EDITORIAL: Power of partnership

Editor of awmlink

Gospel ministry also relies on teamwork. The Apostle Paul benefited from the help of co-workers and prayer supporters.

If you want to go fast, go alone; if you want to go far, go together. African proverb

Mo Farah, the British Olympic runner, managed to beat the track again to retain his World Championship medals in 2015. He goes down in history as the number one athlete for both 5,000 and 10,000 metres.

His autobiography mentions a list of people behind the scenes. They each played their part in helping Mo achieve his sporting potential – the school PE teacher who spotted his talent, coaches who honed his abilities, runners who pushed him, and his wife who supported him.

Gospel ministry also relies on teamwork. The Apostle Paul benefited from the help of co-workers like Silas, Barnabas and Timothy and relied on the ministry of his prayer supporters, ‘And pray for us, too, that God may open a door for our message, so that we may proclaim the mystery of Christ, for which I am in chains.’ (Colossians 4:3-4).

This magazine will inspire you as you read about the power of partnership between prayer supporters, the local sending church and national believers in global mission.
