February 2013 - Missions in the Mystery City
Month at a Glance:
Wyatt and Kay Timmus and Nelson Sweeny are missionaries who serve in an ancient city in southern Europe. Like many other international missionaries, they serve in a place that can't be named due to security concerns. Even so, the three live out their faith in Christ as they minister to refugees seeking a better life and to nationals who are witnessing great changes in their country. From coffee shops to camps of the Roma people, sharing Jesus with others is paramount to these missionaries.
Scripture Verse: Romans 12:21
Don't let evil overcome you. Overcome evil by doing good.
