A diverse land of climates and peoples, Eurasia presents both challenges and opportunities for sharing the gospel.

Prayer Requests

Africa

Pray for Mozambique. Reuters reports the number of dead from Cyclone Idai could rise to 1,000.

Cape Town, known as the Mother City, is the second largest city in South Africa. Not only is it multicultural, but tourists come from all over the world to visit the city. It is home to one of the only UPGs still in South Africa. This city is highly influential and would be a strategic place to plant an Urban Tribes church. Pray that God would guide UT leadership in this venture, and that He would call a team to go and plant the church in Cape Town, South Africa!

Last Sunday, in a small Malian village composed entirely of Muslims, 35 children attended the first Sunday School in the area’s history. Pray that their young hearts would soon accept the Word and fall in love with Jesus. Pray also for a new missionary team which is emerging there.

There are an estimated 2 million orphans in the country of Mozambique. These children deserve to be loved by families, and even more so, experience the love of Jesus. Pray for workers to go and minister to the orphaned children of Mozambique.

Asia Pacific

Please pray for the many families affected by the attack on the mosques in Christchurch, New Zealand. May the God of comfort surround all those affected by these terrible events.

Eurasia

This week a team will be going into a spiritually dark location in India to prayer walk and to see if this is a good place to set up a new team in the coming year. Pray for protection, health, and eyes to see how Jesus sees.

Europe

We really enjoyed participating in Students for Christ's annual Prayer Weekend in Athens, Greece. The prayer and fellowship with colleagues, as well as the sunny 60 degree weather, was a welcome relief to our Sarajevo winter. Since we have only been here 20 months, we have a lot to learn about student ministry and the Balkans! Please pray for all of us to hear from God for His strategy for ministering in this part of Europe. — Curtis and Sarah Hobbs, AGWM missionaries to Bosnia and Herzegovina

Please pray for the people of Utrecht as they process the tragic, deadly shooting on a tram that happened on March 18th. Pray for the victims, and that those responsible will be caught. All AGWM Europe personnel are safe and we join together in prayer for The Netherlands.

International Ministries

About two thirds of the world’s population are oral learners — either members of cultures who learn through non-written methods, or those who cannot read the language they speak. Oral Learners Initiative works to share the gospel with and disciple these groups through innovative methods. Please pray for their ongoing endeavors, and for all of those to whom they minister.

Latin America Caribbean

We have strategically gifted four “Children’s Church in a Box” starter kits to churches who want to reach and disciple children for Jesus. We have three more kits ready for delivery to indigenous churches who will also receive a children’s workers training seminar in conjunction with the kit. Pray with us for the growth of children’s ministry across Costa Rica. — Tim and Nicole Strange, AGWM missionaries to Costa Rica

Northern Asia

Pray for the Bendi Li, an animist people group that lives on the southern coast of China’s Hainan Island.
