“I thank my God upon every remembrance of you, . . .
being confident of this very thing,
that He who has begun a good work in you
will complete it until the day of Jesus Christ.”

Thank you for your commitment to pray for our team while we serve in Ethiopia. . . We trust that the Lord has big plans for this small team, knowing that Job 42:2 says that “He can do all things and that no plan of His will be thwarted!” We are planning to lead the sponsored kids in a summer camp, but we also may be used to help with some construction that is going on around the shelter and Great Hope Church. We are all ready to be flexible and an encouragement to our friends on the ground in Ethiopia.
. . . Here are our requests:
Pray that we will honor God with our attitudes, speech and actions. Romans 6:18 “You have been set free from sin and have become slaves to righteousness.”
Pray that as a team we are an encouragement and a help to the Project 61 ministry. 2 Cor. 2:14 “But thanks be to God, who always leads us in triumph in Christ, and manifests through us the sweet aroma of the knowledge of Him in every place.”
Pray that as we step foot into Korah, and our surrounded by crowds, that the Holy Spirit will impress upon us the heart and mind of God for His people. Romans 8:27 “And he who searches our hearts knows the mind of the Spirit, because the Spirit intercedes for the saints in accordance with God’s will.”
Pray that we will listen and respond to the Holy Spirit and will have discernment to know His timing. James 1:19 “My dear brothers, take note of this: Everyone should be quick to listen, slow to speak and slow to become angry,”
Pray for the health of our team members as we travel and on the ground. We have both been fighting a cold and cough the past week or two. We need to be healthy before we leave.
Pray for our families that will be “holding down the fort” while we are away. Pray for them to have fresh strength each day and joy in serving the Lord from this side of the world. Lamentations 3:23 “Great is his faithfulness; his mercies begin afresh each morning.”
Pray for favor with the airlines and immigration/customs officials. Proverbs 3:3-4 “Let love and faithfulness never leave you; bind them around your neck, write them on the tablet of your heart. Then you will win favor and a good name in the sight of God and man.”
. . . Thank you for praying fervently for us. Prayer is where the “real” work of missions is found. We take your job as prayer partners very seriously and are so grateful for you.
The earnest prayer of a righteous person has great power and produces wonderful results. James 5:16
