|The Scripture Engagement Team--All but three of us|
In the original list we asked you to pray for "direction and unity in deciding 'anchor projects'--that is communities we will develop relationships with over the next two years"
Earlier this year that prayer was answered as we felt a great deal of unity as we chose to focus our energy as a team on languages near to the town where we live, Jos. Some of these languages (Mwaghavul, Izere, Rigwe) not only have the New Testament already translated, but the Audio version is freely available! Others (Kuce, Iguta) are still in the early stages of translation--the best time for a community to start engaging with the Bible in their own language.
Since we chose these languages it feels like we have not been able to get "out to the field" and visit these languages much. Thank God for the first two visits since we chose the languages. Please pray we can get out and visit the people who speak these languages to help them get thinking about how they can use their languages for more effective sharing the good news and strengthening of the church.
Again, like "the twelve days of Christmas", you can also continue to pray for the first two prayer items.
- Clarity and direction for us as an organization as our Nigerian Missionaries look for new Ministry Partners to pray for and support them financially.
Related to this, pray for each member of our team to have all the ministry partners and the full support level they need. (Click here to for more information on how to pray!)
- Courage to step into opportunities, even if we don't know exactly how it will all work out. (Read about one new opportunity we have been stepping into)
