Missionary Update - RUN Global - Mike & Su Keator

Yesterday ten men stormed into a church and kidnapped two gospel workers in our network, Mamun, and Nur Nabi. Mamun has the long black beard in the photo above. He used to be a Muslim and Quran teacher in a Madrasa. After he put his faith in Jesus Christ he left the Madrasa to preach the gospel. He has been leading eight training groups. Yesterday morning, he and Nur Nabi were teaching in church when ten helmeted men stormed in and took them. We do not know their whereabouts or condition.  

This happened in Bogra, Bangladesh, just 4 hours away from where Su and I are now. We are praying and ready to do whatever we can to help them and their families.

1. Pray for Mamun & Nur Nabi
2. Pray for their wives and children.
3. Pray for their captors.

Living Hope Church has a new home

Hey Evergreen-
Our church plant to Rochester has some big news!

Living Hope Church has moved to Sundays at Schaeffer Academy! After meeting for several months on Wednesday nights at Crossroads College (and hosted by Bear Creek Church) Living Hope now has a spot to gather together on Sundays. Schaeffer Academy is a Christian school with a great reputation and has been very welcoming to Living Hope. The church is excited about it's new home, enthusiastic about the ways they can use it to be welcoming to new people and eager to see how God will use it to serve and share with their neighbors on the north east side of Rochester and the city as a whole.

Sending the new church plant in Rochester

Evergreen is partnering with Stonebrook Community Church to plant a new church in Rochester, MN this year. Most of the team has already moved there and is getting situated. Here are a few photos from the sending services on March 25th. Among those being sent are one of Evergreen Lakeville's founding pastors, Charlie Meyer and his wife Roxanne. You can pray for Evergreen Lakeville and Living Hope Church during this faith-filled year!

If you want to learn more about how Kingdom Builders is supporting the church plant, visit the Regional project goals in our Project Guide.

It's not too late to make your pledge for the 2018 year.
