Prayer Requests for Week of May 24

Prayer Points for This Week

Monday: Ryan and Cathren Hundertmark are feeling out of their element. All that was normal is no more. “Living in Senegal has completely changed my understanding of normal,” Ryan wrote. The paradox is that, in the midst of all the change, they serve an unchanging God. Would you pray for Ryan and Cathren as they adjust to a new normal? Read the whole story …

Tuesday: “One night last week I was awoken … when I heard the pitter patter of little feet in the ceiling directly above me. … It is amazing how a small rat can sound like a 20-pound cat when it is in the ceiling. It is hard to go back to sleep when it starts chewing into things that are stored up there and the chewing sound is echoing throughout the room.

Likewise, their equipment on the field is wearing out as well. Some of their equipment is more than 20 years old and limping along, requiring time for maintenance that pulls them away from translating the Bible. Could you pray with them for the finances needed for a new solar panel system, backup generator and efficient 12-volt refrigerator?

Friday: “The Wahgi people, like many of us, have had years of practice in doing the wrong thing and handling conflict in a wrong and unbiblical manner,” wrote Levi and Robyn Lenz.
