Northern Asia — China

China, home to well over one billion people, is the world’s oldest living civilization.


Hong Kong

Exotic Hong Kong, a tiny land comprised largely of mountains and rugged terrain, is home to a variety of religions, cultures and ethnicities.



Considered to be indigenous to China, the Hui are untouched by the modern Christian awakening.

We are praying every child in Africa will have the opportunity to experience the love of Jesus—and we're working hard at it. Today, take some time to intercede for the lost children of Africa! Pray that the Lord would burden people's hearts to go and share His love. Pray that the local church would reach out and invest in the next generation of leaders.

Asia Pacific

Typhoon Hagibis slammed Japan on Saturday, causing widespread flooding and loss of life. More than 125,000 households are still without power and/or running water. Sixty-three people have died, and many are still missing. At least 7,000 homes have been destroyed. Japan needs your prayers. Residents in disaster-stricken areas are persevering, but they still lack what they really need — true life in Jesus Christ. Please pray for local believers to boldly share the gospel. Japan is less than 1 percent Christian. Please pray for more workers for the kingdom of God in Japan!
— Shelley Carl, AGWM missionary to Japan


For those of us living in a country at peace, it’s almost impossible to imagine what families and communities in Syria are going through as various nations attempt to gain the upper hand in the region. Pray for peace to be restored and for those who have been traumatized by the conflict to find the healing only the gospel can bring.
— Omar Beiler, AGWM Eurasia regional director


We are excited to announce that as a part of the Thrive Initiative that God birthed in our hearts “to partner with church planters and revitalization projects across Northwest Europe,” we are leading a team to launch a church in Tervuren, Belgium. It is a community nestled just on the eastern edge of Brussels. There are seven communities that are clustered geographically that have been identified by the national church as an unreached area without a local church presence. We are just beginning the earliest stages of building a team with the hopes of an official launch in Spring 2020.
— Joel and Gail VanBriggle, AGWM missionaries to Belgium

International Ministries

It was a dream come true this past weekend to speak at the national “Hombres de Honor” men’s conference in Costa Rica on the subject of whole life development. This event, in part, is the result of ministry investments Kerry and I made 20 years ago that continue to produce Kingdom dividends. God is so good!
— Doug Marsh, Royal Rangers International director, AGWM International Ministries

Latin America Caribbean

I praise God for the settlement that has been reached between opposing factions in Ecuador. But I would invite you to faithfully hold up this nation in prayer, that peace would be fully restored and that our missionary team and national church fellowship would be able to walk through new doors of ministry opportunity.
— David Ellis, AGWM Latin America Caribbean regional director

Northern Asia

Please join me praying for peace and stability in Hong Kong. Weeks of unrest have taken a toll on people across the island.
— Ron Maddux, AGWM Northern Asia regional director
