Tibet - Points of Connection: With our focus on reaching the Unreached Peoples Group our workers are very dependent on God to show us the way in which to connect and build relationships with the differing people groups. Please pray for Gospel Workers learning about Tibetan Buddhism to be able to find points of connection from which they can share the Gospel. (World Outreach International - December 2020)

Pray for peace in the South Caucasus region of Nagorno-Karabakh: Pray for peace in the South Caucasus region of Nagorno-Karabakh. Fresh fighting has broken out between Armenian and Azeri forces, with a ceasefire fast falling apart, and a real potential for escalation – with Russia having a defence pact with Armenia, and Turkey being allied to Azerbaijan. Please pray for peace.  For both Azeri and Armenian believers to be kept safe, to be given ‘a peace that passes understanding’, for new opportunities to share their faith, and to show acts of kindness and love, so that the ‘compassion of Christ’ shines through amidst all the darkness.

Covid-19 and Refugees: As Covid-19 continues its rampage through our world, people who are on the fringes of society continue to suffer most. In Myanmar a refugee living on the Thai side of the border was in the wrong place at the wrong time as a skirmish between two armies took place.  He was wounded badly and local clinics can only help with antibiotics, pain relief and wound dressings.  This man needs surgery but because of Covid-19 border controls are being tightly managed and the risks of transporting him to Thailand, where he could get the surgery he urgently needs, are too great.  Pray for this soul and many like him who are suffering extra because of the Pandemic.

Creative arts studio online: Last year one of WEC’s ArtsRelease teams opened a creative arts studio at a church premises in Leeds. New members joined and the artists took turns to lead each weekly session based on a passage of scripture. They held an exhibition on 2nd May, attended by local dignitaries while WEC’s Resonance Band played music. Since lockdown, the ‘studio’ has continued online, sharing their creations in various mediums. This has given birth to a similar group connecting across Southeast Asia and another in Suffolk. Pray for these artists to be inspired and encouraged, to share their faith effectively through their work. (WEC International - December 2020)
