We would like to make a request for continued prayer for one of our first fields in West Africa, where STN has two adopted Unreached People Groups. Many hours of prayer have been put into these groups on behalf of the STN staff, teams, and their families and supporters since we began work there in 2003. God has worked among them to produce two indigenous churches, led by indigenous pastors, full of believers who are being baptized and discipled. We are so thankful for their faithfulness and their trust in the Lord.
In 2012, while an STN team was on the field, an event occurred in this country that led civil war to break out several months later. STN has not been able to continue to have a physical presence with these people since this happened, but have continued partnership with these groups and their pastors through finances, facilitation of discipleship events (pictured above), and of course fervent intercessory prayer.
Today we would like to honor these people, their hearts for the Lord, and encourage you to:
- Pray for them as they and their nation continue to heal from the political upheaval they have been through, and for the government of this nation to stabilize.
- Pray that each people group holds strong and continues to grow believers and disciple one another.
- Pray that the pastors and their families are supported by their communities and continue on in their work.
- Pray that STN and other groups will be able to have a presence among these people and in this area of the world for the glory of Jesus.
