Stuart and Jenny Borders – Church Planters in Atlanta, GA

 

Mark and Parker Phillips – Road to Karma

 

We are having a training on storying for about 30 of our believers next week. Please pray this will be a fruitful time and a useful tool for their ministries.

R&N – Lost Cities of Asia (for security reasons, I cannot share names on the internet).

 

1) Please pray for a new contact R recently made in a town with a local brother we had not met before.  We are both engaging the same area and hope to work together in the future. Pray for a deep and strategic partnership.

2) Our girls recently started at a local kindergarten.  We are hoping the girls will start to pick up some of the local language as well as develop friendships there that will open doors for us to share with local families.

3) Pray for many opportunities to share the good news as we enter into the easter season.

 

John and Abby FisherNorthern Plains

 

Thomas Weakley – Campus Crusade at WKU

 

Jacob and Cara Stevens – Portugal

 

We just finished up a week of distributing the 4 Gospels in the second official language of Portugal, Mirandês. We were able to visit a couple of villages, and then present the local high school with free copies of the books (as that is the only high school in Portugal that studies the language). We were also able to make great contacts with government officials and are eager to look into future outreaches in the area. Pray for the seeds that were planted, and the long work ahead to reach the Mirandesas.

Next week, we are partnering with a nearby Portuguese church to use an American volunteer team for evangelism, training, and encouragement. Pray for the church in Aveiro as they reach out to the city, and for both the Americans and Portuguese to be encouraged by one another.

On a family-level, please pray for Elisabeth as she’s been having trouble sleeping well through the night. Less sleep makes for less endurance in a second culture. She’s also been slow to gain weight, which creates added stress and more doctor’s appointments. Pray for answers and wisdom, perseverance and contentment!

 

Justin Pate – Pastor, Redeemer Church

Pray for Redeemer as we work to finish the building for Easter. Also for planning and zoning meetings to go well and for certificate of occupancy
