Pray for God’s anointing for CLBC President Ye. His own church is currently under-staffed and he has many synodical responsibilities outside his church. Pray that God will raise up new staff to join and serve the church ministry team.
Praise God for the home and grounds provided for Paul and Teresa in the village where they will move to live and serve among an unreached people group. Praise God for all who contributed to building their home.
Pray that God would speak to those who will serve as the dedicated core for the new church plant in Ishinomaki. Pray for Dean and Linda Bengtson as they proclaim the gospel in word and deed in that city.
ray that God’s call to serve his mission locally and globally will stir in fresh and new ways in our congregations. Pray for a clear sense of the truth of humanity’s lostness apart from Christ.
Pray for Nathanael and Carrie and their children as they report to our churches how God is working in Chad. Pray for quality times of renewal in body, emotions and spirit. Happy birthday Nathanael.
Pray for China Lutheran Seminary as they train pastors and church leaders. Pray that these leaders would help churches to reach out in mission to their friends and families with God’s saving message.
Pray for tomorrow’s concert at the community center in Dean and Linda Bengtson’s neighborhood. Three professional Christian musicians from Korea will share the gospel in words and songs. Pray for God’s spirit to move in people’s hearts.
As violence continues in Africa, pray that the government of Chad would have wisdom and strength to defeat radical movements. Pray that God would use the church in Chad to bring healing and reconciliation between people groups and between religious communities.
