As we begin the 40 days of prayer let us remember our missionaries, and our brothers and sisters that are undergoing intensive persecution. Several of the missionaries I communicate with are in limbo now, unable to go back to the countries here they are ministering, or in some cases restricted in their itineration efforts. LET’S KEEP THEM IN OUR PRAYERS!!
David A. & Shirley Swafford
Personal communications with the Swaffords ”We are teaching in 6 nations in Coastal South America and the West Indies through the ministry of the Caribbean School of Theology of which I am the Academic Dean. Since the Pandemic, our student numbers have gone up, not down. We now we are live streaming all our classes and teaching students in multiple nations at the same time. For example, we just finished a live stream class that had 31 students from Suriname and 16 students from Guyana. Normally we would have needed to travel to both nations at different times to do this. Also, I just taught 17 students from several locations including Jamaica & Belize. God has a way of making the negatives into positives and He does not know the word defeat, Amen! God bless everyone for your prayers and financial support as we CONTINUE the mission work the Lord has assigned us.” David Swafford

Please look at the short video about Christian persecution. By Open Doors
260 million Christians in the world experience high levels of persecution for their choice to follow Christ.
LET US PRAY AS IF THIS WAS OUR OWN PERSECUTION!!
