#IDW2020 Learnings Don't Have to End Here
Hey there,

Thank you for journeying with us throughout #IDW2020. We have appreciated your prayer and reflection throughout this week, which has seen us reflect on multiple components to meaningful global engagement.

First, our theme of 'Sustainability from God's All Sufficiency' allowed us to root ourselves in the truth of God's character, as an eternal source we can depend on. Psalm 121 gave us great reminders of His nature and a way for us and our global partners, to be reminded to rejoice in the resources God has given, no matter the amount.

Second, the thoughtfulness of our posture in engagement with the global church was examined. As we recognize and see our role in collaboration with the global church, we must interact and engage in a way that promotes how God has already been working and motivating followers of Jesus to invest in their communities.

Third, we highlighted how our global partners are demonstrating the love and hope of Jesus, through avenues of healthcare, education, and agriculture. It was a privilege to pray for them as well as those receiving our partners investment. We were able to highlight the story of how our partners are investing in Haiti and Ethiopia and others at emcc.ca/projects .

Fourth, we continually asked ourselves meaningful questions about what our global partners are modelling for our own engagement in where God has placed us. How can we demonstrate resilient hope in our spheres of influence? How can we invest ourselves in community initiatives for holistic transformation?

We hope this reflection has led you to consider a key question: what are your next steps? World Partners would be privileged to journey with as you consider how God might be nudging you and those around you.
