Muslims of the Outer Rim, East Asia

Hassan is a businessman respected for his produce, food, and devout Muslim beliefs. He has products for sale at open markets and high-end grocery stores. Declining business and lack of tourism due to COVID-19 continue to hurt his sales and add stress to him and his workers. Pray for him, his family, and his workers, that business will improve so their daily needs are met. Pray that during this time of difficulty, Hassan will realize the truth of Jesus.

Chinese in Europe

Many Chinese nationals living abroad in Ukraine left after the invasion in February, yet a remnant chose to remain in their adopted homeland. Pastor Ray felt a strong call to stay and help those who cannot help themselves. He has served food to those sheltering underground in subway stations and cared for orphans in this time of distress. Pray that the Lord will uphold and strengthen him as he learns to minister in a wartime context. Ask that God will be near to those who are scarred by the trauma, and may unbelievers watching Ray's display of gospel faithfulness be drawn to Christ.

"Dear Friends, so much has happened in the Asia-Pacific Rim with international tensions and the COVID-19 pandemic and travel restrictions. Southern Cross Bible Distribution Project is adapting to new realities. First, pray for us to have discernment to know and do God's will. Pray that our Bible Society partners can develop Bible apps and use advertising to help us connect with seekers tourists even when they are not arriving in person. Pray that we will find travel and other industry partners in North America, Europe, and Asia who will help us identify the specific locations were tourists, students and expats will visit. Pray that our Lord will open new partnerships with local diaspora Chinese churches who desire to partner with us. Pray for a good witness and goodwill at new locations. Pray for us as we relocate and learn a new city in 2022."

Japan

"People who beseech others for prayer need to always remember to pause long enough to thank faithful prayer warriors for their service. Thank you so much for praying for such a long time that the borders of Japan would open for new missionaries to come in and punch holes in the darkness! We are excited to have a bumper crop of fresh new missionaries ready to take on the culture and language and to witness in such a way that many might come to Christ. This is the most rapid influx of new missionaries in the shortest window of time in the past generation. In mid-April, Japan raised its daily cap on overseas arrivals to around 10,000 as the country gradually relaxes its coronavirus border controls. This helps to respond to the growing need for entry of returning Japanese nationals and foreign visitors, especially addressing the desires of students who wish to study in Japan. Unfortunately, this border opening still does not apply to foreign tourists, and we need your ongoing prayers that volunteers who desire to serve in Japan can soon get in. Ask God to grant missionaries favor as they introduce themselves to their neighbors and forge new relationships."
