7, 8, & 9 We are so thankful that the Lord has given our little church in Zlín a faithful group of Sunday school teachers. Just as few weeks ago, we held our first-ever teacher training meeting. God has provided a group of dedicated and eager teachers, some of whom are teenagers.

April 2018

1, 2, & 3 The angel said to the women, “Do not be afraid; for I know that you are looking for Jesus who has been crucified. He is not here, for He has risen, just as He said.” Jesus rose up from the grave, giving us full assurance that he finished his redemptive work on the cross and he holds the keys of death and hell. Hallelujah!

4, 5, & 6 – Please give thanks with us for our Friday Bible studies. This twice-monthly meeting has been an encouragement and blessing for the church and for our missionary team.

7, 8, & 9 – Please pray with us for our Sunday school teachers as they study and teach God’s word to our children. Pray that the Lord will cause his word to penetrate deeply into their young hearts and bear much fruit in their lives.

10, 11, & 12 – We are very eager to see what the Lord will do during our discipleship week for teens this year. Last summer we saw a young lady take her first steps toward Christ. Please pray that we would see Him at work again this year.

13, 14, & 15 – Please pray with us as we desire to work faithfully day by day. As in all kingdom building efforts, we experience great joys and deep struggles. Pray that the word of the Lord will accomplish great things among us.

16, 17, & 18 – Please pray for our team as the pace of life and work quickens with the approach of summer. We enjoy the ministry we are privileged to do in this season, but we need to be diligent pursue the Lord in this busy time, so we do what we do in his strength and not our own.

19, 20, & 21 – Please pray with us for the marriages in our church in Zlín. Pray for soft hearts toward God and toward each other.

22, 23, & 24 – We are thankful that the Lord has provided visas for our Russian friends. They have been interested in our little church since last spring and we are hopeful that they will continue to move closer.

25, 26, &, 27 – Please pray for the elders of the church as they continue to make pastoral visits to church families. Pray that they will be able to encourage and exhort the families to pursue God in their lives at home, at school, and at work.

28, 29 &, 30 – Please pray for Evan and Miriam as they return to Zlín early next month. Pray for a quick adjustment, especially for Evan as he re-enters the Czech school system. Pray that the homeschooling Miriam has done with him would bear fruit.
