Ephesians 2:8-9 "For by grace you have been saved through faith and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God, not of works, lest anyone should boast"

TODAY WE REMEMBER THE MISSIONARY. There are many independent missionaries serving in Africa and around the world. Some serve long-term, living away from family and 
friends for years, only returning home for brief periods of time.

REMEMBER to pray for missionaries at your local church and those serving with independent organizations-those not affiliated with and subsequently regularly funded by a Christian denomination. Independent missions truly operate by faith, not knowing where their funding will come from but depending on the Lord to provide.   Some of the more well known: Wylcliffe Bible Translators, Mission Aviation Fellowship, and Global Outreach-there are over 1000 around the world and  thousands of missionaries serving. They ALL need and feel your prayers.
