Prayer Lifeline—February 28, 2017

“You will pray to him, and he will hear you” (Job 22:27a NIV). Thank you for making an impact for missions on your knees!
Argentina: Don and Glenda Moon shared that the Cross-Cultural Missionary Training Center will begin its four-month, advanced, cross-cultural training course on March 3. The 17 students, ranging in age from mid-20s to 70, come from Argentina, Chile, Costa Rica, Mexico, and Peru. They are planning to serve in restricted access countries in the Middle East and Asia and among indigenous people groups in Latin America. Praise the Lord for these faithful workers who are heeding His call to go and to serve a world that needs the hope that is only found in Jesus Christ!
Bolivia: More than 50 students recently attended Santa Cruz Christian Learning Center’s annual high school camp with the theme Avanza (to advance). Despite being swarmed by bugs, using small communal bathrooms with no hot water, and many being plagued by a stomach illness, the trip was a success as the group banded together and provided for each other’s needs. Camper Lucas Zimmerman (son of Kurt and Cynthia Zimmerman) said, “Only the Lord knows how this week has worked in the hearts and lives of the SCCLC high schoolers. Even now, right after camp, the fruit of it all is being seen: kids being honest with themselves and each other; the birth of new friendships; the sharing of testimonies; different ones encouraging each other; everyone being challenged, encouraged, and motivated.” Continue to lift up these students as they process what they learned and experienced during the week and the staff as it reaches out to students from around the world whom they trust God will use in significant ways for His glory.
The Call Prayer Calendar (February 26–March 4): Praise God for retired missionaries who have set godly examples of service. (This praise was taken from the latest issue of The Call, WGM’s official magazine.)
Bolivia: Join the staff at SCCLC in praying that God’s Word will bear lasting fruit in the lives of those who hear it at churches, schools, and camps. Pray especially for national churches and youth groups as they hold special retreats and events this week as alternatives to Carnaval (Mardi Gras) celebrations. May God be glorified!
Kenya: The doctor’s strike in Kenya has entered its second month, increasing the responsibilities of medical staff at non-government hospitals such as Tenwek and Kijabe. Please pray for our missionary doctors and nurses as they stand in the gap, putting in long days and nights to care for the people of Kenya. May the Lord be their strength, rest, and comfort as they mourn for those they cannot save. May He also be their joy as they thank Him for those lives that are being saved—physically and spiritually. Pray also for the patients as they have to travel further for care and as elective surgeries are being postponed so critical care can be given to those with the most urgent needs.
Harvest Workers: A number of positions at the elementary and secondary levels are open at SCCLC in Bolivia for the 2017-18 school year (www.scclc.org/about/employment). Pray with us that the Lord will provide the workers needed to fill these and other vital needs on mission fields around the world. (If you or someone you know is interested in serving, contact email@example.com.)
