GLOBAL NEWS OPPORTUNITY TO PRAY: Ethiopia
"After large scale attacks against Christians in southern Ethiopia left three people dead and 38 homes destroyed in 2017, it would have been easy for Christians in the region to give up. Instead, church leaders in this rural region committed to encouraging their people. Two years later, the church in the area is stronger than ever. Attendance has doubled in one church while another has planted two daughter churches. One pastor said the love and determination displayed by Christians in the aftermath of the attacks inspired Muslims in his community to approach him to ask how they could become followers of Christ. God’s glory is being displayed in southern Ethiopia, but believers there still face many challenges. (via icommittopray.com)." Source: Voice of the Martyrs

Way to Pray: Pray for provision for these believers and for more hearts to be won to Christ.

MISSIONARY HIGHLIGHT: Martin

David Martin has a spiritually influential role with many community leaders right here in Greenville. Search Ministries equips people to grow in their relationship with Jesus Christ and to skillfully express that relationship in their personal spheres of influence. This is accomplished through small groups, individual training, seminars, and conferences. Among his other ministry duties, David leads open forums, weekly and monthly small groups, and does outreach trips with men. Elaine leads a large women's Bible study in Greenville called "Above All." David and his wife, Elaine, have two adult children, Drew and Natalie.

Way to Pray: David and Elaine are seeking to multiply ministry by training different couples and individuals. Please pray that God provides the right people to continue on this discipleship process. 


OPPORTUNITY TO PRAY

This week we have a small team in Bogota! While there, the team is working alongside national pastors and Colombian believers to share the Gospel in creative ways. The team will also help start a brand new church by sharing their story and God’s story through translators in a developing area of the world. Please be in prayer that this team will see God move in new and exciting ways this week and that they will have lots of great opportunities to grow relationships with those they talk to.
