Peter and Martina Morriss In Germany (just East of Frankfurt)

Peter and Martina attended Good Shepherd for a year while preparing to work with Arab World Ministries (AWM). After several years reaching out to Muslims in Paris, they moved to Germany to be nearer Martina’s ageing parents.

Their village has a centre for refugees, and they engage with them in various ways, teaching English and German, supporting kids doing homework, and meeting with anyone interested to learn more about the Christian faith.

Recently they arranged an exhibition called ‘Golden Days – What our Public Holidays are really all about’. On Reformation Day, Oct 31st, they were able to take the German class around the exhibition, explaining the story of Jesus through Public Holidays, from Christmas to Pentecost.

Pray for 4 Iranian and Afghan men who are studying a seekers’ course called Al Massira in Farsi with the help of an elderly Farsi-speaking believer. Pray that women will sign up for a women’s course next year!

Pray too for Manu from Pakistan who is doing the same course in English.

Sadly, Martina is still dogged by depression and will be spending time in a Christian clinic once again when a place becomes available. Please pray for healing for her. Peter will continue, celebrating Christmas and giving calendars in 5 languages which are spoken by their friends.
