Rex and Ruby

Rex and Ruby* have served in a variety of different creative access locations, seeking to share the gospel with those who have yet to hear it.

In 2017 they moved to a new location, which is a popular tourist resort for locals in their country. When they moved there, they knew of no Christian believers in that area. Over recent years they have encountered some followers of Jesus but those they’ve met live isolated and difficult lives, without the encouragement of local fellowship.

To meet more people in their community, as well as a means to contribute to their society and to give them reason to stay in country, Rex & Ruby have set up an English Language centre and teach English to professionals. They also lead a team, with team members able to serve through teaching, and also through a wide range of seasonal work available in their resort town.

They are seeking through all their encounters and through the witness of their team, to share more of Christ’s love and model lives lived with hope to their friends, students, neighbours and wider community.

Latest Prayer News

One missionary couple who serve in healthcare in a Creative Access location are waiting to receive a vaccine in the UK before returning to their ministry location. Pray that they, and other missionaries waiting to return to Africa, will receive their vaccines in a timely way so that they can return to their ministry in Africa soon. Pray that they will see God’s good purposes for them while they wait to travel.

Some of our workers serving in a Creative Access context are applying for official documents (visas and/or updates to their residency status) in their locations. Please pray for guidance through each step in the process and that their applications will be approved.

North Africa is an area which we describe as ‘Creative Access’, where there is great hostility towards Christianity. Recently, shared this prayer request: “Pray for freedom from evil spirits. One young believer said they feel evil heaviness when they enter their home (because of the witchcraft done by a family member) and it feels different to pray. Pray that believers would learn and practice Ephesians 6 and put on the armour of God.”

“Thank you for remembering Ted, Harry and Huw. They (and new additions to the group) have continued meeting with a colleague to study the Word. They attended the local church for the first time and loved it. These young people are excited about their new- found faith.” Give thanks for these new converts and pray they would continue to be strengthened in their faith in the Lord and trust in each other as they meet together.

“While breaking the fast on the beach and marvelling at how the heavens declare God’s glory, Helen asked, “So what’s the difference between your religion and mine?” I replied, “Well … Jesus! Would you like me to tell you about him?” Totally out of the blue, God opened the door for a conversation about works versus grace and how in our faith God does the ‘fixing’ of our broken relationship rather than us striving to ‘fix’ our sin and broken relationship with him. She said, “I understand now. That’s a big difference!” Please ask that these truths would penetrate deeply in her heart and she would be able to block out the lies of the enemy that keep her chained to works”

Creative Access

We use ‘Creative Access’ to refer to nations, areas or ministries where there is great hostility towards Christianity and where traditional ‘missionary work’ is not possible. Workers, therefore, need to be ‘creative’ in how they proclaim the liberating news of Jesus Christ. In North Africa alone, 200 million people from 472 unreached people groups are unreached with the gospel. That’s 200 million people unknowingly heading for a Christ-less eternity. LEARN MORE
