Here are this week’s praises and requests.
Mexico: Dennis and Twana Johnson praise God for answered prayer following the successful Vacation Bible School recently held at Pan de Vida (Bread of Life) Church. The goal was to minister to 45 children, and 42 kids registered for the program. However, the best news is that 25 children made decisions to follow Christ! In addition to the kids, two adults—one in an English class and one who stopped by the Johnsons’ home—have also received Christ in the last few weeks. Please pray for the church staff as they coordinate discipleship outreach for these young Christians.
Nigeria: Jennifer Bennett and Shelley Chapman praise God for His faithfulness following a robbery and assault at their apartment on July 17. The Lord protected them during the event and continues to provide for their spiritual, emotional, and physical needs. West Africa Theological Seminary has also shown its support by making several security improvements to their home. Keep praying that Jennifer and Shelley will have perseverance, grace, and peace as they process this event and that God will use them as they minister at WATS and to the surrounding Lagos community. Pray also for wisdom for Jennifer as she leads the WATS clinic and for protection for all against Ebola.
Texas/Mexico Border Ministries: After two years of paperwork, praying, and waiting, AMSLA (Latin American Holiness Missionary Agency) missionaries Miguel and Vivian Rodriguez arrived from Honduras to pastor the church in McAllen, Texas. Remember them in your prayers as they orient themselves to a new congregation and culture.
New Missionaries: Greg and Teresa Leeth have been approved as missionary disciples, serving as missionary pastors under Member Health. They have been serving as missionary pastors to Honduras under the Missionary Volunteer Partners program. Thank the Lord for continuing to meet the personnel needs of WGM. So far in 2014, WGM has appointed 17 new missionaries and reinstated a couple to missionary status.
Japan: Kevin and Becky Zirkle request prayer for a man who attends the Bible study Kevin leads at Immanuel Itabashi Church. The man has recently retired and shared that he now has time to study the Bible. Please pray that he will accept Christ’s love and the truth of the gospel.
Uganda: Jeff and Christine Stanfield and Tiana Duncan are preparing to lead a second Community Health Empowerment Training of Trainers in Burundi the first part of September. Pray for the Stanfields, Tiana, and the church leaders in Burundi as they make final preparations. Pray also for safe travels, clear cross-cultural communication, spiritual and physical protection, and that the hearts of the trainers and trainees will be sensitive to God’s Spirit during the training and as they implement CHE in Burundi.
The Call Prayer Calendar (August 24-30): Pray for God to give multicultural ministry team members special understanding toward each other as they work together for the cause of missions. (This request was taken from the latest issue of The Call, WGM’s official magazine.)
