Evening: What's Your Favorite Book?
(Japan) Missionaries CHARLIE and TERESA SEELEN work with summer interns and volunteer teams to take the Gospel to the people of Kobe, Japan. One outreach effort is called “Five-Minute English.” Christian workers go to a major train station and hold up signs that say “Let’s Speak English.” People who are interested engage in a conversation through a series of questions. The last question asks them the name of their favorite book. Then the workers share theirs: the Bible. The workers also share the Gospel, if the opportunity arises. Each new Japanese acquaintance departs with a copy of a booklet about the life of Jesus, purchased with the help of Cooperative Program gifts.

Evening: Multiplying Congregations
(Maryland) Native Puerto Rican, JOSE NATER was pursuing a successful career in the hotel business until a career-advancing move to Cambridge, Md., changed his life. Jose found himself jobless, homeless and desperate for God’s provision. He learned God was in control of his life and dedicated himself to serving the Lord. Jose and his wife, MAYRA, started a church that multiplied by starting two churches. Now a Church Planting Center, Jose is leading his church to develop leaders and strategies to continue the church multiplication process. Your prayers for the Naters and your continued support of the Cooperative Program are needed to begin more churches in Maryland.
