Jenna Pepin – Culiacán, Mexico

Please Pray:
1. God is alive and very active here in Culiacan!  Last Friday, we hosted a mission team from Ensenada that put on a free concert for the city of Culiacan.  I don’t have exact numbers, but I know that many people were saved that night.  This Saturday, we had a women’s breakfast/outreach with over 70 women in attendance (only 30 from our church!).  Nearly a dozen of them received Christ after hearing my testimony and the message that followed.  At our Sunday service, several more people were saved.  Please pray for all of these new believers, and that God would continue to grow our family here at Calvary Chapel Culiacan.

2. Today, we as a church body supported one of our sisters at the funeral of her son, murdered yesterday for his association with drug cartels.  Please pray with for Chuyita and her family as they mourn this horrendous loss.  While at the funeral, we received word that Raquel, another sister in our church, lost a young cousin this morning to food poisoning, and that the girl’s mother and sister are in serious condition in the hospital for the same.

3. This week, our church is participating in a missions conference in Mazatlan, a neighboring city, and I have been asked to head our church’s missions/evangelism ministry.  Please pray for my talks with Pastor Hugo this week as we organize this new ministry, and for the conference in Mazatlan and all involved there.

Thank you and God bless you!

Miller Family – Amazon Jungle, Brazil

Please Pray:
1. Our next Indian Village trip, May 3-21, 2017.  We are going into the village we visited two years ago in which the chief and his son repented and received Christ Jesus as their Savior.  They have invited us back to do a Bible Conference.  They have invited 5 other Villages.  Many of these people have never heard the Gospel before and because we are taking our disciples from the village we work in, they will be able to hear the Gospel in their own native tongue.

2. Please pray for the people of Jardim Tropical here in the city of Manaus, where we live.  Our weekly Leadership training is going well there, along with the weekly children’s outreach.  Please pray as this is a very poor area which frequently floods and the people constantly have physical needs.  We are doing our best to provide the spiritual food, and secondarily, helping with the physical, which includes clothing, diapers, house maintenance, etc.

3. Please pray for our eldest children who have moved back to the U.S. and are treading the road of trials to become independent.  It is rougher for them as we are here in Brazil and do not have the ability to be there when they need us.  Please pray that the local Christians around them see this as an opportunity to share the love of the “real” family, as we are one in Christ.

Thank you for your prayers!

God bless you all,

 Brenten and Lena Powers – Pacific Grove, California

-Praise God for a fruitful local outreach at a festival in Pacific Grove, California in April. LETSGO team gave out a few hundreds of tracts with free watermelon slices and invitations to Lighthouse Fellowship. Three young men surrendered to Jesus.

Please Pray:
1. Please pray for Brenten as he helps chaplain launch a new outreach to military studying various languages on the presidio of Monterey starting May 5th. This bi-monthly event is called Areopagus as in Acts 17 when Paul seeks to reach  a pluralistic society with his testimony of “the unknown God”, logic and the news of Jesus and the resurrection. Pray for wisdom, love and grace as we seek to evangelize without proselytizing, encourage critical thinking about world views and relate our testimonies about Jesus to a new generation who are preparing to serve around the world.

2. Please pray for the Powers family for the next 4 weeks as we will be visiting different churches, connecting with multiple Calvary fellowships in our area. Pray for opportunities to share the vision for LETSGO so we may bless more churches and equip more believers to spread the gospel in the Monterey Bay Area where it is desperately needed.

Thank you for you prayers!

Bond, Heather and Breanna Gaona – Nepal

-Praise God for a wonderful week of hosting pastors from all over Nepal at our campus. It was great to see those who are partnered with us and also our past graduates who are also serving the Lord in various regions.

Please Pray:
1. Pray for the time with each of the Promise Child girls as we do updates for sponsors this week. Pray for clear communication and that Heather would be able to effectively minister to each of them one on one as the Lord leads.

Miller Family – Amazon Jungle, Brazil

Please Pray:
1. Augustinho, Lucilene and their son Esmael.  Esmael is in the pediatrics hospital as of today, 4/19/2017 undergoing treatment for severe pnuemonia.  He arrived there 8 days ago.  He is improving, but they are keeping him there while he is taking antibiotics.  He is 13 months old and had surgery 6 months ago to have a colostomy bag done.  He was to have the bag removed and his intestines connected again this month, but now must wait until he is better.

