Bruce serves as our Member Care Director and as an Instructor at various Pastor’s Conferences. Continue to pray for his support needed for his personal needs and travel to Texas, Liberia, Nicaragua, Kenya and elsewhere.

June 9 – Pray for Dean as he works with our Financial Manager in setting up and improving the books at our office in Kenya.
June 10 – Pray for our drilling team in Kenya as they work on the water well at the Sijoa Primary School Busai District. There are many areas that water well drilling teams do not travel to, due to the distance and difficulties of travel. This is one of them.

June 20 – Pray for Melaku Abebe as he purchases medical equipment and supplies for our clinic in Meki, Ethiopia so that we might obtain the needed license to get this clinic opened and operating.
June 21 – Pray for two teams headed to Nicaragua:
Pray for Merle Admire and the team of 6 that he is taking to Nicaragua and for a fruitful time of harvest as they share the gospel of God’s grace with the lost. Dean will also be going with two pastors to teach at the Pastor’s Conference in Masaya. Merle also hopes to get one or two water wells drilled.
June 22 – Pray that God will allow the right Pastors to attend the Pastors Conference taught by Michael Bannon and Andy Robinson and Dean. Pray that God will use these men to strengthen the faith of these church leaders in Nicaragua.
June 23 – Pray for Merle Admire and his co-leader, Mike Brooks, as they lead their team in Nicaragua and look into the drilling of a well in two locations. They will also be holding meetings to share their testimony and the gospel with these communities.
June 24 – Pray for great clarity in sharing the gospel. It’s not our good things that get us into heaven but our bad things we do that can keep us out. That is why it is not by our works but by grace through faith in Christ alone.
June 25 – Pray for the last day of the Pastor’s Conference and for the community of San Benito. We hope to have drilled a well in this community before leaving Nicaragua.
June 26 – Pray for the churches where Andy, Michael, and Dean will preach and that many will be challenged in their faith. Pray for Merle and Mike Brooks, too, who will be preaching at other churches in Nicaragua.
June 27 and 28 – Pray for the return of our two groups from Nicaragua back to the USA. Pray for safety and a good time of reflecting on all that God has done in and through us.
And pray for Robert and Ann Messier’s team as they leave for the Matagalpa, Nicaragua area to continue their ministry to needy kids and evangelism. Their son, Jacob, is going with them, as well as a dear friend, Pam Palmer, from Payson, Arizona.
June 29 – Pray for many opportunities for each of us to share our faith in Christ. (Col. 4:3)
June 30 – Pray that each of us would take to heart the first recorded words of Jesus to his disciples, “Come after me and I will make you fishers of men.” (Matt. 4:19) If we are not fishing for men, are we really coming after Christ?
