Comfort asks for prayer for security in Borno state and that the Christians are given the strength in the Spirit to stand firm in the midst of severe persecution. The Boko Haram attacked on Saturday and were repelled, but not before about fifty people died. Please pray for an end to the violence! The women in the refugee camps are continuing to convert Islam, despite the efforts of the local church to provide support. They are not getting the aid that they need! Please pray for them.
Comfort’s daughter is finishing her final project for school!
The Nigeria office car is now malfunctioning! Pray for Peter for strength and encouragement as he deals with it, and that the Lord would prevent the enemy from attacking the ministry at all!
The office van is working very well, and now has both seatbelts and AC, which we praise God for in the danger and heat of Nigeria!
Praise God for peace in Jos this past week.
Continue to pray for the details to come together for the conferences in the fall!
Pray for the retreat for FFICM trained evangelists and church leaders, as they pray and ask God to grant them renewal and wisdom to know how he is leading them to minister in this time of great trial! Florence asks that we pray for some of the evangelists who because of unforeseen circumstances will not be able to attend, that they will not be discouraged. Pray for God to encounter each one of us accordingly. Pray for grace to fast and pray through the retreat fervently!
Please continue to pray for Florence’s husband, as he lost his younger brother this past week!
Please pray for improved communications with our Ethiopian team!
Please also pray for the country–a major general was assassinated in an apparent coup attempt this past week, and numerous officials killed in the north. May God grant them peace!
Please pray for the continued set up for the training of the students in July! That everything (especially now security) would fall into place.
Pray for Rich and David as they are catching up on all of the new information they have from Nigeria and the US the past few weeks and will be developing further strategies and budgets.
Pray for David as he travels this week to a church with his family, he will be speaking twice, and has his wife’s birthday celebration, parents’ anniversary, sisters’ anniversary, and other birthdays to be present for! May God bless each family member.
Thank the Lord for interested volunteers resulting from David’s last speaking engagement at Laurel Community Church!
Continue to pray for Stacey’s brother, who is waiting for test results still–pray for peace and for news of healing!
Pray for Dara and Susanna as they support a close friend who is struggling in her marriage.
