One Day in London With Liz Crusey (VIDEO)

By Franklin Beaver, Nov 14, 2023

MTW missionary Liz Crusey starts her Tuesday mornings hosting the women’s Bible study for Immanuel Church in Brentford, West London. Today she’s not just hosting, she’s leading. As she prepares, her husband, Todd, drops their 6-year-old son off at school. After Bible study, Liz heads out to Hounslow by public transport to teach ESL at Hounslow Town Church. Hounslow is one of the first places that asylees, refugees, and displaced people move when they come to the UK. Liz’s welcoming demeanor opens doors for meaningful conversations and relationships across West London.

Join us as MTW missionary Liz Crusey leads us through one day in London and get a peek into a day in her life as a missionary.

My Critical Breakfast Guest

Over breakfast she criticized the meal, our home, and my hair. I didn’t want to invite her back. In that moment my heart was revealed.


The Coming Tide of Faith in Europe

Across Europe missionaries are watching the Spirit move with a rapidly accelerating pace as God opens door after door.


Give thanks to God for a movement of the Spirit spreading across Europe opening doors that have been long-shut.

Pray for the declining Church in Europe. Many see Europe as post-Christian and without hope. But we know that Christ will build His church.

Pray for Europeans who have heard the gospel but are hesitant to fully commit to Christ. Pray that God would draw them to Himself.

Pray for two women, Monika and Andrea, who have recently come to faith against the odds in a hard-to-reach, largely atheistic European city.

Pray for Monika, that God would continue to heal her, give her a new purpose, and protect her life from physical harm, and for Andrea, that she would grow deep roots of faith and be a witness to those like her—unlikely subjects—of the reality of the grace of God.

Pray for a small church in Athens, Greece that is reaching out to refugees with the love of Christ. Pray for the refugees there to hear the truth of the gospel. 

Pray for an Italian couple returning to their home country to church plant. 

Pray for ongoing work among refugees in Greece. 

Pray for MTW Ukraine's publishing ministry, translating and publishing Reformed materials in Ukrainian to equip pastors and laypeople in the Church.

Pray for the people of Mati, Greece, who are responding with spiritual openness following disaster response efforts of the Greek Evangelical Church and MTW. 

Pray for Spaniards in Madrid, a deeply secular, post-Christian environment where the Church is despised due to past atrocities.
