Praise and Prayer ~ March 14-21

Nigeria

On Wednesday Peter and his team will go to another theological school to set up another training! They are training 150 at the UMCN theological school right now. One of the professors said we should call the gospel card the miracle card, because it is so clear and works so well. Three of the theological students rededicated their lives to Christ, saying they had not clearly understood the gospel before now! The seminary said they want every graduating set to participate in this training. Praise God, and pray for these new trainees!

Sam is leading a team in Niger state not far from Ilorin, training another 150 people to evangelize and follow up with new believers. Pray for the trainees and also for the team as they travel home!

Ezekiel’s son is sick, but he is improving. Sam’s wife last week was not well, they went to the hospital, they gave her medication, so she is feeling better. Ahmet’s mother has been sick as well. Pray God would fully heal and restore all those who are sick.

Pray for Peter’s family, tomorrow is the burial of his uncle who died last week. Pray God will give them peace and provision. 

Pray about the open doors we are seeing in the ministry, that God would help the team articulate what they are going to do well as people ask them about the training. Pray God leads us to the right people to work with, that the ministry would prosper and move forward.

Pray about the conference in Jalingo, as we will likely have to cancel it, for God to provide for another time!

Continue to pray for the television program we are running in northern Nigeria as people hear about the gospel in Muslim communities for perhaps the first time!

USA

Continue to pray for wisdom as the coronavirus spreads as to how we should respond. Pray for the US as people grapple with the sickness. 

Praise about Stacey’s brother, he is cancer free!

Pray for Dara as she is having breathing issues still after a long illness and two miscarriages, and Ian as he has a worsening cough.

Pray about our finances as our fundraiser has been cancelled. Pray that God meets our needs creatively!

Ethiopia

Pray for our Ethiopian team, the country is mandating no meetings or conferences, so we had to cancel our trainings! Both the trainings that Eskinder ad Rich were going to run.

The Eritrean leaders want to have more trainings with their people! Please pray that we can make this happen as soon as it is safe.

Pray for Eskinder as he continues to plan for the fall, we are hoping that the coronavirus pandemic abates in time for us to run the 10-20,000 person conference in December.
