We PRAISE God for a wonderful and encouraging time with family, friends, and supporters as we traveled around the midwest (WI, MI, IN, KY) in September and shared about our ministry and what God is doing in Zambia. Now we are back in the Minneapolis area and are hanging out with friends and family here and waiting for this baby to arrive.
-Please pray for Kristin and baby boy #2 as we are getting very close, Lord willing, to this little guy arriving! Kristin is technically due on the 27th of October, but we are praying that he comes sooner (see why in the next prayer item)! Please pray for a safe delivery and a healthy baby and mom.
-Please pray for me (Derek), as I will need to make an unexpected trip back to Zambia from November 4-14. There will be more on why this is happening later, but it’s nothing bad. We all head back to Zambia from this Home Assignment as a family on January 14th.
-We are praying for additional monthly prayer and financial partners for us personally. Please click here for giving options, if you feel so led to donate to the Dearths.
-Please pray for John and Eta (our two national workers in the CROSS Project), as they teach our new 4-week Domestic Abuse Lesson at two locations this Fall as well as teach the normal 16-week CROSS Project curriculum at one church this Fall and also get some well-deserved rest while we are here in the States.
-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 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.
