Asian Pacific Rim Peoples
Students in Malaysia

Kevin is a college student who regularly attends a student fellowship. He enjoys being with other students and seems to be somewhat receptive to the good news. But when given the opportunity to share his thoughts about God, he expresses doubt that God cares or has the ability to help him. Students are very kind to Kevin, and patient too. Would you please pray for God to radically transform Kevin's heart?

Central Asian Peoples
Soviet Peoples in Istanbul, Turkey

It's been said that among the Turkmen, one out of eight family members resides outside of Turkmenistan. Many of the Turkmen come to Istanbul for work so they can send money back to their families. While most migrants are men from the former Soviet Union, it's the women who're coming from Turkmenistan. Dozens of times each year, believers hear stories of Turkmen women leaving their children, even newborns, to come to work. When the women come to faith, they tell their families in their home country, but they still don't return to live with them. Often, the husband will also come to work, which leaves the children either alone to care for themselves or with begrudging family members who demand money to inadequately care for the children. Pray that the Turkmen wives in Istanbul who have come to faith will want to return to their families. Ask that the love of money, a stronghold for many Central Asians, will be rejected as the believer grows in her faith. Pray for the Turkmen children who feel abandoned. May their parents' choices not cause them to hate their Heavenly Father. Pray for believers in the church to give godly counsel to the believing Turkmen women.

Northern Iraqi Arabs of Iraq

Many displaced people live among other people groups in a sprawling neighborhood of hundreds of houses, but they aren't welcome. On the walls, graffiti says, "Get out!" Pray for these people who need help. Pray for ways to assist them, such as meeting their physical needs by giving food. Pray for ways to meet their emotional needs. Pray that among them are "people of peace" (Luke 10:6) who are open and waiting to hear the good news of Jesus and believe.

North African and Middle Eastern Peoples
Northern African and Middle Eastern Unengaged Peoples

The Tornasi Kelo people reside in eastern Sudan near the Ethiopian border. While they live in Sudan, they can travel freely back and forth across the border. This small population of 4,700 people speak the Berta language, which is also spoken by other ethnicities on both sides of the border. Praise the Lord that God's Word has been translated into the Berta language! There are also Berta gospel recordings available. Who is calling out to God for this small population? It is indeed a privilege to intercede for the Tornasi Kelo people. There are near-culture believers in Ethiopia. Pray for Tornasi Kelo men who travel into Ethiopia to meet believers and be able to communicate with them. Pray for Tornasi Kelo men to receive the written or audio Scripture in their language and to take this good news back to their villages and families. Pray for the salvation of the Tornasi Kelo population.

Hong Kong and Macau, China

(ma-COW) - As I sat beside Amy, a young college student who does not know Jesus, during the Easter worship service, I felt so compelled to ask the Lord to remove the scales from her eyes and help her understand the preaching of God's Word. After the service finished, she turned and said that it was the first time she had understood clearly and was able to follow the preaching. Praise God for His power to reveal truth to the lost. Pray that Amy and other young students like her will understand the gospel and put their faith in Jesus as Savior and Lord.

Please pray for the many MKs (missionary kids) who are now college students and are attending school in the United States far away from their families. As summer approaches, many of them are looking for the best way to spend those summer months. Pray that God will open doors for them and help them to continue to live in the U.S. or return to their families overseas.
