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

For workers in Creative Access areas it can be difficult to talk to Muslims about Jesus because they believe that he is a prophet and not the son of God. Please pray for those for whom Jesus is a “stumbling block” (1 Peter 2:8), that God will open their eyes to who Jesus is that they might follow Jesus as their Lord. 

In “Wonderland”, where Graham and Fiona serve, local people have strong ties with extended family in other towns and some move away to be with them. Please pray for those that Graham and Fiona have shared their faith with but have since moved away. Pray that these people will continue to be drawn to God and that they will meet others who will keep witnessing to them. 

Graham and Fiona have been remembering God’s faithfulness, presence and plan as they meet people they have had significant relationships with during their time in ‘Wonderland’. As God draws people to himself, pray that Graham and Fiona will see where he has been at work, and that the Holy Spirit will lead them to relationships, conversations and activities where they can share the gospel. 

After many years of praying that God would grow their team, Rex and Ruby are expecting new team members to arrive this autumn. Praise God that he has answered their prayers! Please pray that their new teammates will settle well, and for Rex and Ruby as they help them adjust while supporting the rest of the team and running the English centre. 

Through meeting up with local friends in a creative access country, Rae has noticed an improvement in her skills in the local language. Thank God for how much she has already learned, and please pray that her skills will continue to increase so that she can share the gospel in a greater depth with others. 

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
