Prayer Team Bulletin
As one of our guiding principles, our reliance on prayer informs how we carry out our mission of church planting. We invite you as friends and supporters of the mission to join us in prayer for these topics:
Pray for students in Taiwan as they have a special guest coming in the first week of November who will train them in studying and teaching the Bible. The students are looking forward to it. The training was supposed to take place in October, but our missionaries and at least one of the students had Covid. Pray that everyone would be healthy and able to attend and that much would be learned and used to further God’s kingdom.
Our team in Taiwan is preparing for M's baptism in the second week of November, to be held in a public park. M will have four family members as well as quite a few friends present. She is excited to share her testimony with them. Please pray that M speaks clearly. Pray for the nonbelievers there, that God would soften their hearts to hear about how great He is. Please pray for good weather and the logistics of bringing supplies (chairs, a 'baptismal', etc.).
Three of the young folks in Taiwan have started a podcast about their experiences as Christians. They are hoping it will be helpful for non-Christians to hear and answer some of their questions. We are so grateful for their initiative and desire to see others come to faith in Jesus, especially using a medium that young people are very receptive to. Pray that many would listen and be drawn to Christianity.
The first full week of November will be World Team US's candidate assessment school, RACE. Pray for each candidate and assessor as they go through this week to discover how the candidates will fit with World Team's ministries. Pray for guidance, clarity, patience, and understanding during a stressful but rewarding time
The World Team US Center will hold a three-day planning and training session during the second week of November. This event will be for those planning to serve in one of the US’s three new expansions- Belgium, Paraguay, or Jordan. Praise God that we have workers ready to open up these new fields. Pray that their time of training, team building, and prayer would be fruitful and God-honoring.
Pray for our South Asia and Chad expansions to continue to move forward. Praise God for encouraging vision trips, and pray that we would be able to get people on the ground soon.
Pray for an appointee couple who are so close to raising all of their support. They hope to depart for Brazil in January. Pray that the last little bit will come in by Christmas!
High School Dorm in Cambodia
Pray for our national WT partner and team member, Sina, as she stepped into the role of Plas Prai (the high school dorm) manager in October! She will do a fantastic job! Please pray for this transition. Sina came to Christ through the church plant in Cambodia, was very active in children’s ministry during high school, and just finished a year with YWAM in Africa.
Grade 12 students in the Plas Prai dorms in Cambodia are finishing their final exams over the next couple of weeks. They would appreciate your prayers.
Pray for our follow-up of the new believers (over 20 family members of Plas Prai students) who have come to faith over this last year.
It may seem a long way off, but now is the time to start thinking about short-term trips in the summer. Pray that God would lay it on the hearts of just the right people to participate in trips to the Philippines, Spain, Cambodia, Europe (multi-city), and with refugees in the US.
Praise God for all that he has given us. Praise him that we get to be a little part of his great plan for humanity. Pray that we will continue to be faithful to him as he is to us.
World Team Foundation
World Team USA recently announced the formation of the World Team Foundation, a new initiative and key part of World Team’s strategic plan. We recognize that new models of financing global missions are needed to ensure that the great work of building new church communities across the world continues. Pray that this initiative would enable World Team to raise finances where there are gaps and enable workers from around the globe to participate in the Great Commission.
