“For God speaks time and again, but a person may not notice it. In a dream, a vision in the night, when deep sleep falls on people as they slumber on their beds.” (Job 33:14-15, HCSB)

Hi, this is Eleanor Witcher of IMB’s prayer office, praying with you for those on the verge of spiritual decisions.

The believers who make up the Red*, Card* and Purple* teams in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam, have been frequently amazed as they share the Gospel. With each day, God is showing them His hand at work as they meet people who want to learn more. One believer said, “There’s something pretty amazing when I begin to share the Gospel with someone and they get a bit of a confused look on their face. I know that it’s because they have never heard this before, and God has given me the blessing of being the first to tell them!”

A Kurdish woman of Central Asia, Saheeb*, is struggling in her search for Truth, but she continues to process and question. Her husband, Mustafa*, has also shown interest, commenting that he sees true love in the way her believing friends love her despite the language barrier.

After several weeks of free English as a Second Language (ESL) classes in the suburbs of Paris, one woman has shown strong interest in studying God’s Word. On a recent Saturday, around a table with coffee and tea and while children played in the background, this mother and two Muslim-background believers had a holy experience in Bible study. A man from the Middle East has also been coming to the ESL classes but does not yet grasp his own spiritual condition. A man from North Africa had recently been praying for his friend Bobby* to have dreams and visions of Jesus after a long spiritual conversation. God has answered his prayer.

* Please pray that God will use this dream to soften Bobby’s heart so that he will be open to Scripture and will come to salvation through Jesus.

* Praise the Lord for stirring the hearts of Saheeb and Mustafa and pray for their salvation.

* Pray for consistent follow-up of new believers in Vietnam with obedience-based discipleship that will result in new, multiplying churches.
