Numbers of Mongolians now talk of polytheism in Mongolian society and in the churches. This is at last being brought out after 30 years. Please PRAY. There is schism in Mongolia, a mainly Buddhist country. Some call God ‘Lord of the Universe’ using no pagan terms for Christianity. There is no Bible training available for people who reject pagan terms for the Bible. On the other side missionaries and nationals promote Bibles which use Buddhist terminology for prayer and other key terms in the Bible. They call God ‘Burhan’, which since at least the ninth century and even more so today, is the word referring to Buddha or any image of Buddha. These people have Bible training and are in the majority. So far mission agencies have not told their supporters they support Buddhist terminology. They have different Bibles with names of the books, place and people all different.
The situation in Israel and Palestine has exacerbated tensions in France which has the largest Jewish and Muslim populations in Western Europe.

Trustees and Staff are prayerfully exploring a second outreach centre in a different area of Sheffield. Many Muslim groups and Romani Slovaks live in this area. Ask the Holy Spirit to lead us in partnership with others so that we discern whether this is from the Lord. A key meeting of stakeholders is planned for January 16th.
Life for church pastors in Malawi is very challenging. The aftermath of Cyclone Freddy and the war in Ukraine has made everything so costly. Then in November the Central Bank devalued Malawi’s currency by 44%. Imagine if you had £100 in the bank today and tomorrow it is only worth £66. This squeeze affects pastors and their families badly, because their church members also feel the pinch and are less able to support their pastors. Give thanks for their faithfulness and pray that the Lord would sustain them and help them to persevere in ministry.
Socotrans people in Middle East: The indigenous people of Soqotra Island have had almost no Christian witness for generations and practise very conservative Islam.

Pray for God to increase evangelistic materials in the Bedawiya language, and may prayer teams see breakthroughs in establishing fellowships of believers.
Wollo Amhara in Ethiopia: Wallo is a province in north-eastern Ethiopia with a desire for independence. There are around 6.3 million Wollo people who are mostly traditional subsistence farmers. Most Amhara people are Christians but Wollo people practise Islam and traditional religion. Pray for improved farming methods, and for Amharic-speaking Christians to reach out to the Wollo people.
Domari in Egypt: Domari is the Arabic dialect of the Romani language. There are Domari Romani villages and communities in Egypt. Some Domari live in cities while others are nomadic. The quality of health care, nutrition, housing and education is poor, especially for those in refugee camps. Pray that Domari families and community leaders will seek the Lord's face and enjoy his blessings.
Tigre People in Eritrea: Although the 1.8 million Tigrinya people in Eritrea are mostly Orthodox or Coptic Christian, there are 743,000 Eritrean Tigres who practise a form of Folk Islam. Their beliefs include animal sacrifices and rain-making rituals. Sacrifices are offered whenever they think their sins are numerous. The Jesus Film is available in their unwritten language, but prayer is key to reaching this people group with the Gospel.

Christianity Today wrote an article on Mongolian evangelicalism, quoting Mongolians who said: “The number of Christians has plateaued and even decreased”. It shared their concerns about syncretism which “is deeply engrained in Mongolian culture […] Some see Jesus as one more god to add to the list—as long as he is useful. And if God doesn’t answer a prayer, maybe a Buddhist lama or a shaman will provide better help.” PRAY

Pray too for the strengthening and expanding of current mission work.
Pope Francis visited Mongolia 1-4 September. Apparently two leading Buddhist requested on social media the Pope be welcomed warmly, as “it is the same faith”. Much of evangelicalism uses Buddhist terms for God (Burhan - Mongolians use this to refer to Buddha), heaven (divaarjin – meaning nirvana) and much else. Buddhist confusion is understandable. Evangelicals participated in the Pope’s interfaith meeting. Other evangelicals refuse to use Buddhist terminology, seeing it as ‘blasphemous” and have their own Bible. PRAY
Bibles are very much needed in China. Despite the printing of Bibles in the country, these only reach the registered churches.

Pray that many children and their families would be holistically supported through network initiatives such as Family Strengthening and the Learning Space, so as to help reduce the risk of children falling behind and dropping out of school, limiting their future learning and employment opportunities.
A woman stall holder in Ulaanbaatar asked a customer, “Where do you work?” On hearing it was connected with the Bible she angrily said: “Jesus’ people” and asked why people did not leave Mongolians alone as they already had Buddhism. It was not Jesus, but unwise methods of evangelism which caused such offence. PRAY people will show Jesus in how they speak of him, how they relate with each other and in the message, they declare, that it will be the Bible message. (Bible Society of Mongolia).
