Missionary Moment – Prayers & Praise

New Theology Book on Mission in Portuguese

Early in May, 75 people gathered in Lisbon, Portugal, to celebrate the publication of a Portuguese translation of Dean Flemming’s book, Recovering the Full Mission of God: A Biblical Perspective on Being, Doing and Telling. The book provides a Wesleyan-Arminian resource for theological education and preparing people for ministry; however, the content of the book is accessible to any reader. The 44 copies of the volume (Recuperando a Missão Completa de Deus) were not enough to meet demand, so more copies will be printed for the Portugal District Assembly in November. “This is a clear sign of how much people need meaningful and helpful resources in their language for themselves, and to serve others,” said

Nikolaj Sawatzky, Eurasia Region literature coordinator.

PRAISE: Give thanks to God  for people who serve through the ministry of translation.

REQUEST: Pray that readers will understand the mission of God through their study of this valuable resource, and find their place in missions.

REQUEST: Pray for more God-inspired writers who can articulate Wesleyan-Arminian theology in practical, accessible ways, aiding in the preparation of men and women for ministry and missions.

PRAYERS & PRAISES

REQUEST: It is the goal of the Eurasia Region to provide adequate theological training for all districts in the fields for which European Nazarene  College (EUNC) is responsible (Central Europe, Commonwealth of Independent States, Western Mediterranean, and Northern  Europe). The Church of the Nazarene has learning centres in most established districts, but support for new works is  also needed. Pray for God’s guidance as strategy to go forward is determined, and pray for EUNC as the college continues to work hand in hand with the fields and districts.

— Ana  Maria Crocker de Diaz, serving in Guatemala

PRAYERS & PRAISES

“I  Am with Christ” PRAISE: Nargiza testifies: “When I accepted Christ and when I was growing in my faith, He gave me strength to witness to my family and tell them openly I am with Christ and I will never leave Him. When I announced that in my family, I experienced a lot of persecution especially from my dad.” Nargiza felt confident in God’s love for her, so she continued to show love and compassion to her family. After watching Nargiza for 11 years, her father saw the difference in her life and accepted Christ.

Give thanks to God for His grace in action in difficult places around the world, and for people like Nargiza who persevere in difficult situations to live Christ’s love, bringing family members and friends to Jesus.

PRAYERS & PRAISES

Encouragement for Cactus

PRAISE: Three men from another faith recently visited the Cactus African Church of the Nazarene in Texas for the first time. Pastor Kor, his congregation, and the team at Cactus Nazarene Ministries had prayed that God would lead them to people who would be open to hearing the Word of God, and that the congregation would be open to those who visited. This is why Cactus Nazarene Ministries exist—to extend life in Christ to people in the community. Would you give thanks to God for the Cactus African Church, and join them in prayer for these gentlemen and others like them in the community?
