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.

Mission workers return to Taiwan: Praise God that  has passed over 100 days with no locally transmitted Covid-19 cases, although there have been a few imported cases recently. Several OMF workers have been able to return to Taiwan after home assignment in recent months and have been given the all clear to start back in ministry. Also, most churches have resumed and schools plan to open as usual at the end of August, with appropriate precautions in place. (OMF International UK - October 2020)
Protection for Cambodians: With Covid gripping the world, Cambodia has been spared with low infection numbers and no deaths but the knock-on effects on the economy are truly an area of concern and prayer. Many Cambodians depend on a salary that feeds a number of family members. Factories are shut, tourism has been curbed and therefore wages have been either reduced or suspended. Please pray that Cambodians will not become victims of predators, willing to borrow money at very high rates. Pray that the industries that fuel the economy will start to reopen and Cambodians will be able to return to work. (Cambodia Action - October 2020)
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.
