Friday we will be having six baptisms. Please pray for these new believers.
1. Please pray for their safety. It is not uncommon for families to reject those who come to Christ. We have seen this become violent in the past. Please pray for God’s protection over these young believers. Already one man was told by his family (who are still in Central Asia) never to return home, because they could not accept him as a follower of Jesus.
2. Please pray that their faith matures and blossoms. Many of these new believers will not be in Greece for much longer (August is a very popular time to attempt to cross the boarder, blending in with the mass of tourists). Pray that they will find strong, believing church communities in whatever countries they find themselves. Please pray that God would raise these young men up into quality spiritual leaders, who will have an influence for the Kingdom in their home cultures.
3. Please join us in praying for God’s continued movement among people from this part of the world (Central and Western Asia)!
