S.S. – Europe

Please Pray:
1. I have been trying to reach out to a religious minority that comes originally from Northern Iraq  and escaped as refugees to Germany for the last two years. they have certain unique beliefs that are different from anything I know. So far I tried many things but nothing really worked. Lately a new team is formed and we are trying to start a weekly Bible study with them. Please if you could pray for guidance and wisdom to know how to do the study and also for the unity of the team.

2. I am trying to contact a Christian hospital that is located in an area with Turkish-Arabic population (mainly refugees) in order to provide medical assistance in Arabic. I hope you can pray for the hospital management that they will accept the application and that if this is an open door from God to share the gospel that He will provide all the necessary papers and takes care of all the details.

3. I hope you can pray for me personally. For the last few months most of the people that I was friend with left. I serve many people and  most of my time is for them  by but I can’t share with them my struggles because they are Muslims and will not understand. I need friends that I can be opened to who can share with me some parts of my faith. I feel isolated and under many demands. I hope that you can pray that God sends me some ministry partners who I can pray with.  And thank you very much

-Praise God for His faithfulness in my family and ministry.

-Praise God for keeping me and my family safe through all the persecutions. Even though no one is standing with us, He always stands with us in every situation.

-Praise God, we still have not had the meeting at the police station, and the meeting keeps getting delayed.

-Praise God that my mother is getting better! She was sick for two months.

Please Pray:
1. Please continue to pray for our safety.

2. Please continue to pray for the registration of my church. Last week, I met with Pastor K. who was in jail one and a half months, along with his wife and wife’s sister. He advised me to register my church because he had no registration of his. That is why it was not easy for him to get out of jail. I need 20,000 in our money for the registration fees and there needs to be 50,000 in our money in the account. The total I need is 70,000 in our money for the registration. Please keep this in your prayers.

3. Please continue to pray for my uncle- that God will change his mind and cause him to cancel the police case.

4. Please pray for my neighbors. They are throwing stones on the roof while we are sleeping on the roof (due to the heat). The local pastors are advising us to file a police case on the neighbor, but we do not want to do this because my family is praying that God will change their minds. Please pray that they will accept Jesus as their Savior.

5. Please pray for the believers in my churches to stand in persecution and to be strong in the faith.

6. Please continue to pray for my marriage. I am going to be marrying an orphan girl. Especially, please pray for the finance. The total cost will be 250,000 in our money. More than 1000 people will come to my marriage ceremony. This will be the first Christian marriage in my area, so all the believers and relatives are excited to see it.

7. Please pray for two young boys named Rahul and Raja. I have encouraged them to go to Bible College. They want to go, but their parents are not allowing them to go because their parents are not believers.

8. Please pray for my nephew’s son. He is suffering from Encephalitis and was admitted in the ICU.

Thank you for your prayers, support and love in Christ.

God bless you!
