The James Family
Kep & Debbie August 2020 Prayer Requests
*Please continue to pray for the Covid situation in Bolivia. Hospitals are overwhelmed. A high percentage of patients have died, and cities are even burying people in mass graves. Ongoing business shut-downs have left many financially destitute (many businesses closed; many have lost their jobs). The ILC Church is providing food to many struggling to put food on the table for their families. Our numerous phone and internet meetings/ conversations indicate to us that God is drawing many people to Himself and showing others their need for Christ. Please pray that the Lord will use all these difficulties to bring many Bolivians to faith in Christ.
*Pray for the ESI-DisciplesMakingDisciples leaders and groups in the 15 countries where we currently have groups. About half the 180 ESI groups continue meeting by internet – the other half who don’t have internet access are waiting to resume after things open back up in their countries. Please pray that the Lord will transform many lives as pastors and church leaders study Romans. Pray that men and women will become gospel-centered in their thinking, passionate about Jesus in their living, and faithful in their service -- committed that no one should live or die without having the opportunity to hear the good news of Jesus.
*Pray for the ILC Church leadership team, for wisdom deciding when and how to return to physically meeting as a church.
*Pray for Debbie as she shares the gospel with many women via phone and internet, disciples many women, and continues teaching the Bible to the ILC Church women.
*We continue to see encouraging signs that God is developing in Pastor Pepe Rocha a heart for Jesus in his private life and pastoral ministry.
