 Missionary Moment

Where – “the Church Is Not Yet”

PRAISE: A pastor of a Ukrainian Church of  the Nazarene has been “going where the church is not  yet” for four years with a group ministering in a remote  mountain village. Because of the climate, the team can only access the village from May to September, on a 3-meter-wide (10-foot-wide) road with no railings. However, “the scariest thing is that, over the history of Christianity, they have never heard of the gospel,” the pastor said. “God has encouraged the people at our church, because they realized that they are part of something much bigger: they are part of God’s big mission.” Give thanks to God for the pastor’s willingness to reach others with the gospel.  Please pray for the people to whom they witness, and pray that the congregation in Ukraine will continue to recognize how they can make a difference in others’ lives.

“Missions Moment”  –  PRAYERS & PRAISES  –

Medical – > Outreach in Panama

PRAISE: The Panama Central District held a  medical outreach in several communities in February with  help from volunteers from the district and from a church in  the US. The medical professionals attended the needs of 500
people, and volunteers shared the gospel with them. Give  thanks for people who are willing to help in initiatives  like this, whether near their homes or far away, and pray  for those who heard the gospel, that those seeds would take
root and flourish in their spiritual lives.

Prayer REQUEST: Please pray for Shirley Greene, missionary to Tonga, who was recently wounded in a dog attack. Shirley is recuperating in New Zealand and is grateful for prayer. Shirley and her husband, Bill, have been serving on a short-term mission assignment at The Mango Tree Centre. The Greenes hope to return to The Mango Tree Centre soon. The Centre ministers in Christ’s name to handicapped and disabled children and their families.
