“Here am I! Send Me!”

20 Mar

Serving in Cyprus this Summer…

‘For everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved…

But how are they to call on him in whom they have not believed and how are they to believe in him of whom they have never heard? And how are they to hear without someone preaching? And how are they to preach unless they are sent? As it is written, “How beautiful are the feet of those who preach the good news!”’ Romans 10:13

15th June-7th July are the dates for the Cyprus Mission Team 2010…

Could God be calling you to serve Him in Cyprus this Summer?

A mission field with a massive vision needing your time and energy…will you serve the Kingdom and answer the call?

For a lot of you the thought of RP Missions seems like an American thing, not something easily accessible to the Irish RPs, this however isn’t true and as well as serving on GO Teams there are opportunities for you to serve God in this way during the Summer.

So what about Cyprus?

Cyprus is a Eurasian island country in the Eastern Mediterranean, south of Turkey and west of Syria and Lebanon. It is the third largest island in the Mediterranean Sea and one of its most popular tourist destinations. 78% of the population of Cyprus identify themselves as being Greek Orthodox and there are only a small amount of evangelical Christians on the island. However we believe the Lord is working in this part of the world and building His Kingdom and through the work of our denomination and other brothers and sisters in the Lord, God is calling people to Himself.

What can I do?

PRAY. GO. GIVE.

‘Then he said to his disciples, “The harvest is plentiful but the labourers are few, therefore pray earnestly to the Lord of the harvest to send out labourers into his harvest.”’ Matthew 9:37-38

PRAY-As Christians we believe in an Almighty God and so it is to our God, through grace, we bring our prayers and petitions. Most importantly the work in Cyprus needs to be steeped in prayer and if you are considering serving God here in the Summer pray that God would open up the opportunity for you to go and be leading and guiding you in this decision. Even if this mission team does not suit you be prayerful for the work in Cyprus, contact our missionaries there and be specific in your prayers. Believe that God answers our prayers if we are asking in His will and pray for the labourers that they would have boldness, courage and strength in the work.

GO– Be apart of the work in Cyprus this Summer! As a member of the team you will be involved in working alongside the RP witness there, serving amongst youth and teaching children. The work in Cyprus mostly includes encouraging the believers in Larnaca and spending time with the youth club, organizing a retreat for them and activities to get to know them better and build up relationships. You can have a massive impact on the young people here, we are so blessed to have the churches and teaching we have and this can be one of our greatest gifts as we serve. Working with a diverse group of believers gives you a real sense of what it means to sacrifice daily for the sake of the gospel. When we go out of our comfort zones and serve God far from home we grow and mature in our faith. Will you go?

GIVE– Consider the resources it takes to keep a mission station like Cyprus alive, what can you give if not time to pray or yourself in service?

Serving in Cyprus is not only challenging but very rewarding, lessons will be learnt that may never be learnt at home this Summer, not only this but it is a lot of fun too! Who doesn’t want to serve in a hot, sunny country where there are beautiful beaches, amazing food, mountain-top camps and some of the friendliest people you will ever meet?!

15th June-7th July…


PRAY. GO. GIVE.

‘And I heard the voice of the Lord saying, “Whom shall I send, and who will go for us?” Then I said, “HERE AM I! SEND ME.”’ Isaiah 6:8
