One of our missionary families was invited to dinner at the home of a 76-year-old devout Muslim man who had become a friend. On that night, the Muslim man was invited to read Jesus’ conversation with Nicodemus (John 3). This was the first time he had ever read the Bible or heard the words of Jesus. In fact, before meeting our missionaries this man had never met a Christian. From that moment, he began to exhibit an increased spiritual openness. Our desire for Giving Tuesday is to see moments like this multiplied thousands of times around the world.

With 7,000 unreached ethnic groups in the world, most people have never had a life-changing encounter with Jesus Christ. They will remain lost unless someone crosses cultures to reach them with the gospel. There are over one million communities—many in new and expanding cities—without one local church.

By faith, we are believing that during this Christmas season, God will help us lay a foundation to launch 20 new teams in unreached cities around the world.

But that depends on what happens starting with Giving Tuesday. Everyone knows about Black Friday, the big shopping day after Thanksgiving. And eclipsing it now in sales is Cyber Monday, the Monday following. How about stepping back from all of the marketing and finding some balance with giving to the kingdom of God on Giving Tuesday, November 29?

Global Partners (GP) gives global focus to the mission of The Wesleyan Church. GP is launching a global project on Giving Tuesday that will continue through Christmas and reflect the real reason for the season. Make it a day dedicated to reaching thousands of people with the hope of Jesus Christ.

Global partners is dedicated to reaching the “here, near, far, and hard” places in the world. And Global Partners is you, if you partner with us.
