Praise the Lord for His provision of food through the UN last month as well as abundant rain and crops nearing harvest. For now food continues to be tight for many families, but there is hope.
Please pray for Aaron, a church leader at the Ohilang church. Give thanks for his growth in the Lord over the past year and pray that the Lord may continue to grow and strengthen him. Pray for perseverence, boldness and trust in the Lord as he often needs to stand up under cultural pressure.
Ask God to provide a good rainy season and plentiful harvest. People are hungry and struggling after several poor rainy seasons. And pray God will open the hearts of the Lopit to see Him as their provider in this life and the life to come. Pray they will turn away from rainmaker worship, and worship the one true God.
Pray for good rains to arrive this month as the community looks to planting. Pray they would acknowledge the Lord has the provider of all good gifts and bow their knees to Him.
Pray for mercy for the people of South Sudan. They continue to suffer as rival armies clash and political factions vie for power. Many are fleeing to refugee camps. Pray for trauma healing and provision for these poor suffering people.
‘All is well’ in the Lopit region, as the title indicates. Bible studies are well underway among the men folk in a few villages around the Iboni area, we praise God for this news as these men eagerly await their study time each week. Relationships are being built and built up, again we just praise God for this happening – its all about HIM!!! Pray and praise our Almighty God!
Pray for the new believers among the Lopit. They are struggling but hanging in there. 3 members of the old TIMO team arrived safely back to a wonderful welcome by the Lopit. Praise God! Pray for more laborers in this beautiful harvest field. The fledging church needs mature godly leaders. Please pray!
Praise God that some AIM/AIC missionaries are returning to the Lopit. They were so very warmly welcomed back, it was a great encouragement to witness. But please pray for the Lopit as they are experiencing greater hunger than ever before. Many want to, or have, left for the refugee camps in either Kenya or Uganda mainly due to starvation rather than the terrible conflict in the country at this time. Please pray for those left behind, that they would turn to God and be saved. That they would put their trust and hope in Him.
