Los Angeles: Fertile field for ministry

Amid the glamour associated with Los Angeles, Calif., the need for a Savior often goes unmentioned. More than 10 million people live in the metropolitan Los Angeles area, but fewer than 1 million of them are affiliated with an evangelical church. 

scriptureCan 11 college students make a difference in Los Angeles in one summer? A group from Temple Baptist Church would say, “Yes!” The students are in L.A. as part of the North American Mission Board’s SEND>>North America campaign. Seth Scriber, a member of the group, wrote in a previous post: “Everyone is doing such an amazing job of meeting new people and being intentional with those relationships as they continue to get to know them. People are finding coffee shops, gyms, comic book stores, skate shops, and volunteer opportunities to be regulars at.”

Please pray for these students on mission in Los Angeles and for the people with whom they come in contact:
