Prayer Letter/Ministry Update


Prayer Requests/Answers to Prayer

December 2018 - Here are our prayer requests for this month:

1) PLEASE PRAY for our friendship evangelism ministries during the Christmas season.  We will have several “extra” opportunities over the coming weeks, opportunities to weave the story of Emmanuel, of the Messiah, into our conversations and interactions with our friends and acquaintences who are followers of a major world religion.  PLEASE PRAY that the Holy Spirit would saturate our words with His power and understanding.  PLEASE PRAY that our friends would be able to see, understand, and come to know the whole truth of who Jesus the Messiah is.  PLEASE PRAY for Sam, Ruth, Moses, Bob, and the many others with whom we continually interact, and with whom we seek to find ways of moving them along in their journeys of faith.  PLEASE PRAY for a break through, as only the Spirit could do and accomplish, in the lives of our friends and contacts. 

2) PLEASE PRAY for safe travels.  We will be doing a fair bit of traveling over the next month, including numerous miles on the road, a few flights, and who knows what all else!  PLEASE PRAY for safety along the way.  PLEASE PRAY for good health as we walk through this time of going and coming.  PLEASE PRAY for times-of-refreshing as we take a bit of a break from our regular schedules.  PLEASE PRAY for divine interactions along the way, leading us to interact with the people that Father wants us to encounter in our lives; who knows just what He has in store for us!  PLEASE PRAY for a good time of celebrating Christmas…Emmanuel…God With Us, as well as a good time of welcoming in the New Year and all that God has planned for us in 2019!

3) PLEASE PRAY for a good finish to this last year of the current program-year at the nursing school. Last week was very hard and sad when we had to let go one of our students because of academic difficulties. PLEASE PRAY for Joy as she works through this disappointment, and as she seeks God's direction for her life in this time of change. PLEASE PRAY for the remaining students as this last trimester is very busy and stressful for them. PLEASE PRAY for good comprehension and recollection of all that they are being taught. PLEASE PRAY for good integration of their practical skills along side of the book-knowledge that they are taught. PLEASE PRAY for good health for the students, so that sickness doesn't distract from their times of learning and application. PLEASE PRAY for one student in particular who is pregnant and is expecting to deliver just after the end of the school year. PLEASE PRAY for the four professors/teachers in the nursing school: Sandie, Terry, David, and Wendy. We THANK THE LORD for the spiritual growth that we continue to see happening in the lives of the students; what a JOY to see the increasing depth and maturity in their Christian lives! PLEASE PRAY that the Lord would continue His great work along these lines, accomplishing ALL that He has for each of the students (and profs) involved in the nursing school.

And these are our prayer requests for this month.  As always...THANK YOU VERY MUCH for your ongoing partnership with us in our work here in Gabon; can’t do it without you!  Blessings…
