Seeking prayer in the wrong place.

Recently a Digo woman came seeking a large loan so she could travel to another town and have a spiritual leader pray over her. She has been unable to sleep for many months, but the doctors can find nothing wrong with her physically. When prayer in the name of Jesus was offered instead of the loan, she was unable to accept it and went away.
Please pray that these disturbances will be used by the Holy Spirit to open her heart. Pray the Lord will appear to her in a dream.

A Language Teacher Ponders

Pray for a Digo man who has taught missionaries how to speak his language for over ten years. By using the Bible as their study guide, he has been exposed to the truths in it over and over. He seems to be pondering it seriously these days. Pray for him to cross over from death into life by putting his faith in Christ.

Digo Breakthrough Prayer

“As the Digo have been known for their zeal for Islam, may they become even more zealous for Jesus.”

Prayer for unity

Please pray for unity among the Digo church in Kwale. We know that Satan will take advantage of any opportunity to sneak in and cause problems, but we also know that Jesus’s power is greater!

Known For Their Zeal

Please continue to pray for unity among believers who are ministering to the Digo, and that as the Digo have been known for their zeal for Islam, to that same degree they will become known for their zeal and commitment to Jesus. Pray for local churches who have believers from other tribes to be stirred up to share the gospel and receive the Digo as their brothers and sisters in Christ.

6 new believers baptized!

This week we have an awesome praise for the Digo!
It had been a difficult week for the Digo, dealing with illness & funerals. But in the midst of those trials God was working and on Sunday, 6 new Digo Christians were baptised!! Please pray for these believers as they return to family and friends and deal with the suffering that comes with following Jesus. May they have grace to stand firm in their faith.

Recovering and Responsive

When the Bibi (matriarch) of a local Digo village became very sick Saturday morning, all the usual Quranic rituals were performed. That didn’t bring results so the local missionary was asked to come to the house; he requested permission to pray for her and was hesitantly allowed. The Bibi was unresposive and seemed quite close to death so the family took her to the hospital, by the afternoon she was responsive and recovering! Pray that this Bibi would understand Jesus is the one who healed her, not the rituals. Pray that she’ll become accepting of the missionaries living in her village & will allow interaction between that family & hers. Pray for that entire family to become known for their passion for Jesus!

Zealous and Passionate

Please pray that as the Digo have been known for being zealous followers of Islam, they will change and become passionate followers of Christ. Pray that many will come to faith in Him during Ramadan.

Hearing About Jesus At the Same Time

As Ramadan has begun, the prayer of our team is that we’ll have opportunities to share with the Digo about who Jesus is. In a local village, one of our team members has been breaking the fast with a Muslim family and has had several opportunities to speak His name to them. Please pray for that family as they continue to observe the fast but are hearing about Jesus at the same time.

A Favourite Strategy

A favourite strategy of Satan is to divide Christians who are trying to share Christ in an unreached tribe. Pray that the Christians who are working among the Digo will be “united in spirit, intent on one purpose,” and that their unity will powerfully speak to the truth of the gospel.