2. Our next village trip on May 3, 2017.  On this trip we will hold the first Apurina Bible Conference at a new village to us and their will be 5-7 other villages invited.  Many of these have not heard the Gospel clearly before and are involved in some type of idol or animistic worship/belief.  Pray specifically for our disciples who will be preaching and giving testimonies, Makao, Oscar, Valdicis, Analucia, Raimunda.

3. Please pray for our family as we have all been struggling with flu type issues for the past week.  These things came on top of the asthma reactions we had from inviting a cat into our home for 4 days to help with the mouse/rat problems.  I know, but these are real issues, we just don’t normally talk about the rats, cockroaches, mosquitos or other critters.

4. Please pray for the men of Jardim Tropical and our leadership meetings.  Also pray for the construction of the new church which has been slowed down because of lack of finances.

5. Please pray for our homeschool classes, our children, and us.  Those who do this will know what kind of prayers are needed.

Thank you for praying  with us over these things.  May the Lord bless you and keep you, making His face to shine upon you.

God be with you all as we all anxiously await His return,

Marc and Linda McSweeny – Frankfurt, Germany

Please Pray:

1. The Lord provided a house for us! We never expected it to come so soon. Within two weeks of first seeing the listing in the internet, we had already secured the financing and got the confirmation that we can buy the house. It was built in 1933 so we had to do just about everything to it. We were first able to do the renovations in December and our moving date was set for late February. We are now living just outside the city of Frankfurt and we are no longer living in the same house as the church. Please pray for the adjustment for us as a family and for the church. There is now a more distinct separation between my home life and the church. That has good and bad sides to it.

2. We will need a new location for the church soon. Since moving out, we have lost a place to have the children’s ministry. We had planned on using a room we rented in the basement for that purpose, but the owner has explicitly forbade us from using it for that purpose. We sense they are trying to force us out. Anyway, we have to be really creative with our children’s ministry, and we will need a place for them soon. Please pray for wisdom and for the Lord’s will to be done. There are many open questions like where do we go, when, how, etc.

3. I have been battling some health issues, migraines being one of them. They are progressively more severe and frequent. Lately they have been coming on Sundays and hindering me from being able to teach. Please pray for healing since it is beginning to affect my ability to do ministry.

4. Please pray for a young lady in the church who was traumatized a few years back. The trauma therapy does not seem to be working as she had hoped and her condition sometimes makes it difficult for her to come to church. She is very discouraged by her inability to lead a “normal” life. Please pray for her healing and deliverance.

Thanks for your prayers and support!

I will be sharing the gospel to our students from the youngest kinder to the oldest high schooler and then training key student group leaders to lead a group to pass tracts and share the gospel to the Filipino attendees at our Youth camp when we go Street witnessing..  Pray for divine intervention in all the prepping and arranging everything for the Mission.

4. Please pray that God will affirm, confirm, clarify what ministries are for me.    I am experiencing opposition, but needing help to discern if this is because the ministry is not for me, or because I am suppose to stand in the
gap.

Thank you for your patience, your continual prayers, and support..  Thank you for letting me serve with you. You guys are amazing and I am so blessed to be serving in the cause of Jesus Christ together!!!  Have a blessed Passion Week and Resurrection Day!!!!

Jenna Pepin – Culiacán, Mexico

-Thanks to all who prayed us through last week.  Sammy is completely over the chicken pox.  My sermon on Wednesday night was very well received and gained the praise of the pastor.  Saturday’s Breakfast Club also went very well!  The kids very actively participated in the lesson and were able to apply it to their lives.  Praise God!

Please Pray:
1. This week, we will be participating in a 4-day, 3-church camp event outside of the city.  Please pray for good weather, safety and health for all participants, and that each person ministering will be sensitive to the Holy Spirit so that effective ministry will take place and lives can be changed.  There are a lot of details to coordinate and lots of people to be ministered to, are we are trusting the results to God.

2. Pray for our Easter services, as well.  As with any church, we are expecting many newcomers and unsaved people to attend, and we want to take full advantage of this awesome opportunity.

3. Finally, please pray for the future of the Breakfast Club.  Due to the previous lack of fruit, the pastor is considering moving on to a different area, but in light of this weekend’s success, we are also discussing the possibility of increasing the ministry.  Please pray that God will guide us to the right answers, and that (if we are to increase) God would provide the necessary workers and funds to make it possible.

