Pray for the Bible schools of West Africa. Most of them have had to close early this year due to COVID-19. They are to church growth what the lungs are to the body. They equip pastors who are desperately needed to continue to bring in the harvest until Jesus comes. In Africa, we always say, "Biblically trained, Spirit-empowered workers are Africa’s hope.” Pray the schools will be able to reopen this fall. Most of our schools and students have no way to study online, so we need the schools to reopen to continue to train this great workforce.
Iris has had the opportunity to lead her ladies’ groups via Zoom during this COVID confinement. She just started a conversational English outreach to women in Indonesia, China and Japan; and has been leading her other group of ladies through the Book of Acts. Pray for continued open doors to ministry.

Pray they will be have a continued presence in the country and the people’s hearts would be open. May the Omani people know the everlasting water that will leave them spiritually satisfied.
Millions of poor Roma in Central and Southeastern Europe, most of whom live in cramped conditions without access to health care and basic sanitation, are facing a humanitarian disaster. Those who already earn a meager living by collecting junk and plastic or selling food, household products and flowers are currently unable to carry out even this informal work within COVID restrictions. Please pray for the Roma communities in the eastern parts of Europe.

Thank you to all who pray for us! On a recent trip before quarantine, Tim was driving with a car full of people and the tire fell off when the ball joints were too tired to go on! It could have happened so many places but it was best-case scenario, and two of the guys in the car were able to work together to fix it so that Tim could make the six-hour drive home.

The Yi are isolated geographically by mountain ranges and separated by six major language dialects. Pray for a Bible to be made available in their language, and for God to call those who would go and minister to these remote people.
