"Cast your burden on the Lord, and he will sustain you."

MCBC

- Please continue to be in prayer for the 6-week series "Who Is This Man?"; that we might build healthy community, that we might grow deeply in our faith, and that we might be a light to our world around us.

OPERATION CHRISTMAS CHILD

- Please continue to pray that God will show His presence in a powerful way as shoeboxes are collected around the country and that Operation Christmas Child will bring hope, joy and the love of Christ to the children who receive a shoebox, and to their families and communities. "Sing to the Lord a new song, for he has done marvelous things." - Psalm 98:1a

PERSECUTED CHURCH

Check www.persecution.net for weekly updates of ‘The Persecution & Prayer Alert – The Voice of the Martyrs’.

PRAYER WARRIORS NETWORK – Art & Antonia W (Monthly updates available on Mission Board in the foyer.)
     *TUNISIA – It is social shame in Tunisia not to be married by the age of twenty. Many young Christian women and young men face enormous pressure from their families to marry non-Christians. Pray for the Lord to help these young people to deal with this issue.

This is the plea of persecuted Christians around the world. Today around the world over 200 million are suffering for their faith in Jesus Christ. Each year, Canadians join with Christians in over 130 countries to stand in prayer with our suffering sisters and brothers for the International Day of Prayer for the Persecuted Church (IDOP).

Persecuted Church – Did you know?

An estimated 100 million Christians are murdered, assaulted, raped, tortured, beaten, abducted, forced to flee as internal, and external refugees.
Many Christians are forced to be secret believers, unable to declare their faith openly, and cannot get help from churches because their presence will jeopardize the safety of churches.
Persecution is growing and expanding in Africa, Chechnya, Dagestan, Ingushetia, Russia, Mexico, Venezuela and Peru.
Christian radio stations like Trans World Radio, HCJB Global Radio, and Far Eastern Broadcasting Association beam into persecuting areas to encourage secret believers.
Persecuted Christians face job discrimination, and lose educational opportunities.
