Prayer Lifeline—February 9, 2016
Printer-friendly Version | Phone Version
As we celebrate Valentine’s Day this weekend, may we focus on the greatest gift of all, God’s love for us through Christ Jesus.
Argentina: Don and Glenda Moon are busy working with the cross-cultural missionary training team in Córdoba, preparing for the upcoming program and interviewing student candidates from Argentina, Cuba, Germany, Mexico, and Venezuela. More than 30 people are on campus taking a month-long introductory course in Bible translation. Praise God that He is calling people in Latin America to be cross-cultural missionaries and that people are responding to His call.
Kenya: Robyn Moore and the Least of These team’s recent trip to Tenwek Hospital was filled with good news. Patience will need a heart valve replacement in a few years, but she is currently very stable. Lucy has a little hole in her heart, but no surgery is needed. Samuel’s arm is stable, but he needs continued antibiotics to fight the infection. Thank the Lord for His healing hand upon these precious lives, and please keep praying for little Leon, who was recently diagnosed with leukemia and is very sick.
Argentina: Brad and Kristy Weinert shared that Anahi moved into the Christian university residence. She is a first-year student, it’s her first time leaving home, and she comes from the Chaco province about 500 miles away from Córdoba. Please pray that God will be Anahi’s strength and comfort as she works through many transitions all at once. Pray also that the other residents will continue to encourage Anahi, give her suggestions, and include her in their youth meeting and church. May they connect and build lasting friendships through their time together at the residence.
Kenya: Jim and Alice Vanderhoof, Carol Spears, and several Africa Gospel Church missionaries and pastors request prayer as they travel to the south coast of Kenya February 9-14. The group will visit a mission station at Kinango that was started about two years ago to minister to the Duruma, an unreached people group that is predominantly Muslim and also practices witchcraft and traditional religion. Pray for safety in travel and for protection from the spiritual forces that have dominated this area. Pray also that God will give the team a clear vision of how Tenwek Hospital and Tenwek Community Health can develop future medical and educational ministries to show the community God’s love by caring for His people.
Papua New Guinea: Join Butch and Leatha Jenkins in praying for wisdom and direction as the WGM missionary and leadership team works through the details of starting Community Health Evangelism training in PNG.
Orientation Camp: Orientation Camp for new missionaries will be held February 14-19 at WGM headquarters. Remember Darin and Laura Arnott (American Indian Field), Greg and Teresa Leeth (missionary pastors), and Esther Leininger (Texas/Mexico Border Ministries) as they learn about WGM policies, language acquisition, cultural adaptations, family challenges, wholistic ministries, mentoring, and many other topics. May they process and retain all they hear while enjoying times of fun, food, and fellowship.
The Call Prayer Calendar (February 7-13): Pray for God’s provision for missionaries who are serving in areas outside of their expertise. (This request was taken from the latest issue of The Call, WGM’s official magazine.)
