Matt & Abby Edwards (Madeline, Audrey, Kylie)

Active Missionaries in Austria

Matt and Abby Edwards are living in Linz, Austria.  Based out of Cornerstone Foursquare Church, they are the active family ministry directors.  They also give their time every Sunday evening for children’s and youth ministry at an Iranian sister church in Linz, All Nations Gemeinde.  Additionally, Matt serves on the Foursquare Europe Youth leadership team and Abby serves on Cornerstone’s leadership team.  

In addition to family ministry within the church, the Edwards also co-lead two community groups throughout the week and have recently launched the first "Serve the City" ministry in Austria.  Their focus is on supporting the underprivileged, including Ukrainian refugees, by providing affordable housing, distributing food and hygiene articles, providing cost-free English tutoring to students, and translation services for immigrants.

Regional Updates & Prayer Requests

February Update / Praise Report: We were able to get a Ukrainian mom and baby into their own apartment!  This is a big deal! Finally, we’ve been able to help get the Ukrainians into apartments, with a lease in their name, instead of ours!  Having "Serve the City" as an official organization here allows us to support and vouch for the families better!  So, we got her settled into her own apartment, furnished it, and that was a big deal!
Prayer Requests:
We have our second kids camp coming up the last full week of February!  We did it last year and it was great, so looking forward to this years!  Our strategy this year, however, is to run it under Serve the City, with teen volunteers from Kylie’s school.  
  • Pray for a sec Es’s full camp, for workers, and for good (discipleship) relationships with the teens who help! 
  • Pray for wisdom and discernment as we assist other Ukrainian families in the coming months…free housing is drying up and we have to look at paid options.  
  • Pray for favor with finances (personal and ministry), because prices are sky rocketing and we are at our limit.
