Prayer

We are often encouraged by how many people are praying for our family and our endeavors. So, we thought we would have a tab with just updated prayer requests:


Things we Always Need Prayer For:
  • Pray that the Lord would raise up hundreds of translators within our life-time so that the remaining ~200 languages in Cameroon would have access to the Scriptures. Pray that every single person in Cameroon would have access to a Bible they can understand. 
  • Pray that the Lord would use our ministry to mobilize many into missions. 
  • Pray that the Holy Spirit would bless his Word and cause multitudes to worship Christ. 
  • Pray that the Lord would grant us remarkable intelligence as we learn languages and translate His Word. 
  • Pray we would be led by, empowered by, and full of the Holy Spirit as we translate and share the Gospel. 
  • Pray that all of our children would be saved young and that they would make "our ministry" their own. That our home would serve as a training center so that they can be sent out to do Kingdom work. 
  • Pray that we would be characterized by this kind of love towards those inside and those outside of our home: 1 Corinthians 13:4-7 "Love is patient and kind; love does not envy or boast; it is not arrogant or rude. It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful; it does not rejoice at wrongdoing, but rejoices with the truth. Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things." 
  • For physical safety in Cameroon (especially on the roads) and that we'd be kept from sickness and disease. 
  • That the Lord would grant us long lives so that we could see the entire Bible translated from Genesis to Revelation. 

Current Prayer Requests: As of October 2016:


Pray With Us
  • My (Stacey’s) mom has recently been diagnosed with stage three ovarian cancer. Please pray that the treatment would be effective, that my mom would experience the peace of the Lord in suffering, and that we would get to spend time with her when we return to the States in March. Also, on a personal note, I am having a harder time concentrating on my studies in light of all this. Pray for grace to get through the next 5 months and that the Lord would establish the work of my hands in the midst of it all.
  • Pray for Laura, that she would continue to come learn both how to read and learn the Bible with me (Stacey).
  • Pray for the Lord to save all of our children, and especially Elias who is extraordinarily contrary and hard-hearted.
  • Pray that we would reach our language requirements by March.
  • Pray that we would one day be able to teach in this language well.

Praise With Us
  • For bringing Megan here to help us homeschool our kids.
  • For our son Kaden’s soft heart towards the Lord.
  • That Bakoum children are learning truths about who God is.
  • For Ginger, the seasoned linguist, who is coming to help us analyze tone.
  • For our new language partner, Bosco.
