Andrew & Angie James October 2017 Prayer Requests
-Praise: After having severe allergies for about a year I finally went to an allergy specialist. He ran some tests on me and found that I am allergic to dust mites - apparently they are really bad here. He gave me some medicines and I have been feeling way better since.
-Please continue to pray for the young people at Paso Carrasco and for the weekly Bible study. The young people continue to come, but most have not yet put their faith in Christ.
-We have started another Bible study which we would eventually like to be the foundation for the church plant and have invited several people, but have had a hard time getting people to come. Please pray that God would give us grace to continue developing relationships and that He would open opportunities for gospel ministry.
-Please continue to pray thatGod would contine to strengthen our faith, give us boldness, and give us wisdom to be a blessing to others.
Andrew & Angie James September 2017 Prayer Requests
1. We are thankful for the students who completed the first module of the "Equipping Servants" course Andrew is co-leading with Andres Corrales. Please pray that God would use this study to strengthen their faith and equip them for future ministry. Pray also that they would finish strong, as they juggle personal study with other responsibilities.
2. Please pray for the various Bible studies we are leading - youth at Paso Carrasco, adults, and the women's Bible study Angie is leading. Please pray that God would use his Word to strengthen the Church and transform lives. Pray especially for the young people at Paso Carrasco - though most of them are not yet believers, it appears that God is starting to touch some of their lives. Please pray for their salvation.
3. Please pray for grace to continue building relationships with believers and non-believers.
4. Please pray for our own walk with the Lord - that we would grow in our love and passion for Christ, keep our eyes on Him, and not grow discouraged.
Andrew & Angie James August 2017 Prayer Requests
Here are our prayer requests:
First of all, we want to thank you for praying that God would give us wisdom to know which ministry opportunities to pursue and which ones to turn down. God has increasingly made things clear and we now have a better sense of what we should be doing.
We want to ask that you would continue to pray for the young people at Paso Carrasco. We continue to meet with them weekly, yet we realize we depend fully on the Lord for fruit. Please pray that God would use the preaching of His Word to soften the hearts of these young people and bring them to saving faith in Christ.
A few weeks ago, Angie started a Bible Study with three other women. She is working her way through Ephesians and is excited to see how God is using this time to nurture their passion for the Word. Please pray that God would use this time as an opportunity for mutual encouragement.
Finally, please pray for boldness, love, and compassion in everything we do.
