Here are this week’s praises and requests from WGM missionaries and ministries around the globe.
Bolivia: David and Rachel Kerney are excited to announce that construction on the University Residence in Sucre started earlier this month. The residence will be built as the second story of an existing church. This ministry will be a great blessing to families from rural areas who send their children into the city to study at the university. Not only will the home provide the students with adequate food and housing, but it will also have a discipleship program to help them grow in their walks with Christ.
Kenya: Barbara Pinkley shared that all 20 members of the senior class at Tenwek School of Nursing passed their nursing council exams in July to become registered nurses. A total of 2,207 nursing candidates, representing 50 schools, took the exams. Only five of those schools had no students fail the exam, and Tenwek was one of them. All 20 seniors have also been offered jobs on the nursing staff at Tenwek Hospital and will officially start their duties tomorrow, October 1. Pray with them as they begin ministering in Christ’s name.
Albania: Nathan and Cydil Waggoner estimate that more than 95 percent of the people of Vlashaj have not recognized Jesus as their Savior. This is a decrease from 100 percent just 15 years ago. Join them in prayer as they seek to meet all 105 families in the community and provide them with a family photograph, celebrating the past 15 years of service and giving them a tangible gift of God’s love. The Waggoners would also like to match each village family with someone in the States who will pray for them by name. If your family, Sunday School class, small group, or church is interested in “adopting” a Vlashaj family, sign up here.
Honduras: The last day of class for this term at Escuela El Sembrador is October 31. Please pray that the students will finish strong and that they will grow in their relationships with Christ following Spiritual Emphasis Week last week. Pray also for encouragement for the workers and staff as they impact the students’ lives during this final month of classes.
Ukraine: Bill and Oksana Brower report that things remain calm in Berdyansk as people await the results of the ceasefire. No new refugees are coming into Berdyansk, but no refugees are leaving to return home either. Keep praying for the 47 people staying in the Home of Hope building and that their time with the Browers will lead to meaningful conversations and ultimate salvation.
The Call Prayer Calendar (September 28-30): Pray that God will continue to open doors for ministry on the American Indian Field. (This request was taken from the latest issue of The Call, WGM’s official magazine.)
