To 7-Year-Old MKs, Evangelism Is Just Life

A missionary mom serving in Australia overheard her young son and daughter talking with their 7-year-old neighborhood friend, Eden. The children first asked Eden if her dad was a Christian. She told them he didn’t believe in God. They then asked her if she knew about the Garden of Eden, as her name is Eden. She thought she’d heard of it. The missionary’s son then took out the Big Picture Story Bible and began to read her the Creation story. (He had just read it during family worship the night before.) The missionary’s daughter then told her brother that he should probably read a story about the cross, so they moved to the New Testament and read Eden the story about Jesus' crucifixion.

When the missionary asked her daughter about it later, she said that she thought Eden needed to hear about the cross if the Creation story was to really make sense. How encouraging this was to the mother! Without even being conscious of it, missionary kids are helping reach their communities for Christ. God uses your support in ways beyond our imagination.

Pray for missionary kids as they develop friendships with local children to have an impact for Christ.

Give thanks for Harbor City Church in Sydney, Australia, which is thriving with four campuses after years of struggles getting established.

Pray for team cohesion in Perth, Australia, as the team is newly brought together and doing varied and different ministries.

Pray for the next generation of students in Australia, that they would be exposed to the gospel and come to a solid faith in Christ. 

Pray for the Japanese men and women impacted by the gospel during recent homestays in the U.S. to continue in faith as they return to Japan.

Pray for the church-planting efforts of the Nagoya, Japan, team to be effective and that God would grow the Church in Japan.

Pray for those who feel called to missions, but don't yet know what or where God is calling them to. Pray for clarity, but also a resting peace in our sovereign God.

Pray for Christian creatives around the globe seeking to create art as a way to communicate the glory of God to the culture around them.

Pray for Harbor City Church in Sydney, Australia, and their mission to reach Asia. “New Australians”—second-generation immigrants and internationalized young adults of predominantly Asian descent—are the source not only of Harbor City Church’s steady growth, but also of its impact, much of it through its Student Outreach to the World ministry.

Pray for churchfreo and its daughter churches reaching both a community of artists and of "streeties."
