Cambodia Outreach (Director, Amy Kolb): Please pray for The Chapel team that is in Cambodia until March 3. Pray for soft hearts for the team as they return home with a bigger picture of what Jesus is doing in our world. Pray for strengthened connections with Chapel sponsors to their kids and staff in Cambodia. Please pray for the team forming to go to Cambodia June 5-19.

Vietnam Outreach: Please pray that God would continue to strengthen the church planters of 3 new Love Homes we have helped support to be established at the end of November 2017. God is moving our local church partner to begin another Love Home this month in the province of Thai Nguyen, North Vietnam. This will be the 5th Love Home we will establish in a little over two years. Pray that God would soften the hearts of the “Thai” tribal people who are difficult to reach and hard to the Gospel of Christ.

Yucatán Outreach (Director, Todd Lewis): Praise the Lord for the multiple short term trips that took place in February. Pray that God would continue to use Mission House to bring the hope and love of Christ to the Mayan people in Yucatan, Mexico. Mission House is in the initial stage of purchasing land in the village of Tiholop. Pray for the process so the area can eventually be used for ministry.


International Outreach (Director, Stephen Morris): Pray for the continued special emphasis discussions taking place during Friday Night Dinners. Praise the Lord for the consistent core of students that continue to come and participate in discussions about the Bible and other important topics. Pray that relationships with the students would continue to grow and deepen as the semester goes on.

Nancy Ware – Refugees in North Akron: Please pray for Nancy as she continues her ministry in the Akron area to Refugee children and their families. Ask God to provide teachers and helpers for the refugee summer school program. Pray for God to move in the hearts of Aye, Paw, Eh, Lah, and Saw (students I work with). Pray that God will draw them to Christ.

India Outreach (Director, Doug Lauer): Pray for all the pastors, their families and churches in our designated state who minister despite increased persecution of His church there. Pray for God’s supernatural anointing of the recently concluded pastors’ seminar. Pray that all participants were tremendously encouraged by this conference experience and will be used by God in powerful ways to build His Kingdom there. Pray that God will bless and grow the Worship Music Project that was begun during this last trip and grow it exponentially to share His Holy Word among the largest tribal group in our state and beyond. Pray that we will be able to medically help the pastor who was savagely attacked almost two years ago. All honor, praise and glory to our God!


Dan and Lucia Brubaker – Serving in Africa with Wycliffe: Please pray for the continued translation work being done in their country as work is moving forward in translating the Bible and the Jesus Film into local dialects. Pray for the Brubakers as they arrive home March 16 for vacation time. Pray for safe travel, recovery from jetlag, and wonderful time with family, friends, and supporters.

G and R – Serving in Israel: Pray for them as they serve as directors at two schools in their area. Pray for them as they serve in local preaching and teaching ministries. 

Donna Schaber – Serving with Christar: Pray for Donna as she approaches her retirement date of March 31. During her transition, she will travel to the Phillippines to work with the teams and local believers. From February 26-March 23, she will also begin radiation treatment for low grade breast cancer. Pray for wisdom and discipline while making decisions during this transition time.


Chapel Urban Outreach (Director, Lisa Marshall): Pray for the 2 Good News Clubs at Leggett that many children would respond to the gospel. Pray for the planning of our summer day camp Leggett called Camp Learn-A-Lot. We are looking for people to serve one week out of four this summer. Pray also for the need of more volunteers to cover all three of the schools we have been partnering with: Leggett, Glover and McEbright.

Mozambique Outreach (Director, Michael Boso): Please pray that God would empower Pastor Benedito who is pastoring the church plant in the village of Macalawane.

A local witchdoctor has received Jesus Christ and will be baptized in April. She has been attending the Macalawane church. Pray for guidance for Michael as he will be serving in Mozambique during the month of March.
