Prayer Requests/Answers to Prayer


Dear faithful praying friends,

I urge you, first of all, to pray for all people. Ask God to help them; intercede on their behalf, and give thanks for them.” 1 Timothy 1:1

Please praise God and pray with us for the following:

1. PRAISE God! The National Church Men’s Retreat on July 21-22 in Asuncion was truly blessed by God! There were 35 in attendance and many lives were transformed.

2. We PRAISE God and thank you for praying for us as we were on vacation in July visiting our family in Ohio, California and British Columbia, Canada. Great and wonderful memories were made!

3. In the San Lorenzo Alliance Church, there will be a Ladies Tea on Saturday, August 29, with the theme, “Freedom in Christ.” The speaker will be Evelyn de Baez, who will also lead worship for the event. More ladies come out to these teas, so please PRAY the ladies invite their friends and loved ones who need Jesus. Each monthly ladies meeting, we have seen new ladies attend.

4. The Paraguay National Church will host a conference August 20-23 with the topic of Leadership in the 21st Century with Jose Carcamo from Chile. PRAY for an effective ministry for Jose and good attendance.

5. The Alliance Ministerial Institute of Paraguay (IMAP) begins its third trimester (12 weeks) on August 25. Please PRAY for good enrollment, for the teachers and that the students would be faithful in attendance and learning. This trimester Bob teaches an Intro to Church History class and Luis Felipa teaches a Christian Ethics course.

6. Please begin praying now for the National Women’s Retreat on October 13-14. Joy and Olga Felipa are coordinators for this retreat and there is a committee of eight praying for and organizing this retreat. Thank you for PRAYing for the committee in the early stages of planning.

7. A request we shared with you before is for the Alliance pastor from Venezuela that lost his wife to cancer a few months ago. Pastor Jesus Antonio (Chucho) is waiting for two months now for an appointment for himself (the ones made are always cancelled), as he desperately needs to know a diagnosis for his prostate problem, possibly cancer. Please PRAY he can get an appointment quickly that will be fulfilled.
