We live in a busy, fast-paced world. Time is filled with meetings, travel, budgets, family, and community. It seems 2015 was just yesterday and now March 2016 is here. It is not difficult to get caught up in our daily lives and lose track of the people around us. It is easy to never look up and see the needs of the world that surrounds us. It’s easy to never experience or connect with any sort of mission work.
Through God’s grace, we enjoy each moment granted us. We cherish fellowship with colleagues. We love our family and we care for our community. God creates the time in our lives to be in connection with people. So that together, we can recognize the potential for work in the mission field.
Organizations like Educational Opportunities (EO) Tours continue to help make mission work possible. EO’s mission department serves church ministries through discounted airfare, which increases the number of mission workers and the amount of money available for mission support.
EO’s mission department has sent over 60,000 local church members to over 153 countries around the world. As a result, pastors help the people of Kenya and mission groups respond to war-torn disasters in Guatemala and fight for justice in Ethiopia. Mission workers feed the hungry and shelter the sick. Through God’s loving grace we can look up and watch our seeds of hope grow into a spiritual tomorrow. Together we transform the world.
