In India and Bangladesh, Cyclone Amphan has left great devastation in its wake. Many homes have lost roofs or been completely destroyed, including some of our Biglife family. At least one of our leaders, Tapan, is unaccounted for along with his family after leaving their house at 1 am because of the storm.

We received this wonderful praise from Hannah Holtkamp in Michigan over the weekend…

“We have a new sister today! This is one of my favorite stories God has been writing. I met Ali at a wedding last October, at which she was compelled to want to know the God who everyone was singing to (worshipping). In November she received a Bible. Then about a week and a half ago I texted her to see how she was doing and how I could pray for her. We’ve been reading the word every morning since then and God has been moving so powerfully and sweetly through His spirit and word! Ali went from death to life today!”

Join us in prayer for Barbados…

Heavenly Father, we come before you today asking for your Kingdom to increase in Barbados. Lord, we know it is your desire for every person on this island nation to know and worship you. So, we ask for your help in identifying persons of peace and creating opportunities to train the people of Barbados how to multiply disciples of Jesus. Lord, we are ready to act whenever you see fit according to your will.

Our new sister-in-Christ is 48 years old and comes from a Hindu background. Her husband is older and is ailing, but prior to the pandemic he provided for his family by doing small jobs. Since the lockdown, they have had no food or other essentials. They were barely surviving when our team visited their village to distribute food.

One of our leaders, Roma, had the opportunity to share the Gospel with Shakuntala. She had a very receptive heart, repented and received Jesus as her Savior. She is excited to follow only Jesus and to share Him with her neighbors.

Let’s pray for our sister as she begins to share with others. Pray for her husband’s heart and the hearts of her neighbors to be just as receptive as Shakuntala’s.

We received the following message from our dear brother, Dave Marrett, in Australia…

“Good morning from Oceania beloved – Pray for training that starts tomorrow with 2 brothers from New Zealand that I met through our young Aussie guys we are discipling locally – Due to the Virus, these two guys had to leave Australia and head back to NZ – they have been joining our 3/3rds and our midweek Daniel study and have jumped at the opportunity to be trained to make disciples and plant churches – one of the guys is originally from New Caledonia which is also on our Oceania target list – so God is doing all this and creating connections!”

Let’s be in prayer for this to ignite a disciple making movement that sweeps throughout New Zealand, spreads to New Caledonia and beyond!

Heavenly Father, we cry out today for the souls of the Venezuelan people – those living in their home country as well as the diaspora. Lord, these precious people have endured great hardships in recent years and so our hearts ache for their physical needs. We pray for your provision for every place they are located. Even more so, our hearts ache for their spiritual needs as so many are perishing to a Christ-less eternity. Lord, we ask for your provision of a Luke 10 person of peace both in Venezuela and among Venezuelan people living outside their country. We pray for open doors and receptive hearts for disciple making movement training.

I am 32 years old and come from a Hindu family. From my childhood, I suffered from mental problems. It was so bad that I had to drop out of school and stay at home most of the time. I was unable to work or do anything productive because of my mental state. My family and I had given up hope that I would improve. We thought my whole life would be this way.

We are so grateful that a Christian brother came to our village in recent months to share about Jesus. He was a big encouragement. He suggested that my family should begin to meet with him and other Christians in one of the groups in our area so they could become aware of my affliction and pray for healing. After three months of prayer, the Lord is healing me. I am doing much better now.

Experiencing the love of God in such a profound way, I decided that He is the only one who I should place my faith in. Not only that, all of my family have also surrendered to the Lordship of Jesus. I thank God for His loving grace. Please do pray for my complete healing and for this testimony to draw many others to Jesus.

Later this month, 24 leaders from 12 nations throughout the Middle East and North Africa will meet virtually for the first time as a regional team. Please pray for the Lord to use this time together to strengthen relationships, increase unity and accelerate the advance of His Kingdom.

Join us in prayer for Nepal…

Heavenly Father, we celebrate today the way you are moving in the country of Nepal. We are grateful for our brother, Moses, and the many leaders throughout this nation who continue to multiply disciples of Jesus. No pandemic, nor some of the remotest locations on the face of the earth, are a hindrance for the move of your Spirit. Hallelujah! We pray for the day when people on every mountain throughout Nepal are worshipping you as their creator and making you known to the others that inhabit their area.

