Africa is home to both rich resources and devastating need. In the midst of overwhelming crises, the church in Africa is seeing incredible growth.



Belarus suffered at the hands of communism. But even in the face of persecution, the church continues to minister.


Tunisian Arabs

Predominantly young and highly educated, Tunisian Arabs live under Islam’s influence, but many are seeking for truth.

Prayer Requests

Week of Feb 17, 2020


You may have seen in the news the recent explosion of locust hordes over a large swath of the Sahel—Kenya, Somalia, Ethiopia, Eritrea and Djibouti have been battling the worst locust outbreak in decades. Swarms are now spreading into Tanzania, Uganda and South Sudan. This is a region where up to 25 million people have endured three consecutive years of droughts and floods. The locusts have multiplied and threaten national crops. Famine is a very real possibility. Pray for wisdom among these governments as they take measures to control the outbreak. Pray, as well, for people to be open to the hope of the gospel as they face this mounting crisis.
— Greg Beggs, AGWM Africa regional director

Asia Pacific

We’re believing God will accomplish even greater things in Indonesia as we invest in His Mission together. He has been faithful in every part of this last season. We've learned that the greatest honor we will ever receive, is to answer the call of reaching the lost in Indonesia and the world. We invite you to continue praying for those who have NEVER been reached with the gospel, and to ask God to send those who are ready to answer His call to go.
— Tim and Kelly Pollick, AGWM missionaries to Indonesia


The Assemblies of God in Pakistan has suffered a deep loss in the death of their beloved general superintendent, Pastor Hashmat, following an extended illness. Please be in prayer for the Pakistan AG—that churches will continue to be planted, that the transition in leadership will be wonderfully God-directed, and that believers will guided by the Holy Spirit in taking the gospel into their communities.
— Omar Beiler, AGWM Eurasia regional director


Last month, we team taught a 40-hour evangelism class at Monte Esperança, the AG Portugal Bible school, with a balance of theory and practice. Pray for us as we prepare for two days of evangelism training in Lisbon the end of this month. We want to train a team and develop a team leader to reach out to the greater Lisbon area.
— Dan and Joy West, AGWM missionaries to Portugal

International Ministries

Builders International is moving ahead with large-scale church construction in Latin America Caribbean. They are completing a multi-year push to build 100 churches along the Amazon River in Brazil, and their Hope for Uruguay project aims to bring 100 churches to that nation, one of the most secular in the world. Would you pray for the Builders International staff as they coordinate the many construction teams coming from churches across the U.S.? This is one of the most valuable partnerships in AGWM, helping us to fulfill our mission to “establish the Church among all peoples, everywhere.”
— JoAnn Butrin, AGWM International Ministries director

Latin America Caribbean

Daniel and Janene Hazelrigg report the recent dedication of a new church in a remote community in the southern Mexican state of Chiapas. The service was held in Spanish and Tzotzil, an indigenous language spoken by about half a million people in the region. The local church dedication is a wonderful reflection of the large-scale outreach goals expressed at the National Evangelism Conference in Veracruz a few months later. Pray for AGWM missionaries to Mexico as they support the national church in their efforts to reach the lost in Mexico.

Northern Asia

Please continue to pray for all who are being impacted by COVID-19. Pray for more opportunities for Christ's followers to show His love in the midst of widening concerns.
