Here are this week’s articles:
Richelle Wright tells the story of her daughter Mary having her mind blown by how big our God is while she was learning to read from His word. Pray for the Wrights as they spread the message of God’s word in Niger.
Keith Shumaker of Macedonian World Baptist Missions shares a story which provides a vivid picture of how God works in and uses us. Pray for the Shumakers as they minister in Burkina Faso.
Joel and Andi McMartin relate the work of God in their lives and ministry over the past year, focusing on the growth of their relationships with their neighbors. Pray for the McMartins as they serve the Lord in Senegal.
Jenilee Goodwin shares a list of 40 things that are proof a missionary is preparing to return to their sending country. While much of her list is humorous, it also is a true picture of the challenges missionaries face as a furlough approaches. Pray for the Goodwins as they prepare for their return to the United States.
Deborah Berruti, an occupational therapist working in a village-based SIM hospital in Galmi, Niger, tells the story of S. who is unable to walk normally. Pray for Deborah’s ministry among the suffering in Niger.
