Nora and Pieter are regional missionaries serving as coordinators of short-term mission (STM) with the European Baptist Federation. They facilitate life-changing mission experiences by matching the interests of volunteers with the needs of the 50+ Baptist conventions in Europe and the Middle East. With only 2.5% Evangelical Christians, Europe is a priority mission field. Nora and Pieter travel extensively, roaming the frontlines of ministry while identifying STM opportunities for groups and individuals to effectively multiply mission efforts.
They write – Here are our prayer requests –
- For our walk with God, that we may grow in faith and reflect God’s glory in our daily pilgrimage.
- For safe travels and wisdom from above while we are assessing projects and matching volunteers’ skills with the various tasks and needs.
- For more volunteers for Vacation Bible Schools and English-as-a-second-language summer camps.
- For opportunities to share the gospel (in an atheist context) in the outreach program at Logos Language Program in Prague.
- For our light construction projects: helping a young church comprised partly of Iranian refugees in Vienna with a newly obtained ballroom sanctuary and outreach facility.
- For our work with churches in various countries in their refugee outreaches, aid projects and relief work.
