This past month we added five new Ministry Partners! This is always a big decision. We start off by praying, looking at how God is using and growing our ministry, and asking for wisdom to make sure a ministry is a good fit.
As part of the application process we look at:
Do we have time to commit to them and continue to care for our current Ministry Partners?
Does their experience and reputation show they have what it takes?
Is their ministry truly having an impact on people for the good of Christ?
OurCupATea is a family effort ministering in Asia. Their desire is to connect with people daily, meet their physical needs and share the good news of Christ with them.
