Dustin and Miranda Mahoney’s young children, Luca and Eva, recently taught neighborhood kids how to share the gospel using chalk on a driveway. A 7 year old, Alexia, was especially receptive. Pray that the Spirit opens the hearts of their grandparents, who are from Guatemala and seem bound by religious tradition. It is wonderful to see a young generation of disciple-makers!

We are excited to celebrate what the Lord is doing in Alabama.  In recent weeks, Paul Colburn and other co-laborers have partnered with 17 churches in their area to distribute 1,248 30lb boxes of food in Tallapoosa county.  Churches in the past haven’t really worked together and now they are praying for one another as well as being open to discipleship multiplication movements.  And last week they had over 20 salvations!

Please join us in praying for people throughout the Caribbean island of Guadeloupe…

Heavenly Father, as we focus our prayer and fasting on places throughout the Caribbean, we come before you today on behalf of people living on the islands of Guadeloupe. Though nearly everyone would claim to be Christian, the reality is that they are clinging to religion when you desire relationship. So we pray, Lord, for an awakening to sweep through these islands. We pray for a stirring of hearts eager to experience your redemptive love. Father, we ask for you to connect us to a person in Guadeloupe whose heart is set on making disciples of Jesus. We desire and will be dedicated to serving this person, helping them to be successful in their efforts.

Dave Marrett shares this story from Australia…

This week I met Mack.  Mack was wrongly imprisoned in maximum security for a crime he did not commit. After almost 2 years he was exonerated, but the scars of that trauma have stayed with him. He loves Jesus but has not found connection to other followers for some time and he recently attempted to take his own life after separating from his wife and children. After spending some time with him, we re-established his identity in Christ, encouraged him with the why, who, how and promised to walk with him and disciple him to be a man with purpose for the Kingdom – a warrior of Messiah!  Pray for Mack as he seeks Jesus, obeys and looks to find reconciliation with his wife and children.

During a recent Disciple Making Movement (DMM) training in Sierra Leone, five of the participants realized they had never placed their faith in Jesus. Praise the Lord, they are now family members. They have been obedient in water baptism and are now equipped to share their testimonies and the Gospel with others. Let’s pray for them to be used mightily by our Lord to advance His Kingdom.

Let’s pray for our sister Esther in a security sensitive area of South Asia. She has had some problems with her pregnancy. In addition to that, her husband has abandoned her because a local Buddhist monk told her husband that since she is a follower of Jesus many bad things will come. Her in-laws have also threatened her and her baby’s life. One of our leaders and his wife are caring for her at the hospital and trying to share with her husband.

Roughly 600 Biglife families and thousands of others have been significantly impacted by flooding. As our teams reach out to help, please pray for the Lord’s provision, protection and peace during this difficult time. Pray for the flooding to soften the heart of the Cambodian people, resulting in significant Kingdom growth.

Today we have a wonderful testimony to share from India…

Rohit is 13 years old. For all of his life he had suffered from epilepsy and in spite of many treatments he continued to suffer. Unfortunately, Rohit recently became very ill and the doctors informed his parents that he may not live much longer. His parents were very heartbroken and were desperate to find help for their son.

By God’s grace, Rohit’s mother had received a New Testament some time ago from Sister Bauri. The mother remembered this and took it out to begin reading it. While reading, the mother found Sister Bauri’s phone number that she had placed inside the New Testament. She called Sister Bauri who prayed with her and encouraged her to keep praying and trust in the Lord for her son’s healing. Rohit’s mother also began coming to the nearby group. The disciples of Jesus in this group began to join in the prayers for Rohit.

Praise the Lord that within a few weeks Rohit was completely healed. Now, the entire family are disciples of Jesus and they are sharing this testimony with those in their village and surrounding areas.

Jereme VanderWoude shared a great story with us from Michigan. Tyler has been discipling his dad, Steve. Praise the Lord that Steve led a friend to the Lord. For water baptism, they had to get resourceful and filled an old boat with water. Let’s pray for this obedience to continue for countless more generations.

Join us in prayer for people throughout Sint Maarten…

Heavenly Father, we come into your throne room today on behalf of people living throughout Sint Maarten. Though many would say they are Christians, it is apparent that more and more are not understanding your deep desire to have relationship with them. The Gospel is being polluted by other belief systems which our enemy is perpetrating. So, Father, we cry out and ask for you to ignite a new work in this nation. Lord, stir their hearts and enlarge their vision. We ask for you to help us identify a person of peace who we can work through to provide discipleship training in hopes of seeing a Kingdom movement established. In the name of Jesus we pray. Amen.

Puja is 13 years old and had become very ill. She was experiencing swelling in her body and a blood disorder. Though her parents visited many medical doctors, none were able to effectively treat Puja. Next, her parents turned to witch doctors. They too were powerless in helping this child.

Praise the Lord for arranging Puja’s parents to meet Sister Gita. After hearing the problem with Puja, Gita began praying and also had many other disciples of Jesus pray as well. God answered these prayers in such a wonderful way. Puja is now totally healed.

Because of this miracle, Puja and her entire family placed their faith in Jesus. As Puja shares her testimony with others in her village and surrounding area, pray for them to find salvation in Jesus as well.

Pray for Brother Gibson as he leads an emerging Kingdom movement in his nation of Malawi. This past weekend, 9 more surrendered to the Lordship of Jesus and were baptized.

Matt Schneider visited Springfield this past weekend in advance of moving there with his family in a couple of months for the purpose of reaching into this community with the Gospel.

It seems that no place on earth has escaped the impact of Covid-19. While the pandemic has brought great challenges and sorrow, it has also opened new doors of opportunity that did not previously exist. Praise the Lord for massive Kingdom growth that has resulted from the pandemic. Due to the growth, Bibles are necessary for the discipleship that is underway with so many new disciples of Jesus.

Over the past few years, the Lord has provided opportunities for Biglife to serve in several countries throughout Africa. Because the Lord has raised up indigenous leaders, needs due to the Covid-19 pandemic have been directly met by our local teams very efficiently and effectively. Now, there is a need for Bibles for all the new disciples of Jesus that have come from the outreaches.

20

Food distributions, necessary because of the Covid-19 outbreak, are playing a key role in opening new doors for the gospel to be shared. The result has been over 10,000 people placing their faith in Christ. Hallelujah! As our teams follow up and disciple these new believers, Bibles are needed for them to become rooted in their faith.
