Long-term Missionaries in Hong Kong (Tiers 1-3): $7,000
Patrick Galligan, Courtney van Evera and Emily Carr have each spent time on short-term missions trips to East Asia and Hong Kong, and this summer they are praying to be able to go to Hong Kong together as long-term missionaries. There are big details left to fall into place, though. Patrick is waiting for acceptance into a graduate program, Courtney is still looking for a job as an English teacher, and Emily and Courtney are still trying to secure housing. Once God provides in these areas, the three will be partnering with the church in Hong Kong that Ching Yu Wang planted several years ago, reaching out to younger generations.
Through this year's Missions Fund, we hope to raise money to cover some of their travel and living expenses, while also providing funds for pastoral coaching trips.
We talked with Patrick, Courtney and Emily about the cultural dynamics at play in Hong Kong and why Hong Kong is a high-impact missions field.
