Operation Samaria 2020: Diaspora

Operation Samaria 2020: Diaspora

This year, we dare to be ambassadors for Christ in 3 areas in Sabah, Malaysia among the Filipino migrants from Southern Philippines who are now also scattered in this State. We are excited as well for this the first for any OS team to be brought on foreign soil.

Operation Samaria is hence themed “Diaspora,” to describe the migration of both believers and lumads/stateless, involuntary or voluntarily; however, a timely phenomenon that we as a team would like to seize and ignite or mobilize as an existing/strategic form of doing missions. We cling on these verses for this OS; Luke 1:78-79 that says, “..because of the tender mercy of our God, whereby the sunrise shall visit us from on high, to give light to those who sit in darkness and in the shadow of death, to guide our feet into the way of peace”; and in Acts 8:4, “Now those who were scattered went about preaching the word.”

We pray that OS would commence on these dates; May 24 to June 8, 2020. We pray for volunteers from different fields. We pray for medical and dental volunteers to be able to join the entire trip. We also pray for resources both for medicines, fare, accommodation, and food (as we are raising about 150 thousand pesos, each volunteer will raise 15 thousand pesos). But most of all, we pray that Jesus will be known in the hearts of those to whom we will encounter.

If you hope to hear more detailed updates, feel free to communicate with us. If wanting to share resources in any form you are more than welcome. If wanting to volunteer, please do join us!
