Missionary Spotlight ~ Andrew Day

Today is a big day for my brother Andrew. Early this morning he started his journey to England to serve with George Verwer and Operation Mobilization

From Andrew's newsletter:

"It was also at Moody that God brought George Verwer and the ministry of Operation Mobilization in my path. 

George Verwer is the founder and former director of Operation Mobilization (OM) an international mission agency that works in 118 countries. 

Mr. Verwer is a prolific author and a popular speaker around the world. He challenges people with the great need for missions and raises awareness and funds for global needs. 

Last year Mr. Verwer spoke around 300 times to diverse audiences of all ages. 

I’m excited to let you know that this August I will be starting a year long ministry as George Verwer’s personal assistant (aka. Go-fer). I will be traveling with him everywhere he goes and assisting him with anything he needs. 

When we are not traveling and speaking at a conference or some sort of event. I will be helping him out of his home office outside of London England. The job description of a gofer is anything, anytime, anywhere."

If you would like to receive Andrew's newsletters you can email me or Andrew and we'll add you to the list.

Every OM missionary has to raise their own support to cover ministry expenses. Andrew's trusting the Lord to bring in team members to be an important part of the ministry both through prayer support and financial support. He realizes that without God's strength and the support of God's people he would not be able to go have a part in reaching the world with the gospel. So he values the sacrifices his supporters are making on his behalf.

If you pray about it and feel like this is something God wants you to be a part of you can email Andrew at awd.day (at) gmail (dot) com. 

Sunday night's commissioning service to send Andrew off with prayer.
