Today in our missions prayer time, we’re going to pray for two of our North American missionaries serving in Idaho. Anders and Jessica Snyder serve in Nampa, Idaho, a city of about 100,000 people located west of the bigger city of Boise. Our church supports them through our Cooperative Program giving.
Anders and Jessica are specialists not in PLANTING churches, but in RE-PLANTING churches. When they arrived with their four children at the existing church on Almond Street, there was a good building. But the membership had declined to about 35 members. Anders and Jessica helped figure out how to reach the diverse neighborhoods around the church and began leading outreach efforts. Soon those 35 members had tripled in the re-planted church now named Calvary Church Nampa.
The well-put aim of the church is to “make Jesus non-ignorable in Nampa and to the ends of the earth.” Let’s pray for Anders and Jessica. Let’s ask God that this re-planted church will succeed at making Jesus “non-ignorable.”
