Phyllis Perkins Howard
  Last week, via the Prayer Mobilization Line’s Facebook page, we prayed for Phyllis Perkins Howard who underwent gall bladder surgery. The surgery was complicated but successful and she is recovering. Thank you, Lord! Please continue to pray for Phyllis' complete recovery. She is a former missionary to Japan, former Global NMI Director, and former professor at Nazarene Bible College.
Ishaq and Maryam*
  Ishaq and Maryam serve God and the Church of the Nazarene in a Middle East country. Being Christians, they live as the minority in a place where another faith is the majority. Because of this, they could have easily sought asylum in another country. Yet, they stayed where chaos and civil war rages because God asked them to.
   Ishaq and Maryam’s story is one of persecution laced with miracles, and because they stayed in their homeland, they’ve been able to share the Gospel with family and friends. One brother has accepted Christ and other family members are open to hearing more about Ishaq and Maryam’s God.
   Ishaq and Maryam’s story echoes those of other Nazarenes who stay in areas where being a Christian is dangerous. Pray for all believers who risk their lives to share the Good News of the Gospel.

June Missionary Prayer Focus

Please pray for these requests from missionaries who are part of the June Prayer Focus:

Andrew and Gina Pottenger, serving on the Eurasia Region

  • Pray that God would continue to call, equip, and send workers into the exciting and rewarding harvest fields of media ministry throughout our global church family, to help expand the work and carry the load.
  • Pray for a new volunteer planning to come serve in video communication this fall in Eurasia, that God would equip and prepare her and allow her to raise the necessary funds.
  • Pray for Andrew as he completes his PhD, so that he can fulfill his calling to serve in equipping and preparing ministers and church leaders through higher education.
  • Pray for Gina to have greater effectiveness and grow personally in her ministry as communication coordinator for Eurasia Region, and editor for Engage magazine.

Emman and Fillaree "Jade" Chapman, serving in Australia

  • Pray that our next visa application will be approved, allowing us to stay in Australia.
  • Pray for Emman to have peace as he balances full-time school (required by current visa), family, and the mission.
  • Pray for Jade as she balances homeschooling the kids, family, and her ministry.
  • Pray for the Chapman's children— Caleb (10) and Savanna Zoe (8) as they continue to grow and find themselves and their purpose in God.
  • We are hoping for open doors to growth for Jade's ministry as a birth doula, childbirth educator, and lactation consultant/counselor. It is a passion of hers and one that God uses to love and embrace others.
Terry Ketchum
  Pray for former missionary Terry Ketchum who underwent surgery on June 16th to remove a large mass on the spine and to stabilize that area of the spine. Terry and his wife, Kathy, served for 25 years on the Caribbean Region in the countries of Haiti and Martinique. Terry is also the brother of former Global NMI Director Daniel Ketchum.
Mrs. Daniel Vathani
  Please pray for Mrs.Daniel Vathani, wife of Sri Lanka District Superintendent Rev. V.K. Daniel, who has been admitted to the hospital. For the past two weeks she has been seriously ill. Ask for God's full healing of her body, and peace and comfort for her and her family as doctors treat her.
Thank you for praying.

God blesses those who hunger and thirst for justice, for they will be satisfied.

— Jesus, as quoted in Matthew 5:6 (NLT)
