I’ve noticed a new hashtag trending on Twitter: #ForTheMission.
It’s for a campaign that the folks over at the International Mission Board (IMB) have started for continuing support to
Now being lead by the recently elected President, David Platt, the IMB’s sole purpose is to, as it says on their website, “bring the gospel of Jesus Christ to the lost peoples of the world.”
The premise of the campaign is for those who donate, to symbolically (or actually for that matter), “skip a meal” by donating $10 in support of the effort. As far as I’ve seen, donations can be made in two ways:
- By texting “4mission” to 80888. I believe the charges are made to your cell phone bill.
- At this website by credit card.
The IMB is also encouraging folks to post a picture of themselves showing how they supported this cause, and tag the picture with the “#forthemission” hashtag.
Here’s a post from the Radical website/blog which explains a bit more about this initiative.
So, what do you think? Are you willing to pass on one meal today to help spread the gospel of Jesus Christ?
I pray you do.
Grace and Peace,
