TIBM’s pastor/church planting leader Cody will be speaking in the Dallas area at two events from Sept 18-19.
First, he will be sharing at the DFW Diaspora Roundtable. Pray that local North Texas leaders will be encouraged and better equipped to reach out to diaspora peoples there. Please also pray for Christ-centered unity and fellowship among the participants.
Hours later, Cody will speak at the International Society of Frontier Missiology annual meeting. ISFM, founded by Ralph Winter, is focused on promoting thinking and sharing about missions as it relates to the unfinished task. In attendance will be many leaders who influence the direction of missions for sending organizations, educational institutes, etc.
This year, the entire program will be focused on diaspora missions. Cody will be speaking on Wednesday about missions to diaspora peoples and participating in a panel discussion on Thursday about the implications of diaspora for mission agencies.
Pray that the Lord will help Cody be physically able to speak (as he has been dealing with various ailments lately). Pray that the Lord will give Cody wisdom and insight as he speaks.
Pray that the Lord will make the meeting a key moment to mobilize and compel the top frontier missiologists in the US regarding what the Lord is doing among the people on the move. Pray that the Church will take notice of God’s movements as He scatters and gathers people around the globe and will take the steps to move with Him.
