Accurate reporting about the good things that God has done on the mission field is very important and for partners, it is very encouraging. Some partners GO. Some partners PRAY. Some partners GIVE. All partners share in the joy of the harvest.
Reporting on what GREAT THINGS the Lord does through the ministry of T.I.M.E. teams who serve at home and around the world is extremely important and very Biblical. In the book of Acts mission teams reported to the sponsoring church at Antioch:
"From Attalia they sailed back to Antioch, where they had been committed to the grace of God for the work they had now completed. On arriving there, they gathered the church together and reported all that God had done through them and how he had opened the door of faith to the Gentiles. And they stayed there a long time with the disciples." (14:26-28)
It is important to share with others the results of God's hand at work because doing the work of missions is about PARTNERSHIP.
Remember, some partners PRAY. Some partners GIVE. Some partners GO! ALL partners share in the joy of the harvest.
Each time a team returns from the field, at home or across the world, they report about the number of those who received the Lord, the number of people trained in mission evangelism and about new churches that were planted. They also share important HIGHLIGHTS of the mission endeavor. You can read those results by clicking on the WHERE WE GO tab, then select the specific trip that interests you. The staff of T.I.M.E. believes that MISSIONS IS ABOUT PARTNERSHIP and our partners are very important!
