Pray for Nora and Pieter Kalkman helping volunteers minister to the church in Europe and the Middle East.
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 front- lines of ministry while identifying STM opportun-ities 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.
