As you read the opportunities in this publication, you may well be asking yourself, “Will it be worth it?” But let’s ask the question from another angle. Let’s start with the cross of Christ and ask of that, what is that worth?

Latest prayer points

Mongolia
Families in Mongolia: Many families in Mongolia are broken. Due to lack of education and opportunities and even alcoholism, widespread in Mongolia, many children grow up in families unable to care for them properly. There is a real opportunity in Mongolia to reach families by offering life skills training. Ministry teams meet with families who are in need of help and teach vital skills to improve family life and the environment in which children are growing up. Through this practical help, teams are also able to introduce families with no exposure to Christianity to Biblical values and ultimately the Gospel itself.

Japan
Churches in Japan: Most churches are relatively small and there can be a tendency for members to view evangelism, discipling, pastoral support, and other essential roles as the responsibilities of the pastor or leadership team. Older pastors especially feel obliged to perform most of these roles themselves, but if a role is assigned, they may not always be assigned based on an individual’s gifts. Please pray for leaders to have wisdom and servant-heartedness; for the younger generation to step forward; for the wisdom of one generation of leaders to be passed down to the next; for church members to recognise and make use of their gifts and for church leaders to support and encourage their members in this. (Japan Christian Link - October 2020)
Myanmar
Peace for Myanmar: Pray for resolution to the world’s longest running civil conflict. Decades long ethnic tensions continue to run high, especially among the majority Burmese army and minority peoples. Pray for peace and justice in this significant year of national elections. Pray for the growth of God’s kingdom throughout this land of Pagodas. (Logos Ministries International (LMI) - October 2020)
Brazil
Peace in Brazil: Brazil has abundant wealth, yet more than 16 million people live in conditions considered ‘extreme poverty’ – pray for these people. Brazil is also the country of the ‘jeitinho’: finding a way around things. In some cases this can reveal a sinful mentality which says it is fine to trample on others to get what you want and has led to an ethical crisis. Please pray against this and for Latin Link Brazil to grow as a sending and receiving team. (Latin Link - October 2020)
