January Go Partner
Nathan and Naomi Gapper are our GO Partner spotlight for this month. They serve in East Asia, reaching out to the locals and largely Muslim population. Their main goal is to build relationships with individuals in the hopes of sharing the gospel. Nathan often will board the local train and/or bus to go to outlying villages to support underground house churches, and help equip these pastors to better share the Gospel. For security reasons, more information cannot be given, but we ask you to continue to pray for Nathan, Naomi, and their two children. Pray for God’s will and divine appointments.
