Pankaj and Tonielle Sarkar – Kathmandu, Nepal

Some of you already heard that before we came to the States on furlough, in April, Tonielle’s business visa (aka – long term visa) was denied. The only reason it was denied was because we had “christian activity” happening on campus. The doors are slowly closing for religious freedom, but at this point, Nepal is still a country where you are free to practice any religion – basically, it is not even legal that they are denying the visa.

We are working with our lawyer to try to get the visa reinstated, but it is taking a very long time and costing a lot of money that we have not budgeted for. At this point, the government is saying they need to do an “in-depth investigation” into the business.

Tonielle and Levi are currently able to stay in the country with a tourist visa but are only allowed to remain on a tourist visa for up to 5 months per year. They have already been in-country for a little over 2 months, which means, if the business visa is not granted soon, we only have about 2.5 months until we will have to find another way to remain in Nepal.

We know and trust that God is in control and we am grateful that this is the only form of persecution that we have to deal with right now, but we would still like to ask for you to be praying for this process. If for some reason the visa is denied, we are trying to think of other ideas on how we can stay in the country but – obviously – it would be awesome if this can just resolve and the original visa will be reissued.

Thank you for your prayers! Feel free to share this with other believers and prayer chains as well, but please do not post on social media.

In Him,
Pankaj, Tonielle and Levi – Email: sarkar@sgwm.com Blog: http://sgwm.com/sarkar/

2. or a teacher for the after school program for the little ones.

3. For a teacher for the 9-11 year old class on Wed. nights

4. For much needed WISDOM from God to oversee the children’s ministry and after school program.

5. For Calvary Chapel Pedregales, that God would do a fresh new work here and use Pastor Federico tremendously.

6. The Lord’s protection for all of the kids that attend our church and the after school program who live in a very dangerous neighborhood.

God bless you and thanks for praying for me and the children in Mexico.

Jenna Pepin  – Culiacán, Mexico

Praise and Thank You!
-Thank you to everyone who prayed for our mission trip to Mazatlan. “Despertar Mazatlan” was a HUGE success – over 800 people were treated by our doctors and medical personnel and around 3,000 people were saved! Our youth and women’s events here in Culiacan also went well, and my toe seems to be almost back to normal. PRAISE GOD for answered prayers!!!

Please Pray:
1. Please pray for the outreach event and clothing distribution we will be having this Saturday in La Invasion. We are hoping many new people will come out and make contact with us so we ca begin to grow that ministry.

2. Also, pray for the new contacts I made personally in Mazatlan. If God wills, we will be having a “Despertar Culiacan” in the not-too-distant future (maybe next year?) as well as a partnership with YWAM to embark on a city-wide Bible distribution project.

3. On a personal note, continue to pray for my finances and the decisions I will be making. You can also pray for two friends of mine, April and Sandra, who each have a daughter missing – one was kidnapped and the other has apparently disappeared into the drug scene.

4. As always, thank you for your prayers! As James 5:16 tells us, “The effective, fervent prayer of a righteous man avails much”… and we have MUCH need here in Culiacan!

Thank you!  May God continue to bless you as you cover us with your prayers.

4. And finally, please pray for my finances and some important financial decisions that I will be making in the next 2-3 weeks.
