We are grateful to those who faithfully pray for the work of SGA - churches, prayer groups and individuals - throughout the UK, Ireland and beyond. We are always concerned to see our ‘prayer base’ strengthened.

Much prayer - much power; little prayer - little power!

Wednesday 21 April

Violetta Faragau works among drug addicts in Romania through the ‘Preventis’ programme. She recently wrote “Having a communist heritage, in Romania the addicts were considered weak, bad and not useful for society. But when we manage to see the person behind his/her addiction, to reach them with grace and to confront them with truth, we see change happening.” May God bless this vital work for His glory.

It is hoped to hold a mission school session in Romania over the next week, with Pastor Gigi Dobrin providing ministry and teaching. Please pray that this will be enabled to go ahead and that all who gather might be blessed.

Anton Plotnikov is one of SGA’s 70th Anniversary missionary pastors in FE Russia. Since beginning his church planting work, the ministry has grown. He started in the home of one family before moving the church to his 2-room flat. Remember this young church as they try to rent a proper church building, and as Anton seeks to help those in a local rehabilitation centre caught up in the cycle of drug abuse.
