In 2018, we supported ministries within the US, Africa, and India. Those ministries included Intervarsity Fellowship (US), Younglife (US), Focus New York City (US), Wycliffe USA – Bible Translation (Chad, Africa), the Diocese of Eastern Himalaya (India), and the Eleutheros Christian Society (India).
Missions Prayer for Carolyn Carney and Nancy Pedulla, Intervarsity
Please pray for our congregation members, Carolyn Carney and Nancy Pedulla, as they head to South Africa to attend World Assembly from July 3-10. World Assembly is a unique gathering every 4 years of people from 160 countries working in university-related ministries, including students, graduates, supporters, staff, board members and other guests.
The theme of the assembly is “Messengers of Hope.” Please pray specifically for:
-Traveling mercies for Nancy and Carolyn (and all the attendees!);
-The Holy Spirit to shower down on the meetings as the attendees share how God is at work in their ministries, engage with Scripture, and discuss how to be faithful followers of Jesus who can continue to bear a message of hope to the world in which we live today;
-Wisdom for Nancy as she prepares to conduct a workshop about leadership to people from different countries and cultures;
-Openness of mind, heart and spirit for both Carolyn and Nancy as they learn from the others about how to shape their work in the US. In particular, they ask for prayer regarding: How are other movements praying? How are they seeking revival? How do we need to be training our 1700 staff in the coming years? What do our staff need to be faithful messengers of hope in this multicultural context?
