GLOBAL NEWS OPPORTUNITY TO PRAY: Syria
"A car bomb injured 11 people during a prayer meeting in front of a Syrian Orthodox church in northern Syria. Locals in the city of Qamishli said that if the attack had happened just minutes later, people would have been emerging from the service and the number of casualties would have been much higher. The self-proclaimed Islamic State (ISIS) claimed responsibility and Christians fear they will continue to be targeted despite the declared victory over ISIS. (via icommittopray.com)." Source: Voice of the Martyrs.

Way to Pray: Pray that God will rebuild His church in Syria, adding to those who have chosen to stay despite the atrocities of recent years and renewing in them a steadfast spirit. .
MISSIONARY HIGHLIGHT: McCracken

After serving twenty-six years in Europe (many of which were spent in Athens, Greece, serving refugees), the McCracken family transitioned to life in America. Since moving back to the states in 2013, Scott and two other One Collective (formerly iTeams) members started a ministry that focuses on the holistic transformation of the "at-risk" community of Rockwood in Portland, OR. Scott also helps raise awareness about Child Sex Trafficking through presentations in schools, churches, and civic groups. With 88 languages spoken in Rockwood, the McCrackens and their team have a vision to see life in the Kingdom come to the nations in Rockwood and beyond. Scott and Vicki have five children. The youngest two, Will and Ellie, are still at home with them.

Way to Pray: The McCrackens are excited to see that several churches of different denominations and ethnicities within the Rockwood Community are coming together to serve and worship. Please pray for the Rockwood Christian Community to continue to unite and serve well those in their community who might not know Jesus.
