Today, we want to pray for Rusty Ford, one of our missionaries serving in Europe — one of those our church supports through the Cooperative Program.
As Rusty ministered to a family, he met a young man named Raoul (say rah-OOL), who looked strong and athletic, because he was a kickboxing champion. But the young man struggled with drug addiction.
Rusty took Raoul to a Christian rehab center for treatment that included counseling and prayer. As Raoul heard the gospel, he accepted Christ as his Savior. Soon, Raoul’s twin brother, Jorge, also became a Christian.
The two brothers decided they could use their boxing as an outreach method and Rusty helped them start classes at a church. Young men flocked to the classes, and so far the two brothers have shared the gospel with more than 50 of them. Many of these young men have decided to follow Christ and to stop using drugs.
Today let’s pray for Rusty’s ministry there in Europe, which desperately needs to know the gospel, just as these two boxing brothers did.
