  3. A new church for drug addicts and their families has started and the meetings are going well. Pray for the family members, that their lives will be transformed.

  5. Praise God for the gift of His Son, Jesus, and for His Resurrection that brings new life and hope to all who believe.
  6. Esther & Gjerji Renja, Albania: “Praise God our garage is nearly turned into the church.” Although church is made up of people, may this garage be a place of welcome for many.

  13. Plamen Borisov, Bulgaria: The church is renting a larger hall for the children’s work. Pray that each child might be responsive to teachings and know an intimate relationship with God.
  14. Plamen and his wife Kremi minister to the church alone, but want help. Pray God blesses them with a family or others to share the workload.

  17. Anatoli is overloaded with work and needs help with delegating responsibilities. Pray volunteers, within the church, will feel called to generously respond to different church needs.
  18. The employment rate is extremely low in Svishtov. Pray for God’s provision and guidance as people seek to make ends meet. Pray for Anatoli as he encourages people in their lives.
