Before meeting Jesus, Gryta*, a citizen of the Republic of North Macedonia (part of the Balkans), had low self-esteem and a pattern of destructive behavior due to past experiences of abuse, neglect, and health issues. She befriended IMB missionary Amy Williams at an ESL class and learned about the boundless love of Jesus, eventually joining a Bible study and receiving more kindness and acceptance from other Christian women.
In 2019, Amy saw a change in Gryta. Facing another health crisis, Gryta asked God for healing. Even when she didn’t immediately experience her desired results, she continued to praise God and declared His faithfulness to everyone around her. Through her witness, Gryta’s father chose to follow Jesus.
THE COOPERATIVE PROGRAM is the financial fuel for reaching every person for Jesus Christ in every town, every city, every state, and every nation. Your support through the Cooperative Program gives missionaries like Amy Williams the opportunity to form relationships and disciple others in the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
PRAY that Gryta will continue to declare God’s faithfulness and that the Lord will answer her prayer for healing. Pray also for Amy as she counsels and encourages Gryta, as well as shares the Gospel with other European peoples.
