Morning: Capture a Vision
(Missouri) More than 1,200 international students from 72 countries attend Missouri State University. Many of the students are open to learning about Christianity as part of studying American culture. Few, though, take the step of faith to follow Jesus. For North American missionary BILLY GRADY, it is exciting to see them come to Christ, be discipled and trained, and sent back home as missionaries to their friends and families. Your Cooperative Program dollars help Billy and his wife, GINA make an impact worldwide. They ask that you pray others will capture a vision for reaching the nations by reaching international students who are attending Missouri State.

Morning: Touched Through Generosity
(Northern Africa and the Middle East) Amira’s* North African family are believers who have been persecuted by their Muslim neighbors since becoming Christians. Eight-year-old Amira asked Samia,* a Muslim friend, to play. Samia’s mother overheard the girls: Samia wanted to pretend to pray, but Amira responded that prayer is not a game. She showed Samia how believers pray. She prayed for Muslim families who had persecuted them. She asked God to bless them and forgive them. Samia’s mother said she felt the earth shake during the little girl’s prayer. Later, she and her family of 14 Muslims accepted Jesus as Savior. The Cooperative Program supports workers in North Africa who disciple new believers such as these. *Name changed.
