SOUTH EAST ASIA: A STAFF MEMBER has been ministering in a local fishing village for the past seven years alongside two other ministry partners. One of the ministry couples has decided to commit to ministry in the village a full time focus. This new commitment was confirmed for them when they were able to spend time with a suicidal woman in deep depression. They prayed for her and asked to be shown how to pray. The couple and staff member believe this was a divine appointment. Pray for this couple as they transition to full time ministry and look for financial support and for the staff member as he helps coach this couple as they transition to ministry.
