In our prayer time today, let’s focus on New Orleans. As you can imagine, we will not talk about Mardi Gras or jazz or the things that draw tourists.
New Orleans is a mission field. Most of the city’s 400,000 or so people are lost and without Christ. Only about 12 percent of the people are evangelical Christians.
Our North American Mission Board has sent more than two dozen church planters to New Orleans to plant new churches that will reach many for Christ and disciple them in the Christian faith.
Let’s pray today for George and Joy Ross, our North American missionaries who serve in New Orleans. They are the cheerleaders, coaches and official encouragers of those church planters. George planted a church that multiplied, so he is experienced. He teaches many topics, from church planting to family life. He and Joy have six kids, so family is important to them.
George is always looking for church planters who may be called to New Orleans. He wants to see all New Orleans know Christ.
Our church supports George and Joy and all those other church planters through our Cooperative Program giving. Let’s pray now for them now.