Thank you all for your love and prayers.  May you have a blessed Easter week!

Miller Family – Amazon Jungle, Brazil 

We thank God for His wonderful mercy and grace, and His word, which we can trust in.

Please Pray:
1. The Jardim Tropical Ministry.  Pray specifically for Artur and Merinete, Leandro and Roberta, Adailson, William and Diana, and Sergio.  Pray also for the children’s ministry, and the countless adults whom we wish to reach.

2. Please pray for Iran, a young man at Jardim Tropical who recently repented and received Christ as his Savior.  We believe he will be vital for future youth ministry there.

3. Please pray for the Apurina people.  Pray specifically for our disciples, Oscar and Analucia, Makao, Valdicir, Patricio, Davi, Armando, Guillermi, and Raimunda.  Please pray for the new villages we contacted on our trip in March.

4. Please pray for the 1st ever Apurina Bible Conference, which will be held in the village we evangelized 2 years ago, in which the Chief, Apurinari and son repented and accepted Christ.  We have invited all villages in the area to attend.  We are expecting 20 + men who are interested in the Bible, plus all others who come as spectators.  The Conference will be held the 1st week in May, 2017 on our next trip.  This village is 14 hrs by boat up river from our jungle house and village where we minister on a regular basis.

5. Please pray for Linelma, who now lives with us.  She was born on a reservation here in the Amazon, was adopted by American Missionaries and had upper schooling in the U.S.  She is back in town to start her own business of teaching English.  She helps immensely around the mission base, with our kids, and with translations for the people who pass through our house.

6. Please pray for our eldest children living in the U.S.  Jr and Ashley, who just had their first daughter.  Andrea, who is just completing a 9 month cosmetology school and is deciding to stay or return here to Brazil.

7. Please pray for Judy King, the original missionary with the Apurina people who translated the Bible into their language and we use to train and teach them.  She arrives here on Saturday, April 1st for 3 weeks.  She wishes to return to the village and reunite with the people.  She also needs to take care of “loose ends” here in town from her 35 + years of ministry.  Please pray for safe travels, and her health.

Please pray with us for these things, God bless you all,

Weekly Prayer 03/28/17-04/04/17


Paul and Jana Sandbulte – Indiana

Please Pray:
Our unborn baby has been diagnosed with a congenital diaphragmatic hernia. This means that her stomach and other organs are where her left lung should be. Her left lung is barely there, and her right lung is also smaller than normal. CDH usually causes breathing problems, eating problems and developmental delays. When the baby (Rose) is born, the doctors say she will be put immediately on a ventilator, be fed through an IV, and have surgery after a few days. They say she will probably be in the NICU at the Children’s Hospital for 2-3 months and need further monitoring and care. Please pray for complete healing in every way!

Thank you!

Please Pray:
1: Vinita now her both the knees are hurting.  She has problem in

Pradeep Kumar – India

Please cry out to the Lord for Gyatri!

Without warning, Gyatri’s father abruptly entered a Church service in India where our dear Pastor Pradeep was leading the service and made a public display and began beating Gyatri for attending the service in front of the congregation.

Gyatri, who is a passionate evangelist, remained steadfast and faithfully returned to the following service as did the rest of the congregation. Later, while she was at a Bible Study with Pastor Pradeep, and other church members, her father once again came and violently beat her and also her sister.

We are now told Gyatri’s father is making this a regular practice! Before Gyatri became a Christian, her father had never before beat her. This shows how hated Christianity is there.

We are asking for urgent and deep prayer for our dear evangelist and sister in the Lord, who is passionately serving in such an area of strong opposition and even in the face of danger and suffering.

Please Pray:
1. Gyatri’s safety and physical healing and that God would protect her life. For encouragement and blessing and comfort and strength; and that she will sense God’s Presence in an amazing way!

2. That this persecution will be turned around for good to bring even more new strong believers to be added to the church and stir a great hunger for Jesus in the area!

3. That the pastor and church members will be given exceptional wisdom in how to respond to these painful trials,and will only grow stronger and even more enthusiastic in serving Jesus, and that they will clearly see God’s hand on their church and their lives!

4. That Gyatri’s father will stop beating her, and that his heart will be softened toward Jesus Christ and that he would be come a dedicated and committed follower of Him.

