OUR LATEST PRAYER NEEDS

(Updated June 2019)

LATEST NEEDS:

  • For an excitement and commitment to use the Gospel of Mark by local leadership in their communities.

    • There are sometimes obstacles that keep people from using and valuing God’s word in their language. Would you pray that God would be preparing people for the first Gospel (Mark) to be given out at an upcoming church leaders workshop?

  • Beckett asks for strength from the Lord to not listen to the lies his friends here tell him.

    • This is a culture that is afraid of many things. Parents often use fear of monsters or spirits to keep their children in line. Beckett is already experiencing his friends warning him of “devils” (evil spirits) on the road. He keeps telling them Jesus is more powerful. Please pray for Beckett’s faith and witness among his friends.

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 us as we transition back to Ambrym.

    • We had a rough first couple of weeks due to sickness and sleepless baby but we have found ourselves settling in now. The Lord sustained us and continues to do so!

  • For a good family routine.

    • We are still adjusting to life with a baby and juggling the household and schooling tasks. Please keep praying peace and patience to reign in our hearts through Christ.

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

    • We haven’t distributed Mark to the communities yet but are going to hold a teaching workshop for leaders in the churches in a few weeks as the first step. Stay tuned!

  • For Spirit-filled homeschooling and ministry on Ambrym.

    • As you can imagine we have good days and not so good days. Please keep praying for God’s Spirit to sow peace, patience, kindness, goodness, and gentleness, faithfulness and self-control into our day.

 

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
