Congratulations to CHRISTINA and NATHAN DURAN on the birth of their daughter, Maia Elaine, who was born on April 21, 2023, in Argentina!
EUROPE: Pray for a STAFF MEMBER as she takes her language acquisition test this Thursday. It is a big test for her, covering a lot of complicated grammar.
UNITED STATES: Pray for safe travels for JOE JOHNS and CARLOS MEDINA as they attend the Missionary Church East Central Region Conference this Friday.
SPAIN: Pray for DAVE and REBECCA BUMPUS as they hold their annual Bike Blessing this Saturday. Pray that the attendees will see the unity amongst the members of the Tribe of Judah, who will be coming from England, Ireland, Sweden, Germany, and Denmark.
GERMANY: RICK DUGAN reports, “A STAFF MEMBER in Germany who typically ministers to Jewish people was recently surprised to find that God had opened a door for him to cast a vision for the Great Commission among Ukrainian pastors who had fled to Germany because of the war. Out of that group, twenty have continued to meet in homes to receive bi-weekly training and coaching as they minister to other Ukrainian refugees. New groups of Jesus-followers are forming in two cities, and a realistic goal is that within six months there will be twenty groups, within a year they will multiply to fifty. One of the primary ways the gospel has spread since the days of the New Testament has been through refugees and immigrants.”
MEXICO: Pray for STEPHANIE BAKER as she continues her internship teaching ESL in Mexico. Stephanie is from Fleetwood Bible Church in Pennsylvania, and is working in conjunction with Pastors Lucio and Rosa Ontiveros.
ETHIOPIA: Pray for a STAFF MEMBER who is currently in Ethiopia meeting with disciples.
AFRICA: EZEKIEL and his ministry partners request prayer for the Maguzawa community in Nigeria, who they recently visited with. Ezekiel states, “These believers are bold for Jesus. Yet, they need your prayer support for more spirit of boldness to envelop them as they live under threats daily.”
URUGUAY: Praise! TIM and SUSANA GRETSCHMANN recently baptized three disciples. Pray for these disciples as they continue to follow Christ. Pray for one disciple, Raquel, whose friends are being critical of her becoming a Christian.
GUINEA: BRUCE and DAWN CLUCKIE request prayer for believers in Heremakono and Kemaka to have renewed interest in following Jesus.
Pray as items for SHIFT National Conference and the World Partners retreat for staff taking place in July are finalized.
