The political peace under Rome was breaking down. Tensions were rising. Within a generation, the Jewish temple would be destroyed and many Jews dispersed.
Yet when Christ looked out on that world, he didn’t just see the coming hardships. He also saw ripe fields ready for reaping. Souls to be saved. Peoples prepared for the gospel.
Today, despite the tumultuous circumstances unfolding at every moment, we remain in a season of harvest. The gospel is going forth. The Great Commission is being accomplished. And the Lord of the harvest is still sending laborers.
Since autumn 2021, we’ve seen 84 new workers added to the ABWE global workforce. Their stories of calling and consecration to ministry are linked below.
Many of our workers are serving in contexts that pose a security risk to them or their partners in ministry. Some identities have been withheld for their safety and effective witness.
Join us in praising God for sending more laborers into the harvest, even in the face of global hardships—and pray for these faithful workers to bear fruit in their work for the Lord.
