“I am so thankful for each person that God has brought to my English classes. Please pray for Ako, a woman who joined my English class last fall. She has attended church a couple of times and is very open to the Gospel. Pray that her work schedule would allow her time to begin studying the Bible and that she would accept God’s gift of salvation. Pray that I and my team of helpers can build deeper relationships with the students as we interact with them each week.”
May our Lord Jesus Christ himself and God our Father, who loved us and by his grace gave us eternal encouragement and good hope, encourage your hearts and strengthen you in every good deed and word. ~ 2 Thessalonians 2:16
Country Spotlight: Lithuania
The church in Lithuania is growing and, increasingly, it is made up of first-generation Christians. Like the early church in the books of Acts, there is an urgent need for teaching, prayer, and ministry of the word (Acts 6:4). A network of young Lithuanian churches will officially become part of the International Community of MB churches in May 2014. Within Lithuanian society, there is still some resistance to the formation of new religious groups, such as the new churches being planted. The churches are often perceived as a sect that cannot be trusted.
