PRAYER REQUESTS

"God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble". Psalm 46:1

  • Pray for our nation!
  • Please pray for Melissa and Michael Oostdyk. Melissa's father, Ronald Little went to be with the Lord on Saturday, May 30, 2020. Please pray for Melissa and her family for peace and comfort during this time.
  • Nester McSween-Abel would like prayers for complete healing from his diagnosis of lymphoma cancer.
  • Greg Cornwell is on day 14 of chemo...his white blood cell count is up and either his body has started the healing process way earlier than expected or the chemo is not working. Greg has asked to pray they don't find Leukemia when he is tested again and that God is healing the body faster than they could imagine.
  • Please be in continued prayer for Kristen Mixson the neurologist delivered the news that her tumor was super rare, it is NOT CANCEROUS, they were able to get at least 75% of it in surgery, and that she will most likely not need radiation!! Praise Jesus!!
  • Please continue to pray for Austin Somerville. He is making amazing strides at the Shepherd Rehab Center in Atlanta. Please continue to pray for his recovery and his mom Kasie.
GLOBAL NEWS OPPORTUNITY TO PRAY: The World
  • As we continue to navigate Covid-19 as a community, let's remember to pray for all those affected worldwide. Pray for those in under-developed countries or areas with poor access to healthcare, health-care workers, and those sick from the virus.
  • Pray for our black brothers and sisters who are hurting right now. Pray for the families of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery and countless others who have been killed due to racial violence. 
  • Over the last 27 years, Pastor Hamid Shabanov has been arrested three times and heavily fined for having a small, unregistered house church in rural Azerbaijan. At a recent meeting at the US Embassy in Baku, Azerbaijan, with Pastor Shabanov, we were thrilled to learn that recently the Azeri government granted his church permission to meet on Saturdays for two hours! Pastor Shabanov and the church are rejoicing over this victory and are very grateful for all who prayed for them. (Via: Frontline Missions)

MISSIONARY HIGHLIGHT: Foth

Nathan and Rene Foth have been on staff with Campus Crusade for Christ (Cru) for more than 15 years and have served on college campuses in East Asia, Sweden, Argentina, and Dominican Republic. They have also served on short-term trips in Central Asia and South Asia. Most recently, the Foths served in Charlotte with Bridges International, an international student ministry on the campus of UNC-Charlotte. As of December 2019, the Foths are serving with international students in Sydney, Australia. They have three daughters: Anabelle, Elianna, and Lillian, whom they consider their secret weapons in welcoming and building relationships with international students from China, India and the Middle East.

Way to Pray: The Foths are officially in Australia! Please pray for them as they continue to settle into their new home. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, they have been set back in getting fully plugged into their new ministry area and building community. They have worked hard, though, and continue to seek out ministry opportunities and new relationships. Specifically pray for their daughters to make good friends.

MISSIONARY AND PARTNER UPDATES
  • Continue to pray for Joy Anglea as she recovers from hernia surgery. The surgery went well, but the recovery is slow and painful.
  • Pray for the Gfeller family as they continue to learn the German language. Learning the language well will continue to open doors for them to serve well. Please pray that they are able to learn it well and use it as a powerful tool to serve others. 
  • Pray for Sam Ingrassia as he prepares for two E3 trips to Colombia in the fall. Pray for the E3 team as they get ready for these trips.
