“Finally, dear brothers and sisters, we ask you to pray for us. Pray that the Lord’s message will spread rapidly and be honored wherever it goes, just as when it came to you” (2 Thessalonians 3:1 NLT).
Honduras: Teams from The Ohio State University and the ministry team in Choluteca have worked alongside local Honduran construction workers, community neighbors, and homeowners to build four houses for families in need. The groups are also in the process of building a parsonage for a local church and a dormitory for the Choluteca vocational school. Praise God for this ministry that is not only building houses but also creating friendships that reach across international borders, bringing people closer to Jesus, and showing them Christ’s love in action.
Kenya: Join the Africa Gospel Church Baby Centre staff in thanking the Lord for the forever families that have been provided for Javan and Keturah. Continue to pray for these precious little ones as they bond with their dads, moms, siblings, and extended family members.
Kenya: The senior class of nursing students at Tenwek Hospital College of Health Sciences requests your prayer support as they take their comprehensive Nursing Council of Kenya registration exams August 24-25. Passing these exams will enable the students to be triple qualified to “Care in Christ’s Name” as nurses, midwives, and public health nurses. Please pray that they will have calm hearts and clear and alert minds as they take these important exams and that they will have patience and peace as they wait to receive the results in October.
Uganda: WGM Uganda is asking that peace will prevail in the Democratic Republic of the Congo during these months leading up to the presidential transition. The missionary staff is also praying for peace in South Sudan and for wisdom in how to minister to the thousands of South Sudanese refugees entering Uganda.
The Call Prayer Calendar (August 21–27): Pray for peace in the Middle East. (This request was taken from the latest issue of The Call, WGM’s official magazine.)
