Outreach Testimony

"Nicole and I met this girl, and we ended up going out to dinner with her. After we talked about what we have done while we’ve been in the Middle East, she wondered how Nicole and I became friends. From there, it was like the Holy Spirit directed the conversation! She began asking question after question about how and why Jesus died, what is the Holy Spirit and how does it operate, as well as asking about how we can hear God when we pray! She was super hungry to hear about Jesus. At the end of the conversation she said the craziest thing, and I say this because we never used this vernacular but she said, “it’s so inspiring how devoted you both are and how effortless it is for you both to spread the good news of Jesus.” Like what! We also got to pray for her and have very meaningful conversation about her family and other things. She was amazing and I cannot wait to see what the Lord does in her life!!" - Rio Sierra, Middle East 2021


Prayer Requests

  • For this community in the Mountains to remain hungry for the Word of God and grow in numbers.
  • That Jesus would be made known in South East Asia. That the body of believers would grow stronger in unity. 
  • For the Babors to find rest and an enriched time with family and friends while visiting Stateside


If you want to hear more stories like this, come out to THIS Monday’s "Mission Monday" where Paul and Marcy Babor will be sharing in person about what God is doing in South East Asia!

Missionary Spotlight!

Paul and Marcy Babor and their four children live in South East Asia where they do ministry in multiple countries. Their heart is evangelism and discipleship to bring forth a church multiplication movement among the unreached. One story they shared shows a glimpse into the inspiring faith and obedience they live out.

We drove to a far mountain village where a small family who had recently received Jesus as Savior had invited us to come and share with their whole community. We drove until there was no longer a road then we got out and walked. 109 families gathered to hear the message. Everyone leaned in to listen and eagerly received the Word. After the message, they prayed a declaration to follow Jesus and live for Him, then we prayed for individuals with sickness or pain. Many were healed instantly and a whole group just stood in the presence of God crying because of His goodness. We shared bags of rice with the families and ate our lunch there in the jungle. The 5 believers who had brought us there wanted to be baptized so we went to a nearby spring. As we gathered together I started talking to an older woman who was there watching her grandchildren swim. I learned that she was an employee of the princess of Saudi Arabia and she was so hungry and thirsty for God! She witnessed the baptisms and gave her life to Jesus with tears in her eyes. Before we parted ways I helped her figure out how to download an audio Bible since rules at her work are extremely strict. I'm praying that God would use this woman for such a time as this and somehow be able to witness to the princess.
