This week's praise reports and prayer requests from Nazarene Missions International, JESUS Film Harvest Partners, and NCN News include:PRAISES
JESUS Film - Honduras
"I had a hard time believing in Christ," said Xiomara in Honduras. "I
saw bad testimonies in the lives of others. The JESUS Film helped to
change my heart. When I saw the life of Christ, I accepted Him as my
Savior. I know He is my Lord!"
JESUS Film - India
"Many people had problems," said a team member in India. "Following
the JESUS Film showing, we invited people to come forward for prayer.
Over 150 people were there and many came to share their problems with
us. We prayed with tears for the people to have hope and a new life in
JESUS Film - Philippines
"The Lord favors those who seek salvation," said a team member in the
Philippines. "We experienced some resistance from another religious
group in the area where we where showing the JESUS Film. Praise God, He
blessed our work. Several are new believers in Christ and are part of a
regular fellowship group."Neal Estey
We prayed in 2007 for Neal Estey as he battled cancer. Recently our
office received this report about Neal's health: "Neal is doing so well
that the doctors use his case as an example in their lectures of how
chemo and the unexpected can happen. The medical team is well aware that
prayer and faith have been a huge part of healing for Neal." Praise the
Lord for the witness of faith and hope that has been displayed
throughout Neal's treatments and for his continued healing. He is the
son of former missionaries John and Sandra Estey, who served in South
Africa and Swaziland. (NMI)PRAYER REQUESTS
Thailand - UPDATE
Please continue to pray that peace and calm might be restored in Bangkok and other areas of Thailand that are experiencing unrest. All of our mission personnel in the country are safe. There have been no reports of injury to any of our Thai Nazarenes, and no report of damage to any of our church facilities. Nazarene security personnel on the field and region are closely following the situation. The events have not taken God by surprise. Pray that Christians will be ministers of hope, peace, and forgiveness in the midst of unrest.
Retired missionary Dorothy Evans underwent neck surgery on May 17. She
came through the surgery well and is at home. Pray for her complete
recovery. Dorothy served in the Philippines and Swaziland.
