There are so many praises around the world, so I’d like to take some time this week to point out just a few of the things God is doing in, for, and through WGM missionaries. Thank you to all who pray for and support us!
Kenya: Jim and Martha Ritchie are missionaries serving at Chogoria Hospital in Kenya. They wrote a praise on their blog about some new doctors coming to Chogoria. “Great day yesterday at Samaritan’s Purse/World Medical Mission in Boone, NC. I met with these outstanding physicians who are on their way to Chogoria! Providence Uwimana, Rosebella Agola, and Emily Weimer are all doctors in the WMM Post-Residency program and are all headed to Chogoria within the next six months to join the work for at least two years. I also gave a talk on ethical problems in medical missions to all 19 Post-Residency Program docs and their spouses. What a motivating group!”
American Indian Field: Steve and Debbie Cartwright are thankful for God’s strength as they dove right into youth camp ministry after returning to the field following homeland ministry assignment. They praise the Lord for bringing 99 children to Southwest Indian Ministries Center and are excited for the 11 kids who made first-time commitments to Him. Continue to pray that the seeds of Christ’s love and the truth of His Word will impact young lives on the American Indian Field for years to come.
Argentina: Don and Glenda Moon shared that 11 students finished their initial four-month training at the Cross-Cultural Missionary Training Center in Córdoba. Keep these students in your prayers as they enter the cross-cultural stage of the training. Some are already installed among an indigenous people group in northeast Argentina, a married couple will work with a team of missionaries in northern Brazil, a young man is preparing to serve in Europe among immigrants from northern Africa, and two young men from the training center in Tigre are serving among an unreached group in western Africa. Pray for their safety and God’s guidance and strength as they spread His light around the world.
Ukraine: Although the conflict between Russia and Ukraine continues about 20 minutes from Bill and Oksana Brower’s home, hindering them from hosting summer work teams, God has used this obstacle for His good. This change in their schedule has allowed more time for one-on-one discipleship. Oksana’s girls’ Bible study has continued to meet regularly throughout the summer, providing the girls with the consistent support and love they need. Bill has been able to spend more time with members of their church’s men’s group, building a trust that enables him to speak God’s truth into their lives.
Homeland Ministry Assignment: Titus and Jewel Romdenh have a new addition to their family. Chamnab Harvey Romdenh was born on August 2. Jewel posted on Facebook: “His name means ‘skillful warrior’ and he will be a soldier in the Lord’s army!” Pray that Chamnab continues to stay healthy and that the family can get some much-needed peace and rest in these first few weeks of transition to a bigger family.
