Our regional manager just returned from traveling to Eastern Europe to attend various meetings with Bible Societies. Please pray that as a result of these meetings we would receive the permission to record much-needed languages. **UPDATE** Praise God for your prayers being answered . . . all the Bible Societies that our Regional Manager met with have expressed a desire to have their Bibles recorded and added to the Digital Bible Platform.
Please continue to pray for those working with refugees in southeastern Europe that the BibleStick would continue to play a significant role in the lives of the refugees who cannot or do not read their language. **UPDATE** Your prayers are answered again! Many of the Bible Societies our Regional Manager met with want to do their own outreach to refugees using Faith Comes By Hearing Mini Proclaimers and BibleSticks.
Pray for opportunities to use the Audio New Testament to reach the Komi-Zyrian-speaking people in Russia who need to know the Good News.
Because of the extreme difficulty in working in the following regions, language and country names have been changed or omitted to protect our partners and their workers.
Please continue to pray for the progress of the Atta (pseudonym) recording as it has been delayed. This area of the Caucasus Mountains in southern Russia has been torn by multiple wars. Pray that there will be many opportunities to partner with workers who are sharing the Gospel among this people group; for the safety of the recording team as they conduct a research trip to one of the deadliest parts of this region for Christians; and for reliable contacts in order to accomplish the recording of a language referred to as ‘Z.’ **UPDATE** Praise God for the successful recording research trip for the ‘Z’ recording. There were very few people who could actually read the ‘Z’ language, but the team found one man with an excellent voice and they are recording ‘Z’ in a safe city far away from that region.
Please pray that refugees from the Syrian and Iraqi conflicts who are receiving God’s Word on BibleSticks would have an opportunity to meet with a believer to ask questions and be discipled.
Praise God for the couriers who will be carrying in BibleSticks for the Bible Society of Palestine. Pray for divine appointments for these BibleSticks, which will be used to minister to Arab Christians and as an outreach to Palestinian non-Christians; that men and women all over the country will come to Jesus.
Praise God for a pastor and his team that have been using Proclaimers to witness to people who are working in the fields; to crews who are working on roads; and to workers in a brick factory. Several of these people have professed faith in Jesus and have been baptized. Pray for protection for the teams as they boldly witness in a country that is very hostile to the Gospel. **UPDATE** A recent shipment of Proclaimers sent to this pastor are being held up. Pray that God would intervene and allow them to be released.
