After two weeks traveling around America, connecting with vision partners, inviting people to join our Monthly Prayer and Financial Support Team, I have returned to Asia, blessed and inspired.

I’m happy to be home with my wife and daughter. Two weeks is a long time away from them. Next month, all three of us will be traveling together to China to host two visiting short term teams.

The last two weeks have been a very meaningful time for me. Meeting with individuals face to face has been rich with personal connections that I am excited about cultivating in the months to come.

I am so blessed by all of you who are standing behind us, holding the ropes and lowering us down into the goldmine of souls in Southeast Asia.

From the underground Church in China and all our missionaries at Within Reach Global, we want to say a great big THANK YOU for your prayers and generosity!

I want to tell you that this trip has truly changed me. I have been reading The God Ask by Steve Shadrach, and have been realizing more and more that I am not fundraising for Within Reach Global as much as I am friend raising. Meeting you, hearing your hearts, struggles, victories, joys, and sorrows has been humbling. I am honored that in the midst of everything you are going through, you continue to bless us and the unreached peoples we are reaching through your generous hearts.

I want to commit to making you a priority, that is, creating a true team. We’re not just looking for a monthly check. We covet your prayers and personal connection. We’ll be creating opportunities for you to write letters to orphans, hear the underground Church praying specifically for you, and we will be emailing, texting, and calling you personally, updating you how your giving is impacting actual lives.

For those of you who have joined the Within Reach Global Monthly Prayer and Financial Support Team, this is going to be a real team! We’re together in this!

If you’ve been praying about joining the Within Reach Global Monthly Prayer and Financial Support Team, all the options for giving are located in our donate page or on the buttons below.

Thanks for being such a blessing by helping us bring the gospel to the least reached peoples of Southeast Asia! Blessings!
