Mission Focus

Each week we are asking our congregation to be in prayer for one of our supported missionaries or local mission agency. This week we ask that we each bring Mike and Katie Lucero and their three children to God in prayer.

Mike administers an international school in Southeast Asia that started up again on August 12th. It has been challenging - juggling cultural difficulties and communicating with families and staff that had been dispersed around the world, and not knowing if visas would be approved for those returning to the country.
 
The Luceros report that they are several weeks into doing school “online” and all is going well - much better than anticipated. They are thankful for teachers who are not in country and still teaching online at odd hours between time zones to keep their school going forward. 
 
Let’s pray for Mike, Katie, and their children—Eli (12), Kerith (10), and Zephaniah (2 ½).  Here are their specific prayer requests:

  • Pray for their teammates to be able to rejoin them in country - Mike and Katie indicate they could really use their support. The delay has to do with COVID impacts on both fundraising and securing visas.
  • Pray for continued health and safety for their family.
  • Pray for perseverance in such an odd, stressful, and uncertain time - to remain in God and honor His calling.
  • Pray for Katie’s ability to support the national office, given the challenges of scheduling time while helping the kids at home.
