Malong of the Philippines

(mah-LONG) - A training farm near many Malong communities is a place of fruitfulness that has impacted lives for generations but has had limited water because of its dependence on a spring. Malong community workers offered to come and drill a well to help this vital partner of theirs. However, the conditions of the soil were not right for drilling, and they faced multiple roadblocks. They persevered in hard physical labor and prayer for weeks and were not seeing success, but God had a special ending for this journey. This past month, the water began flowing! The team of men give praise to God because He has shown them that nothing was impossible with His help. Pray for the men in Malong villages that desire to come to this farm to receive training in agriculture and Bible. Pray they will also be encouraged and will enjoy the answered prayer of flowing water.

Asian Pacific Rim Unengaged Peoples

Laos officially recognizes over 47 ethnicities in the country, and of those are 149 sub-groups speaking at least 80 different languages. Many of these groups are unengaged with the gospel. One of them, the Cali of Laos, also called the Lao Theung (Upland), is part of the Mon-Khmer people. They are animists, believing that animals, plants, and inanimate objects all possess a spiritual essence. Gospel materials are available to them, but they remain unreached with the gospel. Will you pray for this people group to have opportunities to hear of the God who created the world and who placed eternity in their hearts? Ask God to open their eyes to the beauty all around them. Pray they will seek the Creator rather than worship the creation. Pray for them to recognize their hunger for more than the world can ever offer and to discover that their hearts' desires can be satisfied in Christ alone.

People of Pearl Island, Southeast Asia

"Pray for several volunteer teams that are heading our way this April to August. These teams do crucial work for our ministry. Pray that they will have great opportunities to share the gospel and that they will stay healthy while they're traveling. Also, we would love prayer for more teams to join us in ministry. We need to return to our pre-Covid-19 numbers in order to keep our business open, and we aren't there yet."

Osaka, Japan

(OH-sah-kah) - Thank you for your prayers for the new church plant. Foundation classes for membership are still ongoing. Evangelistic activities include children's English classes with a Bible time, English café for adults, one on one friendship evangelism, and seasonal outreaches. For Valentine's Day, the church held a special service with a skit entitled, "Guard Your Heart" and a sermon centered around John 3:16 and other verses about God's love. Please pray for more visitors to come to the church, and continue to pray that Japanese will come to know Christ, follow Him in baptism and be discipled by church members.

Mongolian Peoples of Outer Mongolia and Russia

(mon-GOHL-yun) - In a country where about a third of the population depends on livestock for a living, this winter's blizzard conditions have been disastrous. The end of March and all of April is birthing season in Mongolia, but this year in many counties, there will be very few births. In an aimag (state) in the eastern region of Mongolia, all 12 counties experienced weather that killed up to half of the livestock, including most of the pregnant animals. It is predicted that up to 70% will die before summer, and there will be very few births. The herdsmen are living in hopelessness. Please ask the God of all hope to be merciful and provide for the physical needs of these people. Pray that He will use churches and Christian organizations who are providing aid to open the doors for hope to be shared and, most importantly, that many will come to saving faith.
