Jeremy & Joy – SECURE

    • They are beginning a new approach to making contacts by doing “Prayer Drives”. They get in their vehicle and drive to the different people groups and pray for them.
    • Pray as they hear the needs of the people, that they hear the voice of God directing them how to move forward with the gospel now that they know the heart of the people.
    • Pray for protection, as the enemy doesn’t like this work.

Dan & Teresa- SECURE

    • They returned from the Christian Leaders Fellowship World Conference in Houston, Texas.
    • They are still grieving the loss of their 15 month old grand baby. Continue to pray for God’s comfort.


Glenn & Mary- SECURE

  • Saturday they did an outreach called “Story for the Soul”. Ask God to continue to work on the hearts that heard.
  • Pray for the follow-up appointments that will be made to encourage those who heard to take that step of faith
  • Pray for protection, as these countries are not friends to Christianity

Tanner & Kelsey- Secure

    • Pray as Tanner has submitted documents for continued registration to stay in country

Roy & Jennifer- Europe

  • For Lara as she grows in her new understanding of Jesus, her decision in terms of school, and that her boyfriend left her because of her new faith.
  • For our Egyptian friend Mina who is marrying an American missionary, Nicole. We have been doing pre-marital counseling with them.  This is especially necessary due to the fact that they come from two quite different cultures.
