  • Shift in focus

    Workers In one West Asian language community are preparing to move from a Language Development focus to a Bible Translation focus later this year. Ask the Lord to prepare the way and to create a hunger and openness for God’s Word in the local community. May God lead this transition in His way and timing.

  • More Assyrian Scripture online

    Besides the New Testament, Psalms and Proverbs, the book of Genesis is now available in Assyrian on Scripture Earth.

  • Survey needed

    A language assessment team is forming to begin survey in the northern Caucasus. Pray for discernment to see where God is leading and how He is revealing Himself to these people groups. Pray that the right people for the team will be selected. Ask God to help the churches in southern Russia to catch the vision to reach out to minority groups in this area. As the teams go out, pray they will be led to helpful people in the language communities.

  • Prayer foundation

    Many language communities in the Caucasus have no Scripture in their language or Bible translation in process. More prayer is needed for these communities. Ask God to open doors for work to begin, to prepare the hearts of the people and to motivate more workers to serve. Ask for guidance in how to pray and for good ways to involve more people in prayer for these groups.

  • Preparing Scripture for publication

    Three Bibles, a New Testament and a number of Scripture portions are currently in the publication process with Moscow-based partner, Institute for Bible Translation (IBT). Please pray for the IBT staff, to have keen eyes for detail and accuracy as they do the typesetting. Pray for correct proofs and for arrangements for the printing of the books. Pray that God will prepare the hearts of the language communities to receive these Scriptures with joy.

  • New local printing press

    Partners have requested our prayers for a recently opened printing press. The Lord has provided a building, the personnel and the finances. Churches and the Bible schools in this country are growing and have a great need for Bibles and other written material. Pray for God’s blessing and protection on this printing operation. Ask God to use these materials to strengthen and grow His church.

  • Balancing responsibilities and managing time

    One couple asks for prayer to balance parenthood, advanced studies, assignment responsibilities and preparations for home leave. Another colleague asks for prayer to balance his teaching at university, to plan for an upcoming workshop and to make progress on a course he’s developing. Many language and support staff manage multiple roles and responsibilities and live cross-culturally. They have more to do than time to do it. Ask God to give the wisdom needed to balance the work, so the workers don’t get overwhelmed or exhausted.

  • Media Consultation

    The Eurasia Media & Distribution Consultation will be held in the Netherlands, April 13-16. Over 325 people from 126 organizations have registered. Pray for the Lord's blessing and favor as participants apply for visas to travel to the Netherlands from their homes in Europe, Asia and Africa. Pray that all registered participants will be able to attend. There will likely be more registrants than room at the venue. Pray for wisdom for the administrative team in how and where to house the overflow.
