Muriel Butcher (15 May 1931 – 17 January 2021)
This remarkable woman of God humbly and faithfully served in North Africa and France with the ministry for many years and went to be with her Lord in January 2021. Muriel had a vibrant faith in Jesus and warm personality. She encouraged young cross-cultural workers in their service as well as impacted local people for Christ.
This fund has been set up for those who wish to give a gift in memory of her life and the passions closest to her heart. Donations will be split between the mission she was a part of and the media ministry which provided encouragement, fellowship and an ongoing connection to the work in later years.
Witnessing, discipling, media ministries & church-planting. We're passionate about initiating church-planting movements among the unreached in the Arab world.
An English speaker might say that 'beauty is in the eye of the beholder', that we are the 'apple of her eye', or perhaps even that we have a face that 'only a mother could love'!
As this Arab idiom suggests, we are thankful today for the (often optimistic) love of our mothers!
Businesses can be an amazing platform for ministry, providing opportunities to meet local people, contribute to society, and to be examples of the honesty and integrity that Jesus wants from us.
Pray today for a team in North Africa who are starting a business. 🙏
The small number of Christians in south Morocco face many challenges — this is especially true for those married to non-Christians. Please pray for them to be bold in their witness to their spouses, and for God to draw them to Himself. 🙏
Lailat al Bara'a is one of several Muslim festivals celebrated on the 15th of Shabeen. For those observing the Night of Forgiveness, this is an opportunity to pray for their sins and commemorate the dead.
Pray for Muslims to see the truth that forgiveness is found through Christ.
