Nobody is an island. And so every mission trip is a form of teamwork. Not everyone can “go”, but has important tasks to do at home. Ideally, local missionaries also work for their own providing, as Paul had done.
Nevertheless, the support by local churches and friends is quite common and was also gratefully and humbly accepted by Paul.
After all, the friends from home want to have a share in what one of them experiences in the distance.
And so, generally, a circle of friends quickly forms, providing the urgently needed prayer support – because without prayer, nothing with eternity value happens.
That’s why the first request here is a call to join the praying friends.
