What are Gatekeepers and how are they defined within Back to Jerusalem?
The term “Gatekeeper” usually refers to guards who are put in place to protect property or things from harm. This is why the BTJ Gatekeepers are so precious. BTJ Gatekeepers are those who faithfully give 25 USD each month. We know that they have prayerfully committed their resources to further the Kingdom of God and they want to be good stewards, and we take this duty seriously.
This month, our Gatekeepers have received access to prayer points every week. We appreciate all of the prayers, notes, and comments from our GKs. We have tried to ensure that the prayer points available are up to date and contain enough information to be praying for one item a day.
We ask if you can continue to keep BTJ Poland in your prayers. The team is working in 3 main ways with refugees crossing over from Ukraine:
1) Food and chocolate.
2) Efforts trying to stop human trafficking at the border.
3) Bible printing.
Bible printing and distribution is always one of our priorities. This year will be one of our biggest efforts for Bible distribution mainly in China, Iran and Afghanistan and now Ukraine. Please pray for the continued publication and distribution of this material.
We also want to pass on a note requesting prayer for our sister Esther. For those who have read her story, Smuggling Light, you will know that Esther dedicated her life to ministering to the people of North Korea and was imprisoned and tortured in both China and North Korea as a result. Our sister recently lost her husband, Pastor Kim, due to health complications on Easter morning. We pray for Sister Esther, but rejoice in Pastor Kim’s hope now being fully realized.
A big thank you to all of Gatekeepers who continue to faithfully stand together with us, as we serve together with the Chinese church to take the Gospel into the darkest regions of the world.
