What Are You Doing This Summer? | EPCWO Mission Trips

EPC World Outreach is hosting three mission trips this summer for EPC members that want to learn how to love their Muslim neighbors and be the fragrance of Jesus. Our hope is that these experiences will equip participants to imitate thoughtful outreach among neighbors within their own contexts and cities for the sake of God’s glory and His Kingdom.

 

SUMMER MISSION JAM

Summer Mission Jam is an mission and equipping conference for High School students, serving among Afghan, Bangladeshi, Yemeni, Iraqi, and Pakistani peoples in America’s diverse neighborhoods of Hamtramck, MI and Sacramento, CA.

These two mission trips are unique opportunities for students to learn more about Muslims and how to interact in a way that loves our neighbors and honors our Savior. Learn more on our website.

The Power of Prayer | November 2019

Dear friends,

 
V was famous in his Pakistan community as a star cricket player … and for gambling. But as he became more and more involved with a new cricket club called Serve Pakistan that emphasized spiritual training as much as physical training, his life was transformed. Earlier this year V was approached by a family in the community, whose teenage daughter was demon possessed. They had exhausted all previous hope of healing for their daughter but pleaded for V’s help. V gathered some of his cricket club teammates to join him in days of prayer and fasting, then began to pray with the girl and her father. During this intense hour of prayer, the girl was delivered from evil through the power of Christ!

In 2014 A founded Serve Pakistan Cricket (SPC), which has now multiplied into 10 cricket clubs which meet regularly to play cricket, fellowship, pray, worship and receive mentoring. SPC bridges religious divides, teaches cricket skills, and transforms the lives of young men.

As the network of cricket clubs has grown, so has the need for a more permanent ministry center, where spiritual and physical training can be provided. The proposed ministry center/business, Serve Pakistan Farming Services (SPFS) will be able to provide ongoing, in-country financial support for Serve Pakistan Cricket, as well as offering potential to a wide range of community development programs for the village of Clarkabad and the surrounding area. IBAM (International Business as Missions – the arm of EPC World Outreach that works to use business as a means to share the gospel) is collaborating closely with A to make this dream a reality.
