DERIC & AMBER MOEN
The Moens currently live in Malaga, Spain, and are leading a movement of new expressions of church. They are raising up leaders and mentoring Spaniards to reach others for Christ through personal coaching, missional training, and directing spiritual retreats, serving alongside local ministries and opening their home regularly to others. Only 0.7% of the population of Malaga is evangelical Christian, so there is an immense amount of work to do for God's Kingdom. Currently, the Moens desire your prayers as they are becoming fluent in Spanish, and they are also looking for people who desire to come to Spain to assist their ministry. Pray that God would continue to bring Spaniards into an intimate relationship with God, and pray that God would send those people out to reach their neighbors.

Laura has been serving for the last 17 years in an East Asian country that is politically restrictive to the Gospel. She began her work among university students. Many of those Christian graduates are now professionals, strategically placed by God to influence other professionals as well as transform their field, society, and the world for God’s glory. However, many are still struggling to know how to live out their beliefs in the public square. While Laura works specifically with university professors, her team is working with various influential people in the city as well. They are involved in setting up vocationally based communities and coaching them to overcome the difficulties of being salt and light. While she may not be able to directly contact world class professors on her own, through her networks she is able to have a greater impact. It is her dream that these professors would not only transform education, educators, and students, but they would see other nations transformed as they intentionally use scholarly exchange as a means of glorifying God.
