GLOBAL NEWS OPPORTUNITY TO PRAY: Burma (Myanmar)
"In the Buddhist nation of Burma (also called Myanmar), military forces have been targeting Christians on a massive scale. In the northern Kachin state—which is predominantly Christian—approximately 400 villages and 300 churches have been destroyed, hundreds of Christians have been killed, and more than 120,000 of the Kachin people have been displaced. In the southern Karen state, which also is predominantly Christian, more than 100,000 Karen people have fled across the border to squalid refugee camps in Thailand. Yet, in spite of this hostility to followers of the Cross, Burmese people are coming to Christ out of Buddhism. (via frontlinemissions.info)." Source: Frontline Missions.

Way to Pray: Please pray for God’s grace for these persecuted brothers and sisters to remain strong for Jesus.

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, his wife, reaches out to the wives of the men that David interacts with. David and 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.
