Please pray for Cypress and everyone else in the AGWM global family impacted by COVID-19. “Cypress tested positive for COVID, but she’s asymptomatic and feeling great. Only seven more days of quarantine until we can get these kids back out into the world and on their bikes. We are missing our team BIG, but enjoying this time together. I handle being cooped up worse than the kids do. Long drives and times of worship with my man are this mama’s saving grace.”
— Andrea Marlin, AGWM missionary to Mozambique with husband Matt and children Cedar, Cypress and Acacia
Please pray for us as we move forward with plans of planting a church in Auckland, New Zealand! We long to see God redeem the lost and bring people into a personal relationship with Him. We long to see Him restore families, heal broken bodies, and transform lives with the power of His gospel in this highly secularized country.
— Nathan and Lisa Turney, AGWM missionaries to New Zealand
Pray for the Rohingya refugees as they have suffered, been displaced, and faced persecution. Close to a million Rohingya people fled to Bangladesh during the August 2017 military crackdown in Myanmar’s Rakhine state. 70% of the refugees are without adequate shelter and half have no safe drinking water.
We were able to partner with Hope Church Ennis recently for their first-ever outreach week. Missionary friends of ours, Randal and Kendra Baird, are on a church planting team in Co. Clare, Ireland. Their church is one year old, and they held their first Vacation Bible School. We were able to do kids ministry with them that week as well as speak in their youth service, where many gave their lives to the Lord for the first time.
— Tom and Brooke Harshberger, AGWM missionaries to Northern Ireland
Every Friday, Global Initiative coordinates the Jumaa Prayer Time to pray for the salvation of Muslims. We recently interceded for witnessing opportunities for Christians who are part of Kuwait’s migrant worker population, for God’s provision for Muslims coming to Christ in Uganda, and for the protection of new Christians in Somalia. You can join this prayer movement at reachingmuslimpeoples.com.
On October 31, we will celebrate 22 years of 24/7 fasting and prayer in the Prayer Fortress by walking and running the 28 kilometers from the Santa Ana Volcano (where Pentecost was poured out on El Salvador in 1906 straight from Azusa) to the Prayer Fortress where we have been praying for revival since October 31, 1998. Please join us in praying that this event will be a catalyst for God’s divine provision for King’s Castle even as we expand our vision for serving the needs of El Salvador during these months of pandemic crisis.
— Don and Terri Triplett, AGWM missionaries to El Salvador
Pray for China's Naxi, an animist people group from the foothills of the Himalayas.
From sprawling cities to remote jungles, God is opening doors for ministry across Asia Pacific.
The Asia Pacific region extends from the windswept prairies of Mongolia to the thousands of islands scattered across the Pacific Ocean. Languages and cultures are diverse, and wealth exists beside poverty. Some people are isolated in remote jungles, while others live in massive apartment buildings in sprawling metropolitan areas. Yet within these diverse locations, the truth of God’s Word is transcending all barriers. Although the church in Asia Pacific is growing, the gospel has yet to penetrate the minds and hearts of millions. Poverty, disease and illiteracy create many challenges for outreach. Frequent natural disasters increase the struggles people face. In some places, political unrest and government restrictions limit the spread of the gospel. Within these difficult circumstances, God is calling believers to full-time ministry, and many are stepping into leadership roles. However, a number of them lack training and are not adequately equipped to pastor a church. Missionaries are working to bridge this gap by providing quality Bible instruction, and a few national churches have instituted mentorship programs. Still, a concerted effort is needed to meet the demand. God’s work is not hindered by religious restrictions or government decrees. Throughout Asia Pacific’s metropolitan centers, islands and jungle villages, missionaries and national believers are partnering to share the gospel across the region.
Years of witchcraft and animism brought great darkness to the island of Pohnpei. Then came the Holy Spirit.
Pohnpei is the largest of 607 islands in the western Pacific Ocean that comprise the Federated States of Micronesia. Mangrove swamps cover most of Pohnpei’s shoreline. Reef islands nearby have beautiful natural and artificial beaches. Rugged mountain terrain and luxuriant forests dominate Pohnpei’s interior. Mount Nahna Laud, the island’s highest point, is considered one of the wettest spots on earth, with an average annual rainfall in excess of 400 inches. Pohnpei came under Spanish control in the 17th century. In 1899 Spain sold its interests in Pohnpei to Germany, and in 1914 the Japanese took possession of the island. Japanese rule ended abruptly with the start of World War II. In 1978 the people of Pohnpei, Chuuk, Yap and Kosrae voted to form the Federated States of Micronesia. In 1991 the FSM became a member of the United Nations. Pohnpei now has a constitutional government in free association with the United States. For many years, spiritual oppression lay heavily on Pohnpei because of its long history of witchcraft and animism. However, in 1970 the Assemblies of God of Micronesia was declared indigenous, and in 1976 the first real outpouring of the Holy Spirit came to the island. Healings, deliverances and other signs and wonders continue to characterize the island.
Once members of a wealthy, powerful empire, the Western Cham live as a forgotten minority in need as they eke out a living.
Cambodia’s Western Cham traces its ancestry to the ancient Champa kingdom, a wealthy maritime empire. Originally centered in Vietnam, the Champa kingdom gradually lost its territory, leading many Cham to seek a new homeland in Cambodia. Most Western Cham now live near Cambodia’s major cities and along the Mekong River. They speak Western Cham and write using Devanagari — the script of many modern Indian languages. The Western Cham make up the majority of Cam bodia’s small Muslim population. Under the Khmer Rouge regime in the 1970s, they suffered greatly as entire Cham villages were slaughtered. Today, they are a small, disenfranchised minority in a majority Buddhist nation. Farming, fishing and building boats provide the livelihood of most Cham. Villagers are extremely poor. Homes are made of split bamboo and are elevated above the ground to protect against flooding. The Cham’s diet of fish, rice and vegetables is adequate, but most other necessities of life are severely lacking. The Cham gradu ally accepted Islam over a period of several centuries. However, animistic practices continue to be observed in many rural areas. The early Cham developed a unique form of Islam that is different from Middle Eastern patterns. However, in recent years, many Cham have begun practicing a more global form of Islam.
