Team Expansion workers serve in places where sharing the Gospel with nationals is sensitive, difficult, and sometimes dangerous. Therefore pseudonyms or code words are used to safeguard workers and believers in those places. Pray, by the Spirit of God, for disciple-making movements to happen in these very sensitive fields.
Father God, open a door for the Word to speak the mystery of Christ to the remaining unreached people groups in Laos. Cause us to lift our eyes, look to the fields, and see that they are already white for harvest. We pray that You, the Lord of the Harvest, will send out laborers into your harvest among all these groups. (Col 4:3; Mat 9:37-38)
Father, please open highways and inroads so Your Word can enter specific people groups and cities. Release Your Spirit to cause many to seek you as the True and Living God. Pray for these groups or cities: the Serbs in Bosnia, the Khmer in Cambodia, the Druze of the Golan Heights, Ancona and Rome, Italy; Tokyo, Japan; the Mien of Laos, and the people of Taiwan.
Please pray for JR’s children and grandchildren as they serve in NA. Ask for safety for mission workers around the world during protests and tension. Pray for improvement in health for JR and his wife.
