Dan Lampinen had a large mass removed from his kidney. Please pray for peace and healing. 

Please pray for those that are suffering from sickness and loss as the Holidays approach. 

GLOBAL NEWS OPPORTUNITY TO PRAY: India
"Pastor Bryan Nerren from Tennessee has been making short-term missions trips to India for seventeen years to train local believers to be effective Sunday School teachers. Though aware that India’s Hindu government has increased its persecution of Christians, Pastor Nerren has been committed to risk-taking Gospel advance. On his most recent trip in October, Nerren was detained by the authorities on a technicality. In addition to confiscating his passport, the judge banned him from leaving the country. His next hearing is scheduled for December 12. (via Frontline Missions)" Source: Frontline Missions.

Way to Pray: Please pray for Pastor Nerren as well as for Indian believers who suffer for Christ in a country that is hostile to the Cross.     
MISSIONARY HIGHLIGHT: Rice

Carolyn serves in the country of Georgia and its neighboring countries, working mainly with women and children. She has a passion for leading people to Jesus Christ and showing them how God and His Word can bring healing and restoration. Through intensive Bible studies for post-abortion healing and more, women come to know God as their Healer and Redeemer. They come to have a passion for God's Word as they learn that His Word is relevant for today and is sufficient! Carolyn also trains leaders in biblical counseling and works to develop and train national leaders in each city to carry on these ministries. In the summers, Carolyn works with Christian camps for at-risk youth and helps with camps for refugees, orphans, and disabled children.

Way to Pray: Please pray for many opportunities to share the gospel through our winter holiday events. My church youth have special outreaches during this time, and I have many guests during the holiday season, with increased opportunities to share my faith around the holiday themes. We had an oral-story telling training as a way to reach Muslim women. My Azeri colleagues and I need to develop a plan of how to implement this training in the context of post-abortion healing. This work will take place in the fall and winter. Please pray for wisdom and creativity.
