Featured Missionary

Al and Duke Butkovich
Al and Duke Butkovich
Ambassadors for Christ, International (AFCI)
Metro DC - U.S.

Al oversees AFCI's global prayer movement, handles their website requests, and evaluates field reports from the 22 countries where AFCI operates. Al and Duke also hold weekly Bible studies for internationals and make home visits to those in the Hispanic community. Last summer Pastor Jesse Johnson spoke to their adult Bible-study group from 1 Corinthians 13, challenging them to use their spiritual gifts with pure motivation so the body of Christ can function as God intended.

To celebrate the fifth wedding anniversary of Jessy and Eric (Al and Duke's daughter and son-in-law), Al and Duke, and Jessy and Eric, travelled to Bolivia to meet Eric's family. Because most of his family members could not travel to the U.S. for their wedding in 2012, Eric and Jessy invited 75 family members and friends to a resort-type restaurant where they renewed their wedding vows in Spanish, and Al presented the biblical view of marriage and shared the Gospel. While in Bolivia, they rejoiced that Eric's birth-father and stepmother, two aunts, two cousins, a maid, and Eric's best friend from childhood received Christ.

Prayer Requests:
1. For Al and Duke's ministry with AFCI.
2. For children, students and young adults who are part of Bible studies Al and Duke lead.
3. For unsaved members of Eric's family to search the Scriptures and find Christ.
