CMS Lasting Hope Appeal

Thank you for helping pass on lasting hope

In this year’s Lasting Hope Appeal we raised a total of $1,204,000. We give thanks for each and every person who made a lasting contribution to gospel ministry by giving to the appeal.

Through God’s power, and the work of CMS missionaries, men and women around the world are being saved! God is enabling our workers to pass on the gospel of hope and train others to keep passing on the news of Jesus. The $1,204,000 raised, along with generous contributions made throughout the year, will help us to keep supporting these missionaries, as well as raise up new workers for God’s harvest.

A story of hope in the South Pacific

In the South Pacific, many people go to church but they have never met Jesus.

In Vanuatu, CMS missionary Joel Atwood is discipling future church and community leaders for the region.
One of these trainees is Joel Fangalaasu.

Joel put his law career on hold this year to train as a full-time staff worker with the Christian Fellowship at the University of the South Pacific. He says:

I really want to see students come to know the real Jesus and be transformed by his word. For them to be so soaked in the gospel that telling others would be the most natural thing to do.”

The strategic ministry Joel is involved in is equipping people to pass on lasting hope to churches and communities in the South Pacific and beyond.

Will you give today today to enable future leaders in the region and across the world to know Jesus?

CMS has been training, preparing and sending people to take the gospel to the nations for over 200 years. This is only possible because CMS is a fellowship of churches and supporters who pray, care and give.

Your gift to this year’s Lasting Hope Appeal will help keep our missionaries in their locations, and help raise up new workers for the harvest field.
