Prayer Lifeline—April 26, 2016
Printer-friendly Version | Phone Version
“Hear the cry and the prayer that your servant is praying in your presence this day” (1 Kings 8:28 NIV). The Lord is listening, and we thank you for remembering WGM and our missionaries and ministries in prayer.
Honduras: Larry and Angie Overholt, Laurie Potter, and David Ortiz (Choluteca Vocation School director) recently met with Marlon Escoto, the Minister of Education of Honduras. The two-part meeting was the first step in the formation of a technical high school nursing program. Praise God that the meeting went well and that a follow-up workday was held April 15. Keep this process in your prayers as this new ministry becomes a reality. Pray specifically that lives will be impacted for Christ as Larry, Angie, and Laurie work closely with Hondurans who may not know of His love for them.
Because You Prayed: Butch and Leatha Jenkins (Papua New Guinea) and Ben and Jenny Roberts (Kenya) have been released from homeland ministry assignment. Thank the Lord for His constant provision and continue to remember these missionaries and their families as they adjust back to international living on the mission field.
Ukraine: Bill and Oksana Brower are spreading the love of Jesus by developing friendships and teaching life skills at an orphanage and a women’s shelter. Their weekly visits to the orphanage include playing games, sharing Bible stories, and helping with English classes. Their regular trips to the shelter include talking with the ladies, donating needed supplies, and teaching the women how to manage their finances. Please pray that God will grant grace and favor to Bill, Oksana, and the Ukrainian believers who minister with them as they seek to point people to Jesus through these practical helps. Pray also that the orphans and women will not see these visits as handouts but will come to know and understand that the missionaries and national Christians are there to build relationships with them.
The Call Prayer Calendar (April 24–30): Pray for missionary kids as they serve alongside their parents on the mission field. (This request was taken from the latest issue of The Call, WGM’s official magazine.)
