New Tribes Mission Prayer Requests

Good day everyone!

I was touched by a couple of prayer requests that went out by New Tribes Mission over the past couple of weeks and I'd love for my blogger family to lift them up in prayer with us!

  • Teachers!    Missionaries in Mozambique would like us to pray for teachers to teach their children while they are ministering the gospel to the tribes. We forget about that don't we?! I love how NTM brings the lives of the missionaries front & center! We seem to follow thought patterns that make us believe that missionaries are single, young people or married couples with no children. That's far from the truth! There are missionaries with 1 child to many children! Because there are no teachers for their children, mothers and fathers have to homeschool alongside their missionary responsibilities. We need to pray that God will provide for not just missionaries in Mozambique, but for those all over the world. It's a huge need that needs to be met, but we serve Jehovah who's track record says that He can do the impossible! Hallelujah!
  • Translation   Picture this: You've spent months with a tribe, learned their language, was able to share The Bible with them, helped them set up a church, raise up leaders, and it's time for you to leave. There's only one problem: It'd be awesome and beneficial to the new tribal disciples if they had a Bible to aid in their ministry and their personal spiritual growths. But, you've only got your English Bible and it's no point in leaving that with them since they can't read it! If only you could give them a Bible in their language...a few of them!  Well thanks to Bill and Donna Davis, the Palawano tribe will! They're currently in the process of translating Luke and would love, love, love our continual and fervent prayers that God will give them "stamina, clear thinking, and wisdom" along with "no interruption of their power source", the couple shares. What a task!
To find these prayer requests and keep up with other prayers requests of NT missionaries, go here

Now this is the confidence that we have in Him, that if we ask anything according to His will, He hears us.  And if we know that He hears us, whatever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we have asked of Him.
1 John 5:14,15 NKJV
