Today we will pray for one of our missionaries in South Asia. We will call her Bethany, but that’s not her real name. I think you’ll agree her ministry is a huge challenge and she needs prayer support!
Asian languages are known to be hard to learn. But Bethany is a missionary to Deaf people. She has had to learn the special sign language used by South Asia’s millions of Deaf people. Bethany meets with Deaf people every week and tells Bible stories. Deaf people love stories and the Bible is filled with great ones. Many of the Deaf accept that the Bible is true.
But deciding to follow Jesus is a hard choice for people here. They fear they may be cut off from their families or jobs. They fear they may not be able to marry.
Let’s pray for our missionary we’re calling Bethany. Let’s ask God to keep her safe in a dangerous part of the world. Let’s ask God to give her wisdom as she shares the gospel with people who fear earthly consequences more than they fear eternal ones. Our church supports Bethany through our Cooperative Program giving. Let’s pray for her now.
