Missionaries’ Prayer Requests

September—October 2020

David and Mimi Reeves, currently stateside, Nantes, France: Praise the Lord for moving in their friend, Stephanie’s heart! Ask God to continue drawing her to Himself and opening her heart to the Gospel. Praise God for 5 year-old Louis who is beginning his journey toward salvation; pray that he will also come to salvation in Christ!  Pray that David and Mimi will be able to return to the field in France at the end of this year or the beginning of 2021. Pray that they will be fully funded by that time.

Rusty and Brenda Carney, Kamifukuoka Church, Japan: Praise God for allowing them to be able to fill in for the Baileys as they are stateside assignment for the next year! Pray that God will bless their time with these people and will truly make the church a light that cannot be hidden in the community! Pray for Mr. O who accepted Christ back in February, but because of Covid and work issues, Rusty has not heard from since July. Pray that he will respond to Rusty’s messages and feel welcome to return to church. Pray for Mr. A who does not yet believe in Christ, but is interested in the Bible—that Rusty’s study of Abraham will be fruitful in helping him understand and accept the Gospel into his life. Pray for (another) Mr. O who came to church because of curiosity sparked from an AA class—that he will continue to ask questions and be open to understanding the Gospel and would receive Christ in to his life and decide to follow him.

Pray for Josh and  Bethany Simmons who are following God’s call to join the work in Spain at the Diaz 42 Outreach Center ministering to refugees from Morocco and Algeria. Ask God to move on the hearts of people to help them meet their need for funding very soon (50% by the end of September and 75% by the end of November).

Josh and Lydia Provow, New Life Shumen, Shumen, Bulgaria: Praise God for their new ministry tool the “gift version” of the Gospel of Luke. Pray that many hearts will  be opened to accepting Christ as a result of this special introduction testament to Jesus as they are shared with unbelievers in all four ministry regions in Bulgaria—Shumen, Pleven, Svishtov, and Varna.  Pray for the Provow children as they go back to school for safety, friendship, and health.
