Burdens related to Europe (week of 3 September 2017)
1) Federal election in Germany (24 September)
The German federal election will take place on 24 September. The results will decide the next German Chancellor. Please pray for the Lord’s will to be done in this election. Additional information can be found at German Federal Election.
2) The Lord’s move in Germany
A number who have recently emigrated to Germany have found jobs, have found housing, have been accepted into universities, and have obtained student or work visas. For this we give thanks to the Lord. Please continue to pray:
- That those who are now in the process of emigrating to Germany will find housing and jobs (for the job-keeping full-timers) and will obtain visas to live and serve long-term in Germany.
- For the learning of the German language by the saints who have emigrated.
- For the practical strengthening and building up of the local churches in Germany and for the labor on the college campuses.
- That the Lord will send an adequate number of experienced brothers who can provide leadership to the work in Germany.
An application for those who wish to emigrate for the Lord’s move can be found on the Application page at www.lordsmove.org. Gifts to support the Lord’s move in Germany should be given to LME and designated “European Gospel Work.”
