In our missions prayer time today, let’s make it a time of thanksgiving because of what happened recently in the Caucuses area of far eastern Europe. Life has been very hard in this mostly mountainous area lately, because of the COVID-19 pandemic and a war that displaced thousands of people during the harsh winter. Despite all this, two churches helped set up a three-day retreat which included sharing the gospel.
By the last day, more than 125 people — everyone who attended — had come to faith in Jesus Christ! Our two local missionaries, who we’ll call Cade and Jenny Wheeler, have served in this area for many years. But they have been stuck in the U.S. because of travel restrictions. The decisions for Christ were a wonderful validation of their years of ministry, of course. The churches have been ministering night and day to help people impacted by the pandemic and the war.
Our church supports Cade and Jenny through our Cooperative Program giving. Isn’t it great to see how God has blessed their long ministry? Let’s thank Him now.
