John and Abby FisherNorthern Plains


Thomas Weakley – Campus Crusade at WKU


Jacob and Cara Stevens – Portugal

We just finished up a week of distributing the 4 Gospels in the second official language of Portugal, Mirandês. We were able to visit a couple of villages, and then present the local high school with free copies of the books (as that is the only high school in Portugal that studies the language). We were also able to make great contacts with government officials and are eager to look into future outreaches in the area. Pray for the seeds that were planted, and the long work ahead to reach the Mirandesas.

Next week we are partnering with a nearby Portuguese church to use an American volunteer team for evangelism, training, and encouragement. Pray for the church in Aveiro as they reach out to the city, and for both the Americans and Portuguese to be encouraged by one another.

On a family-level, please pray for Elisabeth as she’s been having trouble sleeping well through the night. Less sleep makes for less endurance in a second culture. She’s also been slow to gain weight, which creates added stress and more doctor’s appointments. Pray for answers and wisdom, perseverance and contentment!


Justin Pate – Pastor, Redeemer Church

Pray for Redeemer as we work to finish the building for Easter. Also for planning and zoning meetings to go well and for certificate of occupancy
