Here are my latest ministry and family prayer needs.
- Pray for the ongoing translation and editing of current episodes into Spanish, French, Korean, and Portuguese languages. Pray for the translators and recording artists as they do their work.
- Pray for Yaksan and his family. Yaksan lives in Pakistan and he is the main video editor for the Global Classroom.
Brent and Kim will be going to the Philippines in March for the 40th anniversary celebrations of the church I pastored and the group of churches we worked with called Faith Evangelical Church of the Philippines. Several of our kids and their families will be going too! It will be a family reunion. We are looking forward to seeing old friends, eating Filipino food, and catching up on what God has been doing since we left the Philippines in 2011.
- Danya and Daniel just had their first baby, Sora Leona. She and mommy are doing really well.
- Pray for Kim as she serves as LifeGroups Coordinator at Good Shepherd Church in Charlotte.
- Pray for Drew and Jordyn, and kids Amelie and Mathis.
- Pray for Dawson and Leah, and son Rowan.
- Pray for Devri and Jay, and sons Jakobe and Zayden.
- Pray for Brent's mom who is settling into an independent living apartment after Dad died.
Brent is teaching three classes this summer. One is a global missions course to 42 Ghanaian pastors taught once a week live online. Another is a global missions course taught once a month to students around the US. The third is a directed study to a student living in Norway. I have a lot of grading to do, but love teaching so much. Pray for the students to do well and learn much.
Pray for the new president of OMS, Jeff Edwards.
Pray for the ministries still going in the Philippines: Faith Fellowship church, pastored by Eniong Hilario; Faith Bible College, led by President Ermalee Hidalgo; Faith Evangelical Churches of the Philippines, led by President Mar Ocampo; and Every Community for Christ church planting teams led by National Director Let Malaluan.
