Today we're going to pray for one of our missionaries. We will call him John, but that's not his real name.
You see the news like I do and you know that, even here in North America, sharing Jesus with some people is simply dangerous.
John is planting a new church among tens of thousands of Chinese people who have come here to live. They speak Mandarin Chinese.
The new church is the first church for Mandarin speakers in the city.
They come from a country that insists on atheism and opposes the Christian faith, sometimes with violence. So John's ministry is dangerous. But it's also rewarding.
He tells of sharing the gospel with a couple and they committed their lives to Jesus Christ. They both wept when they realized what Jesus had done for them.
Even though we do not know John's real name or even where he is serving, our church is supporting him through our Cooperative Program giving. Remember that we do not give TO the Cooperative Program, because it is just a channel. No, our missions dollars go THROUGH the Cooperative Program to missionaries like John who are Kingdom workers.
Let's pray for him now.Download PDF
