Today let’s pray for one of our Southern Baptist missionaries serving in Wales. That’s the small nation beside England — both are part of the United Kingdom. His name is Ross Frierson and he serves in Cardiff, the capital of Wales, about 150 miles west of London.
Ross is one of several missionaries sent by our International Mission Board to serve at Redeemer Church. That church is seeking to reach the thousands of refugees who have been resettled here.
They have fled from Yemen, Syria, and many other places to find safety. Some come from countries closed to our missionaries. In Wales, our missionaries have a unique opportunity to tell them about Jesus. The church is succeeding! People from 18 nations attend services.
Our church supports Ross in this hard assignment through our Cooperative Program giving. But our church also helped prepare him for it. Our church supports Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary in Fort Worth, Texas — also through the Cooperative Program.
Ross earned two degrees there to train him for his ministry in Wales.
Let’s pray for Ross now and let’s thank God for the great work Southwestern is doing to prepare men and women for ministry in some very hard places
