Prayer requests

Northwest Church supports missionaries all over the world and we are committed to praying for them. Here is a list of prayer requests, which we update as they come in:

thinkSMALL / Paula and Gary Hays:

  • For CHILDREN worldwide:  To be PROTECTED.  To have the opportunity to KNOW JESUS.  To be discipled to FOLLOW JESUS.  To be TRANSFORMATIONAL AGENTS for their communities and nations.
  • For thinkSMALL teams: for provision, protection and guidance.  For wisdom and discernment to adapt to changing needs and cultures.  For clear direction in how to respond to new opportunities.
  • That God would call, equip, and raise up a GLOBAL thinkSMALL team to help do the "harvest" work of reaching, protecting, discipling, and mentoring children to become the leaders of the future. (Matthew 28:19-20)
  • That all nations will put their hope in JESUS!  (Matthew 12:21)



God called Chandelle to missions in Alaska when she was 16 years old, and that has been her life goal ever since. Her name is the French word for "candle," and she believes that God wants her to be a light in the spiritual darkness of the Far North. She will be focusing on youth ministry among immigrants and refugees in Anchorage, as well as creating and running a discipleship/internship program for Christian young people, so they can learn to live "missionally" wherever God calls them.


FMI Thailand

Christopher, Apple, and their two boys, Ethan (8) and Aiden (6), serve in Thailand. Their ministry is among one of the least reached people groups in Thailand - the Lahu Nyi (Red Lahu). Providing medicines and essential care to children and mothers will open doors to villages and hearts needing to hear of Jesus's love. Naturally, discipleship will follow and new churches will spring up among this people group where only 1% of the Christians are evangelical.

For more information on how to join the "Thai Curries" in reaching the Red Lahu, please email Christopher at:


FMI Slovakia

Gary & Joy are ordained Foursquare pastors and devoted Christ-followers called to serve and support missionaries and pastors. Across Europe, they are a resource to those who have said, "Yes, Lord, send me!" Coming alongside to encourage and assist in any way, they are extra hands on the plow for these individuals, couples, and families, as they invest in the harvest fields where the Lord has called them. In their home city of Bratislava, Slovakia, Gary & Joy serve their community as pastors of Bratislava International Fellowship.

FMI England

Jonathan and Sarah Griffiths previously pastored in Nampa, Idaho, and now live with their four children in Cheltenham, England. Their vision is to see the multiplication of disciple-makers and the visible church in every neighborhood. Through prayer, relationship, service, and commitment to sharing the gospel, they have started a lunchtime ministry in the local primary school, a mentoring group of teenage guys in a coffee shop, a regular Sunday evening Missional Community in their home, and have a growing participation in the creative community. In this next season they aim to establish a space in the community for prayer and for nurturing the artists of Cheltenham.

FMI Thailand

thinkSMALL is a non-profit organization that mobilizes Christian churches of all denominations to transform their nation by reaching children for Christ by evangelism and discipleship through in-country leaders.

Hundreds of thousands of children have been helped through Drug Prevention and Child Protection community transformation projects. Over 300,000 have made decisions to follow Christ through thinkSMALL ministry, and over 80% have entered discipleship.

Anna Marie Mazzone is a gifted young leader serving with Foursquare Missions Europe and FMI. She currently serves in Bielefeld, Germany, a city of 330,000 with a large refugee population. Her work in reconciliation of national leaders and the forming of a strong generation of Christian leaders is not an easy task, but is yielding incredible fruit, thanks to her reliance on God’s Word and His plans for her life.

Jesse and Haley Millar are Missionaries in Ethiopia, Called to Spark a Missional Movement from Ethiopia to Africa and the rest of the world.  

With over 60 missional small discipleship groups across their city—Addis Ababa, they serve to empower Africans to do the work of the ministry.  One of their greatest joys while serving as missionaries in Ethiopia is seeing the hands of begging turn into the hands of blessing.  The Millars give of themselves out of a belief that from Africa, God will bless the rest of the world.  Serving under African Leadership, they have had the privilege of serving the the least to the greatest, from Ambassadors and UN diplomats to day laborers, their ministry is a host to Kingdom transformation through the word of God.  

Jesse and Haley have 2 kids, Zayma Joy (2.5) and Alister Daniel (1).
