Monthly Prayer Requests

Brian and Jill Kanyike – Kampala, Uganda

The Kanyikes are getting closer to being allowed to come to the USA for the kids to receive citizenship. They have an interview soon in Uganda to get travel visas. Once the children have that they need to send it to a USCIS office in the States where they should immediately be assigned an interview date. Please pray that all goes well each step of the way. They come in June.  Pray for the Lord to provide all they will need financially and logistically to get to the States and for their stay while they are there.   Pray for Brian and Jill as they prepare and make plans for the ministry and the guesthouse while they are away.  Pray for the children who attended our recent youth event. Pray for those who accepted Jesus as Savior. Pray for 2 Muslim boys who attended.   Pray for health and safety. Viruses are spreading like crazy during this hot and rainy season and there have been political riots not far from where the Kanyikes stay.  Thank you for praying for the Kanyike Family and for the ministry in Uganda.

Jenna Pepin – Culiacán, Sinaloa Mexico
Thank you so much for taking the time to pray for us and keep us connected to our “home” church, family, and friends.  We have a lot going on here in Culiacan, as always, but I ask you to pray for the following:  

1- Pray for Los Gavilanes, a new community in Nayarit among the Cora tribes. By God’s divine plan, we worked with them this month instead of the Kuare. Although they have received no formal training of any kind, they have created a small sending hub of churches with 7 pastors… the fruits of an old missionary woman that found their community more than 30 years ago! Pray that the Lord continues to grow them all in their walk with Him, and that He would protect them from the fierce persecution they often face.  
2- Continue to pray for the Kuare and our next proposed trip to visit them in August with the School of Missions.  
3- Continue to pray for my neck and shoulder injury, which thanks to God, it is finally coming back to normal.  
4- Pray for all of our Church-planting graduates (approximately 40 this year among our 4 campuses, including my daughter, Ruby) as they graduate in June and begin moving towards the callings God has placed on their lives.  
5- Pray for a new ministry that I have been blessed to be a part of at a local women’s rehab center. There are about 60 women we will be ministering to. Pray for continued favor with the director and that God would raise up many godly women from our Calvary churches to work with them.  And thank you so much for your prayers this past month! All of our April/May events have been a huge success! All of our Children’s Day events and outreaches went very well with many professions of faith. All of our women’s events had similar results with many new professions of faith. And our mission trip was AMAZING! God had to break down both of our vehicles to send us where He wanted us to go (LOL), but as a result, many men, women, and children made professions of faith, many people were ministered to via our medical brigade, and 7 pastors were encouraged and trained up to help them be even more effective. ❤️  Thank you all and God bless you.

PRAISE— my mom had another fall and was in the hospital and then transferred to a skilled nursing center, but is now back at home and doing well.

(This church comes every summer to assist us with VBS, and they are flying us out to assist them in Ministry). Specific prayer that someone will be able to stay with my mom during this time.  
3. Provisions for a nursery and youth room makeover.  
4.  Wisdom, wisdom, wisdom!!! I need so much of God’s wisdom in everything that I do!

Lilibeth Rabiella – Acapulco, Mexico

Hello dear brothers! My name is Lili, I am from Mexico and I serve in the missions area among other services at the Calvary Acapulco Church. On May 5, my brother Manuel was wounded by three bullets, he was in the wrong place, unfortunately. At this time, insecurity in Acapulco has increased due to organized crime and several civilians have died.   

Prompt recovery for my brother Manuel. May God provide a hospital in good condition where he can recover.  May God continue to open Manuel’s spiritual understanding and renew his inner man. May God transform his heart. May God give me wisdom, health, and fullness of the Holy Spirit to accompany my brother in this process. May God provide men with the character of Christ and use them to disciple my brother.  Please we need your prayers 🙏🏽  

With love ❤️ Lili – Email Blog

Darryl and Kayo Record – Cambodia

Please pray for our upcoming time in Japan from June 6 to August 6. We will be visiting and encouraging churches all over the country. Also, please pray for opportunities and wisdom to be witnesses before Kayo’s family. Please pray for our ministries and partners in Cambodia that God will continue to bless and guide them during our time away. Please pray for wisdom, favor, and provision regarding some financial decisions we are in the process of making. The Japanese Yen continues to lose value against the US Dollar, Benjamin’s educational expenses will continue to increase over the next three year, and other challenges. Right now, we don’t see any clear open doors, but are trusting God to open and close all the right doors at the right time so that we can continue to serve Him.  Please pray for renewed strength and vision for the next season in Cambodia during our time in Japan. We thank God that the weeks-long 105F (170-year record) heatwave has ended and that we are back in the normal high 90s. Not just for us, but even for the Cambodians, there is a sense of residual fatigue.
