Prayers

There is a way to face impossibility. Invade it! Not with speech of high hopes. Not in anger. Not with resignation. But with violence. Prayer provides the vehicle for this kind of violence. Jesus taught about a matter of violence. Prayer is a matter of assault, of binding, of warfare, of invasion. Jesus taught, that things may appear impossible yet from heaven side there is a violence that can explode the impossible. How? By asking our heavenly Father with shameless boldness. Today, as you pray for our missionaries, as you pray for nationals, as you pray for nations, ask with shameless boldness for a invasion of our Father's love, mercy and grace into impossibilities.

Thank you for praying.  Your prayers are helping bring changes around the world.  Your prayers are shifting countries.  God is good.
 
Thank you for praying,

Pray for this beautiful family as they are back in the states for furlough.  Pray for refreshing, new team members, and direction for the future.
The Pursue mission team led by Kenny and Dorothy Kennedy are working hard with Tommy and Marilyn building, working in the yards and playing with lots of kids.  Pray for them as they continue to bless kids that are walking out of abandonment, despair and abuse.  Pray for Kendon Wheeler who is still dealing with the affects of the chikungunya virus and another missionary, Shelley.  Thank the Lord that Tommy and Marilyn are much better after contracting the virus.​

The church plant in Saupstadkirken ended on a very good note recently.   All the members transitioned to the church that Sean is taking over in Pinsekirken.  This church has 100 members and already new people are coming in.  Pray for new volunteers to rise up, for new relationships to form between all the generations of members.  Pray for Sean wisdom, energy and vision to pastor this congregation.​

 
The Pursue mission team, led by Rick Mitchell, recently blessed South Africa as they worked with Eagles Rising in Capetown and then traveled to Jeanne's city, Vredendal.  The team impacted students at a Bible School teaching how to lead a VBS and taught Freedom classes.  Pray as Jeanne will be teaching alongside a national from Poland as she leads the Prepare International Bible School to leaders and pastors in her community.  June 26-July 2 Jeanne will be teaching at Eagles Rising and going in to the slum areas to teach children.​

Such good reports from Carrie who began meeting with pastors' wives.  Carrie is blessing them through teaching and encouragement.  Tony continually reaches out to the pastors who also need much encouragement.  Many have been healed of hurts, their minds are being renewed and many have been healed physically by the Lord.  Tony and Carrie have been stateside raising funds and sharing their continued vision for Jacaltenango.  Pray for their family as they travel back to Guatemala soon.​

 
The Shores dream came true, the Urban Rhythm Cafe and Youth Center in Lobatse.  A license for the food truck is still in limbo with city officials.  The food truck would provide the needed $100 a day to cover the rent of the building, internships, reach 4 life clubs in schools, salaries, youth center outreach, and Friday night services.  Many, many youth of Lobatse have come to know the Lord through this avenue of outreach.  Pray for all the logistics to be finalized.  Pray for the youth to totally commit to the Lord and discipleship.  Pray for the Shores rest, health, and energy to keep up with all the ministry around them.​

Praise reports: all the family is healthy, all the missionary visas are given through 2018, more opportunities to speak and share the gospel are opening up, many people are coming to the Lord, being baptized and desiring a Bible study.  Such good news!  Pray for expanded outreach where the COTR mission team held medical clinics.  Pray for the relationships in this very poor area of Lipa to deepen.  Pray for safety as the Clendenen family steps into dark areas of despair and hopelessness.  The construction of the Camp Anihan has yet to begin, pray for this project to begin and bring unity amongst churches.​

 

 
Joe & Terri are wrapping up a trip to visit missionaries throughout Europe & Israel.  Pray for refreshing as they come home and for the east delivery of a new grandbaby!

Pray for these two couples in Israel who have dynamic churches.   Max and Tanya have a church of many Russian Jews and Sergey and Natasha are from the Ukraine reaching all nationalities in Tel Aviv.  Pray for the Holy Spirit to continue to equip them to reach the lost of Israel, such a task, but the Lord is moving and drawing all people unto Him.​

 

 
The Godwins are stateside for a year to visit many churches, ministries, and friends with the goal of creating a team for a new church plant in Estonia.  Pray for a dozen people or more to join this team to begin a new work in Estonia.  Pray for the needed finances to begin and carry this new church.  Pray for the health of Bob and Chrissy as they travel many many miles across the states to share their vision.​
