Here are this week’s praises and requests from around the world!
Honduras: Gary and Laura Griffin praise God for blessing the 60th anniversary festivities at Escuela El Sembrador July 16-19. Students, staff, missionaries, and visitors from around the globe enjoyed Bible trivia, friendly game competitions, and times of singing and corporate worship. May the Lord continue to bless this vital ministry as the staff seeks to follow Jesus in every aspect of campus life.
Papua New Guinea: Butch and Leatha Jenkins thank the Lord for the privilege of hosting Volunteers In Action participants Tara Silecchia and Elijah Friedeman this summer. In addition to teaching, preaching, organizing youth events, and performing dramas, they each invested in a specialized project for the field. Tara designed and painted two murals at the local health clinic and a world map at a district church and painted three classroom walls at Christian Union Bible College. Elijah recorded and edited four books of the Bible for the Angal Enen translation of the New Testament to be used in audio/solar Bibles.
Haiti: The chikungunya fever continues to sweep across the country, infecting 5-6 million people, and more than 15,000 Haitians have been affected by the spread of cholera. Pray for healing for the people of Haiti and for strength and wisdom for the Radio Lumière staff as they share hope through the gospel of Christ and as they reach out to their fellow Haitians to meet physical needs.
Mexico: Pan de Vida (Bread of Life) Church will hold its Vacation Bible School August 4-8. Although only seven children regularly attend the church, the staff is praying that 45 kids will come to VBS. Please pray that as seeds are planted in the hearts of the neighborhood children that their families will be reached with the good news as well.
Special Assignment: Daniel and Cindy Tolan request prayer for special meetings that are scheduled for this weekend and August 14-17 at Christian Medical and Dental Associations headquarters in Tennessee. More than 30 medical missionaries will attend each weekend of orientation as they prepare to serve overseas. Pray for Daniel and the other facilitators as they train these servants for their upcoming roles in healthcare.
CMS Workshop: WGM’s headquarters staff will be involved in special training July 28–August 1 for missionaries preparing to start homeland ministry assignment. Please pray for clear minds as these missionaries sit through long days of meetings: Mike and Donna Brown (Bolivia), Mike and Pam Chupp (Kenya), Mark and Bev Donahue (Paraguay), Shawn and Lisa Fletcher (American Indian Field), Mike and Julie Ganey (Kenya), Benji and Erica Jenkins (PNG), Robyn Moore (Kenya), Bob and Andrea Parker (Kenya), Seth and Veronica Porter (PNG), Shushan Richardson (Ukraine), Tim and Alyeda Spetnagel (Honduras), and Russ and Beth White (Kenya).
The Call Prayer Calendar (July 27–August 2): Pray for God’s protection and grace to be with the children who come to The Center in Stockton, California. (This request was taken from the latest issue of The Call, WGM’s official magazine.)
