NAMB Prayer Requests
Please pray for my family as we will probably have to evacuate our house because of fires in the Pacific Northwest, especially the fires in the Clackamas, Ore., area. Also, please pray for our church this new season as we start a new series of online messages about discipleship. Pray for courage, creativity and relevance as we endeavor to reach the next generations of Romanian-Americans with the gospel.
Our Upstate ethnic people group team is planning a “Four Fields” training for our ethnic pastors. It will be three hours one Saturday a month in September, October, November and December. The training will include evangelism and discipleship with the aim of making disciple makers who will begin multiplying disciple making groups among our ethnic neighbors here in the Upstate of South Carolina. We will have a mentor for each attendee for the training who will stay in contact with the trainee throughout the training. The end vision is to see a multiplying movement of disciple makers and disciple-making groups in the Upstate region of South Carolina continuing to the ends of the earth. Please pray for the success of the training and, more importantly, for the implementation of what was learned so the end vision will be fulfilled for the Lord’s glory and His kingdom alone.
We want to give praise to God and thanks to those throughout the Send Network who prayed for an indoor facility for our church for the winter. God has graciously provided it in the form of a coffee shop in our town. We began gathering for worship Sunday afternoons September 13. An extra measure of grace is that the owners of this shop are believers. Please pray for us as we make plans for doing ministry together in Windsor!
I am experiencing pain in my left index finger. I may need surgery. Please pray for healing; I do not want surgery.
Please pray for Ashley’s heart as we’ve had issues figuring out what’s going on with it. She has a procedure this week. We are unsure if she will need a pacemaker or ablation therapy.
Please pray as new team members are joining us in the next four to six weeks. Pray their their home buying process goes smoothly and that they will have opportunities to love on their new neighbors. Pray we will have opportunities to care for the Russian immigrants in our county and that we can share the gospel with them. Pray that God would bring persons of peace who can be the start of new micro-churches within that part of our county. Pray for our five kids as they all do distance learning. Having the first year of school in a new city be online is not a great way to make new friends. Pray that we can creatively help them develop friendships.
I am asking for prayer for the city of Portland. My hope is that we as the church will stand with the oppressed and help the helpless. Portland is hurting, and Jesus is the answer to the pain. Also, please be praying for the salvation of my parents and three brothers. None of them follow Jesus yet.
