Mark & Gina Borg
Malta is beautiful but has dwindling cultural faith communities. Malta needs the beauty of Jesus and his bride needs courage in this hour. May the growing hunger for a gospel of freedom bear the fruit of many followers in love with God, living lives of radical obedience as God multiplies his work here.
Mark is Maltese and he Gina and the kids have a heart for strengthening the local believers and seeing the Maltese lead their communities to Christ. The indigenous evangelical movement is still in its first generation and less than 0.025% of the population. The Borgs are serving locally with music, discipleship & new believers. Mark uses his professional Elvis tribute show in evangelistic music ministry. As the Lord prepares the way they will assist European churches as they facilitate outreach. They desire to see more Maltese & Europeans worshipping God for eternity.
They are currently building relationships & partnerships with those who have been working here long term. In the context of an existing local church, they are prayerfully considering best models for building a culture of healthy mother-church planting and sending. As they discern how to best model a priesthood of all believers in evangelism, growth, discipleship and unity in the love for Jesus. Annual conferences, children’s and youth events and prayer days also facilitate some of these goals. They are encouraged daily by the hunger for God many on the Islands demonstrate the work of one-on-one bible reading & discipleship seems endless. English is widely spoken, understood (and in some settings preferred) allowing many openings for the gospel and prayer.
