Prayer Requests/Answers to Prayer

November 2018 - Here are our prayer requests for this month:

1) PLEASE PRAY for five of our nursing school students who are having a very hard time with their studies. The hard reality that they are facing is that they are failing-out of some of their core courses, and unless they make some clear and measurable improvements in their abilities and grades, they will be let-go from the program. This is VERY difficult on everyone involved in the school, both students and professors (including Terry), and we are praying that it will not come to them being dismissed from the school. We have been doing extra work with these students since the beginning of the current semester, giving them additional time for studying, and working one-on-one with them in as much as they want. PLEASE PRAY for a breakthrough for each of them. PLEASE PRAY for excellent times of peer studying. PLEASE PRAY for God's help for these students as they work to recall all that they have studied and learned, as well as what they have yet to learn through the remainder of this last year of the program.

2) PLEASE CONTINUE TO PRAY for Sam and Ruth, and for others in their community that follow a major world religion. PLEASE PRAY for spiritual hunger in their hearts. PLEASE PRAY for dreams, visions, and whatever other means the Lord would use to break through into their lives. PLEASE PRAY for growing opportunities for us to speak openly about the reason for the hope that is within us.

3) PLEASE PRAY for our team of international workers here in-country. PLEASE PRAY that the Lord would work in all of us, making us more and more like Himself, and using us as a team and as individuals in this corner of the world. PLEASE PRAY that the Lord would help us live out the counsel in 1 Peter 3:8-9, namely that we would grow in being agreeable, sympathetic, loving, compassionate, and humble (this wording is from The Message). PLEASE PRAY for our upcoming Prayer Retreat time...that the Lord would lead both the speakers and our team in the way that He wants this to go. PLEASE PRAY for a new couple that has just recently joined out team...for their adjustment to a new culture, to a new home and work environment, to working in a new language, and for their two, young children as they adjust to this new life.

And these are our prayer requests for this month.  As always...THANK YOU VERY MUCH for your ongoing partnership with us in our work here in Gabon; can’t do it without you!  Blessings…
