The Word Becomes the Main Event

The D family listened eagerly to the overview account of the Bible and the first day of creation. It was obvious that the snacks and conversation in the first half hour were simply preliminary to this “main event.” They made a few comments, asked a couple of questions, observed a point or two that was similar to the Koran. At the end they were eager for prayer for the needs of various members of the family. This week they are expecting lesson 2 on Thursday, and it’s obvious they plan for the Bible study to be an ongoing event. Praise God for the opportunity to meet with the whole family in their home. Praise God for their openness and interest. Please pray for the Spirit to enlighten their eyes and take away any fears, so the light of the gospel can shine in their hearts and the whole family will be saved.

Love Is Opening Doors for the Gospel

Pray for a South Asian family who are becoming more and more open to the gospel. Visits with their neighbours, missionaries, are frequent and loving. God is opening new opportunities to pray with and for them in their trials. He is healing family members who have serious illnesses. They are listening to the stories of the Bible. Now the whole extended group have requested to hear the Bible stories together at their house. Please pray for the Lord to work mightily through His word and bring the whole family to faith in Christ.

Needing encouragement

A young South Asian woman and her whole immediate Muslim family became believers in Christ two years ago. She would like to attend discipleship school, but needs funds and a visa to go to Australia for the course. Her family has been ostracised by their relatives and are suffering difficulties in business and relationships. Please pray that in a variety of ways the Lord will encourage these new believers to rely on Him and seek Him for deliverance, and that they will receive some signs of encouragement that He sees and knows their needs.

Coming to Faith as a Family

The women in a South Asian family have been hearing the gospel repeatedly from two missionaries, and are making progress in their understanding of Jesus. Recently one woman who had a diagnosis of MS went to India to have a medical checkup. Before she left, a missionary prayed for her healing in Jesus’ name. All her tests came back completely clear. Her sight, which had deteriorated, has also been restored to normal. Although she is not yet ready to conclude that Jesus has healed her, there is much rejoicing. Please pray for further progress in sharing the gospel with the family, and that as the women are growing in their understanding of who Jesus is, that the Lord would also be sending emissaries to the men, so that the whole extended family will be saved.

Update on The South Asians of East Africa

A South Asian Muslim family has been shocked and grieved by the drowning of a 4 year old nephew and the heart attack of an uncle. They are beginning to listen to Bible stories and they have received a book that shares Creation to Christ. Little by little they are beginning to hear about God’s great love for sinners and the uniqueness and sacrifice of Jesus for our sins. Please pray that the whole family will come to faith in Christ…men, women and children.

Update on The South Asians of East Africa

My young neighbour texted me, “Can you come today instead of tomorrow? I’m leaving for Tanzania tomorrow.” She and her brother are going to live with their father, since their mother, here in Kenya, has been diagnosed with MS. Her parents divorced years ago, and she’s lived with her mom until now. This will mean a huge change for her, possible further indoctrination in their Islamic faith. Please pray that this afternoon’s visit with her will allow me to share again with her how much Jesus loves her, that He died for her sins and rose again, and that it is His righteousness alone that can make us fit for heaven. Pray for wisdom about whether to give her some Christian literature to take with her, along with another small gift to please a teenage girl’s heart. Please pray for the Lord to craft the visit in such a way that only those family members who are open to the gospel will be with us, and for great freedom both for me and for them to share what’s in our hearts. Thank you for your prayers!

Pray for the Kenyan South Asians

Please pray that the Kenyan South Asians that are Hindu would come to understand Christ’s captivating holiness and that He is not “one among many” but unique in His Divinity.

For the Kenyan South Asians of a MusIim faith, please pray that they would see Christ as not just an upstanding Prophet, but as he truly is, the divine Son of God.
