HUMAN TRAFFICKING

Human trafficking has become a worldwide epidemic that plagues every continent, including North America. Posing as sympathetic paternal figures, successful businessmen, or wise religious leaders, trafficking rings target young children and their families by promising wealth and a new life. As their victims blindly follow, they find themselves trapped in a life of hard labor, forced prostitution, and/or physical abuse.

Using the PricelessCube, you can join e3 Partners in educating at-risk communities about the dangers and practices of these traffickers. As a part of our Community Transformation initiative, we then help churches identify sustainable solutions to stimulate the local economy and reduce the desperation that leads to human trafficking.

THANK YOU for reading this! (7-minute read)

If you have known us for a while, this will be a helpful update and reassurance that we are still vision driven and working hard. However, if you are just now getting to know us, this brief letter might prepare us for some good conversations, hopefully leading us into a personally significant partnership in God’s mission.    

This letter will clarify:

Who we are
What we are doing
How you can help

Since our earliest days in Nepal (photo from 1999), our work has taken many different forms. But in these past 25 years, God has clearly guided us into every new season.  

Here we are again, approaching another fresh start to a whole new season. As we try to faithfully steward every experience and lesson learned, we are excited to serve in new ways that might have an even greater impact for God’s glory around the world.

Please consider this letter as your invitation to continue persevering with us in partnership or maybe to join with us for the first time.

Below, you will see some the main things God has called us to do in this new chapter of our calling. We hope this is helpful as you prayerfully consider new and even deeper levels of partnership with us in this mission.

WHO WE ARE

  • We passionate about our calling
  • We rely on God’s Spirit and His Word to implement biblical strategies
  • We work hard at catalyzing movements for the glory of Jesus

I recently asked people who know us best what they would want to share with anyone considering partnership with us. References flooded in from many of our co-workers, current partners and even some of the national believers we serve!  

If you want to do some research, please read those for yourself. Just go to our Epistle website called “Smiths on Mission” and select the hashtag labeled “#references”. Or simply go to this link ( https://smith-family-on-mission.epistle.org/tags/references ).

WHAT WE DO

Engaging the Least Reached within Global Migration

Across major cities in North America and the European countries where least reached people groups flee to for a better life, we are serving local leaders to effectively engage people with the Gospel of Jesus.

Strategy Coordination Training

Through leadership training we developed in South Asia, we are working hard to demystify the missionary role by giving people clear pathways for a lifetime of learning and fruitfulness in disciple makers and church planters.

Player Coaching

Besides training missionaries, Carol and I get to personally coach many young people who have made the decision to build and implement serious strategic plans to make Christ known in places with very little access to the Gospel.

Co-Worker Care among Missionaries

While we certainly care about progress, we are just as serious about the personal thriving of the sweet missionary families we get to serve. Beyond our strategic roles, building an ethos and structure for co-worker care is another stewardship we have at e3Partners and as members of the greater #NoPlaceLeft collation.

As you can see, everything we do is to catalyze the multiplication of healthy disciples and churches so that the Great Commission of Jesus might be completed in our generation (Matthew 18:18-20; 24:14; Rev. 7:9).

HOW YOU CAN HELP

We have an amazing prayer team, an excellent organization and more invitations to serve missionaries and start new work than we can currently respond to, but that is mainly because of one factor that we are asking for your help to overcome.

Since Carol has joined me to serve full time on staff with e3 Partners (Praise God!), and due to the expenses that come with these opportunities, we need to aggressively pursue a goal of raising $5,000 regular monthly support.

FOUR specific ways to help:

PRAY!

While this may seem like a big challenge, this is not too great a challenge for God to overcome. Please pray that God will meet this need in His way and in His perfect timing.

Persevere with Us

We are obviously spurred on by knowing that you are personally engaged in this work through your encouragements, prayers and ongoing contributions.

Connect us with Your Friends


If you know anyone who might be looking for a personal and trustworthy investment into God’s work, please ask if we could give them a call to discuss partnership.

Monthly Increases and/or One-Time Contributions

Lastly, if you have capacity and feel led to do so, we would obviously welcome any increases or any kind of one-time contributions to give us an immediate boost!

NEXT STEPS:

  • Give us a call or text and let’s meet together for some good conversation.

  • For a full week, ask God everyday if He wants you to join us.

  • Learn more by signing up for our “Smiths on Mission” website and email updates.

  • If you’re sensing a green-light from the Lord, set up your contribution and let us know!  

THANK YOU for seriously considering this invitation. We are looking forward to sharing the challenges and victories of this mission with good friends like you!

Until there is No Place Left (Romans 15:23)
