Remember new appointees as they face the challenge of trusting God to meet their needs from the time of acceptance until they leave for the their cross cultural appointment. Some will need to complete their training, or undertake further training. All will need to trust God to raise their partnership development team that consists of a considerable number of people committing themselves to long term prayer and financial support. Some appointees will be fearful of this challenge. It is a step of faith. Ask God to strengthen, encourage and surprise them as he meets this need.
