Pray for volunteers who will be coming to Tanzania in February. They will be teaching the Bachelor of Theology students at Tanzania Baptist Theological Seminary in Arusha and sharing the gospel message in the community. Ask God to give them extra strength and perseverance as they prepare to teach. Lift them up as they gather all the necessary documents and visas needed to enter the country. Pray for the logistics of their visit. Ask God to make their visit beneficial to them and to the students. Pray for the students as they learn under this guest professor and others. Began interceding now for those who will hear the gospel message presented during their visit. Ask God to prepare their hearts to receive Christ and to begin their new life of following Him. Pray for follow-up and discipleship efforts with those who commit their lives to Christ.
(BAH-soo-too) - Lesotho is a country that is home to the Basotho people, who are deeply steeped in their traditions and culture. Please intercede for the believers in Lesotho, asking that the culture of Jesus will transcend all other traditions. While there are aspects of their culture that can be honored and valued, may they be unfettered from any cultural traditions that inhibit their worship or obedience to Jesus. Ask God to bless the Basotho believers with bold faith and the courage to step into their primary and true identity as Christ followers, and pray that they will influence their culture and community with the hope they have in Him. "For freedom Christ has set us free; stand firm therefore, and do not submit again to a yoke of slavery" (Galatians 5:1 ESV).email@example.com
(NEE-ah-may) - "Our Niamey Urban Team is growing in exciting ways! We have welcomed a new partner from Taiwan. She began to study a local language in December. Please pray for encouragement for her. Pray that she will have ears to hear this new language and have words to share with people she meets."
(li-LONG-way) - "God has been overwhelmingly gracious to our Malawi Team over the past year. By His grace and through your continued prayers, we have been able to complete the writing and translation of a 'Healthy Church' training, a 'Biblical Families' training, and a 'Missionary Task' training. We have also been able to hold a few of these trainings in different areas all over the country. Every time we hold one of these trainings, we're asked when and where we can do the next training! Additionally, we were recently asked by the Baptist Convention of Malawi leadership to train their three home missionaries in the 'Missionary Task.' This is an enormous privilege, and we are so thankful that the Lord has chosen to use us here in Malawi. With all of this work that the Lord has opened up here, we are in desperate need of more missionaries to help. Please join us in praying for others to respond to the call to serve in Malawi, training and equipping the church to be about God's mission to reach the nations for His glory."firstname.lastname@example.org
(WAH-soo-loo) - The work among the Wassulu has prayerfully, patiently, and persistently grown over almost a quarter of a century. Countless gospel seeds have been planted individually, in small groups, and, in more open times, during larger gatherings while showing carefully selected videos like the "JESUS" film. Additionally, building personal relationships, sometimes through carefully selected community projects such as mosquito net distributions and well drilling for fresh water, have brought about growing relationships within some Wassulu communities that once were totally closed to a Christian sharing the gospel in their villages. As Mali's stability continues to decline rapidly, truly only the Lord knows what 2023 will hold for the work among the Wassulu. Join the team today in praying as they prepare to pursue plans for the year's work under God's leadership while holding those goals and objectives loosely as well, for they know, as Proverbs 16:9 (ESV) states, that "the heart of man plans his way, but the LORD establishes his steps."email@example.com
