prayer requests

Ramadan began the evening of Wednesday, May 16 and ends Thursday, June 14.  There is a prayer guide available for purchase at https://www.30daysprayer.com/ .

Please pray for those of us on the ground and for other SIM missionaries yet to come that God will prepare the hearts of those with whom we can share the Water of Life.

Randy and I will be in Israel May 21-June 4.  This is to follow the recommendation for post-cancer follow-up checkups.  Results from this checkup will be sent to the hospital in Indiana where we plan to have the next checkup in about 6 months.  Our friends Ed and Dana Dickinson in Haifa have invited us to stay with them.  We depart from the and travel to Tel Aviv, and then by train to Haifa, where the medical appointments will be.  We hope to catch up with Israeli friends we met while in Israel for Ed and Dana’s wedding in 2012.  Our friend G received her Israel visa this week, thanks for praying!  She will travel the same time as we do for her own program.

Thank you for praying for our trip in April.  We sensed God’s help and presence as we traveled there and back and during Leadership Team meetings and many connections with friends.  We would appreciate your prayers again June 7-9 when we again travel for SIM Advisory Council meetings June 8.

Randy’s continued exploration of discipleship opportunities.  Pray the Lord will lead him to people who have a desire to be discipled and to be trained in how to disciple.

Please continue to pray for 15-year-old Christian LS, who continues to be held by terrorists in the northeast.

Plans are moving ahead for the first Primary Teacher Training workshops, Aug. 20-22 and 23-25.  We hope these will be pilot workshops for more to come in other northern states! More about this in our next update.
