Please pray for the believers who have been mentored and discipled, asking that they will be faithful in their walk with the Lord. Pray that they will be obedient and share their faith and also teach others to do the same. Only by obedience can they see fruit and growth. Without the sharing and planting of seeds, there will be no harvest.

Shia of the Desert

Fatima enjoys meeting up with her believing colleague, Laura. They always seem to get into some interesting and deep conversations. She has always loved reading stories of the prophets, and when Laura asked if she'd like to read the Bible, Fatima was eager to do so. Now they read together almost every time they meet. Recently, as these women began to read the words of God, Fatima seemed really convicted of her sin but just could not accept the idea that Jesus had paid for her sin with His life. She left Laura's house with the idea/hope that "if I can remember that there is punishment for sin, then maybe I'll be able to stop sinning." There are many other Shia of the desert like Fatima. Please pray that they will see the futility of this mindset and accept the grace that Jesus Christ offers. "For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God, not a result of works, so that no one may boast" (Ephesians 2:8-9 ESV).

(dhoon-DHAR) - Please pray for the 1.6 million people living in the Sawai Madhopur (pronounced suh-WAH-ee MAH-duh-poor) district situated in northwestern India. There are few known believers in this area; however, there is some church-planting activity. Approximately 87% of the population is Hindu, 12% is Muslim, and 0.07% is Christian. Ask the Lord of the harvest to send out more laborers into the harvest fields (Luke 10:2), and ask Him to empower and guide His servants to families who are ready to hear and believe. Pray for many Hindus and Muslims to hear and understand the gospel, believe, and be baptized this year. Pray for the formation of healthy churches in all 818 villages of Sawai Madhopur to the glory of God!

Walid came to faith a while back, and once he met with other believers, he naturally became the leader. He prioritizes meeting and genuinely cares for all who attend. The past couple of years, he has grown in his leadership, teaching ability, and administrative skills. Give thanks to God for the growth in Walid's life! Walid is continuing to shepherd his flock and meet with others who are open to the truth. Pray for wisdom and guidance as he leads the local church. Ask for protection over him from the evil one as he does the Lord's work. Also, Walid is single but would love to have a family. Pray that the Lord will bring a woman of God into his life for him to marry or else give him contentment in singleness.
