J & M
Pray for this family as they live out their faith in Jesus in a Muslim neighborhood. Pray for strength and stamina for M as she teaches in a local school and for courage and wisdom for J as he reaches out to neighbors with the Gospel. Pray for the children, as well, that they would thrive at school and be a strong witness among their friends.
You, my God, have revealed to your servant that you will build a house for him. So your servant has found courage to pray to you. You, Lord, are God! You have promised these good things to your servant. ~ 1 Chronicles 17:25-26
Country Spotlight: Ukraine
Ukraine gained its independence in 1991 and the country is now engaged in an intense political conflict with Russia. In the midst of the instability, the church in Ukraine continues to grow and to embrace its role of influence within society. MB Mission is involved in church planting through providing support and training to local pastors. Evelyn Wiens and her late husband, John, were overseeing some of this training as well as giving leadership to the New Hope Church and the New Hope Training Center. The center is focused on providing orphans with a home and with vocational training.
Peace in the Ukraine in the midst of the political tensions
Boldness in the church to confront corruption and the abuse of power
Opportunities for the church to proclaim the hope of the Gospel
More workers who will be involved in encouraging believers, caring for orphans and training leaders
