Thank you so much for praying for us as a family and for our ministry (The CROSS Project) here in Zambia. It’s been almost a year since I last updated the “Pray” tab of our blog! I hope to do better at updating this part of our blog in the future – because we really need your prayers! So, here are some things to fuel your prayer for us, the CROSS Project, and ACTION Zambia.
-Please pray for us (the Dearths) as we make preparations for our Home Assignment Sep 4th, 2014 – Jan 15th, 2015. We’ll be speaking at multiple churches around the Midwest and seeing friends and supporters as well.
-Please pray for wisdom and guidance as we finish up the CROSS Project Term 1 of 2014. The two churches that we are training right now have about a month to go before they graduate.
-Pray that God would work mightily in hearts, minds, and actions as people think and pray about how should they respond as a Christian and glorify God in HIV/AIDS and domestic abuse in their lives, their families lives, churches, and communities.
-Pray that we are able to find enough Nyanja Bibles for the graduates. Due to some poor planning, Zambia has run out of one of the main Zambian translations of the Bible (besides English), and the next printing may not be ready till this summer.
-Please continue to pray for strength, guidance, energy, and joy for Pastor John Chitambo and Counselor Eta Imasiku, our two national workers, as they minister alongside us in the CROSS Project and also provide for their families and serve in their churches.
-Please pray for CROSS (Derek, Kristin, John and Eta), as we help out in counseling and with some medical assistance at a local feeding program in George Compound for 100 HIV-positive children. It’s run by a local church and its pastor, Wozifera Ngoma, and his wife, Easter, who are also on staff with ACTION Zambia Ministries. The feedings happen for lunch every Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday.
-Pray that God would pour out His grace on the Zambian Church and that it would glorify God in how it relates to HIV/AIDS and domestic abuse.
-Pray for unity, endurance, hope, and joy in Jesus for the ACTION Zambia team and sweet times in the Word each day.
-We would really appreciate broad, general prayers for our entire ACTION Zambia Team as well as their ministries.
-Please continue to pray for more funds for CROSS, CROSS Graduation Bibles, and the George Feeding Program.
