Missons Week, Day 5

There is something sad about admitting that our own precious country is in need of missionaries. But it is.

Today I'd like to introduce you to a family that is church-planting in a part of our country that is a spiritual desert. Until I met this family, I had no idea that there are many areas in the West where Bible-believing churches are so scarce that children can grow up never hearing God's name except as a curse word. I could hardly believe it when they spoke of meeting a young man, in a small town in Wyoming, who had no idea who Jesus was.

In America.

Our nation needs prayer. And we need to obey. Remember God's promise? If HIS people humble themselves, and pray, and seek His face, and turn from their wicked ways, THEN He will heal our land.

Sharing the gospel with others is one way of turning from our wicked ways - we are commanded to share, and if we do not, we are disobeying.

Please visit the King family's site today, and offer a prayer for them...and for our nation.

In my Church, Amber, in our Sunday school class, we are learning how to witness to people, Way of The Master style!! :) We role play and ask questions about how we should respond if people ask this. I'm learning, and hopefully the people in the class are too!
