Darin and Laura Arnott are missionaries on the American Indian Field. Read their story about a business owner God is using to share His gospel message with Native Americans. Please also pray for Mondo as he seeks God’s wisdom in expanding his ministry.

“Mondo is the owner of Mondo’s Food Spot, located in Sells AZ, on the Tohono O’odham Reservation. He is truly a bright spot in our lives and we enjoy our times spent with him on our frequent trips to Sells. We travel to Sells once or twice a month. While there, Laura visits a young lady in the jail and Darin follows up with a teen boy we met at summer camp. It seems we always end up at the grocery store! This last time we ran into a couple people we know. What a blessing to see familiar faces smiling back at us!

“We are so impressed by Mondo’s story. He faithfully serves his community of Sells through food service. When people come in for a bite of local Tohono O’odham flavor, they also receive a slice of God’s Word. Mondo freely shares the Gospel and his testimony of redemption! Mondo is also in the process of implementing some modern updates to his business, specifically a new roof, new structural support and electricity. We are excited to walk with Mondo and see how God continues to work in and through his life.”

WGM encourages you to spread the gospel however you can at your workplace. Missions work goes beyond the title of “missionary.” We are all called, and WGM can help you spread the good news (www.wgm.org/worldgo) and connect with the Arnotts (Arnotts’ Facebook or Arnotts’ missionary page).

A.C.T.S.

mis130425_01Emily Henry is a missionary serving in children’s and youth ministries on the American Indian Field. In her latest blog, Emily talks about how prayer can sometimes be intimidating for youth and shares what she’s doing to remedy that fear.

“Our teen group this week learned about a practical and easy approach to prayer.  My focus was to make prayer a natural behavior for them.  I believe teens tend to think of prayer as something intimidating and complicated whereas in fact it’s just like talking to a friend.  A friends who’s trustworthy, loyal, loving and unchanging.  So I brought in a worksheet that will hopefully help them in their prayer time.  It focuses on thanking God, asking for prayer for others, things they need to work on, their own requests and answers to their prayers or how God has helped them that day.  I also had them write down the A.C.T.S. format to help them have a better outline for their prayer time:

“Adoration is the act of praising God.

“Confession is the act of telling God the sins that we are struggling with.

“Thanksgiving is giving Him thanks for all of the gifts that we have received.

“Supplication is when we come to Him with our wants and our needs and our requests for others.

“The kids were really open to this; taking notes and asking questions.  I’m so excited to see this group grow!”

Will you join in practicing this A.C.T.S. prayer technique while you pray for these teens? May they experience God’s presence and a new sense of joy and connection through these prayer practices.

Brady and Alicia Searl‘s Facebook post from Uganda: “Preparing to pass out ‘mommy hospital kits’ to expectant mothers who attend the Jungo Omulise service. The kits help mothers deliver their babies with some of the necessary items that the hospitals do not provide. These kits allow the new babies to have a cleaner, safer environment during their first hours of life. #searlsinuganda”

Robyn Moore Facebook post from Kenya, “This has been a busy and great weekend. Yesterday we celebrated my 35 years in Kenya with a host of friends helping me host over 150 children at my church here in Nairobi for a party. Face painting, nails polished, “football” and other fun. Six different ministries were represented that Least of These has a part in caring for them. I was so very blessed at the testimonies how God has used me to show His love and care for children. Acrobats, singers and dancers shared their love to me. The time ended with cake then gifts for every child, and I told them the gifts were from many of you from around the world. Today I was able to share my testimony of God’s faithfulness in my life for 35 + year in Kenya at my home church, Good Shepherd AGC. To God be the glory, great things He has done!”

This week, send us a photo of you participating in missions work in your community. We want to see how you are making an impact. Please leave details about the specific ministry, and we’ll pray specifically for your cause. Get involved, make a difference, and give God the glory, because we are all called to be missionaries wherever we are.
