(4) How You Can Get Involved

 

Be a Gospel “Sender”

Missions requires two types of people: goers and senders. We have felt the Lord calling us to go, and we need others like you to partner with us and send us. Specifically, we are prayerfully seeking out those who would partner with us in this ministry by supporting us financially and by praying for us.

 

How to Partner Financially

If you would like to participate in this gospel work in Japan by giving financially, you can make a tax-deductible contribution online to Mission to the World (MTW) here.

You can also mail a check (with “Matt & Caroline Newkirk [#15454]” in the memo) to: Mission to the World, P.O. Box 2589, Suwanee, GA 30024-0982

 

One-Time Gifts vs. Ongoing Gifts

Every financial gift given toward this ministry is needed, useful, and very appreciated. However, commitments to give ongoing financial support are what will enable us to get to the field and stay there. We ask you to prayerfully consider (1) whether this ministry might be something that the Lord is calling you to participate in, and if so, (2) whether you can participate by giving on an ongoing basis.

Either way, whether your involvement is one-time or ongoing, we thank you for investing in the kingdom of Jesus through the gospel work in Japan. We echo Paul’s words as he thanked the Corinthians for their financial gifts:

“This service that you perform is not only supplying the needs of God’s people but is also overflowing in many expressions of thanks to God. Because of the service by which you have proved yourselves, men will praise God for the obedience that accompanies your confession of the gospel of Christ, and for your generosity in sharing with them and with everyone else” (2 Cor. 9:12-13).

How to Partner Through Prayer

In addition to financial support, we also need prayer partners to pray for us and for the kingdom of Jesus to expand throughout Japan. Satan will do all he can to prevent the gospel from spreading, so the prayers of God’s people are absolutely critical for its success. Just as Paul thanked the Corinthian church for their financial contributions, so did he ask the Ephesians to pray for him and his missionary service:

“Pray also for me, that whenever I open my mouth, words may be given me so that I will fearlessly make known the mystery of the gospel, for which I am an ambassador in chains. Pray that I may declare it fearlessly, as I should” (Eph. 6:19-20).
