Partner in Prayer

The Word of God says that prayer changes hearts, fights spiritual battles, and stirs up faith. Missionaries need our prayer support above all else.

Our hope is that everyone at Valley Brook — individual, family, small group — will build a relationship with and be in prayer for at least one missionary or missionary family we support. Thank you for partnering with us in supporting our missionaries!

Below are current prayer requests from our supported* missionaries.

*Some Valley Brook missionaries are not listed online due to the sensitive nature of their assignments.
