Here’s a preview of the stories for this year’s Week of Prayer for North American Missions, set for March 7–14:
More than 300,000 South Asians call the Greater Vancouver area home, many of them Sikhs and Hindus. Shahid and Maroofa Kamal are doing their best to show them that they don’t need many gods or gurus — just the one true God.
In east Atlanta, racial and socioeconomic tensions are high. But Ryan and Tricia McCammack are seeing God bring reconciliation in their multicultural church plant.
Victor and Ludmila Moura had a comfortable life in Brazil but felt God calling them to leave it all to plant a church for Brazilians in Boston.
Anders and Jessica Snyder believe that when God takes a dying church and revives it, it can be a picture of resurrection to the community. They’re seeing that happen in Nampa, Idaho, where they’re leading a church “replant” and seeing lives changed.
Joshua Valdez says youth in his area — which is mostly Hispanic and Navajo — struggle with hopelessness. Hunger, substance abuse and suicide are rampant. But he’s seeing Jesus change lives through Bible studies at his church plant in Farmington, New Mexico.
Parts of New Orleans feel “forgotten” — they’ve taken a long time to rebuild, or even get a grocery store back, since Hurricane Katrina. So Bobby and LaKeisha Williams are investing their lives to connect the community with needed resources and new hope in Jesus.
God rescued Jacob Zailan out of a cycle of using drugs, selling drugs and doing time. Now he’s taking the gospel to the streets of Sanger, California, to reach people stuck in the same kind of life — people who “would scare people who go to most churches.”
