EUROPE

Mitch and Christine Sorensen – Nice, France

Prayer Requests:
1. To be healthy, focused on what the Lord has for us and mainly for the power of the Holy Spirit to convict people deeply of their sins, so they will understand their urgent need of Jesus the Savior. Pray above all for all the elderly people we meet in the streets who receive Gospel tracts. Also for our neighbor Valeri from Romania who has terminal cancer. For his wife Maria.

2. For Eve, whom I met in September in the north of France who is very very busy with work, who just lost her mentor (an African Medium) and was showing interest in knowing Jesus.  I believe there must be a strong spiritual battle in her life after all these years of occult practice.  Pray that she will read the Bible I sent her so she can meet her Savior.

Thank you for ALL your fervent prayers towards France!!!

God bless you,

NORTH AMERICA

Mike and Erin Thiemann – California, USA

Last month, a prayer request for my son Malachi caused confusion and a bit of drama. The prayer request was a cliff note version of a prayer request we have been sharing since December 2019. On Christmas 2019, Malachi suffered a traumatic brain injury (TBI) and was hospitalized in the Pediatric ICU for a few days. As a result of the TBI, he lost his sense of smell, which is a common side effect. The prayer request asked for continued prayer for recovery and praised the Lord for his sense of smell returning. Well, because of COVID-19 and the symptom of loss of smell, many took this to mean that Malachi had COVID and some were upset that we did not quarantine him. So a praise report about recovering from a TBI turned into a COVID conflict. I apologize for the confusion. Nonetheless, please continue to pray for Malachi’s continued recovery and that there would be no “side-effects” due to the TBI. 

Prayer Requests:
1. Please pray for the SGWM office as we gear up for a packed summer of missions and ministry. Also, pray for our accounting department. They need some full-time and part-time qualified volunteers.  

2. Please pray for our new Administrative Assistant, Maribel, who will be directly assisting me and replacing Hope Douglass after having her baby. Please pray for her training and that the Lord would bless her with the ability to fully grasp everything we do. 

3. Pray that God would continue to provide and guide my family through life and ministry. 

4. Pray for me as I work towards earning my master’s degree. Pray that the Lord would bring about supporters and scholarships. Pray that the Lord would bless my study time and make it fruitful. 

5. Pray for the youth ministry I lead. Pray that the Lord would pour out his Spirit and awaken the affections of our teens towards Him. Pray for our upcoming Israel tour this summer. 

6. Pray for our continued financial support as Erin and I have been Stateside missionaries for over 15 years. 

Thank you for all your love, prayer and encouragement through this.

We are blessed by you. 

God bless you,

4. Pray for our missionaries who had many of their plans and vision seemingly dismantled by COVID last year, that the Lord would lead them perfectly into what He has had planned for them from before the foundations of the world.

Gary and Tina Barrow – Truckee, California

God is so good.

Praise Report:
-God is blessing Calvary Chapel Truckee with just a sweet time of fellowship and communion.

Prayer Requests:
1. Calvary Chapel Truckee has been meeting in our little space, as social distant as possible. Unfortunately, when this place was rented, before Tina and I came, they didn’t know that there is a building code for assembly purposes. This particular space was not built to that code. We have been trying to find another place to rent for the past 2-3 months. The problem is that there are not a lot of places built to lease that would allow for assemblies.

2. We are also near the close of escrow on a property that we have sole. It will allow us to buy a small piece of property in town and build a church there. Ideally we would be in our own place around Christmas 2022, should the Lord tarry.

– Would you please pray that God would provide a place for us to meet. A place that would allow for growth.

– Please pray for the sell of our property, that is would close with no further delays. For a good deal on the price of the property we are looking at buying and for the church building we are looking to build. Pray that God’s hand would be on all of it and it all would glorify the Lord.

– We are in need of a youth leader. Please pray and ask the Lord to bring us a youth leader who is gifted in working with the youth, someone who would reach out to the youth of Truckee and has a heart for missions.

-Please pray that God would bring youth and young families to the church. People we can serve, fellowship with and those who want and need to hear the Word. Pray that God would build His church in Truckee.

– Please pray for our family and our marriage. Pray that we would be wise to the schemes of the enemy and be quick to run to the Lord.

3. Finally, the colleges in SA look like they will take another semester off due to Covid. It seems like it has been so long since the lock down and classes have ceased. Please pray for an end of the pandemic and that the colleges will be able to begin class again. Pray that when the boarders open again, that I (Gary) would be able to return to strengthen and encourage the students and workers. Tim and I had a rip planned right as the boarders closed. My heart is to return as soon as possible.

As always, thank you for your prayer. Please plan on visiting us when you can. We’d love to show you around and have you meet your brothers and sisters in Truckee.

God bless,
