Denmark Update from Lucas Burton

Dear Friends and Family,

I can’t believe how fast 2017 went by! As we step into a new year, I’m excited to continue partnering with you in the work that God is doing in Copenhagen!

This Christmas my team and I had the opportunity to visit the American STINT missionary team currently serving in Paris. As we shared the highs and lows of cross-cultural missions in our respective cities, we learned that the need for the gospel in France is great––but so is the opportunity. Right now, less than 1% of France’s population are evangelical Christians. I would be honoured if you would join me in praying for the ministry in Paris in the following ways:

Pray that God would establish student-led movements of evangelism and discipleship on the seven Parians campuses this STINT team is currently serving on
Pray that French nationals, especially men, would join the local student ministry
Pray for the launch of the student ministry in a Strasbourg (another French city) this March

In addition, here are three way you can pray for my team in Copenhagen:

  1. Pray that the Holy Spirit would give our team wisdom in knowing what activities to prioritize and how to invest our time in the coming new semester
  2. Pray for the preparation of “The Bridge” our annual student conference which will be held in Copenhagen on February 9-11th
  3. Pray that our student leaders would be filled with fresh vision and faith to attempt great things for God and to expect great things from him!

As always, if there are specific ways I can be praying for you and your families, please don’t hesitate to let me know! May 2018 be a year in which we know Jesus more, love Jesus more, and, out of the overflow of that love, seek to make Jesus known!

Yours in Christ,

Lucas
