We’re embarking on an exciting journey as a family for the next 40 days, and hope that you will join us. The “I Was A Stranger” / Fui Extranjero, prayer challenge, is a mission to understand God’s heart for immigrants and our role in bringing Shalom to our broken world.

Here’s how it works:

Each day, read the scripture, and pray for understanding in how God wants you to respond to His Word. Ask him how he is calling you and Everyday Church to radically love our neighbors. Be open and ready to hear from Him, and lean into the mission He has chosen us to partner with him in.

Will you accept the challenge?

We hope you will. Each time we’ve embarked on a church-wide prayer challenge, we’ve seen God show up powerfully in the lives of his people, and we’re expecting nothing less in the 40 days to come. We have no idea where God might be calling us to change and serve his people, but we’re committed to following his leading. 

Praying for you and this next 40 days that God would use us to heal and comfort our broken world by loving immigrants, strangers, outsiders and everyone around us – our neighbors – as we love ourselves.

 “When a foreigner lives with you in your land, don’t take advantage of him. Treat the foreigner the same as a native. Love him like one of your own. Remember that you were once foreigners in Egypt. I am God, your God.”

Leviticus 19:33-34 (MSG)
