Mongolian Peoples of Outer Mongolia and Russia

(mon-GOHL-yun) - Approximately 101,000 of Mongolia's 3.3 million people are 65 years of age or older, and most of them follow the deceptive beliefs of Buddhism and Shamanism. But recently in a small town, several elderly people came to saving faith in Christ, including a man who is blind, and they are eager to learn more and grow in their newfound faith! "Respect for the Elderly Day" will be celebrated in Mongolia on October 1, with medals being presented for lifelong accomplishments. Pray that Christians' hearts will be burdened to share the gospel with their elderly relatives and friends on this day so that these dear ones can know the most important treasure, Jesus.

(HAHK-uh) - Pray for missionary Glennda Cook, who will be returning from the United States on October 1 to work with the Hakka people in Taiwan. Pray that churches will be encouraged to reach out to the lost Hakka in their communities as well as their own lost family members. Pray for hearts and minds to be opened to the truth of Christ, for light to shine in the darkness, and for Hakka families to be united in Christ.

(soo-MAH-trah) - Thank you for praying for Jay, a young man whom other villagers think is possessed and whose family keeps him locked in a small room. The same group of believers have been able to travel to that village and visit him a few more times. He has been open to receiving prayer in the name of Jesus, and his heart is slowly opening to being prayed for in Jesus' name. These believers have also had the opportunity recently to share the good news with Jay's parents. Please pray for Jay's parents. They feel that God has been unjust in their lives. Ask the Lord to open their eyes to their sin and pave a way for repentance. These believers have been well received by the head of this village and are welcome to come back as often as they would like. Working in a rural village is much easier if one has the good graces of the village leadership, so praise God for this!

Hakka People of East Asia

(HAHK-uh) - "As the COVID-19 Omicron variant continues to spread in Taiwan, outreach efforts among the Hakka population continue to be affected. Weekly visits to Hakka homes, especially among the elderly, is limited. Hakka gatherings for worship, Bible study, and outreach are also reduced. Pray for Taiwan's Baptist churches to join in this effort to reach the Hakka in their communities. Pray for increased efforts to develop relationships, minister to Hakka communities, and personally share the gospel, bringing the light of Christ to those in spiritual darkness."

A year ago, you were asked to pray for Nelle, who works at a large medical company. She was raised in a Christian family and passionately served God while in college, but her relationship with Him fell into the background when she was faced with the success and busy schedule that her first job brought. Thought successful in the world's eyes, about a year ago, she realized that it was time to come back to God even if that meant not quite fitting in with her friends and co-workers' lifestyles. She began a weekly Bible study with a couple of missionaries while, at that time, having many doubts. As she continued to study, her relationship with God gradually became stronger again. But her life changed drastically with a move to a new job in another city, and she is now struggling to stay physically, emotionally, and spiritually healthy. Please pray that God will provide Nelle with the strength that she needs. Also pray that she will listen to the drawing of the Spirit and begin spending time with God regularly as well as seeking out believers in her area for corporate worship and fellowship.
