In a nominally Orthodox “Christian” country lies a border town populated by Muslims. For years, Natalia*, a local teacher, took every opportunity to share God’s love with those in her school despite being the only Christ-follower. IMB workers, Mark and Annie Crosby*, moved to a nearby city to focus on ministry to Muslims. They were able to connect with Natalia and associate with her school through a foundation for community development which offers family events and support.
Their first big event for the school was a Christmas presentation. The team was nervous to share openly, but the Muslims in the city were familiar with Christmas because of the country in which they live. The event was a success.
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 the Crosbys opportunities to connect with communities and show them the love of Jesus through various events and initiatives.
PRAY for the Crosbys as they continue to minister to the people they serve and that God would continue to open doors for them, as well as for Natalia.
