Gary and Tina Barrow – Truckee, California

FIRST PRAISE REPORT
The only Bible College that has been able to continue to operate during this Covid pandemic is about to start another semester. It is a small handful of students this semester since we are not taking new students due to the lock downs in that country.

We have a great line up of teachers teaching through Inductive Bible Study, Genesis, Exodus, Joshua and the Gospel of John. We also have an English class along with Systematic Theology, Practical Christianity.

Please pray for this semester. Pray that the students will see Jesus and be totally transformed. Pray that they would spread the word of God’s love and Christ’s sacrifice so that country would be won for the kingdom. Please, please pray that God would bring an end to the lock downs, giving the people a break to get back to life as normal. Pray that we would be able to return to minister to the students and the other ministries next year. I long to get back there and reconnect in person with the students and staff.

SECOND PRAISE REPORT
God has been blessing Calvary Chapel Truckee and we are growing in Jesus as well as numbers. Honestly, I don’t think I have been busier, but I’m not complaining. The Lord has been doing a very special work drawing new people to our fellowship, reviving body life after being separated for so long with Covid. He is also raising up men in our fellowship to take on more of te leadership roles. Tina’s summer book study was well attended and a great blessing to the women of our church. We have also started our first life group with plans of 3-4 more next session. It’s such a blessing to just sit back and see the Lord do the things that He has been doing. It’s been such a joy to serve this church.

Please pray for strength to meet the needs of pastoring this church, as well as the wisdom and vision needed. Pray that God would continue to draw people to us that need to hear the Gospel, people who the Spirit of God has been working on. Pray that our body would grow in love, one for another, and that we would be characterized as a praying, loving, Word of God focused church.

THIRD PRAISE REPORT
Overall our family is doing very well. We’re still adjusting to a new area. The boys are working and trying to break into careers of their choosing. Please pray for open doors for them. Recently Tina and I have been sick, NOT WITH COVOD.
Please pray for healing and good health. Pray for our marriage and family in general as there are many attacks as we seek to serve the Lord faithfully and without compromise. 

We are so very thankful for your prayer support. I am sorry it has been so long since I have submitted a prayer request. It’s a measure of how busy we have been. PLease feel free to email me with your prayer requests also.

God Bless you,

SOUTH AMERICA

Kilgus Family – Trujillo, Peru

It is been quite the year, but God has been so faithful through it all. In January we were able to baptize 13 new believers who had come to faith during the pandemic and quarantine. We also started 6 small groups throughout the city in February so people could have more intimate fellowship, and a place to meet when the government locks things down.
We also started a new semester at CBI Peru with 18 full time students from the USA, Peru, and Venezuela. They are growing and being discipled. We will have our first graduating class in November, and we are praying to see where God is going to lead them into ministry.

Peru has been experiencing lockdowns again, and they have been very difficult because things change every 2 weeks. The government will announce that church can open, but then 2 weeks later declare they must close. We have been closed 4 of the last 8 weeks with the restrictions flip-flopping every two weeks. Please pray for strength and grace as we continue to move forward in the gospel.

God did provide an amazing new facility for CBI Peru. A former resort that holds up to 80 students, and we believe God is going to use it as a hub for missions and church planting. We need your prayer because we planned to move on April 1st, but Peru announced a nationwide lockdown for Easter weekend to avoid gatherings and we wont be able to move.

Also, the government raised gas taxes and all the busses, truckers and land travel agencies have gone on strike. That makes moving complicated, and also make a lot of basic resources scarce as supplies are no longer arriving.

Prayer Requests:
1. Pray for the new believers, pray for the small groups, pray for the Bible Institute students and pray for many more people to believe in Jesus and for many churches to be planted. 

2. Also, a special prayer request for my family. We hope to visit the states in June/July, but we need two passports for our children and the embassy has been closed. We need a miracle and an emergency appointment, but we have not been able to get an appointment after about 3 months of effort. Please pray as we need a miracle!

Thank you!

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.

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,

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,

Mitch and Christine Sorensen – Nice, France

Prayer Requests:
1. We are very thankful for your prayers and encouragements!! Be richly blessed for your help! As we are continuing to distribute Gospel tracts and the Gospel movie cards, one on one with people working at the cash register of different stores, in the streets (mainly the elderly to whom we give the “Good Person” tract) and also tons in mail boxes of big buildings as there are less people in the streets due to the cold weather and the very early daily curfews —–*Please pray they will look at the movie and be touched by the Holy Spirit.

2. French people are still not fond at all with anything that sounds like the Bible, Jesus or Islam. This ministry requires lots and lots of sowing, praying, perseverance, loving, patience.

3. We also are following up some believers to encourage them to grow by  discipline into spending more time personally in the Word. As the restrictions have fallen also on church meetings, many rather not come anymore but look at the services via Zoom. Some have just disappeared.  It has been difficult to do church with a mask on and all the other rules prohibiting contact. So, we have started to meet people one on one to fellowship and pray together, outside of church —*Pray we will have wisdom and be a great blessing to many. Our neighbor, same floor, has been diagnosed with colon cancer. He and his wife do not speak any French (nor English) and they are avoiding contacts with us because of the fear to get Covid. We want to encourage them and bless them. May the Lord inspire us and heal this man!

4. Pray for our health.

5. Pray for our provision

4. Over the next 6-7 months, my teaching schedule is increasing exponentially. Please pray that the Lord lengthens my study time and anoints my ability to communicate His Word effectively.  

5. Pray for our personal support. Living in the States and on missionary support is a difficult reality. We struggle with it practically as living expenses in Orange County are high. It is also a struggle to convince people that our home office staff is an absolute necessity for the success of our missionaries all over the world.

7. We also had a great response for our 2021 summer youth and young adults Israel apologetic tour. We have 35 signups! I originally booked for 15. So the Lord sent in a LOT more. Please pray for all the administration that goes into organizing a trip like this. Also, pray for no COVID issues.

Worker 14 and Family – 1040 Window

Prayer Requests
1. A cold virus hit our house hard, but thankfully not covid! Wife took it the worst as she didn’t get the sleep needed since she was caring for 2 sick boys day and night. Husband stepped up and gave her two days  to catch up on sleep and lay around with baby, so she’s doing much better now! Our little lady was the only one who didn’t get it, likely due to excessively nursing when mom rested! So thankful the virus didn’t last more than a few days and that we have thus far avoided covid, which would do much more harm!

2. We praise the Lord that our menial garden efforts are blossoming. We have some green veggies growing in pots which is a big deal as greens are hard to come by. We’ve also had great success with root veggies and hope to become more self sufficient in basic vegetable harvesting to reduce market trips. Please pray for wisdom and blessing over this small task.

3. We’ve started our neighbor visits this year and are praying for open doors (spiritually and figuratively) and Spirit led conversation as we step out in faith.

4. Pray for my wife as she seeks to build relationships among our neighborhood women and find kids for our children to build friendships with.

5. Pray for husbands relationship with the men and leaders of our community. Pray for Spiritual conversation to surface and for His Spirit to speak through me.

6. Pray for my wife’s language learning that she’ll be able to make time, find an effective way of learning, and grow in her ability to understand and speak.

7. Pray for direction as we plan out our next few months and that the Lord will open doors and provide for the visions that are from Him, and make it clear those things that are not His Will or timing. Pray we would have sensitivity to His leading so we can be effective and fruitful in the works He’s laid before us.
