This article comes to us from Career Missionary Benjamin Helge‘s May newsletter. Benjamin serves in the Czech Republic, where he oversees GEO missionaries in that country, and the work they do to share the Gospel through English language learning and more. Recently, Ben and the GEOs met together for a time of refreshment and reflection.

Gathering with other missionaries provides many benefits. Studying the Word of God, singing together, playing games, exploring our culture, sharing experiences, all of which took place during a GEO (Globally Engaged in Outreach) Missionary Saturday in Olomouc, Czech Republic. The Czech Republic currently hosts four GEO Missionaries serving through The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod’s Office of International Mission. While working in various locations, the team serves in similar ways through outreach, evangelism, and the teaching of English to spread the Gospel of Christ crucified. Our time in Olomouc allowed us to study more deeply the Lord’s Prayer, explore the city, and taste some regional specialties at a Moravian restaurant. God gave us rest in the fellowship of each other.

Please continue to pray for our GEO Missionary team that God would provide them with the strength, health, and boldness to serve the people of the Czech Republic and witness to them in all they do.
