Thijmen & Margot Bekkers have been living in the Middle East with their children Tirza and Joab for the last 3 years. Thijmen works as a physics researcher and Margot takes care of the family. She is fully occupied with learning the language and besides that she still works in the field of communication for clients. Tirza and Joab are both in school. They speak the language fluently and are completely included in their groups of friends.
The mission they have received from God is to build relationships with the local population and to bring the good news to them in this way.
Prayer and thank-you points:
- The company of T is growing, not very quickly, but the development is positive. Keep praying for steady growth.
- Please pray for the well-being of the children and the whole family. They are well integrated but understandably they also have challenges in such a different culture and environment. Pray also for their health.
- Pray for God’s guidance. The situation in the country is tough for the population. Many contacts and friends of the family have left or are planning to leave the country. This feels like a loss of course after years of building relationships and having sown hope into their lives. Pray for encouragement for the family, for guidance and confirmation in every step they take.
- The family is extremely grateful to everyone who prays for them, encourages them, and also to everyone who financially supports them.
