Prayer Requests/Answers to Prayer


Dear Partners in Prayer,

This is to my Father’s glory, that you bear much fruit, showing yourselves to be my disciples. John 15:8

Please pray with us for the following:

1. On May 5-6, there will be a Marriage Retreat for couples of all the Alliance churches of Asuncion, Paraguay. The retreat is filled up with a waitin list, PRAISE God! Please PRAY for the two couples who come from New Jersey to minister during this retreat, as well as the workers and each couple who will be participating. We expect great things from God!

2. In the San Lorenzo Alliance Church where we are ministering, there will be two special meetings:

--On May 7 the men will be meeting and building each other up in the Lord.
-- On May 19 the ladies have a special Ladies’ Tea to celebrate Mother’s Day. This is a bigger event than the other meetings, so please cover in in PRAYer as new ladies are invited. The theme of the Tea is “Reflecting Jesus in our Lives” and the speaker is Joy Brougher.

Please PRAY for these gatherings of the body of Christ.

3. On May 12 there is an Evangelism Explosion workshop for the Alliance churches in Asuncion. Please PRAY for a good attendance and for the future ministries of evangelism in the churches.

4. On Sunday, May 13, Joy will be speaking at the Nemby Alliance Church. PRAY for her message to speak to everyone, even though it’s geared for mothers in celebrating Mother’s Day.

5. The San Lorenzo Alliance Church has three new cell groups that are meeting. Please PRAY for Blas, Ana, and Angel & Claudia as they host once a week meeting and these groups. The focus is to invite unsaved family and friends to a home environment, but it is as well for church members. Thank you for PRAYing for these cell group meetings as well as two more planned to start this month.

6. The new Alliance Bible institute of Paraguay called IMAP, which translated stands for Alliance Ministerial Institute of Paraguay, has finished its first trimester, PRAISE God! The next trimester (12 weeks) begins May 19. Please PRAY for the former and new students who will be studying in Asuncion and Ciudad del Este.

7. We are asking for prayer for more international workers for Paraguay! PleasePRAY to the Lord of the harvest to send forth the laborers to Paraguay. Please pass on the following information to anyone who senses God’s call to serve Him outside of the U.S. so that person can prayerfully consider these needs of Paraguay!
