Prayer Requests

  • Please pray for Kayla Sanford who is expecting and has been in and out of the hospital recently with some complications.
  • Please pray for Art Sanchez, who was recently diagnosed with cancer.
  • Please pray for Justin Brooks, who has major back surgery coming up next week.
  • Please pray for Ben Bounds who is helping national pastors in the 1040 Window. Last quarter, the Lord allowed the 132 men in the four countries where they work to evangelize in 489 Villages, establish 217 new home Bible study groups or house churches, witness 1,181 professions of faith and baptize 776 new believers.
  • Please pray for John and Robin Harris, our missionaries to Belize. February marked their seventh year in Belize, and they have begun the construction on the land the Lord provided for them.
  • Local Requests
    • Pray that we would have God’s power to do what He has called us to do and that we would not do it in our own ability.
    • Pray that God would give us boldness to share the gospel with those who need to hear it.
    • Pray that God would open our eyes and hearts to see and love those around us in word and deed who need to know Jesus.
  • National Requests

    • Pray for Christians and churches to be aware of God’s presence transforming their lives, and that they would be surrendered to what God wants to do in them.
    • Pray for the next generation to receive truth and live as an example to the believers in seeking after Christ.
  • Global Requests
    • China – Population: 1,425,178,782 – Christian: 5.7%
    • The largest human migration in history is happening in China as millions of rural workers move to the urban areas to find work and support their families. This leads to overcrowding and unemployment as migrant workers are left without basic social services or educational opportunities. Pray that Christians in these cities would reach out in compassion with the gospel to these millions of desperate people.
    • Pray for the continued growth of the Chinese church. God has truly done a miraculous work in a country that has opposed and oppressed those who claim Christ and refuse government regulation. From an estimated 2.7 million believers in 1975 to over 75 million in just 35 years, God’s church continues to move forward. Pray that God’s people continue to have boldness in their faith and that their genuine love would be seen by so many around them.
    • Qiang, Yadu people in China – population: 32,000
    • 99.99% Ethnic religions – .01% Christian
    • 70% Buddhist – .01% Christian
    • The Yadu Qiang live in the central part of China, and assimilate polytheism and animism into their religious beliefs. This particular group of the Qiang people live far from or have cultural and language barriers from any believers close to them. Most of them live completely untouched by Christianity and the gospel.
    • Pray that God would open their eyes to the love of that God of Heaven Who loves them and wants to free them from bondage and spiritual oppression.
    • Pray for an unstoppable movement of Christ to change the spiritual atmosphere and allow for the Yadu Qiang to accept Christ freely.

Featured Missionary

The Shook Family
Thailand

  1. In January and February, they have had church-wide soul winning in several villages just north of their church; one evening their group saw 12 people accept Christ. 
  2. They also met an elderly Thai lady who had lived in Malaysia for many years. She was a believer but had lived through much persecution while abroad. She moved back to Thailand a few months ago and had been praying that the Lord would send fellow believers so she could find a place to worship Him. Despite poor health, her joy is evident as she has not missed a Sunday or Wednesday service. 
  3. Another young man visited Sunday services several times, and recently accepted the Lord. He has been praying for his girlfriend to be saved. 
  4. They will host their annual Bible English camp in early April for students who will be on school break. Students learn English and enjoy fun activities, along with a clear Gospel presentation every day. This is a great opportunity to reach families who might not be interested or willing to visit one of the churches.
