Middle East Partnership

Oak Park partners with Liz Hershey, a missionary in serving with the IMB in the Middle East. Liz is an IMB Journeyman, who was sent out by Oak Park in September 2017. She is serving amongst an unreached Muslim people group, located across the North Africa-Middle East region.  She is part of an IMB team working together to reach the lost, disciple those who believe and raise up leaders for indigenous churches. 

 

Some ways to pray for Liz:

1. That God would use her and her team to reach unsaved Muslims

2. That Liz would be able to make friendships that open doors for gospel conversations

3. That God would prevent the enemy from causing disaffection or disruption amongst the team

4. That she would find great joy in serving the cause of Christ for the sake of the gospel and for the glory of God

5. That she would be an encouragement to her teammates and an inspiration to her home church 

 

East Asia Partnership

Brian and Andrea and their family have served in East Asia for 10 years among a very un-evangelized people.  Among the 46 million within their target area they are about 0.1% Christian (~46,000 believers) and about a dozen UPGs (unreached people groups and (unreached unengaged people groups) UUPGs.  Their family serves as the leader of a foreign missionary team and as well as with local national believers to make healthy disciples and plant healthy churches in their province.  

 

Some ways to pray for Brian and Andrea:

1. That God would bring a harvest from their labors

2. That Brian and Andrea would continue to love the people group they are seeking to reach and would be unashamed to tell them about Christ

3. That God would bind up the enemy from causing disruption and/or dissatisfaction in Brian and Andrea’s family

4. That Brian and Andrea’s children would see the value of this ministry and be drawn closer to Christ for themselves

5. That others would be moved to pursue a missional lifestyle as they pray for Brian and Andrea
