Reports continue coming in from Go Now Missionaries around the world. They’re encountering difficulties, but God is helping them overcome them. Please be in prayer for these students and each person they come in contact with.
Here are some of the stories:
Samantha, (TAMU-Corpus) New Mexico, “I took some time to pray over the bunk beds of all the campers. I can’t even begin to express the transformation that took place. We started having girls step up as leaders, wanting to answer questions and wanting to read the next few scripture verses. It doesn’t seem like that big of a deal, but we had gone from almost complete silence all the way to conversation within about 2 days. Only God could have done that.”
Sheroke, (TTU) Mission Arlington, “One thing I have learned about Him since arriving on the field is that miracles happen everyday. People will tell us they need something and the next day it will be there.”
Dominique, (CCC) Tennessee, Deaf Camp “Each kid that comes to this camp has their own experiences that I’m trying to learn about so I can mold myself to better relate to them. Some of the kids have language and mental setbacks, so I’m praying that even through this difficulty the Lord would use us to reach them. I’m praying that we would be vessels for the Lord to use our gifts and knowledge to reach and help them.”
Matthew, (TTU) Nigeria, “One of the greatest things I have seen God do is answer prayer in front of my eyes. Seeing God work in that way has been a major blessing.”
Trevor, (HPU) Middle East, “Islam dominates this area of the world. The towers of mosques penetrate the sky in every valley and hill of this city. From the balcony of my room, I can see seven different mosques. The calls to prayer continue to sound regularly, and at night the towers eerily glow in green so as to be found easily. Today is Friday and these buildings are packed as hundreds of men filed into each mosque. But despite all of these things, God continues to work! God continues to speak to us and we are reminded all the more of the need to pray for this region. No matter how daunting the task may seem, we continue to find strength in Christ and seek to bring change one relationship at a time.”
April, (SFA) Philadelphia, “One of the meaningful experiences I have had the past couple of weeks has been worshiping with a Russian church in one of the suburbs of Philadelphia. It was really neat to meet and share with the members of the church there and to see how they worship and go about reaching other Russians in their community. The songs were all in Russian, but some of the tunes were familiar, so we would sing them in English. At the end of the service, five or six people came to know Christ as their personal Savior. It was such a good reminder that God is the God of all nations, and he accepts our praise and wants to have an intimate relationship with us no matter the color of our skin, the language we speak, or the kind of food we prepare.”
