Acts 16:7-9, NET
When they came to Mysia, they attempted to go into Bithynia, but the Spirit of Jesus did not allow them to do this, so they passed through Mysia and went down to Troas. A vision appeared to Paul during the night: A Macedonian man was standing there urging him, “Come over to Macedonia and help us!”

Pray for short term missionaries to clearly hear the Lord’s voice when they are called to go to a certain place or move into full time service.

Engage the Crisis-Refugee Resettlement

by Bianca Ontiveros

“I am the vine, you are the branches; he who abides in Me and I in him, he bears much fruit, for apart from Me you can do nothing.” – John 15:5, NASB
Nearly 2,000 believers banded together this past summer to reach refugees for Christ in Europe. Many of them came from different backgrounds and churches; yet all acted as branches of the vine, and all reaped much fruit.
The efforts of these teams to abide in Him produced incredible testimonies of faithfulness. A man heard the sound of worship and was delivered from demons. Family members found one another after praying for the first time. Those who did not know Christ had visions of the Savior dressed in white. Broken bones and physical ailments were healed. Both refugees and Europeans experienced the fullness of the love of God.
Beyond the miracles of these testimonies, the Lord provided services to the refugees. Trafficked women and refugees now have trauma counseling. Job training and job placement are available so refugees can start a new life in Europe. The Antioch Movement established eight bases in Europe to accomplish three goals: meet practical needs, start church planting movements, and mobilize long term church planters. They are accomplishing these things in beautiful ways!
