Today in our prayer time let’s pray for Jacob and Francine Zailian. They are two of our North American missionaries who have planted a church in Sanger, California.
Sanger is east of Fresno in the central part of the state. Jacob and Francine planted Set Free Church to specifically reach the homeless, the addicts, the former prisoners and others who are often forgotten by society.
Jacob wants them to know God has not forgotten them. His life looked really messed up after drug dealing got him a stay in the Fresno County Jail. That was when he prayed for God to help him. He did. Jacob swapped drugs for Bible reading, accepted Christ as his Savior and later became a minister and missionary.
That background is why Set Free Church distributes food, clothing, furniture and the like to meet the needs people have. That includes meeting their need for Jesus. Through our church’s Cooperative Program giving, our church is supporting Jacob and Francine as they minister in California. Let’s ask God to keep them safe and productive as they do.
