"I was listening to Leading The Way outside a supermarket when a young Aboriginal lad sitting nearby told me he listens to Michael on the radio. . . . How happy I was to hear firsthand how the Word of God is going out in the Aboriginal community!" LEADING THE WAY LISTENER, AUSTRALIA

"There are many Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people across Australia who look forward to hearing Dr. Michael Youssef bring God's Word to their homes through the television each week. Bible Truth is not watered down or held back. This kind of ministry is so needed in our country." – TONY RICHES, CEO OF ABORIGINAL EVANGELICAL FELLOWSHIP

Prayer: Lord, I pray that many come to know the Truth of Your Gospel through Leading The Way's work with the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders in Australia. I ask for their hearts to be softened to Your Truth. Raise up even more leaders to disciple new believers and help them grow in Christ. May Your Gospel continue to flourish among this people group, for Your glory! I pray in the name of Jesus. Amen.

Through your partnership, Leading The Way is proclaiming Gospel Truth across 6 continents.
