There is an inexplicable sense of being called that has been described by missionaries in this simple way: “You know that you know!” They may not know what they are to do but they know they are to “Go!”
Have you been a witness for Jesus in your own community?
Jesus told His disciples that they were to be His witnesses first in Jerusalem, in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth. Serving locally is an important first step in your journey to working overseas or in Canada.
Are you willing to lay aside your ambitions and trust God with your future? Have you counted the cost of following Jesus?
Are you willing to trust God to provide for all your needs, as Jesus describes in Matthew 6: 25-33?
Are you willing to trust God to provide for all your needs, as Jesus ibes in Matthew 6: 25-33?
Are you willing to put others first? Are you willing to do “nothing out of selfish ambition or conceit” but in humility regard others as better than yourself? Are you willing to look not only to your interests but to the interests of others? Are you willing to live out Philippians 2: 3-8?
Are you willing to go wherever the Lord calls you to go, to do whatever He calls you to do and to say whatever He asks you to say?
If you can answer “Yes!” to each of these questions, then we would like to hear from you!
Individuals can serve with MECO Canada in Canada or in the Middle East.
There are a number of opportunities – long-term and short-term – to serve Churches as they seek to connect with their neighbours from the Middle East. There are also opportunities to serve in ministry to Syrian refugees who have come to Canada.
In the Middle East:
There are numerous opportunities to help churches and ministries carry out their work. You can serve on a long-term or short-term basis.
To quote Jesus: “The harvest is plentiful but the workers are few. Just as it was true in His day, it is true in ours. We need people to join us in serving churches and ministries as they reach out to Middle East people. If you sense God calling you to serve in this way, you can be sure He has work for you to do that will be unique to you.
Those who serve with us are dependent on the Lord for the financial resources they need to carry out the work they are called to do. The Lord provides through their churches, family, friends and even strangers who feel led to give so others may serve.
