Prayer Requests/Answers to Prayer


Dear Faithful Praying Friends:

He who calls you is faithful; he will surely do it. 1 Thessalonians 5:24

This Prayer Bulletin is for the months of June and July of 2019:

1.We (Bob and Joy) left Paraguay on May 15 and are settling into our home in Cleveland, Ohio. THANK YOU for praying for us as we said many goodbyes and had a safe trip back to the US. We have a one-year home assignment of visiting C&MA churches in western Pennsylvania, Ohio, the Spanish East district, and churches in Tulsa, OK and Ottumwa, IA. We will keep you posted on our visits and times sharing the work in Paraguay with many people. (We are still considered International Workers supported by the Alliance until July of 2020.)

2. Our week at the Alliance COUNCIL 2019 gathering in Orlando, Florida, on May 28–June 2 was a great blessing for both of us. The all-time highlight was the final day of Council when 62 new workers were commissioned, prayed for and will be sent out in the next few months to the regions beyond. Many are in countries where Christianity is greatly restricted. PLEASE PRAY for the 62 people following God’s call to reach the unreached.

3. The Alliance ministry institute in Paraguay (called IMAP) for current and future leaders in the Alliance churches of Paraguay has begun a new semester. Please PRAY for both students and professors, for dedication to the courses and application to ministries.

4. Please PRAY for Luis and Olga Felipa as Luis is the new field leader and Olga and he will be involved in leadership development. Also PRAY for Noe Hernandez as he takes over the bookkeeping aspect of the Mission and for both Noe and Keila as they minister in the San Antonio Alliance Church.

5. June 15-24, Luis and Olga Felipa will be traveling to Venezuela to specifically minister to the pastors and their families of the Venezuelan Alliance churches. Please PRAY as we all know the situation there is fragile. PRAY for safety and much blessing to result from this trip.

6. PRAY for the seven Alliance churches in Paraguay who are going through the College of Prayer course, that those attending will be faithful in applying and practicing what they are learning.

7. The Asuncion Alliance Church, closed for a few years, will be reopened in September with Pastor Segundo Llanos and his wife, Patricia, sent from the Alliance Churches in Peru. Please PRAY for a smooth process in the endeavor.

8. Luis and Olga will be attending the Mbokajaty Alliance Church in July and August to assess how the church is doing. They will work with Pastor Tranquilino and the leaders of the church to help in the evaluation of ministries and plan new ones as well. Thank you for PRAYing for this whole process.

9. Our Paraguay team asks that we and you PRAY for revival in the Paraguayan Alliance churches, all seven of them!

10. FAMILY NEWS: There will be 16 people of Joy’s Warden “clan” who will be traveling to Cuba June 28 to July 8 for a trip down memory lane, most of them not having been back to Cuba since 1961! They will be visiting where some of them were born, the site of the orphanage their parents served as missionaries, the beach, and ending in a celebration of Joy’s sister, Gaileen Warden, retiring from her ministries in Cuba to return to Canada. Please PRAY for safety, enriching times as family, and special times with our Cuban brothers and sisters. Thank you!


We will continue sending our PRAYER BULLETINS until July of 2020 as we desire your continued prayer support of the work in Paraguay. We will keep you updated on what’s happening, so you can keep on praying!
