Please pray for this week to be fruitful.

Pray for peace and for protection over the people in my group as well. They are dealing with death in one family, marriage relationships, and other family issues with children. I am happy to see that after talking and listening to the Holy Spirit, they are still choosing to follow what Jesus says and move in that way, no matter the circumstances.

ASIA: A staff member would like prayer for balancing organizational meetings/responsibilities with their ministry team and also more direct discipleship with individuals, the church, and Mongolian friends. “Jesus is reminding me to stay focused on him and the simple beauty of the Great Commission. This is the motivation and foundation for all that I do, family, organizational discussions and decisions, and mostly personal relationships with various people.”

SPAIN: David & Esther de la Rosa ask for prayer for a group of young people who want to come this summer to have a cross-cultural experience. One of the goals in this experience is that each of them can make a disciple in that time.
