Grant and Deb are missionaries to the Caspian Lands.
- Pray for the continued efforts from the trip that was made in February. The first half of the trip was in the country of Georgia, to meet with church planters involved with digital outreach and Bible distribution across the Caspian. Then the crossed into the Caspian to connect with ministry and church leaders to formulate a strategy to move forward with the mapping project.
- There was a groundswell of excitement after Septembers GACX Global Forum in Orlando FL and leaders found common ground to work together! In Nepal, over 100 pastors gathered two weeks after the Forum to form a GACX Expression, and His spirit of collaboration has sprung up in other places like Pakistan, Chad, Togo, India, Panama, Burkina Faso, Philippines, Ethiopia, and more. Pray God would build His church through these continuing efforts.
- Grant and his team are now gathering a team of locals and expats to collect and input data to identify those places that are still unreached in the Caspian. With nearly 6,000 villages and 4,000 city districts, the task is great. Please pray as they network among churches and mission organizations that this information would foster a spirit of unity and strategic sowing.
- Grant and Deb thank God for Bethel’s partnership. Pray that God will use their efforts to build His kingdom in the Caspian and among the least-reached.
