Sunday Highlight: August 7
For our missions prayer time, let’s pray for two of our missionaries serving in Poland. Let’s see what happened when they made a difficult decision. They are Kelvin and Elizabeth Joseph, two of the many missionaries across Europe our church supports through our Cooperative Program giving.
When COVID-19 struck Poland, much of the nation went into lockdown, just as in many other nations. Kelvin and Elizabeth prepared to return to the United States. But then they made the difficult decision to stay. That decision had some good results.
A young man Kelvin had been sharing the gospel with prayed to receive Christ. Lockdown meant Kelvin had six months to disciple the man in his new faith. The young man later organized a Bible study for a friend — and that friend also prayed to receive Christ. The two continue to meet with other missionaries for further discipling, even though the Josephs moved to another city.
Let’s pray for our missionaries, Kelvin and Elizabeth, and pray God will continue to lead them to make those difficult decisions that can have great results for the Kingdom!
