Tepehuan New Testament Dedication

Matt and Star Arnold minister at the Missionary Training Center in Camdenton, MO. “This Thanksgiving was extremely special for the Arnold family and the [Tepehuan] team. After more than 30 years of incredible diligence, tenacity and detailed work, Kevin Case presented to the Tepehuan the New Testament! November 24th [was] the day. We are super excited! All the New Testaments have been delivered to [the town]. We are so thankful for the huge team to see this accomplished! The New Testaments arrived in El Paso, Texas, where a missionary picked them up and stored them. Then, a few boxes at a time, the New Testaments found their way to Chihuahua, Mexico, in the trunks of missionaries traveling back and forth between Chihuahua and El Paso. They were stored in the mission office. Then in the last few weeks, whenever the pilots made a trip to [the town], they loaded what they could and helped the New Testaments make the final leg of the journey. I am emotionally overwhelmed when I think of the loving hands of the many who have helped deliver the New Testaments to the Tepehuan. Pray that the Tepehuan who have believed will be overwhelmed to see the love that so many have for them.” Continue helping with other translations.

Tuesday
Literacy Classes

Matthew and Debi Zook minister to the Lolo people of Mozambique. “Thirteen students passed their fifth and final test. We held a celebration, and they received their literacy certificates and Bibles. This was particularly special to us because 10 of the 13 had no reading ability whatsoever before entering the classes. They were very appreciative of the classes, saying they never thought they would have the opportunity to learn to read. Now, one year later, they can read their Bibles. We are still meeting once a week in a class to do sword drills, learn the order of the books of the Bible, read Scripture passages and answer questions based on the passages. There are also another 14 students who are still in classes at this time. They are doing well, and some have begun to read Bible portions, although they are not yet finished with the literacy course. They should finish their classes sometime next year. Pray that the students will continue to read God’s Word and grow in faith in Christ.”

Wednesday
Lesson Evaluation Update

Bart and Emily Allen minister to the Amdu people of Papua New Guinea. “Thank you so much for praying for our team during our recent Bible lesson evaluation. Our consultants arrived safely, and we got right to work. It was very good to see what parts were clear and what parts weren’t coming across like we thought they would. [They] were able to observe the listeners’ reactions and ask questions in the trade language to gauge understanding. … One of the main things … was that our lessons need to be much more concise and clearer. That means that we are going back to the drawing board to rework the Bible lessons that were already ‘done,’ and we have been revising the plans for all the rest of the lessons that have yet to be written. ... Our goal now is to begin teaching sometime in the first half of next year.” Read more.

Thursday
Pray for our Existing Works

Summer Zimmer is ministering in Papua New Guinea. God has given her a passion to see churches engage in the Great Commission by sending and supporting missionaries well. She plays a vital role in seeing that happen by facilitating communication between missionaries and their sending churches and supporters. Please pray for our ministry locations that are in need of more co-workers. Pray for more laborers to fill in these gaps! Watch a video about Existing Works.

Friday
First Time Hearing the Truth of Christmas

Brian and Arlita Burnham minister with Ethnos360 Aviation in Papua New Guinea. “The Kaje had their first Christmas recently! They heard for the first time about the birth of Christ. In a few weeks, they will hear that Christ died to be their Savior from sin. How exciting that you and I get to be a part of what God is doing among the Kaje through our prayers for them and for the three missionary families (Goheens, Myers, and Meyers) sharing this good news with them. [Recently], they heard that Jesus did not ‘come to call those who think they are righteous, but those who know they are sinners’ (Mark 2:17). ‘This is sweet music to the ears of the Kaje who have humbled themselves and have recognized their need for a Savior,’ writes missionary Abby Goheen. [Then] the Kaje heard the parable of the sower. Pray that their hearts would be like the good soil and that their roots would grow deep and strong in the life-giving soil of God’s Word. Please pray for the Kaje people and the three missionary families as they approach the end of this phase of Bible teaching.”

Ongoing Teaching

Richard and Carmen Gappmayr minister in the Philippines. “Our ministry here continues to be multifaceted between coaching different missionaries in their growing participation in the Philippines and teaching at a small Bible school that prepares young men and women for ministry. A lot of [the students] come from very religious backgrounds, and some of that thinking is still evident in how they view the grace of God and other key doctrines. It has been a challenge, and we hope that we have been able to instill truth in them and challenge them to keep pursuing truth. … Pray for the people at the Bible school that they might be eager for truth, even if it means [laying] aside some of their old beliefs and practices.”

Tuesday
Books and Bible Lessons

Mike and Sandy Lynch minister to the Phu Thai people of Thailand. They wrote, “Mike was able to finish writing the Phu Thai Bible lessons that are geared toward the new believer. He also finished editing the audio version of the Phu Thai Bible lessons that are geared toward those who do not know anything about God, and [he] uploaded them to YouTube and Facebook.” Please be praying that the Lord would guide Phu Thai people to listen and that they would respond to these truths.

