Give thanks for the growing partnership, for the work of Ian Britton and John Claydon in developing this relationship, and for the work of Lina Toth (formerly Andronoviene) and Irmantas Pinkoritis in their warm and helpful responses to us. May God bless all the Baptist churches in Lithuania and enable them to be more effective and powerful as salt and light in their communities.
Please pray for:
God's blessing and deepening of our mission partnership with the Baptist Union of Lithuania. On 16th June, five folk from the Association and Northern Baptist College will be travelling to Lithuania for a week, visiting five churches to preach and teach about mission.
the team: Paul Revill, Bill Clegg and Alistair Menzies from the NBA and Andrew Phillips and Lanre Banwo from Northern College - for God's protection, for him to use the team greatly as they meet and share faith with folk from the Lithuanian churches; and also that they will gel well into a team - they will not have met as a whole team until the flight out to Lithuania.
the Lithuanian churches, that they will be encouraged and stimulated further in thinking and practice of mission.
our relationship with the Lithuanian churches, to move towards a new phase where we engage in more mission to those beyond the churches, not just supporting and encouraging those within the churches.
Ask God for his hand of protection to be upon the whole country, which is increasingly feeling insecure with Russia as a near neighbour, based upon the intervention in the Ukraine.
