Join us in praying for these missionaries as they share and minister the Gospel of Jesus Christ to the nations.
Mike & Kelli Anderson
The Andersons spent their first few years analyzing the Curto language, developing literacy materials, preparing oral Bible stories, and translating the first Scripture portions to promote interest in the Gospel. Some seeds of interest began to grow. In 2013, the first Curto family began to study at the Ammi Training Center, a school where indigenous people from all over Brazil come to learn about God. Although the Curto family came to Ammi primarily seeking physical safety, they soon found safety for their souls as one-by-one, the entire family came to know Christ. The Curto church is growing despite persecution and more new believers are studying God’s Word at Ammi.
In 2015, Mike and Kelli moved to the Ammi Training Center and currently serve by teaching, discipling and working alongside these new Curto believers, as well as students from other language groups. They also help lead mission teams both going out from Ammi to local villages and receiving teams from the States to serve at Ammi.
Brent & Lindsay Wright
Warm Springs, OR
Due to Covid restrictions, their ministry focus has shifted and they are currently ministering in Madras and the surrounding towns. They desire to return to Warm Springs, Lord willing and resume their ministry there.
Since they began, Brent’s goal in Warm Springs has been to maintain the example of Athey Creek by teaching verse-by-verse through the Bible and to follow the Acts 2:42 model of worship, prayer and fellowship. While serving in Warm Springs, the Wrights had the opportunity to minister to tribal members and hear some of their accusations and misgivings, learn from them, and share the real love of Christ. Because of abuses and freedoms taken from the tribal members by past missionaries in the name of Christian service, a deep mistrust of Christians has developed.
Alissa serves as a nurse in the maxillofacial ward serving patients after restorative surgeries for cleft lips and palates, dental tumors, and others. She also serves as a Nurse Ward Educator who supports and disciples other international nurses and encourages them in the truth of His Word and the love of our Savior.
These missionaries must remain anonymous because of the countries and circumstances in which they are serving. Please keep in prayer:
Athey Creek partners with a family who has served in Central Asia for over a decade. They have been able to use their businesses to further the Gospel, lead bible studies, and share the love of Jesus. Please pray for border restrictions, opportunities to open for good discussions, and their businesses to provide a way to share the Lord.
This missionary has served in the Middle East for many years as an English teacher, but his ultimate focus is witnessing and sharing the gospel. He uses his classes as a way to initiate conversations about faith and form relationships. He regularly shares “stories of hope” in a newsletter with those of us praying for him back home.
We have an Athey Creeker serving overseas in an undisclosed area to share the Good News of Jesus. She is part of a larger team ministering there in hopes of speaking the truth and love of Jesus to a nearly all Muslim demographic. Please pray for language, an understanding of the culture, safety, and provision.
