Today in the PC-USA Mission Yearbook

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.

“Jesus’ question, ‘How many loaves have you?’ produced five loaves to feed 5,000 people. Even thinly sliced, it’s hard to see those loaves being enough. And, in truth, if loaves of bread are all that’s in view here, enough they will never be.
