         In the midst of difficulties and disappointments may God give each of us grateful hearts.



 

PRAYER REQUESTS

         Would you pray for the Kingdom to continue to advance?  Would you ask the Lord to grow our faith and hope in Him, even as it means that trials of various kinds will likely be the means of that grace?”

 

        

    • HB, the young woman who is actively sharing her faith and led her mother and grandmother to the Lord, has moved to a town about an hour from here to do a refresher course for nursing assistants.  Pray that she will find fellowship with other Christians and continue to share her faith.
    • Recently we heard from our friends in a neighboring country who are working with BA, the young believer whose father tried to kill him several times because of his faith.  10 months ago when BA was questioned before his family, clan leaders and the sultan, his cousin, SF, was there and heard BA’s testimony.   Just a few weeks ago SF contacted BA to talk more and has given his life to Christ!  This is a huge encouragement to BA who has been mostly rejected by his family.  Pray for God’s blessing on BA’s upcoming marriage early next year.
    • Our team has 2 training sessions for Christians who want to share the Gospel with others on July 25-27 and August 8-10.  Pray for clarity as we share and that the Christians will share the Gospel with boldness.


     

    new fulbe bible

    May 5th, 2018, there was a large gathering of Fulbe believers to celebrate the dedication of the Arabic-script Fulfulde Bible, which has finally been printed and is ready for distribution.  It was a time of great celebration and joy! Hearing the testimonies of those who have suffered greatly for their faith but are still standing strong was a tremendous encouragement for those who are weaker in their faith.   


    -Pray that this version of the Bible will encourage the believers and lead many other Fulbe to Christ. 

    -Pray that as these brothers and sisters in Christ return home they will have the vision and encouragement to press on and reach their people with the Gospel
