Thanks for making an impact for missions on your knees!
Bolivia: Philip Renfroe (Special Assignment) thanks the Lord for blessing the recent discipleship training retreat for missionaries serving in four South American countries. The missionaries were grateful for the information and inspiration they received, and some have already begun implementing the concepts they learned.
Haiti: Radio Lumière recently broadcast the annual conference of the local church with the theme “Love, Pardon, and Reconciliation.” In the past, these remote broadcasts have been poor quality. However, thanks to new technology introduced by Paul Shingledecker, the broadcasts had great quality and no dropouts. A Haitian couple, who has been separated for years and was listening to the program in Chicago via the Internet, was reconciled after hearing the Saturday message. Thank God for the Radio Lumière staff as they not only preach the gospel to the lost, but also walk daily with the Haitian people.
New Missionaries: WGM recently appointed Bill and Joy Irwin as career missionaries to Kenya and Brady and Alicia Searl as missionary disciples to Uganda. The Irwin family has been serving at Tenwek Hospital for two years, Bill as an attorney helping with grant writing and Joy as an OB/GYN. Brady and Alicia have a heart for discipleship and are excited to use their business skills and social work degree, respectively, in Uganda. Praise God for leading these servants to WGM, bringing the 2014 missionary appointment total to 15 workers!
Kenya: Tenwek School of Nursing’s senior class will take the Nursing Council of Kenya’s comprehensive board exams next week to become registered community health nurses. Pray that they will remain focused on their studies this week and that they will have peace during the tests.
Missionary Kids Camp: WGM’s Member Health Department will hold the annual MK Camp July 28 through August 1 at Ouabache State Park in Bluffton, Indiana. Pray for the leaders and more than 20 campers as they focus on “Seeing the Unseen.” May God move in the hearts of these young people as they spend this special time together.
Renewal: WGM’s headquarters staff will be involved in Renewal July 23-25 for missionaries returning to the States after serving on the field. Please pray for these missionaries during this time of transition and debriefing: Mike and Donna Brown (Bolivia), Mike and Pam Chupp (Kenya), Andrea Cooper (Bolivia), Billy and Joanna Coppedge (Uganda/South Sudan), Mark and Bev Donahue (Paraguay), Benji and Erica Jenkins (Papua New Guinea), Robyn Moore (Kenya), Seth and Veronica Porter (PNG), Shushan Richardson (Ukraine), Faith Shingledecker (Kenya), and Russ and Beth White (Kenya).
The Call Prayer Calendar (July 20-26): Pray that God will call more men and women to use what they have to further the cause of missions. (This request was taken from the latest issue of The Call, WGM’s official magazine.)
