2018 End of Year Update

End of Year

Wow, God is so very, very, good! We simply had to take a moment to give glory to our King for 2018 and also share how grateful we are for your prayers and support this year! God has used you in powerful ways this year to challenge, mobilize, and unite people, churches, and organizations across the world that bring life-saving resources and the Gospel of Jesus Christ far and wide!

When God and His people swing into action, it changes everything! YOU and your love and faith-in-action have made this possible. Lori and I and our team are so very grateful for you and your care, prayers, and support! Thank you!

3 Quick Highlights from 2018:

  • Scores of passionate volunteers at emergency food packing events for war-torn children that involved more than 20 churches in 3 states in the spring!
  • 13 churches uniting together to GO to Africa to deliver this food and bring and build a huge playground as well as The Good News of Jesus to the war-torn children of South Sudan in the summer!
  • 2 trips to Lebanon this year with members from 6 churches, experiencing an incredible movement of God among the huge numbers of war-torn Syrian children and their families with large numbers that are embracing Christ and joining Discovery Bible Studies/house-churches.

A Clear Vision and Kingdom-Assignment for 2019: 

We feel more assured than ever that we are to be a catalyst ministry that inspires, encourages, and mobilizes people, churches, and organizations to unite and put their faith into action for the lost, last, and least.  As a special focus for 2019, our hearts are strongly compelled to join God and fan the flames of His historic movement of new believers and Discovery Bible Studies/house-church planting in the Near East, Middle East, and Africa. Also to enthusiastically fuel hope, joy, and The Gospel for war-torn children in these same regions, an incredibly exciting opportunity!

4 of the FaithQuest 2019 Events/Trips Already Planned:

  • FaithQuest Ragnar Relay Teams of Athletes/Champions are forming now for our April 12-13 200 mile non-stop relay run, championing an even bigger response of emergency food and The Gospel for war-torn children…#SoreFeetSoKidsCanEat!
  • Lebanon Vision Trip, with Iraq or Egypt extension in May, for leaders and influencers to come and see, learn, and gain vision for joining God and the incredibly inspiring movement He is doing in this region right now! 
  • South Sudan/Northern Uganda Impact Trip in August, with exciting outreach to the war-torn South Sudanese children as well as potentially reaching out to 3 Unreached, Unengaged,People Groups (UUPG’s) that FaithQuest has committed to at this months Finishing The Task leaders gathering.
  • Lebanon Impact Trip in October, an opportunity for people and their churches and organizations to put faith into action and join God and His wonderful harvest that is happening amongst the war-torn Syrians there, joining the zealous and brave Lebanese churches leading the way!           

It is incredibly exciting to see God at work in such huge ways all over the Near East, Middle East, and Africa in the midst of the conflicts happening in these regions! With literally millions of children and their families displaced from their homes, the needs (and awesome opportunities to serve!) are immense, and amongst this God is doing a GREAT work! You’re invited! Let’s join together and join Him!

The Needs Are Sure Big

But our God and the opportunity for huge impact is even bigger!  We can’t do it alone -we need each and every one of you as much as ever before! We need you and are unabashedly asking for you to keep standing with us and prayerfully consider growing your involvement with us at this time. We are all stronger and better together, at our best when we unite with passion and faith and fearlessly join God in what He is doing, wherever and however that might be!

Massive thanks again to all of you who have prayed, volunteered, traveled, run, cycled, and given of yourselves and your treasure in so many ways, without which this ministry would not be possible. We love you and pray our King will fill you with faith, hope, love, and courage to boldly press on with even bigger faith in 2019!

Together for our King Jesus and the lost, last, and least of the world,

Johno & Lori Gash
