As farmers tend to their fields, we are reminded that the Lord of the harvest is faithful and promises to hear our prayers. Thank you for lifting these items to Him.
Ukraine: Earlier this month, a massive windstorm barreled through Berdyansk, knocking down thousands of trees and cutting power supplies. In response to the governor’s appeal, Ukrainians began cutting down trees and removing the wreckage at schools and other public places. Many of the 46 refugees staying at the Home of Hope volunteered for several days, giving them the opportunity to give back to this community that has helped them in their time of need. Praise God for this relationship-building experience, and keep praying that the refugees and Ukrainians will continue to encourage each other.
Kenya: Staff and students at Tenwek School of Nursing are staying busy with classes, clinical experiences, and planning for graduation on November 15. Pray that the staff and students will feel God’s presence during these stressful days and that He will remain with the senior class as they transition into their new roles as nurses, caring in Christ’s name at Tenwek Hospital.
South Sudan: Village shops are running out of salt, sugar, soap, fuel, and other supplies because the long rainy season has made many roads impassable. This lack of supplies has also led to cattle raiding and tribal fights, resulting in many deaths. Please pray that the Mango Ministries staff will be lights in this dark time as they reach out to the people of South Sudan with God’s love.
Homeland Ministries: Remember Paula Crist and her staff as they host Southeast Celebration of Missions this weekend, October 31 to November 2, at St. Simons Island, Georgia. Pray also for speakers Rev. Tommy Anderson (United Kingdom director) and Todd Eckhardt (director of Men With Vision and Homeland Ministries); worship leader Dr. Steven Darr; and missionaries Andy and Lizet Bowen (Paraguay), April Hershberger (Kenya), Len and Betsy Phillips (Bolivia), and DeeAnn Rich (Honduras). May those in attendance be compelled to share Christ’s love in a needy world.
The Call Prayer Calendar (October 26–November 1): Pray for a teen or young adult in your life who is searching for meaning and hope. Pray that God will walk with them through their struggles. (This request was taken from the latest issue of The Call, WGM’s official magazine.)
