Guidelines for Communication With Global Partners

Do not be afraid to write to our missionaries overseas. But, please remember to be sensitive to the political situation of each country. We do not want to jeopardize the safety and ministry of any workers, especially those in Communist and Muslim countries.

If there is scrutiny, pressure or persecution, we want it to be because of their success, not our carelessness.

Guidelines for Writing

Please refrain from mentioning “Christian” words or ministries, such as:

  • location
  • people group information
  • workers names in one location
  • the word “missionary” or mission agency names
  • “prayer letters” or support teams
  • Christian slang, such as references to evangelism, church planting, Bible translation, etc.
  • “conversions,” “converts,” or names of national believers

Also, use care when using “spiritual warfare” terminology, which can easily be taken the wrong way.
