Photo at left with Brother Dave after a pizza lunch with LSI staff and friends of the ministry. What a blessing to get an in-person update!


Did you know? Living Stones International is on Facebook and Instagram! Join us for more stories and other content!



We are encouraged by how God is moving around the world, appearing in dreams and opening up avenues for Christians to share their faith in countries that are hostile to the message of Jesus. Join us as we share these stories and shine a spotlight on the persecution and the hope of these dear brothers and sisters in Christ.

42 years of ministry to the persecuted Church

February of 2024 marks 42 years of Dr. Pat traveling and encouraging persecuted Believers around the world! She spent the first ten years visiting Communist countries, but for the past thirty years she has traveled primarily to Muslim Majority Countries in the Middle East and North Africa. Brother Dave began traveling with Dr. Pat and encouraging our Brothers and Sisters in those regions in 2017. We are so happy to share stories of persecution and hope through our prayer letters. We will share some on our website here, but please, if you are not currently receiving our Prayer Letters, sign up today!
