This morning, I was very happy to see a new edition of the book, Operation World. If you’re unfamiliar with this book, you’re really missing out! Do you ever pray for missions or missionaries? How do you know what to pray for? Certainly, there are some basic, even essential, biblical concepts to pray for, but wouldn’t it be great to know the individual and specific needs of missionaries and people groups around the world? That’s what Operation World is all about. That last edition came out in 2001, so I’m more than ready for a new edition (due out this August)!
Here’s the publisher’s description:
