Morning: CHURCHES STARTING CHURCHES
(Alaska) DAVID GEORGE is a North American Mission Board church planting catalyst and director of missions for Chugach Baptist Association in Anchorage, Alaska. Spanning an area larger than the state of Texas, David travels extensively in his association assisting and resourcing 49 churches. During the past five years, David has led the association to start seven new congregations, but more are still needed to reach the lost in such a
large area. David is thankful for your support of the Cooperative Program and Annie Armstrong Easter Offering and asks you join him in praying for God to raise up more indigenous leaders who will step out in faith and begin new ministries and churches.
Bible reference & statement:
When we experience victory in our lives, the natural response is gratitude to God. Just as Abraham gave tithes to the priest Melchizedek out of gratitude for victory in battle, we give in gratitude.
Evening: RELATIONSHIP EVANGELISM
(American Peoples) During the past year, 18 cell groups throughout Puebla, Mexico, have been meeting weekly to study the Bible. People in these groups have been working together to win their neighbors and family members to Christ, using relationship evangelism and community outreach. Through their involvement in Puebla’s cell churches, participants have gained the sense that they are useful in God’s Kingdom, according to SHERRY BENNETT, IMB missionary there. “They know that influencing neighbors and family members for Christ is as simple as inviting them over for coffee and conversation,” she said.
