World Missions received a touching email from Missionary Kelly Myers in Prague, Czech Republic:
“I write to you today from Prague with a heavy heart. It has been difficult to see the news in the U.S. the past few weeks. I have been praying for everyone affected by the hurricanes and continue to pray for rebuilding efforts. If you or a loved one you know has been affected by this, I am so sorry. There is not much like a huge natural disaster to make us feel completely helpless and overwhelmed. And yet, we trust God to help us carry on and help carry the burdens of those in need right now. May God give us all strength and grace to pray and help where we can in this difficult time. May the God of peace and mercy be ever close to you.”
As much as the Church of God prays for its missionaries, how encouraging it is to know they are in earnest prayer for us, as well. Many of them have experienced drastic situations and know exactly how to pray. We thank God for them and the work they accomplish on the field.
Kelly says that recently they experienced the largest gathering of Christians in the Czech Republic (that they know of) since communism fell 28 years ago! Awakening Europe held a conference specifically called “Awakening Prague” that was within walking distance of Kelly’s flat. Up to 12,000 believers gathered in one area! Amazing. At the end of the conference, Missionary/Pastor Jerry Lillard, also the overseer, prayed over the city and country that many would come to know God personally.
Thank God for His hand that is resting upon the Czech Republic!
