Prayer Highlight

Aug 11, 2017

  1. Rejoice that translation consultant Ross Hodsdon has been liberated from his frail body. He went to be with the Lord on Sunday afternoon, August 6, following a six-year battle with cancer. Pray for his wife, translation consultant Cathy Hodsdon, and for their four children and their spouses and children. Included among their children is BI’s literacy and linguistics coordinator Connie Champeon. Ross’ memorial service will be on Saturday, August 19 at West Hampden Baptist Church in Hampden, Maine.
  2. Praise the Lord that translation consultant Joshua Hedges has arrived home safely following his trip to Chad, Africa, where he worked with the Day-speaking people on their Old Testament.
  3. Thank the Lord for good progress in the Sara Kaba Deme workshop in Chad, Africa, where the team worked on their Old Testament. Resident missionary translation consultant, Anna Beth Wivell, led this workshop.
  4. Pray as the consultant seminar is now in progress at the Grand Rapids office. Ask the Lord to bless the speakers and participants.
  5. Pray as BI missionaries and staff go off campus next week for the annual meeting. Ask the Lord to use their time there to bless and encourage the attendees.
  6. Please continue to pray for appointees Jim and Jenna Wright as they seek housing in the Grand Rapids area. Pray the Lord will direct them to something that fits the needs of their growing family that is within their price range. It is their hope that they might move to this area before they need to put their children in school for the coming academic school year.
  7. Continue to pray for those who are on deputation, trying to complete their support needs. Chris Parker has 75%. Joe and Bonnie Valentin have 70%. Jim and Jenna Wright have 63%.
  8. Pray for children of missionaries and/or staff who are beginning or will be beginning college classes soon. Pray especially for Amanda Walton, daughter of interim director Gary Walton and his wife, Faith. Amanda has just started post-graduate work for a doctorate in physical therapy. Those classes can be intense; pray as she launches into this new area of study. Other students will be beginning their undergraduate studies in the next few weeks.
  9. Thank the Lord that though consultant-in-training Joel Wagner and his oldest daughter both recently suffered from Dengue fever in Myanmar, where they live, their symptoms were not as serious as they might have been. God was good to them.
  10. Continue to pray that the Lord would lead administrators at Baptist Mid-Missions as they seek a new director for Bibles International.
