Here are this week’s praises and requests.
Kenya: The Tenwek Hospital staff thank God for His guidance as they are close to completing the hospital’s first electronic medical record system (Kranium) for both inpatient and outpatient care. Pray that the system will function accurately and that it will help the staff as they treat patients and minister to them and their families and communities.
Kenya: The Tenwek Hospital Board of Directors recently approved a five-year strategic plan for the ministry. With the Lord’s provision, Tenwek seeks to increase the number of hospital beds from 300 to 500, add new buildings, and develop several new subspecialty services and more training programs. Praise God for His blessings on Tenwek, which has more than 700 full-time staff and could pass 15,000 patients admitted to the hospital and over 140,000 visits to the outpatient department this year.
Spain: Join Nathan and Kenzie Vitatoe in thanking the Lord for the salvation of a Moroccan woman in their town. She is excited to have found forgiveness in the Lord and a church that speaks her heart language. Please pray for H as she begins her new life in Christ.
Because You Prayed: The Lord continues to provide, and Chuck and Amy Bemm (Kenya) and Shawn and Bethany Waugh (Papua New Guinea) have completed homeland ministry assignment. Pray for these missionary families as they return to their ministries on the field.
Argentina: Brad and Kristy Weinert request guidance as they resume leadership of the Christian university residence in Córdoba. They need the Lord’s clear direction as they decide when to open the addition, which will house either four more female students or four new young men.
Honduras: Laurie Potter shared that the Honduran Holiness Church has decided to establish a regional Theological Education Center in San Pedro Sula. Pray for the Lord’s discernment as students are recruited for classes that will start in February and that the Lord will send out more laborers to help train and prepare young people for the pastorate.
Kenya: Please pray for the children’s Bible quizzing season at Tenwek Hospital that starts in January. Ministry coordinators are praying that more than 250 kids in grades four through eight from many schools and orphanages will participate. They will be studying 1 Samuel and discovering how “The Battle Belongs to the Lord.”
Spain: Pray for Nathan and Kenzie Vitatoe’s friend Héctor and his family. Héctor’s father, Antonio, is seriously ill with cancer, which has led Nathan and Kenzie to have many faith conversations with Héctor. Although reading the Bible has been intimidating to Héctor in the past, he is currently reading a Spanish children’s Bible and is enjoying it. Pray that the Lord’s Word will bear fruit in Héctor’s life and the hearts of his family.
The Call Prayer Calendar (December 1-7): Pray that God will open your eyes to someone who needs to hear from Him today. (This prayer request was taken from the latest issue of The Call, WGM’s official magazine.)
