Sunday, April 17 – Philippines
Growing up in a broken family left a young woman turning to alcohol to drown her anger and grief until an older woman persuaded her to attend a local missionary’s Bible study. After committing to follow the Lord, she has become a new creation and leaves all resentments with God in prayer. Workers focus much of their energies on such youths; one offers free guitar lessons so that he can share the gospel, while other workers have begun a Bible study as part of a Friday night event shared through Zoom due to the pandemic. Local missionaries need donations to undertake such evangelism initiatives. Pray the Lord will remove all obstacles to new Christians finding fellowship.
