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

In some Creative Access areas talking about God and religion is normal, but these kinds of conversations can stay fairly superficial. Please pray for workers who are wanting to move beyond this into deeper discussions about faith and Jesus. Pray that God would give them opportunities to witness in a way that engages people’s hearts. 

Even though sharing the good news of Jesus is challenging in Creative Access locations, God has been using dreams and visions to call people to faith in Jesus and encourage believers to persevere in their faith. Praise God that he reveals himself to people through dreams, and please pray that he will continue to speak to people in these locations through dreams and visions. Pray that those who hear his voice will respond to the call to believe in Jesus and come to eternal life in him. 

Graham and Fiona serve in a creative access location. Please pray for those who Graham and Fiona study the Bible with. Pray that God’s word would accomplish his purposes in them, and that Graham and Fiona would see fruit from their time reading the Bible with others. 

It can sometimes be difficult for workers in Creative Access areas to have conversations with others about Jesus because of the fear of being overheard. Please pray that God would provide opportunities to speak with those who are interested in knowing more about Jesus where people feel comfortable talking openly. 

Beth serves in a Creative Access location, working in an English-speaking business. Please pray that those who are interested in Jesus would be drawn to believers such as Beth. Pray that Beth will speak graciously and lovingly when she shares the truth of the gospel 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
