PRAYER REQUESTS
(1/26) YFC (Youth for Christ) kids that have said yes to Jesus. Please pray for them as they grow in Christ through the Holy Spirit that they will make the right choices in life as they grow: Miguel, Gregory, Dexter, Jordan, Joshua, Sage, Yuliza, Aaron, Cortez, Dylan, Jason, Justin, Naheim, Shann, ZyQuan, Adarious, Ashton, Bryon, Gage, Ryan, Gavin

Never before in their lives have they been recognized as being useful. Finally they have done it! On Friday, Simon Peter, John Bosco, Fiona, Adam, Aron, Allan, Shadrack, Joseph, and Patricia graduated from The Ideas Workshop. We have a very small idea what the jail of silence does to a person who is deaf. They miss so much especially in this country: School–parents don’t send them because they can’t learn, Opportunity–they can’t participate, Hope–No one tells them about Jesus using signing, Skills–Few families can afford to send their deaf children to vocational school because of poverty. Your support and prayer made this memorable day happen!
(6/19) Wycliffe Bible Translators –  Pray for travel mercies for Craig in Asia in a series of meetings from September to October 2023. Pray for the Planning for Faith and Farming Workshop in Chiang Mai in February 2024. A praise that Bible Translation is happening with the fastest acceleration ever.
