  • Pray for JD. Having 10-15 different nationalities in one classroom creates unique learning opportunities and teaching challenges. Pray that he and his students would humbly learn from each other and discern our own cultural biases in the interpretation of Scripture.
  • Pray for Alice as the Lord leads her to discern further ministry opportunities in Europe.
  • Pray for our children living cross-culturally that they would be rooted in the gospel of grace and be a light and a blessing to those around them.
