In our missions prayer time today, let’s pray for our missionary, Mark Chambers. Now, Mark serves in Northern Africa, but today let’s focus on how he served in Oklahoma. Specifically, he went to a town called Guymon.
Guymon is in the rugged panhandle of Oklahoma, sorta due north of Amarillo, Texas. Turns out hundreds of refugees have settled in and around Guymon, mostly to work in the meat-packing plants there. Many of those refugees are from Northern Africa. So when First Baptist Church in Guymon wanted to learn how to reach those refugees for Christ, they called on Mark for help.
Mark and another missionary helped the church map out the areas where the immigrants live and figure out the best ways to meet their needs — including their spiritual need to know Jesus as Savior.
Let’s pray for First Baptist Church today and all our U.S. churches which have immigrant populations that need to be reached. Let’s pray for our missionary, Mark Chambers, as he serves in Northern Africa. We support him through our church’s Cooperative Program giving.
