Dear partners in ministry!
First of all, thank you all so much for praying for us. Many of you have shared with us that you pray daily. That is so humbling! Thanks also to all of you who give to us so we can do what we do.
There are a couple things we need you to pray for.
First some background on the first request:
Kabuhayon is the tribal word for “LIFE” and usually means “eternal life” – it’s something the spirits promised them in their old culture but of course were never able to give them.
Now however, they have found “Kabuhayon” through believing the good news of Jesus Christ and His finished work on Calvary.
This coming November, the church wants to invite people from some key villages where the gospel has not yet gone. They want this to be a multi-day event so they can share with them that they have found “Kabuhayon” and challenge them to listen to the teaching from God’s written Word.
They have scheduled the meeting for November because that’s at the end of their traditional rice harvest season and they plan on using that rice to feed everyone who comes. However, there’s a problem:
Please pray for dry weather! They have been busy cutting under brush and trees that, once dried out, will be burned and then readied for planting mountain rice. We have had almost daily rains lately that have kept them from burning off. Please pray for dry weather so they can burn off, plant their rice and have a good harvest. Without this they won’t feel free to have this meeting.
The other thing we need you to please pray for is the seminar coming up on the 9th. People will start to gather from the outreach villages at the end of this week.
Please pray for safety as they travel here. Pray for an encouraging time as they share God’s Word with one another. They usually have around 70-80 people in attendance so it will be a busy time for the village with the influx of visitors.
Okay, that’s all for this time… thank you again for praying for us and the Higaunon.
Secure in Christ’s love,
Lance & Laura
