(TOH-kyoh) - "Thank you to everyone who prayed for our team's Christmas outreaches. The Lord greatly blessed us. Many people heard the gospel and received gospel tracts. Normally, it can be very hard for us to get Japanese people to take a tract. However, when we dressed as Santa and offered the same tracts, Japanese people were much more open to taking it as a Christmas gift. On two occasions, we handed out nearly 300 tracts in an hour. And that is only counting two of our Christmas outreach events. Please pray that people will read these tracts and be inspired to ask us questions about who Jesus is and why Christmas is all about Him."email@example.com
(mah-LONG) - This month, hundreds of women will gather for a day of prayer for the Malong people. Many of these believers live among or near Malong communities, yet great fear prevents them from sharing the gospel with the Malong. Ask God to stir the women's hearts to support and join the gospel work of local community workers who live among the Malong people. Pray that God will use this gathering to call out more workers and encourage churches to get involved in His kingdom work among the Malong peoples so that all may hear the gospel and have a chance to respond.
(HOE-chee-men) - Thi and a group of believers are reading the whole Bible together this year using a daily reading plan. For most in this group, reading that much Scripture every day is a new experience. Some believers in the group have paused reading the Bible over the recent Lunar New Year holiday. Pray that they will catch up and be encouraged to keep reading. Pray for this reading group to grow and even multiply into new groups. Pray for Thi and the other believers to grow in their enthusiasm for God Word. May they not only read it, but also understand, obey, and teach it to others.http://reachingvietnam.com/ firstname.lastname@example.org
(yoh-kuh-HAH-muh) - Join us in praising God for the miraculous work He is doing in the hearts of the Japanese! Many unchurched Japanese people came to Christmas outreaches at a local church. One family has committed to coming to church in the new year. The father said he fell away from the faith of his youth. Pray for this young father as he learns to walk with the Lord and lead his family to Christ. Also, ask the Lord to bless game nights with a group of young men. As missionaries incorporate a Bible study into this time, pray that the men will respond to God's Word.
Join the Central Taiwan Team in prayer as they lead the first 1-2-3 Next Generation training in early February. This training focuses on theology, discipleship, evangelism, and church planting. It's a two-year commitment and a partnership between local churches and IMB missionaries to train up young people to lead the next generation. Pray for these new students to work diligently in the training and to give their heart and mind to growing in their walk with Jesus. Pray that these young leaders will build healthy relationships with the trainers and that God will use them to build His kingdom in Taiwan.email@example.com
