Andrew & Angie James October 2018 Prayer Requests
*We are really thankful that the "Christianity Explored" conference in September went really well - thanks for your prayers! Please pray that God would continue to use what the participants learned to mobilize them in evangelism and give them a burden for the lost.
*This month we will be holding a leadership conference with ESI (Equipping Servants) students - Please pray for us as we prepare for the event and that the training itself would be beneficial to the students.
*We continue to move in the direction of church planting (hopefully launching next year). Please pray that God would continue to guide our steps and give a sense of unity as we move along.
*We are now moving into Spring (in the southern hemisphere) where flowers blossom and allergies break out. Zack just recently had a really bad asthma attack. Please pray for him, and the rest of the family, and for our health.
Andrew & Angie James May 2018 Prayer Requests
*Praise: after a pair of weeks where no one came to our Thursday Bible studies, we suddenly had a number of new visitors (both believers and non-believers). Please pray that God would use these studies to strengthen believers and to save unbelievers.
*Pray: After having met for over a year with the young people at Paso Carrasco (a poor neighborhood in Montevideo), some of them confessed that they didn't really believe that the Bible is God's Word - and therefore don't believe anything we're teaching them. Please pray that God would give us wisdom to know how to address their questions, and that He would touch their hearts. Please pray also that God would give us perseverance to continue even when the "fruit" doesn't come as quickly as we would like.
*Pray: Please pray that we would keep our priorities straight - that we would make sure not neglect our time with the Lord or our family in the business of life.
Andrew & Angie James April 2018 Prayer Requests
* ESI has officially started out the year in Uruguay. All in all, there are now about 60 people going through the program (in Uruguay). Please pray that God would use this training to raise up a generation of church leaders who love the Lord and are well grounded in His Word.
* I'll be traveling to Chile on April 11th to assist with the ESI training they will be holding there. Please pray for safe travels and that God would give us wisdom to know if we should implement a similar ESI facilitator training in Uruguay.
* Please continue to pray for the Bible studies we are involved with - that God would continue to bring non-believers and that He would give us boldness and grace to faithfully proclaim the gospel.
