The figures are skyrocketing. A raging pandemic, coronavirus or COVID-19, is traveling with lightening speed across the globe. But there is another plague that is racing even faster. It has infected more people than those afflicted with the coronavirus. As serious as the coronavirus is, and it is serious, there is something else that is deadlier—fear. Fear, anxiety, and worry impact our immune systems, strangle our joy, and rob us of hope.
Anatoly promised God to work as a pastor after being healed of a long illness in Kazakhstan, but he didn’t have any hope of entering the seminary. He came from a poor family in an impoverished village, and he had no money. Reluctantly, Anatoly moved to Russia to work. “God what do you want from me?” he prayed daily.
Two pioneer missionaries ventured out into the community from their 165-square-foot home, which doubled as a house church. The prospect of sharing Jesus filled them with joy. One day a neighborhood couple, Mr. and Mrs. Guo,* invited the missionaries along with a small band of Adventists to worship in their home. The group gratefully accepted the offer and gathered for Bible study and church services in a room that had previously been used as a shrine—a place where the family worshiped and prayed for dead relatives...
Last month I went to prison. Actually, I have been going fairly often since one of my congregations conducts prison ministry in the correctional facility in town.

We moved everyone into the fellowship hall for our Sabbath worship service so that the rest of the church could experience 10 Days of Prayer with it’s fellowship, prayer, singing, and testimonies in small groups.
Our 10 Days of Prayer and the all-night prayer session was a blessing. Usually the ending of the all-night begins to slow down. But this time the last couple of hours (led by young people who shared their testimonies) were really powerful!
This was our first time participating in the Ten Days of Prayer. During the ten days, we had a 24-hour prayer chain. Basically, one person prays for an hour and at the end of the hour calls the next prayer warrior to pray. I am in awe of what God did. Chains of anger, unforgiveness, and many more were broken. We are enjoying unity in our church. The twenty-four prayer team members have asked me to keep the team. To God be the glory!
Thank you so much for 10 Days of Prayer. We joined this program in 2013. We wanted to let you know the amazing things that have happened to our church since then. It is revived and growing little by little. Member interest in soul winning activity is growing.
