ABAD Quarterly Watch — Q3 2021

Updated: Mar 22

What is the value of a single soul to God?

This is the question asked by Hudson Taylor at a pulpit before a vast Christian assembly in Pert, Scotland on September of 1865. Hudson Taylor was a British Protestant Christian missionary to China and founder of the China Inland Mission. Taylor spent 51 years in China.

It’s impossible to appraise the eternal value of changed lives. Each one is invaluable and irreplaceable to God. Every single soul is precious in the eyes of God. The proclamation of the gospel is the responsibility of all followers of Jesus Christ. He commissioned us to go and make disciples to all nations. In John 20:21, Jesus says, “As the Father has sent me, so I am sending you.”

Changing Lives One Soul at a Time

Jeff is one of the missionaries ABAD supports in Thailand. He started his long-term missionary journey in 2015. He and his wife, Faith, have been serving in Thailand where it is not easy for them to just disappear into the background when they visit random homes and communities, especially during this pandemic season.

Update from India

The pandemic is still devastating India. Because of the lockdown, there is a shortage of food. Prabhat Rajan, our missionary from India, and his team focused on providing food packages and medicine during this difficult time. The church is still closed, and prices of food went up. ABAD continuously took part in their efforts to help some of the families affected.

Continuing Efforts

Danna is one of the new additions to the pool of missionaries that ABAD supports. Despite the limitations imposed by the pandemic, she and her team continue to reach out. Here is a report from Danna:

Time with Dr. Wehrman

Eben had a chance to see Dr. Wehrman again this past August. He is the missionary who shared the gospel with his family six decades ago. Although their meeting was short due to community restrictions, it was still a great opportunity for them to reconnect almost a year since they first met.

From the Philippines

Bishop Edwin Villagomez, founder of Coalition for Global Missions and Christ's Ambassador in Action (CAIA), has been ABAD's long-time friend and co-laborer in Christ in the Philippines. In July, Eben and Malou reconnected with the CAIA members while in California. They have known these men and women for over twenty five years, and all are still actively involved in reaching more people with the gospel.

Thank You!

Your faithful partnership makes our mission possible. We greatly appreciate you. We seek to support missionaries' efforts to reach all peoples with the truth of God's love.

Please stand with us in faith and prayer for the following:

  • For the complete recovery of Dr. Wehrman from surgery.

  • For the expansion of the GOMakeDisciples.Store.

  • For the growth and fruitfulness of A Buck A Day's missionaries as well as the protection of their health as they continue to serve their communities during the current pandemic.

  • That ABAD will have more individual and corporate partners so that more missionaries will be well supported.

"No higher honor could be imagined than to be an instrument in the hand of Jesus Christ, to be at his disposal for the furtherance of his purposes, to be available whenever wanted for his service." (John Stott, a 20th century theologian)
