Friends, Acts 1:8 tells us we’re to share the gospel to the ends of the earth and today we want to pray for two of our missionaries who are right on the edge of the ends.
Two of our missionaries, Peter and Lucy Station, are serving in Mongolia. Now, in case you don’t have an atlas with you, that’s north of China and south of Russia, where many people still live in tents.
Peter and Lucy go out visiting in tent communities to witness and share the gospel. We help support them in their work there, through our church’s Cooperative Program giving.
Last Christmas they told a man and his wife the Christmas story and how Jesus came into the world; our missionaries also gave their testimonies about how Jesus could come into their lives and provide salvation.
The man, his wife and their daughters, all came to faith in Christ.
Soon after this, the man, whose name is Ganzorig (say gan-ZORE-ig) became sick with hepatitis, which damaged his liver. While that’s bad, the good news is that this new believer was not afraid. He was trusting God to take care of him.
Today let’s pray for our brave missionaries, who are being faithful in going so far to share the precious message of the gospel. And let’s pray that this new believer may be healed if it is God’s will. Let’s ask the Lord for many to be saved in Siberia.
