Global Missions

St. John's has a vibrant & active support system for our global missionaries. Some have grown out of our church and all have grown into our hearts. We support them through prayer, financial support and physical help through special events and mission trips.

Prayers for Pakistan

Our church family is committed to praying for this nation.

Located in the northern mountains of Pakistan, the Mirzakhani people group has a population of 600, all whom practice Islam. They have no access to the Bible in their language, although they do have audio and video recordings of the Jesus film. Another group located in this area are the Burusho people. The villages of the Burusho people are hundreds of feet above the Hunza River. Travel is narrow by road. Travelling could be an obstacle to the gospel. Please pray for the leader of this people group to become Christian and lead others to Jesus Christ.

Wayne & Valerie Lunsford, West Asia, Wycliffe Bible Translators  

As a teen, Valerie Lunsford (Hansel) was an active member of our St.  John's Youth Group. The Lunsfords have been serving the Lord with Wycliffe Bible Translators for over 20 years and have lived in West Asia for 17 years.  For many years they lived and worked in one country.  Now their focus has broadened to two countries, and a third, where they live.  They ask for prayers for peace to be restored in West Asia as they meet with leaders and fieldworkers who have faced some very significant crises over the past year.
Wayne completed his PhD study program in International Development.  He is involved in training and consultations with the training organization that they established many years ago. Valerie's role remains in the area of member care where she contributes to the care needs of people working in their beloved but very challenging part of the world.
Wayne and Valerie appreciate your prayers for them and their family and send their prayers  for grace and peace.
