November 2014 Prayer: Asia

Thank you for praying for the Regional Manager’s trip. It was very successful.

Thank you for your prayers for the shipments of Proclaimers and Mini Proclaimers – they have arrived safely. Please pray that the people receiving these devices will be blessed by hearing God’s Word in their heart language.

During his travels, the FCBH Regional Manager had the opportunity to meet the new General Secretary of the Bible Society, who had been a leader in the Church of Bangladesh as well as in positions with other mission organizations. Please pray for him and the Bible Society as they partner with FCBH to fulfill God’s purposes for the country.

Please pray for Scripture Use (also known as Scripture Union) Bible listening groups as they minister to the teens in this country – the need is great. A pilot project was just completed and had wonderful results. Plans are being made for a Christmas program and for teens to visit senior citizens all with the focus to be on listening to Audio Scriptures.

Praise God! Groups within this country are welcoming the Audio Scriptures and want to do more. Details are coming in slowly because of the sensitive nature of ministry here, but information will be shared as it becomes available.

Thank the Lord for the commitment of our partners who are participating in FCBH Bible listening and sharing the Word of God! Here is another testimony telling about how people learn of God’s love through listening to His Word and are being discipled:

A brother from a Hindu family works in a rice mill. He and his wife recently visited a relative who is doing ministry work. They heard the Audio Scriptures and came to know about Jesus for the first time. He had many questions that members of the listening group were able to answer. Since the time they first listened, he and his wife have been attending a regular fellowship back home. He began to have a love for Jesus Christ and for the fellowship of believers and has accepted Jesus as his Savior. Please pray for them as they learn to show their love and commitment to Jesus.

Please pray for those who are giving their lives to the Lord as a result of hearing His Word; also for translations that are complete that now need to be recorded so that God’s Word can spread to those who cannot read.

Papua New Guinea:
For many years, our partner has had success in distributing Audio Bibles. However, geographical obstacles and tribal fighting have restricted follow-up efforts. Please pray that we can find a way to do the necessary follow-up to ensure that the Audio Bibles are effectively utilized and the workers are duly supported and encouraged. Also pray that we can find the most efficient and effective means of recording the nearly 200 translations currently available in different languages of this nation.

Southeast Asian Restricted Access Nation:
We have an opportunity to provide the Audio Scriptures to thousands within an ethnic minority in this country, which will overcome the physical obstacles and government restrictions, and make the Scriptures widely available within a short period of time. Please pray that the proper arrangements can be made and that the Audio Scriptures will be fruitful among this people group; that God would provide the right people and the means necessary to begin a far-reaching language recording process here as millions are waiting for His Word in their heart language.

Southeast Asian Restricted Access Nation:
This nation is completely closed to Christianity. Persecution is frequent and heavy. However, we have a few partners who are relentless in providing access to the Gospel for these people. Please pray for their safety; that God would lead them to trustworthy people who can carry on the work of discipling those who come to Him; for God to grant us creative and effective ways of delivering Audio Bibles to these partners.
