OCMC News - Master’s Degree Completed

OCMC News - Master’s Degree Completed

Today we celebrate a major milestone in our ministry: Gabriela has completed her Master degree in children's and family ministry. This has been a major investment, both in time and finances over the past 3 1/2 years. Gabriela has been studying through a program at Bethel Seminary. In addition to ongoing online coursework, she has returned to Bethel twice a year for a two-week intensive program. Through this program, Gabriela has been able to complete an in-depth academic study of many aspects of the ministry to children and families that we are involved in. Gabriela has also had the opportunity to build relationships with and gain experience from classmates and faculty active in children's and family ministry around the United States. Gabriela has felt very blessed by this opportunity to learn, and we believe that it is a valuable talent entrusted to us for the necessary work here in Albania. With the completion of her academic program, Gabriela is looking forward to the opportunity to be much more active in training and equipping our staff as well as being more involved in all aspects of ministry.

Congratulations to Gabriela for her hard work, and many thanks to all of you who have supported us through this process!

Prayer for Missions

God of truth and love: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, Hear our prayer for those who do not know You. That they may come to a saving knowledge of the truth, and that Your Name may be praised among all peoples of the world. Sustain, inspire, and enlighten Your servants who bring them the Gospel. Bring fresh vigor to wavering faith; sustain our faith when it is still fragile. Continually renew missionary zeal in ourselves and in the Church, and raise up new missionaries who will follow You to the ends of the world. Make us witnesses to Your goodness full of love, full of strength, and full of faith for Your glory and the salvation of the entire world. Through the prayers of all the missionary saints, Have mercy on us and save us. Amen.
