(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."

Please pray for a cohort of undergraduate students to whom a Theological Education Team member will be teaching the books of Romans and Galatians during the month of February. Ask that they will actively engage during class and be willing to conform their thinking and practice to biblical standards, even if those differ from cultural norms. Pray that the students' hearts will be transformed by the Word of God and that, likewise, those whom they teach in the future will come to know the true gospel.

Cyrus lives in Europe, far from the Arab nation he calls home. Living in a place where Islam isn't a perfunctory part of life, Cyrus has begun to wonder what the truth about God really is. He has been reading the Bible and listening to different people talk about the good news, and he wants to know more. He has even found a local community of believers with whom he can pursue faith. However, he is having trouble finding housing that he can afford on his construction salary. Pray that God will provide housing for Cyrus so that he can continue to seek truth with local believers.

In December, you were asked to pray that the Lord would lead believers to people from the mountainous region of Gilgit-Baltistan who have moved to the cities. Some believers recently met a group of Gilgiti students at a local university, and they've gotten to meet with them several times and have had many good gospel conversations. Give thanks to the Lord that because of this, there have even been some inroads made into the local Gilgit community! Pray that these relationships will continue, that these students will lead the believers to more people from the Gilgit-Baltistan region, and that they will believe the gospel and take it back to their own families and communities. Pray for further inroads at another university where the believers are still trying to meet students from Gilgit-Baltistan. Ask God to provide those relationships this month.
