"So then, just as you received Christ Jesus as Lord, continue to live your lives in him, rooted and built up in him, strengthened in the faith as you were taught, and overflowing with thankfulness."
Colossians 2:6-7, NIV

  PRAISE—UPDATE: Thank you for praying for Kathy Radcliffe’s mother, Garnet Beam, as she battled cancer. Garnet finished her earthly journey July 23, 2017. “We praise the Lord for His perfect timing in our lives and that we could spend some weeks with her during Home Assignment,” writes Kathy. “It was a special blessing to be with family and friends for the funeral service to celebrate her life. We praise the Lord also for the family of God that has encouraged us and upheld us in prayer.” Kathy and Jim Radcliffe are missionaries, serving in Papua New Guinea.

REQUEST: MK’s (missionary kids) are facing changes as they begin classes at universities and schools away from loved ones. Such events affect the students, their friends, and Nazarene missionaries. Please pray that transitions will be smooth for all.
August Missionary Prayer Focus—Join in prayer for:

Kyle and Becky Sukanen, serving in Moldova

  • REQUEST: Becky is reaching out to a group of women each week. Please pray that the women would become part of the Christian community and allow God to make changes in their lives.
  • REQUEST: Kyle is working on a variety of business-as-mission- and sustainability-oriented projects. A big hurdle is the self-confidence of some of the beneficiaries. Please pray that they will grasp opportunities that they would otherwise be fearful to approach.
  • REQUEST: The Sukanens have two sons, Kilchis and Trask. They have progressed well in the last year. Please pray that will continue, that they will develop a love for learning, and that their love for God will grow stronger.

Scott and Emily Armstrong, serving in Dominican Republic

  • REQUEST: The Armstrongs are helping start a church in Pantoja, Dominican Republic. Please pray for the members to have a vision and passion to reach their community.
  • REQUEST: Five new Genesis missionaries are getting ready for training in April 2018. Please pray that, in the coming months, they prepare emotionally, financially, and spiritually for ministry, which will take place in the next two years. Pray for unity amongst their teams and also with the national leaders. Also, pray for five to seven more missionaries to answer the call and who may be sent in April.

Cleon Cadogan, serving in Grenada

  • REQUEST: Please pray for Cleon’s continued protection and health.

Dave and Kim Hane, serving the Asia-Pacific Region

  • REQUEST: The House of Bread and other Nazarene groups have been established in Singapore. Please pray that members will mature in Christ and start additional groups.
  • REQUEST: Please pray for personnel needs on the Asia-Pacific Region to be filled.

Keith and Ruth Ann Morris, serving in Ecuador

  • REQUEST: Pray for Keith and Ruth Ann’s health and strength.

Dee Sudnick, serving in the Philippines

  • PRAISE: Dee is thankful for increased gym space at Faith Academy in the Philippines and that a new gym floor is being installed. Please pray that the floor will be completed quickly, as volleyball practices have started.
  • PRAISE: Dee reports that prayers for repairs to the school and the need for teachers are being answered. Please pray for additional vacancies to be filled.
    • A number of MK’s are new to Faith Academy and adjusting to life at the school and in the Philippines. Pray that their faith is strengthened during this change, for new friends, and for their families.
    • Pray for those adjusting to another culture after leaving the Philippines.
    • Pray for MK’s returning from their home countries to the Philippines. It is difficult to know a place, call it home, and see changes that take place during an absence. Pray for restored and new friendships and for MK’s to transition back to life where they are.
Family of Laurel Bucher
  REQUEST: Laurel Bucher of Arlington, Texas, passed away August 14, 2017. She was the mother of missionary Dave Bucher. Laurel was “joyful, enthusiastic, and a lover of all things in nature.” There will be a memorial service August 19 at Dallas First Church of the Nazarene in Texas. Dave and Helen Ann Bucher serve as missionaries to Saipan and had several opportunities to visit Laurel over the summer.
Thank you for praying.

"The time of business does not differ with me from the time of prayer; and in the noise and clatter of my kitchen…I possess God in as great tranquility as if I were on my knees."
—Brother Lawrence (1614–1691), French lay monk and writer
