The 17 year old daughter of Pastor Ludy (Honduras) was abducted last week and taken to a remote area in an attempted assault and rape. A car miraculously came onto the scene causing the attacker to flee before she was harmed. Praise God for His protection. Please pray for protection as we are reminded that we live and minister in dangerous locations.
Please pray for Mark as he is writing the ministry Daily Devotional for 2021.
Please pray for the alarming increase in the abuse and violence in the homes during the pandemic.
Please pray about the sharp increase in violent crime, especially in the marginalized ministry areas, as the Costa Rica unemployment rate is at an all-time high of 24.4%.
The poverty rate in Costa Rica is at the highest in nearly 3 decades. Poverty in Costa Rica reached 26.2% of households, the highest level since 1992, amid the impact of the coronavirus pandemic. In addition, 96,697 MORE people have entered into EXTREME poverty this year in Costa Rica. May the entire ministry be known for COMPASSION.
Over 1800 bags of groceries have been delivered to families living in "crisis". The much needed groceries have been delivered to families in the three primary Costa Rica ministry areas of Los Guido, La Carpio, and Tejarcillos, the ministry areas in Nicaragua and Honduras, and a church in Venezuela. THANK YOU! Please pray that this tangible way of caring for the most needy will point them to the Lord Jesus.
Please pray for Rosa, Lucrecia, Diana and Josefina - the ministry front line workers at the feeding center.
Please click here to follow us on facebook. Photos are being posted of some of the folks that are graduating from one discipleship book to the next. Please pray for them by name - for their protection both physically and spiritually, and for the disciples that they are also teaching. Please do not grow weary in praying for La Finca. A court case has been in process for over ten years where another person is claiming ownership of La Finca. The case was moved to a new court house with a new judge 2 years ago and there still has not been a hearing before this new judge in all of that time. Please pray for God to protect and defend what is His and pray for an end to this ongoing court battle.
Please pray for Pastor Sam, Pastor Iván, Pastor Ludy, and Mark as they pastor and lead churches in very difficult areas. Pray for their physical and spiritual protection. Pray for the protection of their flocks as the devil continues to be fierce and unwavering in his attacks.
