Rejoice with members of TEAM NAPLES (WESTERN MEDITERRANEAN CLUSTER) that they have been very warmly welcomed back to Naples (Italy) after a six-month stateside assignment. They request that we lift up the economic difficulties there. While they were gone, quite a few stores have closed – some that have been around for over a century. Ask that as Neapolitans are anxious about the economy that they will discover the perfect peace found only in the Son.

It’s LOTTIE MOON CHRISTMAS OFFERING (LMCO) season! The LMCO goal this year is $175 million. There are 864 assignments for new missionaries to fill in 2014, but the current budget is only sufficient to send 576 personnel. Please prayerfully seek the Lord’s will regarding what He would have you give to this offering. Every dollar you donate goes to cover the costs of missionaries overseas, who are working diligently to impact the world’s lostness, which is greater today than ever before. Intercede that this year’s goal will be met and even exceeded for the glory of God. Visit http://www.imb.org/main/lottie-moon/default.asp for more information, resources and ideas to promote the offering in your church.
