February 28: Steve & Shawna Matthews, Oak, NE

Matthews1We’re in a farming area of SE Nebraska, very near the border of Kansas, with fields of corn and soybeans. Our town has about 50-60 people; Oak is a great community, with good people. This is the only church in town, so everyone considers it their church. Pray for us and our outreach into the community. Pray for spiritual and physical growth for the church, that the people would see the need to have Jesus in their life, and that people would love each other and be understanding.

February 21: Mike & Kim Kunkle, Quaker Street, NY

KunklesOur area, in the hill towns west of Albany, is beautiful. We have a lot of hunters and hard-working people. Quaker Street Bible Church and Delanson are a fairly close community. The church family is warm & friendly and not hard to please – they are very laid back. Pray for balance in time management between work on the physical church building, Bible study, and local outreach. We would like to see more involvement of men in the church, not only in attendance, but in ministry as well. In our own personal lives, we need to spend more time with the family and to live a life that honors the Lord.

February 14: Guy & Geni Shields, Shan Creek, OR

Shields-GOur church is nestled in the wooded rolling hills of SW Oregon, within earshot of the Rogue River. Although our address is Grants Pass, we’re 16 miles west of town and considered to be in the ‘county.’ This was a thriving logging area, but now tourism, retirees, and small businesses play a major part in the local economy. About 2,000 people live on Riverbanks Road in close proximity to the church. However, many properties are gated, making contact difficult. We use bulk mailings as one way to get information about the church into the homes. Pray that God will pour out His Spirit upon His people, that the life & ministry of SCCBC might be well-pleasing to Him and effective in the work of the Kingdom. It’s a blessing to serve alongside so many faithful servants of the Lord. Many in this congregation are involved in ministry in the church, as well as serving in other ministries, like CEF, New Hope Christian School, and the Gospel Rescue Mission. Pray that more children/teens will come to Sunday school. Praise the Lord for a strong Awana ministry; ask the Lord to bring more children/teens from the Riverbanks Road community. Pray for the salvation of those who attend but do not yet trust Christ as their Savior. Pray for the believers to grow in their knowledge of our Lord and Savior and to bring honor and glory to His name as they walk faithfully with Him.

As You Pray This Week

prayer-requestsDear Praying Friends:

Thank you for bringing Village Missions before the Lord. Please keep these special needs in mind as you pray this week.

Praise for God moving in the hearts of people to give to Village Missions. With some cutting of expenses and increased giving, we are in the black. We thank the Lord for His provision!

Pray for candidates as they go through the application process, that God’s will for their ministry would be clear to them.

Pray that the Lord will give grace to Village Missionaries that is equal to the task.

Thank you for praying!

February 7: Alan & Bonnie Klein, Sutherlands River, NS

KleinsWe’re located just off the Trans Canada Highway between Truro and Cape Breton Island. Our nearest town, New Glasgow, is the largest town in Pictou County. The region has history in coal mining and manufacturing and currently is home to Michelin, Sobey’s head office, and Neenah Paper. We live among rolling hills and our church is on 23 acres of land with lots of trees. Our church bought this small farm in 1998 and has been working on renovations to convert the barn to a church. Although the main work has been done for a few years now, we’re finishing up all the final touches, including installation of a kitchen. Pray for us as we finish the work this winter and look to the Lord for direction for the next stage of ministry.