Wednesday
What is your role in missions?

Randy and Diana Smyth minister as representatives to inform, inspire and invite people to act in faith to complete the Great Commission. Our objective: Establish thriving churches. Our method: By teams living among them, learning the heart language, understanding the culture, translating the Scriptures, teaching foundationally and [intentionally discipling] — equipping the unreached people groups to join us, by faith in Christ, in establishing thriving churches where Christ is not known. Our role: Asking Christians to get involved: to pray, to give, to send and to go. Watch their video.

Thursday
Helicopter to Speed Missions in Brazil

Dwight and Diana Brown minister in McNeal, Arizona, at Ethnos360 Aviation International headquarters. “An R66 helicopter is right now being ferried to Brazil!! It will be our ‘new to us’ helicopter that will begin to serve over 10 locations out in the Amazon jungle. It truly is a miracle! Once again God used His people to fund this big project. How grateful we are that many missionaries won’t have to carry their supplies on their backs anymore. How grateful we are that little children won’t have to spend the night on the trail. The helicopter will be a huge asset in making these ministries more sustainable. Thank God with us, will you?

Friday
Bible Teaching

Matthew and Debi Zook minister to the Lolo people of Mozambique. “Everywhere we go, we teach that God is God of all and [that] Christ is the great Savior. Regarding the first point, the majority of church-going people [believe] God to be the ruler of some things (good things) and Satan is the god of bad things. The natural consequence is that people trust in God in some circumstance and the things of Satan in other circumstances. Regarding Christ as the great Savior, the majority of church-going people understand themselves to be their own saviors. Pray that people will see the truth that God is God of all and [that] Christ is the great Savior.”

More Baptisms

Jason and Nisae Williamson minister among the Iski people of Papua New Guinea. “We have recently been able to help facilitate more baptisms ... Here we had 23 people declare their desire to follow Christ. And 17 people in [the other village]. It was exciting to see more people publicly make statements of their desire to follow Christ. While we had many people baptized, we also had to turn many people away because of their misunderstanding of baptism. Even after many months of corrective teaching, many people still believe baptism is a meritorious work. Some think that through this act they will receive the Holy Spirit or [that] they will be ‘marked’ by God to do His work. Pray for those believers who are still struggling with this old way of thinking.”

Tuesday
Tepehuan New Testament Dedication

Caleb and Emily Arnold are en route to Mexico. “I (Caleb) have the opportunity to go down to Mexico at the end of November to celebrate the dedication of the Tepehuan New Testament! Kevin Case has spent 30 years faithfully translating God’s Word into the language of the Tepehuan people so that they can pick up a Bible and get to know the heart of God in their own language for the first time in history. In our culture where we have over 400 Bible translations in English, it is hard to imagine not having a Bible at all, but that is the situation for over 2,000 people groups around the world. The Tepehuan people now have a New Testament.” Pray for the Tepehuan people. Read more.

Wednesday
Few Help Lead the Church

Katie Moore is part of the Nahuatl team but was ministering among the Guarijío people of Mexico. “I met up with the Guarijío missionary team this [October] to prepare a set of primers so that more people from their village might be able to take a reading class that will enable them to feed themselves from the Word. Vicente, a young Guarijío man who was saved years ago, … is now the ‘go-to’ guy for the church in his village ... He spoke to me candidly about his frustration with the lack of involvement on the part of the other believers. When he is away from home, the church even stops meeting together until he returns. Without the ability to read the Word, the people there feel unable to continue to grow. Pray for the young people about to take a literacy class in their own language, that they would be moved by the Spirit to read the Scriptures that exist in their own language.” Read more.

Thursday
Thanksgiving

Jim Tanner ministers in Papua New Guinea. “Thanksgiving isn’t a holiday in this country, but we have plenty to be thankful for. Margaret is a local Bible teacher (small groups), and on Saturday, six of her students gave clear testimonies of their salvation through Christ alone. They are very thankful. Pray for their growth and wisdom for Margaret. People say, ‘Once you hear the way of salvation, it’s hard to keep your mouth shut!’ Imagine if Christians all over the world had that zeal.”

Friday
Courses

Dan and Judy Burke minister among the Chimane people in Bolivia. “The Class 4 discipleship course was encouraging! Dan had thirteen men in his class. This is our newest class, so the men don’t yet know each other well. Dan says they were pretty quiet and attentive. What stood out to me was how well our elders are doing at teaching some of the sessions. The first time when he asked them to participate by teaching with him about two years ago, it didn’t go so well. They taught super slowly and were sidetracked. … Now they all are doing a fantastic job of teaching. They seem totally comfortable and teach at a good clip, keeping things moving along and focused. Definite improvement!” Pray for continued progress in the discipleship teacher training.
