  • Kep & Debbie September 2021 Update

    Hello from Bolivia!

    A short note to thank you for praying for us, and to mention a few specific prayer requests this month:

     

    * For Kep’s trip to Cairo, Marrakech, and Dakar on September 17 for three weeks -- first to attend a conference (with 400-500 Egyptian young people who are interested in missions); then to lead a four-day training retreat. This retreat will be for 15 leaders of church planting training centers across North Africa. Please pray that our time together will deepen their commitment to Jesus and to be Biblical friends–they work in areas that are difficult for the gospel! Also that the time together will encourage each one to make a life-long commitment to study God’s Word, to know it, and to teach it–so they will live the transformation of the gospel by growing in Jesus. After the training retreat, I will visit training centers in various countries.

     

    * For Debbie as she continues to build the women’s ministry in our church in La Paz. Several of her key leaders have left La Paz or Bolivia due to family concerns in other places. Pray as they plan their important annual women’s retreat in the month of October.

  • Kep & Debbie September 2021 Prayer Requests

    * Pray for Kep as he spends September 18-26 in Cairo with the ministry training center leaders, and part of that time leading a Facilitators Training Retreat. After this, he will spend 2 weeks visiting students in Morocco and Senegal who are preparing to plant churches in North Africa. Pray that God will use the time Kep spends there to encourage students and leaders to make a commitment to study God’s Word every day to learn it, to live it, and to teach it faithfully (2 Timothy 4:1-5).

     

    * Pray for the 1,740 ESI (Equipping Servants –Disciples Making Disciples) participants in 162 groups meeting in 14 countries. Pray that these men and women will grow in their love for God and commitment to honor Christ by being true to His Scriptures with Jesus and His Gospel at the center.

     

    * Pray for our church in Bolivia that we will be faithful sharing Christ with people around us, and that the Lord will bring much fruit that remains.
