank convenes in November 2023 with plans to identify which fields EFM will make commitments towards launching. Ten teams have now explored ten different country/people group destinations on a first Luke 10 Exploration Trip. See more information here.
This next trip to Dubai and Doha is leaving today and taking place between October 19-31! The team of six people will include Rusty Savage (EFC-ER Director of Multiplication), Norbu Tamang (EFC-ER), DB Tamang (EFC- MAYM), Zach Bohler (EFC-ER), Amen Thapa (EFC-Nepal), and Prakash Thing (EFC-Nepal).
Trip leader Rusty Savage provided these insights into this upcoming second trip to Dubai, UAE and Doha, Qatar.
The team will spend six days in Dubai, UAE followed by six days in Doha, Qatar. In both places, we will be spending time amidst the large population of migrant workers who make up the overwhelming majority of the workforce in those cities.
Our team will be following up on contacts that were made on our first trip last year. Hundreds of thousands of Nepali-speaking men and women now live in the Persian Gulf. We will be spending time with this community, listening to their stories, and assessing opportunities for sending missionaries to this region from EFM, EFC-Nepal, or perhaps in partnership with one another.
|The following are ways that you can pray for this team while they are in Dubai and Doha.
The harvest is great, but the workers are few. So pray to the Lord who is in charge of the harvest; ask him to cast out more workers into his fields.
