Praise and Prayer December 18th!

 

Nigeria: 

Praise

  • Sam is safe after his travels!
  • Our friend and partner, Nuhu, the head of NLFA needed a serious eye-surgery, it has been successful, and he is back in Jos!
  • Praise God for journey mercies to Nassarawa state; we now have an open door with ECWA. They want us to train all their pastors in the region so they can then train their elders!

Prayer

  • Peter’s wife is seriously sick with hepatitis! Please pray for her healing
  • Pray for safety for Maiduguri (especially Comfort and her friends) as they are still under the threat of attack by the Boko Haram. 
  • The NGOs working in Baga have left, scared off by the Boko Haram warning letter. Pray for protection for that region, and mercy as the aid organizations leave.

Cameroon: 

Praise

  • Praise God for the continued safety of Florence, her family, and our volunteer trainers! 
  • Thank God for the ministry of our volunteer trainers, particularly Killian and Linda, who have been hard at work evangelizing and following up with new believers. 

Prayer

  • Killian has attempted to reach out to freedom-fighters. Several expressed interest, but most of them said that their demons protected them better than God. Florence told us that many young people are beginning to turn to the occult. Pray for them, that they will turn to the Lord instead of the false “protection” of the enemy!
  • Florence and her co-wokers were planning on a larger outreach in December, but due to security risks, will need to remain in Mbingo and will be praying for the sick. Pray for them! 

Ethiopia:

Praise

  • The pastor was located, praise God! He told us that 25 people are confirmed to come to the training. 
  • Eskendir has been conducting follow-up lesson with a couple of dozen new believers from his home village!

Prayer

  • Continue to pray for peace in Ethiopia! Violence continues to break out in disparate regions. 
  • Pray for Eyasu, Eskinder, and the continued safety of our contacts as we plan the Eritrea training! 

USA:

Praise

  • We now have half of the money we need for the car in Nigeria! 
  • Dara’s husband Ian received really good news from his artery scan; he does not have heart disease! 

Prayer

  • Board meeting for FFICM is this week! Pray for the board as they look to this next year! Russia/Siberia:

Praise and Prayer

  • Roman is conducting follow-up in Siberia, praise God! Pray for him as he continues to minister
