prayer requests and praise updates
PRAY that all of our Global Workers, whether full time, mid term, or short term are filled with God's Spirit.
Global Workers are sent not just to learn culture or do humanitarian relief but to confidently proclaim the Word of God. There are times when the Holy Spirit fills someone in a special way to enable him or her to proclaim God’s Word. Pray that all of our global workers, wherever they are and whatever context they are in, will be strong in the Lord and filled with His Spirit."They traveled through the whole island until they came to Paphos.

You are full of all kinds of deceit and trickery. Will you never stop perverting the right ways of the Lord? Now the hand of the Lord is against you. You are going to be blind for a time, not even able to see the light of the sun.” Immediately mist and darkness came over him, and he groped about, seeking someone to lead him by the hand. When the proconsul saw what had happened, he believed, for he was amazed at the teaching about the Lord." Acts 13:6-12
