Praise God, for He is at work and bringing in harvest. Pray for enough harvesters with good language skills to help the new brothers and sisters grow.
“Moona” has been working with foreigners for a number of years that have shared the Good News with her. Pray that she and her large extended family will accept the Truth.
Foreign workers are paid and treated differently according to their country of origin. It is a type of 'apartheid by passport'. Some workers are paid very low wages for hard physical work in difficult conditions. Some of them are exploited and at times seem to be treated as 'slaves'.
“Ahmed” responded on a test to a question as to why the call to prayer, with pitches and ornamentation, is not considered music. He gave the typical comment that Islam teaches that the call to prayer is too spiritual to be called "music". Then he added, "whereas Christianity worships with their music, which in my opinion is a lot more fun." Pray that the attraction of music in worship will draw Ahmed and others to learn about the love of Christ and to believe in Him.
People are frustrated with the unrest and disorder in their country. Sporadic electricity and diesel shortages complicate their lives. They need hope that the future will be better. Pray that they will hear that God offers them hope for eternity.
“Rafiqa” is a local woman who is nearing the age beyond the normal age for marriage. She has been exposed to the Good News and is very open to friendship with a couple with whom there is trust and mutual appreciation. Please pray for this couple to have many opportunities to share truth with her. Ask the Lord to give her an openness to know more, an understanding of His great love for her, and the desire for a saving relationship with Him.
