Jed, Matt and Anna

Good morning! I want you to do something powerful and eternal today and in the days ahead. I want you to pray for these young missionaries who are living out God's call and purpose for their lives. Read Ephesians 6:17-18. It commands us to always be praying for the saints. Pray for these young people. Your prayers will make a difference in their lives and ministries. Read about these courageous young men and woman. They are heroes in my eyes!

In this picture you see Matt, (their favorite Chick Fil A cow) and Jed. (Sorry guys, this was all google had on you!) AMRBC folks, you know who they are, but for readers from other places...Matt & Jed are serving as missionaries to the Philippines. Last February, they went to deliver Operation Christmas Child shoe boxes and God called them to leave their teaching jobs in the US to teach in the Joy Christian Academy in Cebu, Philippines. So in July, they left everything to go and serve the Lord. Check our their blogs with the links on the right.

This is Anna. She is the niece if one of our AMRBC members. Anna is serving as a missionary in Nigeria. She is doing research for the IMB on the people groups in this region. I also have a link to her blog on the right. If you read Anna's blog, you will soon see she is right where God wants her to be. Serving God with a joyful heart and loving on the people of Nigeria.

Pray God will continue to comfort, strengthen and guide them. Pray for His Hand of protection on their lives. Pray He will use them to gather people into the Kingdom. Pray for their families. Just pray....He is listening and we need to be faithful.

You are exactly right Julie. These three young people are heroes in my eyes too. I have put their prayer cards on my fridge so I can see them and pray for them all during the day. Thanks for featuring them on your blog. They really need us to flood Heaven's gates with prayer for them.
