“For unto us a Child is born, Unto us a Son is given; And the government will be upon His shoulder. And His name will be called Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace” (Isaiah 9:6 NKJV).


Kenya: John and Linda Spriegel praise our mighty God that more than 2,000 women have earned their own Bibles over the past two years by learning scripture verses as part of Tabitha Ministry Bible studies. Helen (pictured at right) is one of these women. The Lord restored her from a life of alcoholism, and she is now serving as a Bible study leader! Keep praying for Tabitha Ministry as studies are starting in new areas of the country all the time. Recently, 165 more women in a new area said their verses and earned Bibles! May the seed of His Word grow much fruit.

Kenya: The Africa Gospel Church Baby Centre staff is grateful to our wonderful Lord for bringing Tabitha (6 weeks) into the home and for providing a forever family for Jeremiah. They also ask for your fervent prayers for Jonas, who recently came to the center weighing only three pounds. Remember Jonas in your prayers, and pray specifically that he will gain weight.

Uganda: Justin and Debby Williams thank our everlasting Father that 14 new middle school youth leaders were pinned last week as part of their ministries at Heritage International School. These students will slowly begin taking leadership of the “Act Like Men/Women” studies. Join Justin and Debby as they pray for these young men and women as they continue to live for God and demonstrate His character and integrity to their school, families, and communities. May hundreds and even thousands more youth follow in their footsteps.


Haiti: Paul Shingledecker returned to Haiti December 5 to work with engineers from SonSet Solutions to install the new digital audio servers and network for the main Radio Lumière studios. Please pray that the installation goes well and that the follow-up training can be scheduled soon. Pray also for the relief efforts that continue in southern Haiti following Hurricane Matthew. God has blessed the ministry with partners who have committed to helping rebuild Radio Lumière’s facilities that were damaged and to assisting the many staff members whose homes were destroyed. It is estimated that it could take up to 10 years for southern Haiti to rebuild following this recent devastation.

Uganda: Just as the world into which Jesus was born was full of darkness and distress, the world today is full of broken systems, processes, and people. Injustice, deceit, loss, oppression, and inequality are but a few of the reasons people long for peace. Pray with Jeff and Christine Stanfield for workers around the world who are sharing the good news of our Prince of Peace with those who need to know the love of Christ during this holiday season and for all eternity. Please pray for: the courage to stand for Jesus Christ, wisdom and discernment to recognize the schemes of the evil one, hearts fully surrendered to God and His will, God-honoring relationships among God’s people and those they serve, knowledge and understanding of God’s Word, strength in perseverance, abundance in God’s provision, and fruit for God’s kingdom.
