Church Planting in Thailand
  Two churches have been meeting to focus on planting new churches within the city of Bangkok, Thailand, a city of more than nine million people. Pray for the Lord’s leading and provision in all areas of the process. Click here to read more of the story and ways to pray.
  “I received a nice, long, friendly email from the LINKS person at one of our churches in Colorado. She's a 72-year-old woman who has a card-writing ministry. It was nice!” These are the words of a missionary serving on the Eurasia Region and conveys beautifully the LINKS ministry that connects the local church with missionaries. Pray for your church’s LINKS missionaries today. If you don’t know who your new LINKS are, ask your pastor, NMI president, or district LINKS coordinator. The reciprocal ministry that takes place through LINKS is a blessing to missionaries and churches alike, and often, life-long friendships begin.
Missionary Prayer Focus

Please pray for the following requests sent in from missionaries who are part of the August prayer focus:

Scot and Jill Riggins, serving in the Philippines

  • We have felt confident in God's leading as Scot accepted the new Regional Finance Coordinator position for the Asia-Pacific Region. We do request prayer for wisdom in his new role, for wisdom through the transition phase as he helps find and train the new Philippine Field Office treasurer, and as he steps into the new role. 
  • We always appreciate prayers for us as parents as we seek to disciple each of our children. This can feel like such an overwhelming responsibility, but we know that God has equipped us with everything we need for the "job" (2 Peter 1:3). Aden and Wiley are both attending Faith Academy and doing very well there - what a wonderful blessing to have this opportunity! We pray especially for the friendships they are developing, that they would be positive influences on those around them and continue to grow in their relationships with the Lord. Noah and Emma are at home, and we pray for their continued healthy development (spiritually, emotionally, mentally, physically) as they learn and grow each day.  
  • We ask for prayer in continued cultural adaptation.  We've been here just over a year, and there is still so much more to learn!!  We pray for God's grace and strength as we continue to learn more about the people around us and better understand the place where we are serving.  We want to be effective instruments that God can use, and healthy cultural adaptation will make us more effective.
  • Editor’s note: Scot and Jill welcomed Audrey Sue Riggins to their family on September 13. Thank you for your prayers for Jill over several weeks as she awaited Audrey’s birth. We give praise to God for that all went well.

Family of Yolanda de Quiroz
  Yolanda de Quiroz passed away on September 26 after a long battle with cancer. Yolanda and her husband, Eduardo, pastored the Iglesia de la Floresta in Guyaaquil, Ecuador. Pray for Eduardo, the family, and congregation as they mourn Yolanda’s passing. She served the Lord faithfully and now rests in His presence.
Thank you for praying.
"Teach us, O Lord, the disciplines of patience,
for to wait is often harder than to work."

—Peter Marshall (1902-1949), pastor and chaplain of U.S. Senate
