People everywhere need the Lord. He changes lives and gives purpose and hope.
Pray and ask God what He would have you give to help these missionaries reach their communities with the gospel of Jesus Christ.
Jonathon and Gina Woodward are church planters in Northfield MN. They ask that we pray for evangelistic opportunities and for non-Christians to embrace Jesus by faith. And pray that their members will grow in love for Jesus.
Pray for Ivey and Allie Rhodes who are church planters in Mosaic Boston Jamaica Plain, Boston, MA. Pray that they will be faithful, courageous and bold in preaching the gospel in a neighborhood that doesn't care. Pray that even though the neighborhood doesn't love the Rhodes, that the neighborhood will never wonder if the Rhodes love them.
Corbin and Allie Hobbs are church planters in Denver, CO. Pray for a gospel movement in Denver started by a unified church that is full of love and compassion for one another. Pray for unity among the membership of The Heights Chuch and leaders for the sake of Jesus' mission.
Pray for Linda Vogel, Hospice Chaplain in Houston, TX. She thanks God for the many He is snatching from the fire and asks us to pray the Holy Spirit will draw many more to Christ in those final hours of life on earth and that she will be that vessel of hope, comfort and encouragement.
Annie Walker Armstrong was born in Baltimore, Maryland. Her great-great-grandfather Henry Satre helped establish the first Baptist church in Maryland. At the age of 20, she accepted Christ as her Savior, having a born again experience and sensing God's call to be a missionary. She worked with various Baltimore missionary organizations ministering to orphans, African Americans, Native Americans, Chinese Americans immigrants, and indigent women and families. In 1888, Annie led the creation of the Woman's Missionary Union, helping draft the constitution and serving as its first correspondent secretary. She facilitated communication between denominational leaders, local congregations and missionaries on the field by handwriting 18,000 letters in one year alone. She refused a salary and traveled extensively at her own expense on behalf of the WMU. A tireless advocate for missionaries, she rallied the churches to support mission work through prayer and sacrificial giving. She personally visited missionaries throughout the U.S. and carried their stories back to the churches and state conventions through her eye witness accounts and by circulating their letters. It was due to the efforts of Annie and the women of WMU that the annual Easter mission offering was established in the Southern Baptist Churches in 1895. In 1934, WMU recognized her lifetime of work by naming the annual Easter offering for home missions in her honor. Thus, the Annie Armstrong Easter Offering was born with every dollar going to support missions work throughout the U.S. and Canada.
