Today in our prayer time we want to pray for one of our home missionaries serving in San Diego, California. Her name is Ebbie Davis. Now, you’re thinking San Diego is a great place to live, right? No doubt. But it’s also a very difficult mission field. More than three million people live in and around San Diego and fewer than 10 percent are evangelical Christians. There are many Hispanics but also people from many lands.
Ebbie first went to San Diego through our North American Mission Board. The board has a program called NextGen. It sends Christian college students to missions sites in North America. The students help plant new churches and work alongside home missionaries. Now Ebbie is working with eight NextGen students in the San Diego area, helping plant a new church where hundreds of new churches are needed.
Our church supports our North American Mission Board and the NextGen program just as we are supporting our missionary Ebbie Davis — all through our Cooperative Program giving.
Let’s pray that more students will be called to missions and see firsthand how the gospel can change lives. And let’s pray for Ebbie as she works with those students there in San Diego.
