Please pray that the Lord will send a new Media/ Radio Trainer to assist with the many opportunities for Christian media ministry in the Asia Pacific region. We continue to develop and expand online training but there is a need for more face-to-face contact with groups in countries such as Indonesia and Thailand. Pray the Lord will call the right people to this work.
Give thanks for Ivo*, a Lifewords Pavement Project trainer in Indonesia, who provided in-person training and certification to three workers from a partner organisation. In a city considered the most closed city in Indonesia for the gospel, where there are only two Christian churches, and where the children themselves are at risk of certain persecution, Ivo said that “the expectation of the children being blessed by Pavement Project is great.”
Members of the Aldor* Bible storying team in Southeast Asia have had to flee violence in their home areas. Pray for continued connection to teammates so they can keep going with their work. Pray that the team can focus amid the political crisis in the country where Aldor is spoken, and that God would give them grace and wisdom to manage their stress. *name changed for security reasons
CMS mission partners I and S are based in Southeast Asia, where they lead an international congregation, teach English classes and come alongside people to preach, teach, disciple and help lead them into a transforming encounter with Jesus. Pray for both I and S to get to know students outside of class, for God to show each of them who to come alongside and invest in.
Pray for nine-year-old Herman* who asked Pavement Project Benjamin worked if Jesus could calm the storm in his heart. Give thanks for the healing and restoration that took place in that conversation. Pray for Herman that he would continue to be friends with Jesus, and for Benjamin as he takes God’s compassion and love to children in Indonesia. *name changed.
Gunar Sahari, Lifewords Indonesia Director, says: “Covid numbers are rising again in Indonesia, and the number of street children in Jakarta and other cities has increased. Many children could not go to school because of financial difficulties at home, or because they couldn’t join online classes.” Please pray for young people in Indonesia, that they would be protected and cared for, and that they would be able to go to school. Pray for children who are living on the streets that they would be helped to return home or find a place of safety.
Concerns are being raised after a revised criminal code was passed in Indonesia, which includes strict laws against blasphemy. This could make it more difficult for Christians to meet in public and share their faith with others. Pray that Christians would be free to practise their faith and serve the Lord according to His Word.
