PRAISES:
San Francisco del Norte Church
  The San Francisco del Norte Church in Quito, Ecuador, celebrated their 15-year anniversary recently with special music, dramas, preaching, and an anniversary cake. This was the first organized church out of the JESUS Film Harvest Partners ministry in all of South America.

Field Strategy Coordinator Dwight Rich was the guest speaker and shared the story of how Rodrigo Olmedo, pastor of the San Francisco de Norte Church, became a leader of the JESUS Film Harvest Partners ministry in Quito as a new convert. 

The church began with 56 people who were converted in the first JESUS film showing in that neighborhood, more than 15 years ago. A number of the founding members were present at the anniversary celebration. Pastor Rodrigo* is full of energy and continues to direct the national JESUS Film Harvest Partners Ministry. More than 65 churches have been organized in Quito with the wonderful evangelistic tool of the JESUS film.

*See prayer request for Pastor Olmedo’s daughter below in the Health-Related area.

GLOBAL MINISTRY REQUESTS
Day of Prayer and Fasting for Ebola Crisis
  On Wednesday, October 22 (or any other day you choose), please join our brothers and sisters at the Africa Regional Office in a day of prayer and fasting for those suffering because of the tragedies surrounding the Ebola virus.

Africa Regional Director Filimao Chambo says, "Our hearts are broken as we hear the reports of fellow Nazarenes, fellow Christians, and fellow human beings suffering in several countries but especially in Sierra Leone, Guinea and Liberia. The Ebola virus has been deadly to most who contract it which has produced a wake of fear and suffering."

"While we at the regional office and you may be thousands of kilometers away from those who are suffering, we want to intercede to the Lord on their behalf. Although the distance is far, we know the same God that hears our prayers is walking among those suffering with infection or the loss of family and friends. It is He who can ultimately comfort and save. May the Lord let the sacrifices being made on behalf of those who are suffering bring Him glory and turn hopeless eyes to Him."
Brazil CDC
  In late September, a Nazarene Child Development Center (CDC) in Brazil was robbed. The area is known for its violence and robbers are usually not merciful with people. So, it was fortunate that no one was in the center at the time thieves entered. They stole computers, on with children's information, and a brand new television. Pray for the staff of this CDC as they continue serving the community and ministering to more than 25 children who live daily in poverty.
Lebanon School
  "My family came to Lebanon so we would not die in Syria," said 12-year old Sonya. Today Sonya and hundreds of other children have found safety and a new start at a Nazarene school in Beirut. Pray for all Syrian refugees, that as they flee the violence in their homeland, that they will find peace and everlasting life in Christ. Read more about Sonya and others in the NCN News article.
Asia-Pacific Meetings
  The Asia-Pacific Regional Leadership team and the Regional Advisory Council have been meeting last week and this week in South Korea. Pray the leaders will clearly sense God’s leading as they consider mission critical issues on the Asia-Pacific region.

BEREAVEMENT
Family of Joseph Yambayamba
  Rev. Wilfred Yambayamba, superintendent of the Copperbelt District in Zambia wrote, "Kindly pray for my family in the loss of our third born son, Joseph. Joseph was 24-years-old when he died on September 9; burial was on September 11." Lord, be close to the Yambayamba family as they grieve the loss of Joseph. May each one feel your comfort and presence.
Thank you for praying.
"A man prayed and at first he thought prayer lies in talking. But he became more and more quiet until in the end he realized prayer is listening."
