Wassulu of Mali, Guinea, and Cote d’Ivoire

(WAH-soo-loo) - During the fall pastoral and evangelism training for which you prayed, it was a tremendous blessing for five of the Malian workers among the Wassulu to meet with one another and the stateside workers, one of whom was also teaching during the workshop. The geopolitical climate, as well as the impact of COVID-19 on travel and gatherings, had hindered the gathering of these Christian leaders for two years, so being together was a huge encouragement and blessing. Please pray again for those working among the Wassulu and the conference leaders as they plan the next training session later this month or perhaps next month, if necessary. Pray that each one involved, whether a leader or a participant, will have wisdom and discernment as preparations are made and the participants study.

Theological Education in Kenya

"The time between Christmas through New Year's Day always provides a break in theological education, as our students are pastors and church leaders who serve local congregations and have many celebratory events scheduled during that time. As a result, February is when we 'hit the ground running,' so to speak. Please pray for the students and teachers who will be getting back into the routine of learning. Pray for those who will be studying the Basics of Discipleship and Eschatology in February. Ask for a teachable spirit to prevail to the glory of God. Also pray for the details to fall into place for those in two potential sites who have asked for the programs to be delivered in their areas. Pray that our Theological Education Team will act wisely in scheduling so that we don't commit ourselves beyond our ability. Finally, please continue to ask God to call out new team members to join us in this great task."

Durban, South Africa

(DER-bun) - Recently, missionary Gregg Fort was at a local gym in Durban, talking to some of the trainers. Afterwards, as he walked away, one of them, Ntate, followed him and said, "You mentioned something about God. How does a man find God?" Gregg then met with Ntate over two weeks, explaining the gospel and answering questions. After that initial conversation and several subsequent ones, Ntate prayed to receive Christ. Gregg was to discover that just a few days before accepting Christ, Ntate had been under spiritual attack and was being encouraged to contemplate suicide. Gregg asks: "Please join our team in praying for Ntate to continue to walk faithfully with Christ as we meet for discipleship. Pray for him to complete his personal trainer's course and get stable employment. Lift up his sister, as well, as she completes high school this year. They are orphaned and have no family. Praise God for finding Ntate and not leaving him as an orphan! 'I will not leave you as orphans; I will come to you' (John 14:18 ESV). Pray that his sister will also come to know Christ."

Peoples of Madagascar

"Join us in a week of prayer for Madagascar! Pray: Day 1) for the Lee family, who abide in Christ and live in Tana. Day 2) for the Phillips family, who ask "that we can stay on track with our homeschooling and that God will continue to provide opportunities for our children to have relationships." Day 3) for young leaders in Tana who could preach the Word and reach the world (2 Timothy 2:2). Day 4) for the Baker family in Toliara "to faithfully serve the Malagasy church, and for growth in faith and relationships for our children." Day 5) for missionary Ancil Ragoonath and the Malagasy team serving the Antemoro with him in preparing their 2023 goals. As the team leads the work while Ancil is in the United States, pray for wisdom and forbearance for them. And praise God: Day 6) for Malagasy leaders with special visions for their nation: pastoral care, biblical counseling, expository preaching trainings and resources, and seminary education opportunities; pray for God's fulfillment of these plans through His people. Day 7) for new believers and long-standing work among the Sihanaka, Antefasy, and Antesaka. Pray for Malagasy and expatriate harvest laborers serving these groups, and for open hearts and changed lives!"
