PRAISES:
JESUS Film Praise from Ecuador
  "A few months ago, the evangelism team began to hold JESUS Film showings in a particular village. By means of these projections, the new mission began to grow. They began to rent a small place for them to meet, and in every showing new people were converted and follow-ups began. The group grew in every way spiritually, numerically, and doctrinally. Finally, a new church was organized with its own pastor, local church board, respective ministries, and an average of 60 people every week. Glory to God!"  Click here to keep up with what God is doing through JESUS Film Harvest Partners.
PRAY FOR:
GLOBAL MINISTRY REQUESTS
34 Churches Submerged
  Seasonal floods have ravaged parts of Pakistan, India, Nepal, and Bangladesh in recent weeks. The Bangladesh District Superintendent, Nathan, said, “Vast areas of Naogaon and the surrounding area are under water. These areas do not normally experience the seasonal flooding because they are on higher ground—they are not ready for it. Now 34 of our churches are dumped under water! Together with multitudes of people, thousands of Nazarenes and their pastors have lost all they have.” Please pray for all people who are affected by the flooding.

Sri Lanka School Supplies

Extreme Nazarene
 

Extreme Nazarene Missions is mobilizing 80 pairs of "40/40 Church Planter Missionaries" (each 40/40 pair is made up of one South American and one North American), and hundreds of workers supporting the 40/40 pairs to plant 16 churches in 16 major metropolitan cities of South America. The following are ways you can pray for everyone involved in Extreme Nazarene:

  • Last weekend we had 40/40 interviews in Pilar, Argentina. Pray that from these interviews, Extreme will be able to complete the team for the Córdoba, Argentina church plant.
  • Pray for the Argentine 40/40s who were already selected for the Córdoba team as they raise funds and get ready to start their missionary training in January 2015.
  • Pray that God would move in the hearts of Chilean young people to call them to be 40/40 Church Planters in Antofagasta, Chile.
  • Extreme currently has a short-term volunteer team from the U.S. in Ambato, Ecuador, helping with the construction of their new church building. Pray for the team.
  • Pray for continued growth of the church plant in Ibarra, Ecuador, as the 40/40 Church Planters continue discipling and raising up new church leaders.
