Missions Prayer Requests

Week of 2 May 2021

 

HOME MISSIONARIES                                                                            

 

Life Network: (COS) Join Life Network’s Walk for Life, Saturday, June 5th and help raise funds for this ministry!  This year you can walk at Memorial Park or in your own neighborhoods.  They will hold a 5K Fun Run at 8:00 AM, followed by a kid’s race at 9:00 AM.  The Walk for Life goal is to raise funds for the ministry, educate community members about Life Network and make a strong life-affirming statement to our community.  Pray for the success of this event.  Pray the people of Colorado Springs will make a bold stand for the sanctity of life.  Life Network hopes to raise $430,000!  Register for this event on their website at elifenetwork.com. 

 

Springs Rescue Mission: (COS) Pray for the spiritual health ministries at Springs Rescue Mission.  Pray for Sunday morning services led by Christians of Youth With A Mission (YWAM).  Pray for these believers as they teach from the Gospels and pray for residents at the Rescue Mission.  Pray for other ministries such as the Monday and Thursday morning Bible study and the Monday evening Bible study.  Pray these ministries will impact the homeless of Colorado Springs for Christ.  Pray for those who minister in Jesus’ name that they convey the genuine love of Christ.

 

Isaac and Becca Herold: (Greeley, CO) Pray for Isaac and Becca as they parent three year old “Little Dude.”  He has been a part of their household for the past two months and he has brought such joy to their lives.  Pray the Lord will help them as they parent this little boy.  Pray for the upcoming core team meeting.  This meeting brings together Christian Challenge leadership who has demonstrated they are not the typical college student.  They have testified their college experience is not all about them but about serving others.  This leadership cadre has obediently stepped out of their comfort zone and has responded to Christ to make His name known to the lost at the University of Northern Colorado. 

 

FOREIGN MISSIONARIES

 

Robbyn Booker: (Spain/COS) Pray for Robbyn as she continues to get a grasp on her new duties as the main administrative and financial professional for Reach Beyond’s ministries in the Middle East, North Africa and now the new responsibility for the entire African continent!  There has been a learning curve adding central and southern Africa to her plate.  There are different currencies and exchange rates and she has had to consult Google Maps to gain an understanding where these new ministry areas are.

 

Herb and Celeste: The prayer zoom rooms from April went very well!  Thank you for “attending!”  The next one will be May 11th and will focus on the big country and its large neighbor.  This will be a one hour time of prayer concentrating on needs and updates directly from the field.  Register for this next virtual time of prayer at this web address… virtual – EastAsianPeoples.compray the Lord is honored and that there are no technical glitches.  The new English corner which met in their local church went very well.  Celeste introduced a new evangelism tool – everyone is excited about meeting again to test the tool!  Pray they will encourage this local fellowship and clearly present the Gospel in their English discussions.  Their new teammate’s visa paperwork is now in country – pray they are cleared to enter country soon.  Pray for the details surrounding H and C’s return to the US this summer to fall into place.

 

K and B:  The eight units which make up K and B’s team are making progress entering their countries.  One couple just came out of quarantine and is now in their ministry country.  Pray the other seven units will gain access to their ministry assigned areas with no complications.  K and B are enjoying their granddaughters – pray for relaxation and fun grand parenting!

 

Mark and Lona Webb: (Killarney, Ireland) Travel restrictions have been lifted within Kerry county where they live.  Pray for more loosening of restrictions as the COVID-19 virus subsides.  Ian interviewed at Muster Technical University two weeks ago – he finds out the results of the interview this week (week of April 26th).  He has several tests until the end of school, then will have the Leaving Certificate exams.  Pray he is not stressed and does his best.  Pray the Irish government will allow churches to meet.  Pray for revival in Killarney, Kerry county Ireland.  Many spouses of Grace Baptist Church members are not believers – pray for their salvation.

 

Brooks Salgado and Jaymee Collins: (COS) They have been approved to attend this summer’s Asian short term missions project.  They are both trying to raise $5,000 for this trip.  Pray for them as they get ready to minister in Asia.  Brooks will be the team leader.  Four other students will join the team from two other schools.  Pray for the missionaries their team is supporting.  COVID -19 precautions will likely cause this project to be very fluid.  Pray for a valid ministry to the people in this area.
