Prayer Requests:

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!

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!!!

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!

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.

Struska Family – Rosarito, Mexico

Praise God:
 -For the teams that have overcome the difficulties of the Coronavirus quarantine and overcame any fears of traveling and doing ministry here in Mexico in 2020. 

Payer Requests:
1. Spring is one of our busiest times of year. Please pray for our spring teams as they plan their upcoming trips while dealing with the obstacles of any Coronavirus or quarantine issues. Pray that the Lord will move the hearts of pastors and church leaders to allow those who are called and those who are willing, to be able to come and serve. 

2. We continue to seek the Lord’s wisdom in knowing how to move forward in ministry with our teams during this time of quarantine and social distancing. So far we have given out a lot of food bags and cleaning products, while doing less up close ministry. We request your prayers that we would be able to continue with ministry while doing our part to help ensure the health and safety of both those who come to serve, as well as those we are ministering to. 

3. We ask for prayer for the 3rd floor kitchen/dining hall project here at Connections House. We have relied almost solely on donations for this project and have seen a drop in donations this year, which correlates with the drop in ministry – also Coronavirus related. Pray with us that the Lord will provide the funds and materials to get this building operational by March 2021. This will allow us to add more beds and host larger teams, as well as multiple teams at a time. 

4. Ron had back surgery 14 months ago, which unfortunately has resulted in very little pain relief. This has been very limiting work-wise. Ron just had an MRI and has a doctor’s appointment on November 20th to look over the results and find out what the next steps may be. Please pray for wisdom for the doctors and that there will be an effective solution. 

Thank you so much for your prayers!

Prayer Requests:
1. Please pray for Lighthouse events, a university outreach that a few students in our church started this summer. Pray for wisdom and vision as they seek God on how to continue in the school year and how to engage with their peers and friends about meaningful subjects, mainly the good news of salvation through faith in Jesus! 

2. Personally, I also need prayer for wisdom and clarity. I pray that I may grow in the knowledge of Him and delight in Him even as I wait on Him regarding decisions about the future. 

Thank you for taking time to pray and seek God in behalf of His kingdom work in Hungary!

Prayer Requests:
1. I hope you can pray for an Iranian friend who has severe health difficulties. He can’t move enough due to a work injurie which resulted in his absence from the Bible study and fellowship with us. I am worry also for his mental state because of this long isolation. May God can help in creating ways to contact him more or even heal him completely.

2. I am trying to connect a German family with a Syrian single mom, who has some disablement but still has to take care of her kid. I hope you could pray that this connection works and be helpful for her in practical way. She has some trust issues and fear of connecting to Christians because of her religion.

3. I hope you can pray for me to find new ministry opportunities. Since the beginning of Covid-19 I feel I am doing very little and every new thing I try ends up not working out. The restrictions are making everything complicated add to people fear of social contact. I am glad we still have Church service and Bible study groups but other things are very limited. I hope with your prayers that God would give me patience or lead me to more involvement where I feel I am using most of my time in His service.All blessings.

Thank you very much for praying for me.

NORTH AMERICA

Prayer Requests:
1. Please pray for our family during this crazy season. School has started back up and the beginning of the year is always chaotic for Erin and the kids as they develop a new routine. 

2. I have restructured the leadership within SGWM and have created three distinct departments – Missionary Sending (US based missionaries that we have sent), International Relations (10/40 Window church planting/nationals), and the Missionary Training (School of Missions and Internship). Pray as we transition and continue to grow. 

3. Please pray for the youth ministry I lead. Our group is growing and the teens are doing well. Please pray for all of our leaders that the Lord would anoint them. 

4. It has been on my heart for a number of years, but due to lack of time, I haven’t been able to accomplish the goal of writing yet. But with the new restructuring of SGWM and nearing the end of my M.Div program, I am blessed with more time. Pray that the Lord increases my talents and provides a few editors. 

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.

6. We had a great response for our youth Mexico trip in November. We completely filled up the trip. So I’ll be leading a group of 30 youth and young adults to Mexico in November. Please pray for this trip.

Brian and Jill Kanyike –  Kampala, Uganda

Life and ministry seem to be moving slowly as Uganda is mostly still under lock down and curfew.

Prayer Requests:
1. Please pray for everyone to stay healthy. Luke was very sick and then Liana a week later. Both went to ER screaming in pain on their stomachs but the Dr. found nothing.  Though Luke had swollen lymph nodes in his tummy. The Dr.  thinks maybe it was a virus. Both are OK now.   Now Luke and Laylee have rashes which the Dr. also thinks is a virus. I don’t know where they could be getting these things since they don’t go anywhere.

2. Pray for safety as crime and violence has been on the rise. Lately many riots and protests. The other day they were very close. It sounded and felt like a war as the riot police used water canons and such to disperse crowds. The booms literally were shaking our windows. 

3. Homeschooling has been a little challenging. Being together 24/7 for months has made patience for everyone a little hard. Pray for patience and grace for everyone with everyone.

4. Pray for the church as people are suffering. We are helping best we can with the money we normally would use for tea after Sunday service.

5. Uganda is repatriating people who were stuck outside Uganda. Many of them are testing positive upon arrival. Pray that this does not lead to a massive outbreak.

6. For 2 years now Uganda has not had a proper dry season.  The lake is higher then ever recorded and many people have lost their homes and lives.  Even now when it normally should be dry it is pouring down heavily everyday.  Pray for a time of dryness and for people who are affected to be safe and provided for.

Thank you for praying for our family and for Uganda.

-Secondly, I want to praise the Lord with you that God is allowing us to buy our first home. We have never had a home of our own.
