Brent Kooi, Sydney Australia

Our missionary of the week is Brent Kooi, who is preparing to serve with the MTW team in Sydney, Australia.  Over the past few months, Brent has been traveling between Jackson and Birmingham, working with The Birmingham Missions Cohort, a ministry of Mission to the World (MTW).  The Birmingham Missions Cohort (B-MC) is “an intentional community seeking to train and mentor young professionals to use their gifts in God’s global mission”.  Seven adults are participating in this cohort and meet twice a week, visiting with missionaries and learning about various missions topics.  This interim position has given Brent a way to continue his involvement in missions while he waits for Australia’s borders to reopen.

Pray that the B-MC participants will be faithful to the great commission and that B-MC would be replicated in other cities to increase the call to foreign missions.

Pray that God would allow for the reopening of the Australian borders so that Brent could start his ministry in Sydney in July.
