“How, then, can they call on the one they have not believed in? And how can they believe in the one of whom they have not heard? And how can they hear without someone preaching to them? And how can anyone preach unless they are sent? As it is written: “How beautiful are the feet of those who bring good news!” (Romans 10:14-15 NIV). Join us in praising God for these “beautiful feet” stories and in asking Him to provide for the highlighted needs.


Honduras: David and Debbie Hawk praise God for safe travels to Paraguay and that the vision conference on biblical worldview had good attendance and a good spirit. Keep praying for lasting results as the worldwide Church moves forward in fulfilling God’s intentions.

Lithuania: Shushan Richardson shared that the semester ended well at LCC International University. She is thankful for the time she was able to spend with students outside of class and for the number of opportunities she had to talk more personally about Jesus. One student told her that it’s okay that their Bible class is finished, because now he knows he can read and understand the Bible on his own. Praise the Lord! Pray with Shushan that her students will continue to genuinely seek and ultimately find God as their personal Savior.

Papua New Guinea: The Embi Village and District water project is officially complete! Butch and Leatha Jenkins thank everyone involved in the project, including missionaries, volunteers, and men from the village. Water is now being piped from the district church roof, allowing new water tanks along the road to be filled for many to use. May the people of PNG not only be filled with clean water for their physical bodies but may they also find eternal refreshment through the living water of Christ.

Uganda: The Lord is truly blessing the ministries of Brady and Alicia Searl. Alicia is grateful for the emotional healing she has seen as part of her ongoing trauma counseling for hundreds of refugees in Uganda. Brady praises God that Africa Gospel Church pastors and university students are open to his biblical financial training and that God continues to open doors for him to share about being good stewards of their finances and resources. Pray that God will meet the many refugees pouring into Uganda from South Sudan and bring healing in the name of Jesus. Pray also that Brady will have more opportunities to share financial trainings and build more relationships with Ugandans.


Honduras: Larry and Angie Overholt and the staff at Choluteca School of Nursing request continued prayers as they work to pay the remaining balance for the property that was recently purchased next door for the expansion of the school. Please pray that God will provide the finances needed by September 2018 so the school can reach even more high school students who are seeking to become medical professionals.

Kenya: Eli and Krista Horn reported that the recent drought in East Africa has caused soaring prices and made certain foods scarce or even impossible to find. There has been a nationwide butter shortage in Kenya for the past several months, and many Kenyans have experienced difficulty in obtaining maize flour and sugar, which are used daily for ugali and chai, because of the high prices. Pray that recent rains will bring an end to the drought and high prices.

Uganda: During Ramadan, which will be held May 27 through June 25, WGM Uganda invites you to join them in praying that God’s love will be made known among Muslims.

Harvest Workers: Pray that more people will answer God’s call to be “beautiful feet” to those who need to hear His good news! (If you or someone you know is interested in serving, contact

The Call Prayer Calendar (May 21-27): Please pray that God will thwart the enemy’s attempts to hold people captive as they live in fear in Papua New Guinea. Pray that He will raise up people who are willing to surrender their comforts and dedicate themselves to bringing about God’s kingdom in PNG. (Available ministry opportunities on this field are being highlighted this week as part of the “Special Edition: The Harvest Field” April–June 2017 issue of The Call, WGM’s official magazine.)
