OUR LATEST PRAYER NEEDS

(Updated March 2019)

LATEST NEEDS:

  • For us as we transition back to Ambrym.

    • In a week or two we will be moving back to our home on Ambrym. The kids will be adjusting to homeschool and village life again. Please pray for their relationships with local kids.

  • For a good family routine.

    • Please pray for us to find a good school/meal/ministry schedule that works for our family. Everyday things are harder with a new baby in the mix.

  • For the distribution and use of the Gospel of Mark around the island.

    • Mark has just been printed and we are looking forward to our friends discovering Jesus in a new way through the Scripture in Rral language!

  • For Spirit-filled homeschooling and ministry on Ambrym.

    • Without the Spirit filling us and helping us our homeschooling isn’t very kind, patient, gentle or loving. Our attempts to make disciples and promote God’s word are not very joyful or faithful. These things the Spirit works in us as we are submitted to Him. Please pray for our submission to Him and to His empowering of our labours.

ONGOING NEEDS:

  • For our family members

    • Casey, Valerie, Beckett, Julian and Micaiah, to be passionate and obedient disciples of Jesus.

  • For special help.

    • from God's Spirit to learn, remember, speak, and even learn to view our world here in the local language, Rral.

  • For wisdom and Spiritual insight.

    • for our teammates, Houghton Richards and Laura Thulesen as well as the local men and women they work with to translate the Bible into the Rral language.

 

UPDATES ON PREVIOUS NEEDS:

  • For preparation to return to Vanuatu.

    • The Lord helped us in all our prep to leave the US and we were able to get all our Visas and needed documents.

  • For baby Micaiah's transition.

    • It was a long day of travel with Micaiah but he made it! He is doing well adjusting to the heat and time change. We are still working on establishing good sleeping routines.

  • For our friends and family we leave behind for a few years.

    • It was hard to say “see you later” but we lean on God’s grace while we are far from family.

  • For our eyes to be "fixed" on Jesus as a family.

    • The Lord has helped us carve out some family “Bible time” in our transitions. We hope to get into better family worship times as we develop a new rhythm again.

 

We really do value your prayers. We look forward to glorifying God with you as we watch God move together!

...pray also for us, that God may open to us a door for the word, to declare the mystery of Christ...
— Colossians 4:3
Never worry about anything. But in every situation let God know what you need in prayers and requests while giving thanks.
— Philippians 4:6
