March Prayer Letter

March 2014

Dear Praying Friends,

She is 92 years old and is the lone survivor of the Jewish ghetto massacre in Vilnius, Lithuania during World War 2.  As we walked around the old town, she showed us where she saw her family for the last time, where her friends were killed and the underground sewer she crawled through to escape the Nazis.  Tears flowed freely as we gave her a tract to witness to her of the Jewish Messiah.

She is 38 years old and has heard the Gospel many times.  She even faithfully attended our church services for almost a year when we ministered in Lithuania.  She listened quietly as the plan of salvation was once again presented to her, but sadly, she still has not been saved.

Victoria is 17 years old. She listened carefully during my sermon, but unlike the others, Victoria accepted Christ as her Savior!!  Praise God Almighty!!  Please pray for her. After discovering his daughter’s new birth, her lost father refused to allow her to attend services at the church there.  Pray for her father to be saved and for her continual spiritual growth in spite of family persecution.

Recently, we returned to Lithuania for a two week visit.  I taught in the Bible College in Vilnius, Lithuania and in Riga, Latvia and preached in churches in both cities.  It is always a joy to see people still serving the Lord after decades and it is an answer to prayer to get to witness yet again to those who are lost.   We came back to Portugal, weary, but determined to continue proclaiming Christ regardless of the response of the hearers.

Plowing and planting,

Mark Hale
