Missionary News Updates

  • Please pray for our Mexico Mission Trip members as they traveled there yesterday.  Pray for safety and God’s blessing on all their ministries. You can find the full list of team members and their prayer requests here.
  • March Update from Brian Glunt in Thailand -“Sometimes it is easy to get caught up in the ‘we need to do more’ mentality. If you only focus on this, you might miss the fact that 3 years ago we had little staff and the kids were just running around, screaming as they played (chaos), but now the kids are coming to the program. They are still loud, but it is because they are practicing their Bible verses in Thai, English and Chinese! In a couple months we will add Spanish to their list.  Please pray that these little ones (Matt.18:10) will come to Christ.” – Brian Glunt at The Good Soil Community Center in Thailand, UB Global. See the Glunts’ Newsletter here.

  • Please continue to pray for our sister churches in Haiti.  
  • Please pray for our Young Adult Mexico Mission Trip members as they prepare to leave in May.

May Memory Verse:

Instead, speaking the truth in love, we will grow to become in every respect the mature body of him who is the head, that is, Christ.
– Ephesians 4:15
