As International Mission Board personnel who are eligible for the organization’s voluntary retirement incentive prayerfully consider God’s leading, Woman’s Missionary Union leaders are calling for more intense prayer and support for Southern Baptist missionaries.
“Ongoing, focused prayer for our missionaries has always been a foundational component of missions discipleship through WMU,” said Wanda S. Lee, executive director of national WMU. “It is both a privilege and responsibility to lift up our missionaries in prayer, and so vital right now as they are making potentially life-changing decisions.”
National WMU will host a special time of prayer for international missionaries during an observance of the Week of Prayer for International Missions at WMU’s headquarters in Birmingham, Ala., Dec. 3.
In addition to prayer, WMU is seeking to help missionaries who decide to return to the U.S. with housing and transportation.
