Please pray for: safety for our missionaries who are serving in areas where there is political unrest or excessive violence; wisdom to give good advice and counsel to the men with whom I have the privilege to mentor; good health in order to continue serving; more missionaries, pastors, and leaders; a renewed vision for church planting in our national congregations.

Praise God for: new missionaries are being sent by several national associations to new nations in Latin America; young men being trained and sent as missionaries in their own countries; churches are planting churches!; growing maturity among our churches and national associations, manifested by their assuming more responsibility for their own churches and missions.
