Lena Eckhart*

IMB worker Lena Eckhart* meets with a group of Muslim-background women in the United Kingdom who have chosen to commit their lives to Christ. The women used to meet regularly to study the Bible. Due to COVID-19 lockdowns in the U.K., the group wasn’t able to meet together for nearly three months.

The women had a hard time staying in the Word because they did not have privacy during the lockdown. Most of the women have to hide their faith from their families, and the quarantine made it very difficult for them to read their Bibles without being caught.

When lockdown restrictions eased, Lena was able to meet with a few of the ladies. She asked them to meet with those not in attendance and do the Bible study with them so that no one missed out. In this way, restrictions during COVID-19 helped these believers become leaders and disciple-makers.

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 allows missionaries to build Gospel-centered relationships with people all around the world.

PRAY for these women to continue making disciples and that God would strengthen their ministry.
