Gospel witness can start with buying someone a cup of coffee, or by helping someone thousands of miles away get a cup of coffee. In the fall of 2018, students at Grace College in Indiana were able to make a tangible difference in a coffee operation in Southeast Asia, without even leaving campus.
Most countries do not lay out a red carpet for the gospel. “For the word of the cross is folly to those who are perishing…” 1 Corinthians 1:18. Encompass workers must enter these places creatively. Christians can't enter creative access countries on a religious visa or openly proclaim the gospel there. It’s dangerous, illegal or both. To make disciples in these places, you need to create relational bridges.
This booming Southeast Asian city has seen allot of change in its 1,000-year history. Recent urban development has changed the city skyline as many are moving here to study or find work. With its Buddhist and secular influences many are far from Christ and have never heard the life-changing story of Jesus. The Encompass team is being invited to work among educators and business leaders in the city. Serving in partnership with the Encompass team you’ll have the opportunity to be the hands, feet, and voice of Jesus to the least reached.
