This field on the southern Oregon Coast has been served by Village Missions since the church began in 1959. The region is still struggling to transition from a timber and fishing economy to one supported by tourism. The percentage of those who need to hear the Good News of Christ is among the highest in the nation. In the face of soaring rates of poverty, abuse and addiction, the Gospel offers the only real hope, and one-by-one people are turning to Christ. Pray for those turning to Christ out of brokenness.
Pray for freedom from addiction and healing of the wounds of the past. Pray for those taking steps of spiritual growth by connecting with a Growth Group for the first time. Pray that they will take the joyful risk of doing what Scripture teaches. Pray for great wisdom in managing the resources the Lord provides. Pray that those who follow Christ will have a winsome influence on our communities.
