Morning: AISING A NEW GENERATION OF BELIEVERS
(South Asia) A woman from Sri Lanka was only 5 years old when her teacher told her class Jesus had died on the cross for their sins. She cried for a week. From that time on, Jesus Christ had her heart. Though her Buddhist mother continued to take her to the temple, she belonged to Jesus. She heard Him speak to her throughout her life, and she sought to listen and obey. Today she is the mother of three young men. She has sought diligently to teach them about the way, the truth and the life. Missionaries in South Asia are grateful to work beside Christians, like this woman, who are raising a new generation of believers.
Bible reference & statement:
The highest example of giving is God giving His Son. God gave that we might have eternal life. That others may also have eternal life is a motive for our giving.
Evening: BEYOND THE WALLS OF THE CHURCH
(Massachusetts) STEPHEN MCDONALD is a pastor at a church plant in Mill City, Massachusetts. In his ministry at the church in Mill City, Stephen teaches a special Christianity Explored class for skeptics and those curious about Christianity in an attempt to reach out beyond the walls of the church to the community. It is through your dedication to the Great Commission through giving through the Cooperative Program and the Annie Armstrong Easter Offering that churches such as Mill City exist and that Stephen has the privilege of shepherding those in Mill City. Pray today for Stephen’s ministry at Mill City—that God would raise up disciples in their midst to be passionate about spreading the Gospel to the ends of the earth.
