HeartCry Missionary Society, founded by Paul Washer, is an organization that exists "to glorify God through the establishment of biblical churches by equipping and mobilizing indigenous churches and missionaries in the least evangelized areas of the world." HeartCry works in foreign countries to support indigenous missionaries in their missions and churches abroad.
The International Mission Board (IMB) is an entity of the Southern Baptist Convention. It exists with the mission of fulfilling the Great Commission in Matthew 28:18-20 by "evangelizing, discipling and planting reproducing churches among all peoples." Under current president David Platt, the IMB works to send men and women to every people, tribe, and nation that they may know and worship our Lord Jesus Christ.
To Every Tribe is a mission agency that exists to extend the worship of Christ among all peoples by mobilizing the church, training disciple-makers, and sending missionary teams to plant churches among the unreached.
In the summer of 2014, two of our members, Marwan and Marci, made plans to move to the Middle East permanently as missionaries. They sold all their possessions, packed up, and arrived in Dubai, UAE. There, Marwan has participated in training to minster in that geographical context with Redeemer Church of Dubai.
By God's grace, they have planted a church in Lebanon where Marwan now serves as Lead Pastor! Please pray God would continue to build His church in Lebanon and that He would raise up laborers to send out into the harvest.
