Hello! This is Elizabeth Horn and Angelo Rivera, missionaries with Urban Encounter Ministries in Columbus, Ohio whose mission is to bring the light of Christ into the darkness of the inner city— where crime, drugs and prostitution dominates. In this past mission year, we have seen God work not only in signs and wonders within this community, but have had our own hearts transformed in love for his children.
One of the ways we serve with Urban Encounter is through training others on how to evangelize. We first met Avodah when we did a training on their farm. When walking through the doors, there was an instant peace and presence of God that fell on us. Their ministry’s intentionality with the individual's heart truly witnessed the love of God and how to serve everyone with that love. In this process of transitioning into new opportunities with mission, Avodah has shown us hospitality in welcoming us into their home and ministry.
This summer we have an anointed opportunity to serve the Lord as missionaries in Egypt, spreading the Gospel of Jesus Christ to all by the power of the Holy Spirit and to bring greater glory to God. Our desire is that all would come to know the saving love and power of Jesus Christ. God has called us to share that love with the people of Islam and all we encounter.
Our mission is simple— to make disciples of all nations. In order to do that we are asking for your prayers and financial support. We desire to bless the people we will be sharing the Gospel with financially and spiritually. We would be blessed by any assistance you are able to offer to support this mission—opening the hearts and minds of the Egyptian people to the good news of Jesus!
Be assured of our prayers for you and may God bless you and keep you, may his face shine upon you and give you peace.
