Please Pray

I have written before about my step mother and how she has answered the call to fly across the world to be with her daughter and other missionaries as they begin teaching about Jesus to a tribe who HAS NEVER HEARD the gospel before! To read my previous post click here.

The time is now and the teachings begin tomorrow! (Sunday, November 2nd here in the States) If you would take even just one minute and ask God to open the hearts of the Madak people and that He would empower and speak through the missionaries there in Kaveng. It would be eternally appreciated.

Chris Bittner & Karl Greeb will be doing the teaching. Please cover both of them in prayer. They are feeling a bit like Moses at this point (when God told him to go before the Pharoah and tell him to let God's people go.) Please ask God to fill them with the right words and empower them to do this. Please be in prayer for the entire team of missionaries.

Here is a short note from Beth (my step mom):

"These people have been in spiritual darkness for centuries. The forces of evil are not happy about the Truth soon to be taught. Thanks in advance for praying for tomorrow’s meeting. Thanks in advance for asking God to continue to keep a hedge around the missionaries up here. Thanks in advance for praying that the light of the Gospel, the Truth of the Word of God, will enlighten these dear people who live in constant fear. "

Thank you all for praying. I will keep you updated.
Many Blessings!!
