2022 EBO Day 7 -LRBA Afghan Relief
The Louisville Regional Baptist Association’s Afghan Relief Efforts focus on networking associational churches to serve initially through food distribution and becoming welcoming teams for the families that arrived over the early months or resettlement. Your EBO dollars were invested into welcome baskets for the families that allowed them to initially stock up their homes and get a few extra amenities that would make it feel more comfortable. Though that portion of the work has come to a close for now (due to other support and employment opportunities), many of those families still have teams from LRBA churches serving them and building relationships.
A remarkable part of this process has been that God has brought about 22 Afghan Christians to Louisville and we are now working with leaders to help them find a place to gather for worship and fellowship. Most have been attending LRBA churches but would like to begin worshipping together. The testimonies of these believers and the persecution and certain abuse they escaped is harrowing and evidence of the remarkable grace of God in their lives.
HOW TO PRAY FOR LRBA AFGHAN RELIEF EFFORTS
• Pray for basic needs of life, jobs, and language learning to progress for all the families for the purpose of the gospel.
• Pray that relationships of trust form and grow. Pray that seekers feel comfortable asking and find suitable answers. Pray the Holy Spirit will open hearts like He did for Lydia in Acts 16.
• Pray for the burgeoning Afghan Church. Pray for support and strength as these Afghan believers cooperate that they may establish great inroads for the Kingdom of God. Pray that through these Afghan believers and their partnership with American believers that many Afghans would come to Christ and become disciples joining in worship.
