Prayer for Wednesday – East Asia

From R and N

Hi Living Hope family,

It’s been one year since we’ve started our journey in Asia!  We’ve had a full year of language learning and ministering to the people of our city.  We know that we have only been able to live and work in such a place because of God’s grace and your prayers!

Our main focus for the past year has been language learning.  It’s a very difficult language, but our ability to speak it has been progressing well.  We’ve been able to learn several ways to present the good news and how to disciple in the local language.  We’ve been blessed to be the part of seeing people come to believe in Christ and now have started starting discipling these people.  The Father really seems to be moving lately.  Hearts are becoming open more every day and in a city with less than 1% Christians the Gospel is being heard and accepted!

This kind of movement of the Spirit doesn’t come without spiritual warfare though.  Lately a lot of our national fellow believers have been met with more than usual amounts of opposition from authorities.  However, even in the face of this our national friends are not backing away from their sharing and seem to have an even stronger passion to meet this opposition with a stronger gospel witness that is even spreading to other cities outside of our own!

This summer we have had students from Living Hope come to help engage the university campus here.  They were able to build relationships with English-speaking students and share the gospel with them and they also saw students believe.  This has been phenomenal and very helpful as we don’t always have time to engage this campus yet as we are still in full time language learning.  However, there is still a lot more work to be done on the campus and in other parts of our city.

As we look forward to the next year, we are expecting for God to be at work.  Our focus in our city of 1.5 million is to reach new people with the good news, disciple, and start new house churches.  We believe for us that means starting in our neighborhood and with the people we see on a daily basis.  Pray for us as we continue to share with neighbors, shop keepers, and friends we make in our community.  Pray for those who have already chosen to believe that they would be obedient to Christ in sharing with others and building His church.

As we press on in the work, we want our Living Hope family to join in the work by praying for…

1) Continued boldness both from us and from local believers

2) That Father would continue to blind the eyes of those who seek to do harm or to oppose the movement of the Spirit that we are seeing lately.

3) That Father would continue to strengthen the relationships we already have and help us build new relationships with others.

4) That Father would bless our language efforts and give us endurance for long class days and that our words would be understood by the local people.

5) Pray for our marriage.  That we would be a good example and illustration of how Christ loves the Church and vice versa.

I thank my God upon every remembrance of you, Always in every prayer of mine for you all making request with joy, For your fellowship in the gospel from the first day until now.

  • Speaking with aplomb, Maximova told her female listeners that they actually gain power by losing their sense of entitlement.
    Like the simple past tense, the present perfect tense is used to indicate
    an action that took place in the past. Similarly, you can remind yourself that “It’s all good” even when you can’t
    quite get there, and it will begin to broaden your perspective and ease your judgments about
    things not working out like you may have wanted.
