Prayer requests

I just finished a book that warns against deception when it comes to ministry. The author suggests keeping four things in mind in this process. I would appreciate prayer for me in these areas.

  • Humility – Not letting pride or self accomplishment rob you form the success in ministry.
  • Love for Truth – Keeping the Word of God as the primary directional tool
  • Fear of God – Avoiding flippancy and recognizing him as the all powerful Creator of the universes and Lover of my soul.
  • Keeping the Cross Central  It’s all about his sacrifice on the cross that makes a relationship with god possible, let alone a successful ministry to others.
Also be praying for:

  • Team unity (Elena, Aaron, Andria. Nathanial, and I)
  • Health, particularly for - Nathanial
  • Successful communication with loved ones, especially for Aaron and Andrea who have difficulty contacting family in Costa Rica
  • Safety as we will all be traveling a lot in the next few months
  • Ease in learning the language and the breaking down of the language barrier
  • Spirit-filled interactions, and ministry moments
  • Further revelations of God’s goodness, faithfulness, and love for us and the people of Ethiopia
  • Desta (Joy)
