SGWM Weekly Prayer Requests 08/02/17-08/08/17


Bond and Heather Gaona – Uganda– Our Current Location

Please Pray:
1. Bond is teaching Daniel, Revelation and the Work of the Holy Spirit. Aaron is teaching the book of John. We have approximately 40 students from 10 different Calvary Chapels (3 of which are in the Sudaneese Refugee camp). Pray that the Holy Spirit would reveal the truth of God’s Word to each of the pastors and leaders that are attending. Those attending from the Refugee Camp have said that they are so grateful for the opportunity to come and study God’s Word. They had only been eating once a day and it was not enough. Now they are being fed three times a day and being fed spiritually.

2. Pray for Heather as she daily meets with the Promise Children and their families. Pray for discernment, insight, wisdom and a sensitivity as she meets with, shares and prays for children each day.

3. Pray for continued health for all of us. Pray that Breanna would not get malaria.

4. Pray for those living in the Sudan Refugee Camp as there are over 200,000 people many without enough food. We have 3 churches that have been planted. Those pastors come for training during the week and go home on the weekends. Pray for the many more churches that we desire to see planted and for faithful men and women to minister in the camp.

Thank you for for praying for us!

Deanna Jevas – Tijuana, Mexico

-Our V.B.S. was fantastic last week! 5 days from 1:00-5:00 about 115 kids per day, many gave their hearts to Jesus and it was a fabulous week. Thanks for your prayers! God is good and we give him all the glory and praise.

Please Pray:
1. For my health-specifically for constant pain in my feet due to planters fasciitis and for migraines that are hitting more often. I will first attend a pain management class and then see a neurologist this month, prayerfully they will figure something out to help with these!

2. For my mom who had a biopsy done on a piece of skin on her nose, that it isn’t anything serious.

3. For a ministry that I feel led to start in reaching out to the singles in our church, that the Lord would open the doors if it is part of His plan.

4. For continued provisions for my personal needs and for the needs of this church.

Thanks for praying for us!

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.
