The small office car broke down while Peter and David were on the way from Abuja, but they were able to get it back on the road again! Praise God for protecting and providing for them. Pray that God helps Peter as he attempts to sell the car and replace it. 

Pray that the printers in the office will begin working! We need to be able to reliably print materials. One of the computers is also malfunctioning. In addition, they are having trouble with the internet at the office, pray that all technical difficulties are resolved as the enemy tries to prevent our trainings by any means possible! 

We’re working on a memorandum of understanding with one of the larger denominations in Nigeria, COCIN (church of Christ in Nigeria), pray that this all goes smoothly! 

Comfort reports on the 11th, 4 men were killed and 7 women kidnapped in the north, please pray for the families of the bereaved and the safe return of the kidnapped women. One of Comfort’s friends in ministry, Falmata, has also lost her father, please pray for her!

Pray about Rick’s situation, he wasn’t able to leave before his visa expired, so he needs to figure out how to get out! Pray God is with him and causes this to go smoothly.

Pray that Peter’s visa application goes through! We would like to fly him to the US this fall to meet people and coordinate efforts more closely with our US office. 

Some of the people for our Kano training this week couldn’t make it in time to the training, because they were trying to travel from Katsina, and it was difficult. Pray for safety as they are still en route and for the trainers currently in Kano that God gives them wisdom and grace as they adjust. 

The former sheik is having some difficulty coming to the training, pray for travel mercies and additional strength for the other trainers.

Praise God for all the funding that has gone through for the student training! 

Pray for enduring peace for the country, and peace between Ethiopia and Eritrea!
