How to Work With Missionaries (Audio)

By Dave Diaso, Jan 21, 2020

This seminar is from the MTW West Coast Equip missions training on the topic of "Launching Missions in Your Church." To listen to the full series of talks, visit our page on Soundcloud

Dave Diaso, MTW missionary to Mexico, shares from his experience as a missionary of over 25 years about the different ways churches and individuals can partner with missionaries to help fulfill the Great Commission together.

Missionaries deal with a lot of conflict, suffer discouragement when there is a lack of tangible fruit in their ministry, and sometimes even doubt their call. One of the key ways the church can come alongside missionaries is through prayer. “If we’re serious when we talk about sending and caring for missionaries,” Dave says, “prayer is the secret sauce.” We can pray for health, relationships among missionaries, spiritual encouragement, and God’s provision. Missionaries need tangible encouragement as well, whether that comes in the form of housing during home assignment, financial support, counseling, or personal communication.

Listen as Dave shares some of his personal experiences and encourages missions-minded churches in how to better pray for, encourage, and care for missionaries.
