3 billion people haven’t heard the Easter story. Will you give a gift of hope?

Who was it who first shared the Easter story with you? Maybe it was a family member or a friend. Perhaps it was a church leader or youth worker. Or maybe it was a loving stranger who invited you to a church service.

At Easter, I am so grateful for the people who shared the message of Jesus’ death and resurrection with me.

I’m here today because someone took time to help me see that I’m deeply loved by God, but that I was separated from Him because of my sin. They shared with me how Jesus, the Son of God, became a man and died on a cross so that I could be forgiven and freed. They told me about the resurrection hope of Easter, that Jesus rose again and that I can be with Him for eternity by putting my trust in Him.

But I’m also challenged by the question: how can I be the same kind of friend to those who have never heard about him?

There are three billion people around the world who have never had an opportunity to hear and respond to the Easter message. They don’t have Christian friends or family to share the gospel with them. Many of them have never met a Jesus-follower. Without your help, some of them never will.

This Easter, your financial support will enable OM workers to share the good news of Jesus with people who are yet to hear about the life and hope that is found only in Him.

In South East Asia for example, Esther* is sharing the lifegiving message of Easter with the women that she disciples. In Eastern Europe, Murat* has opened his shop to Muslims who want to explore what the Bible says about Jesus. Your support is helping OM workers all over the world to share Jesus in places where there is little or no gospel witness.

This Easter, will you help give more people the opportunity to hear the message of life in Jesus? Your gift today will help us raise, train and send out more OM workers among least-reached communities across the world. Someone gave us the opportunity to hear and respond to the gospel. This Easter, will you give that same gift of hope to people around the world who have never heard of Jesus?

We pray that you have a joy-filled Easter celebrating the risen Jesus. Thank you for your continued prayer and support for OM’s ministry.

Matthew Skirton, UK Cheif Executive, OM
