GLOBAL NEWS OPPORTUNITY TO PRAY: Tunisia
"In Tunisia, evangelical Christians number approximately one-tenth of one percent. Though the constitution guarantees freedom of religion, it also states that Islam is the 'religion of the state.' Tunisian Muslims who leave Islam to follow Jesus face persecution from family, friends, and the community, and the opposition sometimes turns violent. These new believers often experience loneliness and have few opportunities for fellowship and worship with other Christians. (via Frontline Missions)" Source: Frontline Missions.

Way to Pray:  Please pray for grace for our sisters and brothers in Tunisia to stand for Christ in these difficult circumstances.
MISSIONARY HIGHLIGHT: Joy Anglea

The Lord called Joy into missions in 1996, after working as a family physician for 13 years in Greenville and while a member at Fellowship Greenville. She first served as a missionary on the island of Guam, reaching into Micronesia with medical mission teams, until she was called to serve as the Medical Director at the home office of Baptist Mid-Missions in Cleveland, OH. She has a variety of ministries, including organizing medical mission teams to various countries, assisting missionaries with their health needs, and serving on the crisis management team for the mission family.

Also, if you are a nurse and are looking to serve internationally, Joy needs nurses for an upcoming medical mission trip to Cambodia. For more information, check out her recent newsletter.

Way to Pray: Pray for God’s wisdom in advising missionaries with significant health challenges. Pray for God’s direction in planning future medical mission trips. Pray as I balance work/ministry with caring for my mother’s health needs.
