Weekly Prayer 04/04/17-04/11/17

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,

Brad and Melissa Miller, Josiah, Veronica, Benjamin, and now Linelma – ~ Email:  millerstobrazil@yahoo.com  Blog: https://millerstobrazil.com/





Bond, Heather and Breanna Gaona – Serving in Asia and Africa

Prayer Requests From Nepal:
1. Pray for our student missions trip with-in Nepal where we take the students off site for several days of outreach. The dates are April 9 – 11 and we will be doing the outreach where Milan is pastoring (5 hours from the city). Pray that as our students practice and prepare skits, dances, dramas, testimonies and children’s programs that they would be used mightily and stretched.

4. Pray for our health. We (Bond and Heather) have been having stomach issues off and on over the past two weeks.
