Rejoice with members of TEAM NAPLES (WESTERN MEDITERRANEAN CLUSTER) that they have been very warmly welcomed back to Naples (Italy) after a six-month stateside assignment. They request that we lift up the economic difficulties there. While they were gone, quite a few stores have closed – some that have been around for over a century. Ask that as Neapolitans are anxious about the economy that they will discover the perfect peace found only in the Son.
More Prayer Requests
Pray for a team of 20 from Mississippi, who will work in the Kharkov Region (Ukraine) from May 18-24. While part of the team will be involved in construction in one church for the week, the remaining members will provide medical and VBS outreach in three different cities. Intercede for those who will have the opportunity to respond to the love of Christ as shared through the hands and hearts of this team, and for the Ukrainian believers, who will work alongside them in each community. Pray for safety for the construction crew. Intercede that the hearts and minds of the believers in each of these churches will be uplifted and that they will continue the work of reaching out to those who are not yet followers of Jesus in their cities.
A couple working with the DIASPORA CLUSTER in ITALY share, “Nine of the top 22 Unreached, Unengaged People Groups (UUPGs) in the European Affinity are related to Italy or Italians. For this reason, we just relocated to Milan, Italy. Please pray for the movement of the Spirit among these UUPG’s and for US churches that might possibly embrace them and begin churches among them. Also lift us up as we build relationships in our neighborhood, as well as across Italian borders in Switzerland, France and Germany. Pray that our language skills will be sharpened quickly and that we will sense and obey God’s leadership in our new setting.”
A member of the HOPE FOR SAXONY TEAM (GERMANIC CLUSTER) requests intercession for a T4T (Training for Trainers) Group of two young college guys, who meet on Thursdays. Pray that they will be faithful and share Christ’s story with their friends.
