M & G
One of the greatest joys of our ministry is being able to partner with an amazing pastor and his wife and also for the amazing team God has assembled here in our city. Working alongside a national partner is invaluable when trying to start a new church in such a dark place. Our pastor and his family have endured unimaginable things in the almost 10 years they have served in this city. They have become our closest friends, really more like family. We have also, in the past year, been blessed with great teammates.
As you pray today, please lift up these specific things:
Pray for the larger team that we lead which covers more than ¼ of our country as well as all the work among our people going on in Europe. Pray for peace and unity among the teams that we have the opportunity to lead. Pray for wisdom in directing the strategy and vision for our region as well as the diaspora work going on in Europe.
Pray for families to be called to serve in our area and for them to be obedient to the call God has place on their lives. Pray for wisdom as we seek discern what the Lord has for us if we are unable to stay in our country.
Pray for peace and stability in the country we live in. That political turmoil would not affect our ability to stay or our freedom to share the gospel and gather for worship.
Pray for the more than 30 workers who have been kicked out of our country in the last year. Pray for the hearts to be comforted and for the Lord to use the language and things they have learned here to advance his kingdom among Central Asian peoples.
Pray for us all to feel everyday the urgency of sharing the gospel with those who have never heard. As our country tightens its reigns on allowing foreigners to live here the weight of this feels heavier but in reality it should be something we feel each day.
