Twenty years is a long time. That’s how long it took to establish a gospel presence among a Muslim unreached people group of 10 million in South Asia.
Ministry among the people group stalled for a number of reasons. International Mission Board (IMB) workers attempted to move to the region but were unsuccessful. Other families moved to the area, but they too had to leave for various reasons.
After years of setbacks, Luciano and Sofia Serrano*, a Christian couple from Brazil, moved to the region. The Serranos are partnering with Ralph and Lovie Adair*, IMB workers who live in a neighboring region.
PRAY local Christians would be bold in sharing the gospel with the Khaleela.
ASK for discernment for the Adairs and the Serranos as they share the gospel and train local Christians.
PRAY the Lord would send more Christian workers to partner with the Serranos and Adairs.

(EDITOR’S NOTE – This year’s Week of Prayer for International Missions in the Southern Baptist Convention is Nov. 30-Dec. 6, focusing on Revelation 7:9. Gifts to the Lottie Moon offering are received through local Southern Baptist churches or online at IMB.org/lmco, where there are resources to promote the offering. This year’s goal is $175 million.)
