“For nothing will be impossible with God” (Luke 1:37 NRSV). May we stand on the promises of our almighty God as we lift up these praises and requests to Him.


Uganda: The middle school and high school spiritual retreats at Heritage International School went well, even though not everything happened entirely as expected. However, we know that God is able to use all things to turn hearts toward Himself. Please pray for both the middle school and high school students as the Holy Spirit reminds them of what they saw and heard during these retreats.
Uganda: One of the main purposes of the Women’s Cycle of Life trainings in Uganda is to teach the women of Africa Gospel Church Uganda that they are created in the image of God and that He has a purpose—other than having babies—for their lives. There are also lessons addressing good nutrition, pregnancy, family planning, menopause, and much more. The lessons about them being created in the image of God and how much God values them always bring beautiful smiles to their faces; many have never heard this fundamental truth from God’s Word. Pray with John and Beth Muehleisen that the Spirit of God will begin to break down traditional beliefs and use the trainings to transform the hearts and minds of women and men so they can begin to accept and live according to a biblical worldview in their marriages and families.
Commissioned Missionaries: Praise the Lord with us that these missionaries were commissioned for service by the WGM Board of Directors on October 12: Andy and Stephanie Abrams (Kenya), Ethan and Ashley Batschelet (Honduras), Heidi Buell (Honduras), Brandon Kuba (Japan), Mark and Eszti Landerholm (Hungary), and Justin and Debby Williams (Uganda). Remember these faithful servants and their families as they impact the world for Christ through their varied ministries around the globe.


Honduras: WGM Honduras partners with several local ministries to serve the needs of children throughout the country. The Manuelito Project serves needy kids in Talanga. Amor, Fe, Y Esperanza ministers to the children of parents who work in the city dump of Tegucigalpa. Brazos de Jesús serves the children of parents who work in the city dump in San Pedro Sula. Pray for the missionary staff and national Christians as they facilitate work teams and help with funding and providing workers to support these vital ministries to the least of these throughout Honduras.
Texas/Mexico Border Ministries: This week is Spiritual Emphasis Week at Taylor Christian School in McAllen, Texas. Lift up visiting pastor Ryan Bash and his work team from Ohio. May they be a blessing and receive a blessing during their time with the staff and students. Pray also that they will have God’s words as they share with the students about His love for them.
Uganda: The Parliament of Uganda is struggling with some issues that are not easily resolved and have the potential for creating greater difficulties for the country. Join Jeff and Christine Stanfield in praying to the Lord, who holds the hearts of kings and rulers in His hands (Proverbs 21:1).
Harvest Workers: Join the Luke 10:2 Challenge, praying every day at 10:02—a.m. or p.m., your choice—for more missionaries who will partner with WGM in the Great Commission. (If you or someone you know is interested in serving, contact
