“How, then, can they call on the one they have not believed in? And how can they believe in the one of whom they have not heard? And how can they hear without someone preaching to them? And how can anyone preach unless they are sent? As it is written: “how beautiful are the feet of those who bring good news!” (Romans 10:14-15)

It seemed to become everybody’s cheer in this time of global pandemic.Regardless of race, religion or culture, the world is one in fighting the unseen enemy.This only goes to show that solidarity, unity, and hope could still come out from a tight corner.
God teaches in His Word that the human race is one, “From one man he made all the nations, that they should inhabit the whole earth.”While that is absolutely true, factors like gender, race, religion, culture and economic background also come to the picture like puzzle pieces that make up someone’s identity.
Although diversity somewhat divides people, God is not concerned about someone’s country or skin color. He loved and saved the whole world, “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life.” (John 3:16)
As His children, there is this special calling to understand other cultures and people groups, love others beyond their beliefs, and respect people despite the differences.
2. Pray for nations
Have you experienced waking up one day and thinking about the hungry people in Africa? How about those who are caught in armed conflicts in Afghanistan? Moving closer to home, have you ever thought of the most vulnerable families in the Philippines?
God promises that He hearsthose who pray and seek His face.He also said that Hewill forgive their sin and will heal their land(2 Chronicles 7:14). But who prays for those who can’t? Who will pray for those who doesn’t know God yet?
When God said in Ezekiel 22:30,“I looked for someone among them who would build up the wall and stand before me in the gap on behalf of the land so I would not have to destroy it, but I found no one,”it is clear that you are called to stand in that gap.
You are given the privilege to be the beacon of light to those who haven’t seen it yet by praying for the poor, persecuted, enslaved, vulnerable, hurting, and sick. Above all, pray for the unreachedamong nations, that they may also experience the glory and comfort of God.
3. Support missions
As a loving Father, God wants every nation to experience His grace and glory,“But I have raised you up for this very purpose, that I might show you my power and that my name might be proclaimed in all the earth.” (Exodus 9:16)
One way of actively proclaiming His name isby supporting the missions.
His entire life was dedicated to reaching out to people for Christ.
It all started when Joelchanced upon a film about missions that deeply touched his young heart. In the film, he saw how Christians were being persecuted and tested because of their faith.
“Even back then, all I wanted to do was serve God. I even prayed that if He will give me a chance to choose my death, I’d rather die serving in the ministry,” Joel shared.
Passion burned deeply in Joel’s heart.At the age of 13, he was already reaching out to people for Jesus.
“We should not be satisfied with being saved. We should also learn to give our lives to God and His Word so other people can be saved too.”
This calling brought him from the lowlands and even to the mountainous areas of Montalban –to boldly share the gospel to strangers.
Even after building a family, he and his wife, who also has a heart for missions, planted a church right in their own home.They shared the love of God with different people – especially the youth and people they met on the streets.
His passion grew even more as time went on.
His dreams of bringing the Word of God to unreached people groups continued to burn in his heart. So, to be fully geared in fulfilling his divine calling, Joel joined Asian Center for Missions (ACM)’s missionary training program.
“ACM has the best training. The subjects we tackled are really relevant and are what missionaries exactly needed,” Joel recalled.
The training greatly equipped Joel and even his family when they were called to serve God in Vietnam.
Later on, they were also able to use it when they went back to the Philippines to train aspiring missionaries.He also partnered with ACM and other organizations in missions’ mobilization.
Despite his enormous desire to be on the frontlines, Joel followed God’s leading to equip his fellow Filipinos. As God leads, Joel surrendered to His will. To him, being a Christian missionary isn’t all about pursuing a dream, but also, fully surrendering to God’s path.
Like Joel, do you have the heartto share God’s love with the unreached?
