Missionary Moment

Missionary Moment

This week we’re praying for Jeremy Taliaferro.  Training Christian leaders is an important part of missions. Jeremy is one of our missionaries serving in Uganda, in Africa. Five years ago he met a believer from South Sudan named James. For some time Jeremy trained James in church planting, spiritual disciplines and Bible storytelling. Then James went back to South Sudan.  Two years later Jeremy visited a camp in Uganda where refugees from South Sudan have fled to escape the war in their country — and he ran in to his former student, James. Imagine how happy Jeremy was when he learned James had planted six new churches among the refugees!  Already many people have come to Christ because Jeremy invested time and effort in training James.

This week we’re praying for the Awan people of Pakistan.  There are 5.5 million people among the Awan people with zero known Christians.  The Awan have been strongly and entirely Muslim for centuries.  Pray that they will hear the Gospel and that their eyes will be opened to His saving grace.  Learn more about praying for unreached people groups at  www.joshuaproject.net
