Project: Encourage is going well. The Chino Valley, Arizona group continues to meet monthly. They are praying for over 20 missionaries from around the world from organizations like WorldVenture, International Friendships, etc.
They are reporting how much the missionaries are moved by these prayers. While responses from missionaries are nice (a treat, in fact), it is not a requirement as they know how busy missionaries are in the field. The whole purpose is not for personal gratification, but edification. This is not to sound overly-spiritual or purposely pious.
The group has grown to love this monthly meeting. It’s not only a chance to catch up on each others lives, but also to participate in world missions from our living room.
The group was begun through their church’s small group program.
