Prayer Request of the Week 

Please pray for “The Story Project” in Audio Form. We are collecting all of our stories (biblical stories, current stories, life stories, and interpretation stories) from all eight of our modules and putting them into one complete volume. This volume will then be translated so that groups (starting in Francophone Africa) can record an audio version of the stories. This will aid in memorization and engagement with the stories. The goal is that this volume will be ready to hand off to our Francophone Africa international champions by the beginning of May.

Thank you for carrying us in prayer!

Review by Missio Nexus


Five billion people are part of communities that learn best and are most likely to be influenced through story, images, and music. And yet they are vastly under-resourced. Your gift directly impacts these leaders and creates a hopeful future in their story-centric communities.