Praise the Lord for 2 separate trainings that have taken place for dozens of people connected to Winter Jam.

It is awesome to see the Lord connect His children around the world for His Kingdom purposes. Brother Matjaž in Slovenia connected Nick Twomey in Traverse City, Michigan to a contact in Canada named Nathan. Nick, along with a person he is discipling named Kevin, have been discipling Nathan who has been faithful to apply what he is learning. The Lord connected Nathan to Britany who he has been discipling and who was baptized in recent days. Now, Nathan is going to assist Britany in starting a group. Let’s pray for Britany as she walks in the ways and commands of Jesus to love God, love others and make disciples.

Praise the Lord for this example of 2 Timothy 2:2!

“And what you have heard from me in the presence of many witnesses entrust to faithful men, who will be able to teach others also.”

Brother Kamal received a report from Brother John in South Sudan. Kamal and Benjamin trained John and his network this year. Praise the Lord that John is being faithful to pass on to others that which he received. John trained a group of about a dozen men in recent days. Praise the Lord that these men are now equipped to share Jesus with others and have been sent out to do so. Let’s pray for all those who were trained to be faithful. In addition, our prayer are needed due to flooding that has happened in this place.

I am from a Buddhist background and was very much devoted to the ritualistic practices. One day I was severely attacked by demonic spirits. My family performed a lot of Buddhist rituals and spent a lot of money on medical treatments for my healing, but nothing was curing me.

In desperation, my family decided to visit our neighbor’s house when a Christian fellowship was taking place. The Lord was so gracious to me. After the Christians offered much prayer on my behalf, I was completely delivered from the demonic spirits. This was a wonderful miracle that my whole family experienced. All of us gave our lives to Jesus and we share this testimony with others.

I am so thankful for the Lord’s grace and mercy. Please pray for many others to turn to Jesus through hearing this testimony and the gospel.

One minority people group that Nathan trained has now started to train others within another minority people group. Please pray for those being trained to apply what they learn and for God’s Kingdom to advance among this people group.

Sister Ethel reports that the receptivity to the Gospel has increased during the Covid-19 lockdown. The simplicity of the training tools and the 3/3 meeting format have been a blessing to others in the midst of restrictions. People are sharing Jesus with their families and lives are being transformed. Hallelujah! Let’s pray for every person in every group to disciple others and be outwardly focused on sharing their testimony and the Gospel with others.

I come from a Hindu family and as such I used to worship many idols. Even though my family are strong worshippers of Hindu gods, I somehow never felt any peace. Thankfully that has now changed.

Recently, a Christian brother came to our village to share the Gospel. I heard that Jesus can give us peace and this really touched my heart. I repented and placed my faith in Jesus alone.

Since that day, I have found the inner peace I always longed for. Please join me in praying for my family as I deeply desire for them to know the Lord Jesus as well.

Heavenly Father, today we come before you on behalf of people throughout Argentina. We cry out for their salvation and request for your Spirit to move in a mighty way among them. Lord, we are thankful for the opportunity that exists through our brother, Dave Miller. We pray for that training opportunity to see no more delays. We pray also for additional open doors and persons of peace. Lord, continue to stir the hearts of the youth. Cause their discontentment to turn into an unquenchable passion to be used mightily to advance your Kingdom. We pray also for unity among the Body of Christ and for our brothers and sisters to rise up and get prepared to be sent into their harvest fields.

Our prayers are requested for Brother Gabriel in Cuba along with many other brothers and sisters. Many people are going hungry. They are not permitted to leave their homes and it is becoming very challenging to obtain food. Gabriel planned last week to take food from his own farm to his neighbors who are hungry.

Gabriel is trusting God through this hard time of pandemic and he knows God is opening up more hearts to the Gospel. He asks that we pray for them and he shares that he is praying for all of us as well.

“Thank you for your prayer support, brothers and sisters. Sister Rachel (my second born daughter) and Wanito got baptized as an act of obedience to God’s command. Brother Armand, one of my Timothies did the baptism. Then we prayed together for our new brother and sister joining God’s family during this corona virus crisis time. Praise the Lord!”
