Holding the Rope: How you can be involved

When you pray for our needs, you are holding the rope.
When you pray for our needs, you are holding the rope.

 We call it “Holding the rope.”

This saying goes back to the first Baptist missionary, William Carey.

Before leaving for Asia, he told his fellow believers, “If you’ll hold the rope, I’ll go down in the well.”

We are dependent on our friends in America for prayer and encouragement.

 

Sunday Prayer Points

1. Please pray for Daniella Jeremiadoss who has malaria.  She is daughter of our co-workers and precious friends, Selvin and Laurel Jeremiadoss who work in South Sudan.   Daniella is in a Nairobi (Kenya) hospital.

2.  Lift up our travel this week to Adjumani Refugee Camps. We leave tomorrow (Monday) for a week Up Country. We need your prayer for safe travel and favor with officials.  Pray for fellow travellers JD Hull and Bryan and Elizabeth Breland (from Virginia).

3. Remember host pastor Joseph Anyovi and the Refugee Camp pastors as we hold a training session on Wed/Thur/Fri.

 

When you pray, you’re holding the rope!

Grateful for your friendship,
