This week we are praying for Long-Termer, Tyler B., serving in Vienna, Austria. His main ministry is focused on meeting both the spiritual and physical needs of refugees coming from the Middle East, North Africa, and Central Asia through a ministry that is located outside of Vienna.

Along with the refugee ministry, he is involved in the local church helping disciple the youth.
Day 1: Pray for Tyler’s involvement in the creation of a new ministry in Vienna that will serve refugees in the city. They are currently looking for a place to rent and are praying that this future space will be used for the advancement of God’s Kingdom and for connecting refugees to a local church.
Day 2: Pray for Tyler as he continues to raise the support needed to live and work in Austria. Please pray for new support from other churches and individuals.

Pray for weekly gatherings to be focused on the truth of God’s Word. Pray for the weekly youth meetings and for more opportunities to grow in discipleship.
