Winfield and Lori Scott* work among Central Asian peoples and recognize how marriages are suffering, even among believers. They were asked to lead a marriage retreat for a group of national pastors and their wives. Marriage-focused events are not common in these areas and most of the couples had not been in a setting where discussing their relationship was encouraged.

Over the course of the week, the Scotts encouraged the couples to share in small groups and alone with their spouses, discussing current situations that their families were facing. Whether in personal counseling, discipleship ministries with believers, or in events like the marriage retreat, the Scotts are hopeful that more Christian couples will learn the value and impact of encouraging one other.

THE COOPERATIVE PROGRAM is the financial fuel for reaching every person for Jesus Christ in every town, every city, every state, and every nation. Your support through the Cooperative Program allows missionaries like the Scotts to encourage and empower local believers to look to Scripture for guidance and to seek the Holy Spirit’s power in their lives.

PRAY along with the Scotts for healthy marriages and families among the Central Asians they work with on a daily basis.
