As we celebrate Holy Week, may we not forget the sacrifice of Christ and our Great Commission to share that life-changing love with others. Happy Easter!
Honduras: Larry and Angie Overholt thank God that the small agriculture projects that have been established in different communities are beginning to multiply as Hondurans realize the potential of growing their own vegetables and raising small animals. Pray that community members will continue to be open to learning how to provide for their families as a team of agriculture students from The Ohio State University visit in May to set up more projects.
Hungary: Meg Dul recently helped plan the theological education program of the Wesleyan Alliance and shared that it is exciting to see God raise up young leaders in the church. Continue to pray for these students and to thank God that multiple Christian organizations can work together through the Alliance to accomplish big things in Hungary.
Uganda: The University Discipleship Movement has grown to include group meetings at Kampala International University, Cavendish University, and International University of East Africa. Although attendance at the main Sunday services has decreased, more students are becoming involved in small groups. This semester, 89 students are studying The Purpose Driven Life together. Pray that the students will learn how to live as Christ followers at all times and that God will grant the ministry leaders wisdom as they invest in these young people and seek to move the outreach forward.
Hungary: Gabor and Meg Dul recently returned to their ministries in Hungary, and Meg rejoined the English teaching team at a local church. The team is hosting discussion groups on the fruit of the Spirit, and the groups have already studied gentleness and self-control. Pray that these discussion groups will draw people closer to God and that the leaders’ lives will clearly show the fruit of the Spirit.
Mexico: Join Chrissy Greenwell in praying that the Vacation Bible School program in Villa Hidalgo goes well April 21-25. Pray that many children will attend and that Christ’s love will be shared with them and ultimately their families.
Concert of Prayer: WGM’s Concert of Prayer has begun, and this week we are lifting up the cause of Children and Youth. Pray that the work of the Holy Spirit will be evident in those serving in children’s and youth ministries as they seek to be like Jesus to those they mentor. Pray also that God will help children’s and youth leaders to have creativity as they prepare Bible studies and lessons for kids like Nappy, who remembered the seeds of his youth and came to know Christ.
