Missionary Moment

Missionary Moment

This week we are praying for Fabian and Melissa Portunato. Fabian and Melissa have planted Revolution Church in Miami, Florida and are working hard to reach people for Christ. Fabian says he looks for opportunities to share the Gospel all the time, especially when he does not expect them. Along with his church ministry, Fabian holds down a full-time job, mainly because he can tell more people about Jesus. He recalls that, on the day he put up a sign announcing the church, a homeless man in his 20s came up to ask what he was doing. The church welcomed him and six months later that young man accepted Christ as Savior and was baptized. Now he regularly invites people to Revolution and tells them, “These people truly care for the least of these.” Fabian appreciates the Cooperative Program. He says, “Without the Cooperative Program, this (church) would not have come about.” He quotes Hudson Taylor, an early missionary, who said for someone to dig a well, one must dig while another holds the rope. Let us pray now for Fabian and Melissa.To learn more about praying for international missionaries, please visit www.operationworld.org

This week we’re praying for the Bondo Poraja people in India. There are 12,000 people among the Bondo Poraja people. It is unknown if there are any Christians among them with only portions of the Bible available in their language. The Bondo people suffer from extreme poverty and malnutrition. Living in a geographically tough climate, they also are hostile to outsiders. Pray that they will hear about the saving grace and hope found through a relationship with Christ.
