In our missions prayer time, we’re going to pray for Eric and Anissa Haney, two of our missionaries serving in Stockholm, Sweden. Sweden is like the rest of Europe — a challenging mission field because church planting is slow and difficult.
Eric and Anissa are trying something new: they’re telling New Testament stories through music, narration and multimedia. The two have written the music of their new production, which they call “Stories of Hope.” Their project was featured in the Stockholm Jazz Festival last fall, then released in a new album and online.
Eric saw posters advertising concerts on a wall in Stockholm — all dark and depressing. He and Anissa want “Stories of Hope” to light up that darkness with the power of Christ.
Eric and Anissa have served in Stockholm for 11 years. They have found people do respond to Bible stories, which most have never heard before. Our church supports Eric and Anissa through our Cooperative Program giving. Let’s pray that, through their music and their witnessing, many will come to faith in Christ.
