Our dear supporters, prayer warriors and friends,

Děkujeme mockrát, thank you very much! Thank you for your continued support and prayers!

Our series of newsletters continues with updates from the first third of 2024. In this issue, we explore “English Days,” a month long program in the K4 Community Center / Church Plant that used English and a team from Topeka, Kansas to connect with the community and share the Gospel.

Thank you for being our faithful reader. Thank you for your prayers and support. Grace and peace to you all.

In Him,

Benjamin, Rebecca and Viktor Helge

” I am Jesus’ little lamb,
Ever glad at heart I am;
For my Shepherd gently guides me,
Knows my need and well provides me,
Loves me ev’ry day the same,
Even calls me by my name.”
LSB 740

Join us in prayer:

Lord Jesus, thank you that you are our Good Shepherd and that we are your lambs. Thank you providing us all that we need, most of all, life everlasting through your death and resurrection.

Thank you for willing servants from Faith Lutheran in Topeka, KS who joined the Helges in sharing the Gospel with the Czech people. Open hearts, dear Lord, that those who hear Your Good News would believe.

Thank you for new ministries in K4 and for the various contacts that have been made. Give boldness to the local church as it teaches and proclaims Christ crucified and risen.

We pray for our Ukrainian friend Vlad in the UK. We ask that you would miraculously provide a way for him to renew his passport without needing to return to Ukraine, so that he would be able to continue studying music in London.

Grow little Viktor in faith and protect him from all harm. Spread your Gospel even through him as he begins to speak and as he shares smiles of joy.

Finally, Lord, we pray for peace. Comfort those who weep. We pray for the war in Ukraine and everywhere to end. Give peace, O God. Give peace. In the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit.
