To celebrate the 500th anniversary of the Reformation in Europe the Evangelical churches in my area have organised a series of events throughout this year. It was a joy to be at the first of these events and to see churches around the region coming together to celebrate.
Our church had a women's retreat early February. I was asked to share a small refection from the Bible. It'll was my first time sharing in Spanish with the Church Women - exciting but a little nerve wracking too!
It’s clear here that prayer is key in seeing any church planting work spring up and community transformation take place. Recently a group of us have begun investigating how we can pray in a more informed way for our region through prayer and historical research. I’m part of a group which meets weekly to prayer walk around a particular suburb of the city. It's one of the highlights of my week to be learning with these women and to encourage one another to be persistent pray-ers.
Please be praying for more people to catch this vision for prayer and for others to join our small prayer and research group. Also pray for God to be working in the hearts of my non believing friends, making them curious and soft towards him. And give thanks for the Reformation celebrations the year and for the churches in this region who are meeting together during the year.
I keep being thankful to God for your prayer and support in other ways. Thank you!
