Mitchell & Elaina Perez

ROWLAND HEIGHTS, CALIFORNIA

Rowland Heights is one of many cities that make up Greater Los Angeles. It's north of Anaheim, where Disneyland is. Few tourists will visit Rowland Heights. Asians and Hispanics make up 87 percent of the population and 60 percent of the people were born outside the United States. This is where we want to focus our prayer time today, because this is where our missionaries, Mitchell and Elaina Perez, are planting new churches. This is Mitchell's home town, so he knows it well. We support these missionaries through our church's Cooperative Program giving. They first planted a new church called Home Church. They want to reach the children of immigrants - those second and third generation folks who were born here, but still identify with an Asian or Hispanic culture. Mitchell and Elaina want to cover a big area and reach many kinds of people, so they have home meetings on Friday nights in eight different communities. Sundays they gather everyone together for worship. A lot of their growth happens because members invite people who are not church members. Wherever people come from, they need Jesus! Let's pray for Mitchell and Elaina now.
