Here are this week’s praises and requests from around the world.
India: Daniel and Cindy Tolan (medical and university student ministries in Tennessee), thank God for blessing their recent work team to India. The Tolans, their daughter Anna, and seven students from East Tennessee State University ministered alongside staff and students at South India Biblical Seminary. Daniel was able to encourage, challenge, and instruct national pastors on healthcare ministries while the entire team helped with Vacation Bible School training. Continue to pray that God will bless the students at SIBS as they become the future church leaders of India.
Texas/Mexico Border Ministries: Debbie McKelvey is grateful for the opportunities she is given to counsel children, youth, and adults as she earns her counseling degree. Although her heart breaks as she listens to the stories of her clients, she rejoices when she is able to share God’s love and grace with them. Debbie also praises God that she is able to share His hope at a rehabilitation home, reminding the residents that Christ will never give up on them. Please pray that Debbie’s clients and those at the rehab home will grow closer to Jesus as they interact with Debbie.
International Celebration of Missions 2015: The Holy Spirit was truly present at International Celebration of Missions, June 25-28. Hearts were refreshed, renewed, and challenged as musicians, missionaries, and speakers shared about what God is doing around the world. May lives continue to be changed as attenders “Demonstrate Missions” among their families, friends, neighborhoods, workplaces, and churches.
Kenya: Barbara Pinkley requests prayer for the senior class at Tenwek School of Nursing. In addition to their busy class schedule, the students recently lost their class advisor, Joyline Rop, who passed away June 24 following a nine-month battle with brain cancer. Pray that the students will remain focused and disciplined as they finish their last six weeks of clinicals before undergoing two weeks of revision and study time prior to taking the Kenyan nursing board exams the last week of August.
Presidential Search Committee: WGM’s Board of Directors asks for concerted prayers as the Mission seeks God’s person to lead WGM following the retirement of President Hubert Harriman on July 1, 2016. Please pray for wisdom, guidance, and discernment for the special task force and search committee that have been appointed. Pray also that God will begin preparing His person for this vital role with WGM.
The Call Prayer Calendar (June 28-30): Pray that God will give you “courageous love” to reach out with Christ’s love to someone today. (This request was taken from the April-June 2015 issue of The Call, WGM’s official magazine.)
The Call Prayer Calendar (July 1-4): Pray for wisdom for veteran missionaries who are in mentoring relationships with new missionary disciples. (This request was taken from the latest issue of The Call, WGM’s official magazine.)
