Wednesday, January 5 – India
After the death of her husband and ongoing abuse from hostile relatives, a depressed mother decided she and her two daughters would commit suicide. Before they could attempt it, a local missionary shared about the love of Christ and prayed for her, and as she and her daughters began attending church services, they experienced the joy and peace of the Lord in their lives. They were among six people who were recently baptized. Local missionaries need donations of $60 or $120 in order to bring word of Christ’s saving sacrifice and faithfulness to people trapped in despair. Workers request prayer for good health and for strength, wisdom and courage for Christians facing growing opposition.
“…he saved us, not because of righteous things we had done, but because of his mercy. He saved us through the washing of rebirth and renewal by the Holy Spirit…” (Titus 3:5)
