“Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up” (Galatians 6:9 NIV).
Texas/Mexico Border Ministries: Spiritual Emphasis Week went well at Taylor Christian School in McAllen, Texas. Students joined in worship each day, learned about trusting God as Pastor Ryan Bash shared from Daniel, and memorized daily verses of scripture to support their studies. The leadership team, which included the Bash family and Nathan and Kinzie Vitatoe (Advance Volunteers) and their family, also painted the school’s playground equipment and served in outreach ministries across the border in Mexico. Thank God for this fruitful team and the seeds they sowed for the kingdom. Please keep praying for the young lives at TCS that were touched by God’s Word.
Texas/Mexico Border Ministries: As part of Spiritual Emphasis Week, TCS held a seed project/community service/outreach day. A group of students and teachers worked together to help a disabled, elderly neighbor clean and rake her yard. They also encouraged many other neighbors as they passed out balloons and cookies, seeking to share the love of Christ in their community.
Uganda: WGM Uganda praises the Lord for the way He is moving. The missionary and volunteer staff has much to give thanks for and much to ask you to join them in prayer about. Continue to pray especially for the ministries of the University Discipleship Movement and Heritage International School. God is moving in these ministries, but the battle is intense. Pray that WGM Uganda will keep trusting God for His victory.
Argentina: Brad and Kristy Weinert request prayer as they are scheduled to leave Argentina in two months to begin homeland ministry assignment in the States. Join them in praying that God will provide for two important ministry needs before they leave. First, they are still searching for a lady or couple to administer the Christian University residence and need that position filled in order for the residence to stay open next year. The Weinerts also have a young lady with special needs who lives with them and needs a new home that will meet her needs. Pray that God will lay these ministries on the hearts of the right people He is calling to fill them.
Mexico: Retirees Dennis and Twana Johnson shared that Pan de Vida (Bread of Life) Church that they helped establish in León, Mexico, is suffering from discouragement, lack of finances, and low attendance. Pastors Esteban and Valentina and the other church leaders need prayer for wisdom, encouragement, and strength to serve. The city of León also needs vibrant testimonies as the enemy is working hard to destroy God’s work in that area.
Uganda: This is a busy season of ministry in Uganda, including many comings and goings of visitors and missionary staff. Please pray for strength, clear focus, right prioritization, and good rest for every missionary. Pray also for spiritual protection of the relationships among missionaries and ministry partners so that the enemy will not gain any footholds during this time of busyness.
Harvest Workers: Pray that God will raise up more workers to spread His love across the globe. (If you or someone you know is interested in serving, contact email@example.com.)
The Call Prayer Calendar (October 16–22): Pray for Michael Johnson and his team at Miriam Medical Clinics as they reach out to patients in great need. (This request was taken from the latest issue of The Call, WGM’s official magazine.)
