  • (WAH-soo-loo) – Work in the Wassulu village of "Monroe" began around eight years ago when the Muslim village chief there welcomed Wassulu evangelism workers, but not before their request to share publicly in another village was denied. After years of praying, sharing the gospel in various ways, and visiting the people of "Monroe," the team rejoices in reporting that two women have declared their desire to become followers of Christ! Nancy and Sarah had heard the good news before, but after recently seeing the "JESUS" film in their own language, the Holy Spirit worked in their hearts and gave them […]
  • "Praise the Lord with us for the new believers who were recently baptized by Jangwale Baptist Church in northern Tanzania!" writes the Theological Education Team. "Pray for these young believers to grow in their faith. Ask God to protect them from all evil and embolden them with His Holy Spirit. Intercede for them, asking that God will give them discernment from all false teaching and help them to be grounded in the Word of Truth. Pray for the pastor and other church leaders to be diligent as they nurture and disciple these new followers. Ask the Holy Spirit to work […]
  • (OO-tar pra-DESH) – Pray for the Badhi, a people group that is currently unengaged and unreached in West Uttar Pradesh. Recently, a local brother in Christ was able to meet people who have knowledge about the location and occupations of Badhi who live in the state. Pray that this information will allow believers to locate these Badhi people so they can hear the good news and respond in faith.
  • Life has been incredibly busy for Wafaa since last summer. She wrapped up her first year of trade school and had an internship in another city. She was too busy to meet up with the local fellowship for quite some time. The brothers and sisters tried to keep up with her, sending her messages and asking how she was doing, but they felt like she was pretty distant. Thankfully, she made time for fellowship this past month! Everyone was overjoyed to see her. Although she was busy, she seemed to be good in health and in spirit. Give thanks to […]
  • (OO-tar pra-DESH) – Thank the Lord for local harvest workers who are involved in the work of kingdom advancement! Aquila and another brother had the privilege of training and coaching four strong Muslim-background believers who are based in another state in the northern part of India. Baba, a brother from a neighboring state, is also taking part in that work. Ishak, one of the brothers who attended the training, stepped forward for baptism, a result of the Lord working through Yakub, another brother, in his life. This is the fruit of success, as Muslim-background believers are training other Muslim-background believers […]
  • Praise God with us for a new believer among an unreached people group (UPG) whose three friends became believers after he asked a worker to share the gospel with them! Thank God with us for how He is using workers to spread the gospel among this UPG. Please pray for the four new believers, asking that they will live a life of faith. Please continue to pray for several workers who recently moved to live closer to this UPG, asking that they will successfully transition into new ministries there. Ask also for good relationships with the people group and partners […]
  • (ma-COW) – As an international church prepares for repairs and renovations to their church location, pray for all to go smoothly and without complications. Ask the Lord to bless the church to stay united and flexible as they will be meeting in a different location. Pray that Jesus will remain the central focus and that the brothers and sisters will keep growing in their faith during this time of transition.
  • Please begin to pray now for a global meeting this year of Baptist missionary-sending organizations, denominations, and churches from around the world. Pray that the Lord will gather leaders who will "cast a vision" in their countries for His heart for the nations.
  • (foo-koo-OH-kah) – "In December 2023, we told you about a new student exchange opportunity between Seinan Jo Gakuin and a Southern Baptist school in Tennessee. We asked that you pray that this would bring Japanese students to call on Jesus as their Lord and Savior. God answered your prayers! Charming, a Japanese high school student, helped her family host two young women as part of this program. Charming's mother and younger brother are Christians, and Charming had heard the gospel many times, but she had always said 'no' to following Jesus. During the young women's visit, Charming took them to […]
