The Mission Yearbook for Prayer and Study is a daily devotional with 365 inspiring mission stories that come from next door and all across the globe. It inspires thousands of Presbyterians daily as they uphold the mission of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) in intercessory prayer. The stories in the 2013 Mission Yearbook were gathered around the question of Jesus to his disciples, “How many loaves have you?” from Mark 6:38. The book is filled with stories of God’s abundance in the face of overwhelming needs and a scarcity of resources.

Immediately after the tornadoes passed, people from all denominations, faith traditions, political convictions, and socioeconomic groups banded together to care for the wounded and the grieving, to plan for a better future, and to get to work rebuilding homes, communities, and lives.
