As we give thanks for our own blessings, let us also give thanks for our faithful missionaries who have answered the call to take God’s love and gospel to those who have not heard. Pray for encouragement for them as they seek to know and follow His lead, which often means giving up themselves and family at great cost. Pray for each by name.
