CURRENT PRAYER REQUEST

Pray for "Petrus," Who Received Christian Movies from Front-Line Workers

Bosnia and Herzegovina

Two front-line workers gave Christian movies to a gas-station attendant while on a trip to distribute Christian literature in Bosnia and Herzegovina. The workers had stopped at the gas station in the early morning hours, and “Petrus,” a store worker, came out to inform them that they had overpaid by about 30 cents. Impressed by Petrus’s integrity, the Christians began a conversation with him about God. Petrus was open to hearing about the gospel and invited the two men to return for a future visit. He also accepted two Christian movies, including Jesus: He Lived Among Us. Pray for Petrus, and pray that the Christian workers will be able to meet with him again. Pray also for the workers as they distribute Christian literature in an area hostile to the gospel.