Thank you so much that we can count on having you to care and pray hard for our dear sister in such a great time of need!

Much love in Jesus Name!

Deanna Jevas –  Tijuana, Mexico

Please Pray:
1. For the after school program. The lord is bringing about a lot of changes, and they are all good! Pray that all will be on board and that there will be sufficient staffing. Also, that we would continue to be led by the Holy Spirit.

2. Provisions and good time management for Nena, the pastor’s wife, who is going back to college in May to finish her education and get her teaching credentials. (education is extremely expensive in Mexico). She doesn’t know how she’s going to pay for it, but know that God is calling her to finish school!

3. For minor health issues that I am battling with. If it’s not one thing it’s another, and all of this tends to throw a wrench in my daily plans in regards to serving.

4. For Godly boldness for me in regards to authority (giving it out). And for good leadership skills (wisdom).

5. A preschool teacher on Sunday mornings, and a nursery teacher for the Wed. Night service.

“In the morning, Lord, you hear my voice; in the morning I lay my requests before you and wait expectantly.”  Psalm 5:3

Thank you for praying for me!

Please Pray:
1. We are officially installed in our new home in Culiacan.  Thank you for all of your prayers as we got moved and settled – it was quite an adventure!  Please pray that God leads us to a “real” home (something bigger than our temporary studio apartment) so that we can actually unpack and establish ourselves.

2. As we begin our ministry here, please pray that God helps us to adjust to the climate here.  The heat has only just begun, and it’s been quite an adjustment for us.

3. Also pray that we can quickly establish a weekly ministry routine.  This Saturday will be our first opportunity to go to La Invasion de la Esperanza to work with the Breakfast Club.  I will also be looking for ways to improve the church’s missions and outreach ministry and taking on some of the administrative tasks as well.

4. Pray for all of our new brothers and sisters in Christ here in Culiacan.  We had 7 baptized last week and one more accept Christ this Sunday.  The harvest is truly ripe!

Thanks!

-We need prayer for a smooth transition from 3 part time secular jobs into bivocational Missions/work through Saving Grace World Missions so that I can set apart more time for the work God has called me to and provide for my family.

Please Pray:
1. Please pray for future financial partners and churches to see the vision for equipping churches, and evangelizing locally and globally and exalting our Savior among the nations.

2. Please pray for me and Lena to have enough strength as we both are working very hard, endurance to make it through each day, week, month, year…

3. Please pray for the strategy and Spirit’s leading and confirmation for specific for outreaches, which pastors, churches and missionaries to approach locally and globally this year.

4. Please pray for God to stir hearts and fan into flame the gifts he’s given. May the Spirit of the Living God fall afresh on us all. May God use us for His glory and kingdom and the furtherance of the gospel.

Thank you for praying!

Helen Hong- Incheon, S. Korea

-Praise the Lord!  My friend that I met on the plane who shared that she has cancer with me in recent post has recently informed me that she got checked and that she is on a road of recovery from cancer and that her health check was very positive!

-I am doing well; I am 1 month into my new assignment as a Youth Teacher in Incheon, S. Korea.  I am very grateful for the Christian community around me and another opportunity to serve Him.   I continue to teach kindergarten students full-time and teach Creative Electives to Elementary to High School Level Youth in the household of faith. I covet your prayers for Spiritual Strength and protection and to be daily lead by God to be a good example and Teacher for our youth.  Please pray for creativity and inspiration as I coordinate and choreograph Creative Performing Arts Classes for upcoming Missions Trips and Productions.

-Our Evangelism Training and Discipleship Training Program will begin soon, and it seems that the Lord is revamping our program to be more authentic and discipleship based. Many of our Evangelism leaders have dropped out and I am included in one of the few who are trying to hold up this training. Please pray for God’s hand-pick trainees to join our Training and for my preparations to train our new trainees and to facilitate our existing leaders.  Pray that the Lord will have His way.

Please Pray:
1. Please pray for my Church Life; to be lead by him as I have been struggling to find a good fit.  Please pray for the Calvary’s in Korea as well.

2. Please continue to pray for my dear friends in ministry; Rosie Ha who is recovering from cancer and Mai Marquis who suffers with Sciatica.

3. Please continue to pray for me to be more pleasing to Him, strengthened in His work, His will, in prayer life and in disciplines of godliness.

Thank you so much for your prayer and support.

In Christ,
