Missions Prayer Requests

 

Home Missionaries                                                                                                    Week of 03 May 2020

 

Emily Skinner: (COS) Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, April and May Debriefing and Renewal (DAR) classes have been cancelled.  The May Compass training program has been postponed.  Staff who are working from home have been moving registrants to later class dates.  Emily has taken some time to explore curriculum changes for future classes.  Pray for MTI’s learn/grow process that leadership and staff would humbly keep their eyes on God’s instruction on improving programs.  Pray for Emily and colleagues that they will make wise decisions regarding personal, team and organizational priorities.

 

Kevin Green: (COS) Pray for Kevin as he continues to call pastors to schedule future Evangelical Explosion training sessions in their churches.  Pray pastors will be open to teaching EE classes to their church families.

Isaac and Becca Herold: (COS) They have been hired to lead the Christian Challenge ministry at the University of Northern Colorado in Greely, Colorado!  Pray for Isaac and Becca as they finish up the work at UCCS while meeting remotely with students.  Pray for the transition to their new campus, home and church.  We are happy for them, yet sad to see them leave our church family.  Pray for Kent and Elizabeth Slack as they mourn the loss of their colleagues and partners in ministry.

Foreign Missionaries

 

Oswald and Amanda: Rocky had a great birthday this past Monday!  There were some gifts to tear into.  And later this week he will have a party with some play time with some local friends.  Pray for this precious family as they wait on word from their company when they can return to their normal ministry area.  Pray for their continued language training.

Dusty and Ashley Jackson: (Near Seoul, South Korea) Dusty has incorporated devotions into his class times.  Pray the Lord will use these times to reach these students and help them grow spiritually even though physically separated.  Pray they will have access to the Bible and materials that will help them grow and learn. 

Mark and Lona Webb: (Killarney, Ireland) Weeks ago twins Amy and Grace were born.  Grace is still in the hospital. Pray for this precious little life and her parents.  Praise – More people have been able to “attend” the Grace Baptist Zoom service.  Pray for how the children can “tune in” to watch the weekly Sunday school lesson.

Herb and Celeste: Pray for H and C as they use their years of ministry experience to author stories for their company about reaching the lost for Christ in their part of the world.  May these stories inspire others to follow our friends in ministry.  H and C are looking for a church home.  Pray the Lord will lead them to the right church.  Pray their long-term visas are approved before their temporary visas run out. 

K and B: Pray for all our friends in EA as their company reviews the future configuration of ministry in that part of the world.

Robbyn Booker: (COS/Spain) As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, Reach Beyond has seen an increase of listeners and responses to their programming in the “Region Beyond.”  Listeners are posting reactions and questions prompting more opportunity to share with them.  Some listeners who are not Christian are submitting prayer requests.  Reach Beyond partners are able to chat with these people who wish to have deeper interaction.  Pray these follow-up interactions will lead them to put their faith in Jesus Christ!
