The Latest Prayer Items

  • September consultant sessions

    Pray for the consultant checking* sessions planned for September: John and Ariana Glennon will be checking about 1000 verses from Exodus to 1 Kings for Kakabai, Topura, Wedau, Kanasi, Anuki, and Iamalele. Also, Al Boush will check John 11-21 and James to Jude for the Migabac. The following languages need a consultant to check the Scripture that they have ready: Awad Bing, Keapara, Amam, Sibe, Onobasulu, Bau, Mekeo, Meramera and Mouwase.

    Consultant check: A consultant thoroughly goes over the translation with the team, checking for accuracy, clarity and naturalness, and looking for omissions, extraneous thoughts or possible misconceptions.

  • Writer's workshop

    Pray for the pre-translation Writer's Workshop taking place in early September in the town of Sasereme as a part of the Tributaries Multi-Language Initiative. Participants from six language communities may be attending (Dibiyaso, Doso, Mubami, Foia-Foia, Hoia-Hoia and Hoya Hoya). Pray for Pastor Gadila Inali, the church leader at Sasereme who is hosting the workshop. And pray for Karan Allen and Bonnie Mackenzie as they facilitate the course.

  • Tairora Audibible celebration

    The Tairora Audibible is being celebrated at the Ukarumpa Training Centre during the first week of September. Pray that the Tairora people will receive the Scriptures with joy and use them to draw closer to God. Also pray that Tairora speakers will purchase copies of the printed Bible and Tairora dictionary.

  • Third Bible Storytelling workshop

    The third Oral Bible Storytelling (OBS) workshop for the second cluster of languages of the Sepik Partnership and Engagement Strategy (SPES) begins the first of September. Pray for the six language teams participating in this workshop (Mangamba, Wam, Yambes, Juwar, Urimo and Bungain). Pray that the participants will be eager to learn and tell the six new stories related to Christmas.

  • Bible storying staff needed

    Praise God for the recently published survey report which provides a preliminary description of the linguistic situation of four language communities. Research suggests that two story projects are needed, but there are very few known believers among these groups. Praise God that there is one brother from the first group who is working on Bible stories in his language. Pray that he would have boldness to share and test the newly drafted stories. Pray also that God would raise up people from the three other communities to begin storying in the area north of the first project.

  • Further language development

    Pray for the meeting between a local cultural organization and language project staff and partners in one language area. This will be in important meeting to find out what kind of language development activities this community want to be involved in. A New Testament and a few books are available in this language but very few people know how to read them. Pray that a literacy project can be started in the next year.

  • Bible story set almost complete

    Pray for the continuing Bible story work for one language community. Twelve stories were reviewed by church leaders in March. The team is now doing some more testing and making some edits based on input from the leaders. The work has been slow. Pray for encouragement for the team and that the project managers can find ways to speed up the work so that the short set can be completed by the end of September.

  • Literacy and Bible story project

    The literacy survey for one language community has been completed. Please pray for the planning process for the literacy project and the development of a local literacy team. Pray for the continuing Bible story work for this language. The testing has been going well and many people in the village who were not open to the Gospel before are open to hearing stories from God's Word. Also, pray for the church review and the final editing.

  • New Bible Story crafter needed

    Pray for the Bible story project team for one language. The main storyteller is not a Christian and she is leaving the country. This will make it difficult to continue to edit the stories and craft more stories. Please pray that God would provide additional people to work with the team.

  • New Testament and Children's Bible

    Pray continued anointing by the Holy Spirit to finish the New Testament by the end of 2014. Final consistency checking and revision is taking place in the final months of the year. Also, pray for the team to stand strong in the midst of spiritual attack. Pray for the completion of the Children's Bible, which is also near completion and should be finished sometime in 2014. Ask that God would use this people group to reach out to the related people groups around the area. Pray for distribution channels to be opened for our New Testament. Thank the Lord for new end users willing to do this who live in a neighboring country.
