One Mission Stories "After the Show" -- Alan Parkinson

We hope you enjoyed Sunday night's (March 9) One Mission Stories, OMS' one-hour missionary interview-style radio program, featuring OMS missionary Alan Parkinson, serving in South Pacific (the island). Alan, from OMS UK, served as a high school chaplain at an international Christian school for three years, but now is involved with evangelism and church planting.

The show also featured executive director of International Ministries, Randy Spacht, giving an exciting update on the overall work of OMS. OMS, serving in more than 70 countries, is involved in evangelistic church planting, church growth and development, training leaders, partnership, and enabling or support ministries (such as MK teachers, administration, etc..) to allow the missionaries to flourish in their roles. GOD IS AT WORK!

Here are our "After the Show" resources to better connect you with things you heard about on last night's program.

GO: Do you want to be a missionary, either short- or long-term with OMS? As Alan shared, it was through a short-term mission experience that God called him and his family to full-time service. Check out the opportunities, including all the upcoming short-term trips with MFM

GIVE: If you would like to give a gift to any OMS ministries, you can do so online

PRAY: Pray for Alan and his family as they seek to disciple seminary students. Pray also as he works with local believers to multiply churches (use the training he's received on obedience-based discipleship) and that many new people would come to know Christ. 

If you would like to pray for other OMS needs, visit our OMS prayer wall.

BOOKS/RESOURCES: You can purchase all OMS books through our OMS store on Amazon or by contacting the OMS World HQ. Call or email Barb Sandoz at 317.888.3333, ext. 313, or email
