Day 8, the final day of the Week of Prayer for International Missions focuses on the growth and multiplication of churches in Czechia. It really is an amazing story that illustrates God’s hand in our lives. He sent a couple from IMB, the Lewis’* to this country where “Only 29% of the population acknowledges the existence of a god and less than 1% choose to follow Jesus. In fact, Czechia is well known for being the most irreligious country in Europe.” Then, God sent them a Pastor named Daniel. Their church grew from a small home-based Bible study into a “vibrant Czech-speaking church that is planting other churches,” named Mozaika.

Whenever anyone from their church moves away, the Lewis’ and Pastor Daniel work beside them to plant a church in their new location. To date, they’ve planted five churches throughout Czechia. They’ve been able to continue to grow in this manner even through the pandemic. The church members are enthusiastic about this vision and are eager to help.

Pray for:

  • The Lewises and Daniel as they lead Mozaika and for the leaders of other new churches beginning in surrounding cities.
  • The Bible training center for pastors and for the ten men who are training for future ministry.
  • Two new IMB families coming to join the work in Czechia this year.

Bible Verse of the Day:

Also I heard the voice of the Lord, saying:
“Whom shall I send,
And who will go for Us?”
Then I said, “Here am I! Send me.”
Isaiah 6:8 NKJV
