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 August 2017:

Pray With Us

  • Linguistics is hard. Pray that the Lord would give us intelligence and diligence to press forward in our studies.
  • Pray for the kids as they will be going to a charter school in Dallas this year. This will be their first experience with this type of education.
  • Pray that many others would go into missions. We see more and more how much work there is to be done. Pray that the Lord of the harvest would send out more workers.
  • Pray that we would all maintain (and grow?) in our abilities to speak French and Bakoum.
  • Pray for peace in Cameroon. There is both terrorism going on in the Extreme North and civil unrest in the Northwest and Southwest Regions.

Praise With Us

  • We have been so blessed to spend time with family and friends. Thank God for Christian Fellowship!
  • We traveled over 8,000 miles in a car and did not have a single accident. Praise the Lord.
  • God has allowed us to go to a school with professors that have done what we are hoping to do. Praise the Lord for good teachers, good counsel, and great resources.
  • The Lord has provided a new homeschool teacher for the kids when we go back to Cameroon in 2018.
  • We have been able to have a number of very good conversations with people who are considering becoming missionaries.

Here is a list of people groups in Cameroon that do not have a single word of the Bible in their language. If you click on a name, it will bring up a printable prayer card for that people group. Note, the people in the pictures are not from that people group.

I created a folder (HERE) with various prayer cards including:

  • Our family prayer card
  • Prayer cards for each of the people groups in Cameroon that do not have any of the Scriptures in their language (note: the people in the photos are not from the tribes listed)
  • Prayer cards specific to Kwakum people.

Here are the prayer cards for specific Kwakum people that I made up:
