Weekly Prayer 03/07/17-03/14/17

 

Jenna Pepin – Culiacán, Mexico

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!

Praise the Lord for all of the new ministry opportunities He is giving me!
-I will be going on a short term mission’s trip with CCSG in the end of April to do ministry amongst Muslims!
-I will begin teaching the book of Ephesians to a small group of Jr High girls!

Please Pray:
1. Please pray for the short term mission’s trip in April:
-that the Lord would continually provide financially
-that He would prepare the hearts of those He will bring in our path
-that He would raise up laborers for the trip!

2. Please pray for me as I begin to study the book of Ephesians for the Jr High girls study: for sensitivity to the Holy Spirit & for the girls’ hearts to be ready to listen to His Word! This is my first time teaching through a book of the Bible & I am beyond excited!

3. Pray that the Lord would give me His wisdom as I face various everyday situations

Thank you for partnering with me in prayer!

Blessings,

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.
