In less than two weeks the landscape of Eastern Europe has changed—dramatically! And the situation sadly continues to deteriorate with tragic consequences.
Yet we know God is still in control.
And the prayers of His people—you, me and many thousands of Christ-followers are working.
Let me explain.
Even before the Russian invasion of Ukraine, we had contracts in-hand for radio broadcasting into both Ukraine and Russia for Easter. With the outbreak of the war, our team sought out additional, earlier opportunities for broadcasting. And God has opened doors as we partner with Transworld Radio (TRW).
Beginning in the next couple of days, and for the next three weeks, Jesus Film ® is broadcasting into both nations; people, families and towns are hearing the gospel in their heart languages.
Please pray for those who will listen, who will hear the gospel through our audio/drama versions of JESUS and our other films.
- Pray men, women and children will respond to the message of Christ.
- Pray even for soldiers who might hear.
- Pray for hearts to receive hope and peace.
More good news…
As refugees are fleeing into Eastern Europe, ministry workers and believers are deploying our NewLifeBox® kits in relief camps in some key locations. Refugees are taking very little with them as they flee the war zone, but all will have their smart phones. And they can pick up the wi-fi-like signal from a NewLifeBox® kit. Right there, in the palm of their hand, they can watch and hear the good news!
Pray for the hearts of refugees to be open. We often find when people are physically displaced, when their world is turned upside down, that they are most receptive to the gospel. They are seeking safety and peace. They can now find it, and that one true hope which you and I know only in and through a personal relationship with Christ.
Please pray with us!
- I am seeing slow, but positive progress on my back issues; the swimming is helping. Thank you for your continued prayers.
- I am on the first of my two trips to Florida for the ministry this month. They have been productive, but a bit draining at times. Pray for endurance.
- Continue to pray for life balance.
- Pray for wisdom and clarity as I seek the Lord on the home front.
“I will praise you, Lord, among the nations; I will sing of you among the peoples.
For great is your love, reaching to the heavens; your faithfulness reaches to the skies.
Be exalted, O God, above the heavens; let your glory be over all the earth.”
Psalms 57:9-11 (NIV)
