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.

Jonathan and Sarah Griffiths
FMI Missionaries to England
  • A smooth transition in the move from England to the US. That God would remove any obstacles, open and close doors according to His will and give you peace knowing that it is all part of His plan.
  • That their children will experience His presence, peace and assurance of new friends and a bright future ahead.
  • That the seeds planted while in England will continue to be nurtured, grow and bear much fruit for God’s kingdom.
  • That relationships will continue, even across the world, according to God’s design.
  • That God will bless them with provisions and a new focus as they get re-established in their new home.

Chris Curry
Thailand
  • Renewed energy and strength for Apple as she continues working at the hospital with Covid worsening and with her new position. 
  •  Patience and for the fruit of the Spirit to be living and active among us as we continue to homeschool our children.
  •  Though access to the Red Lahu has been hampered last month, this month limited access has been granted due to a Lahu holiday. We’ve reengaged with two villages and hope to visit others. We wish to share Jesus with them passionately and also safely. Please be praying.
 
Gary and Joy Peiss
Slovakia
  • Continued favor in navigating restrictions to allow us to travel and assist/encourage FMI Europe workers in the midst of the ongoing pandemic.
  • Protection over health in the midst of growing (again) Covid cases here in Europe.
  • Thanksgiving for a place for Bratislava International Fellowship (BIF) to meet ... if only for a season.  The Soviet-era performing arts center (Istropolis) we were at has now closed for demolition, but we have been able to use a shared space at the ministry center of our parent church - City Church Bratislava - for our Sunday services.  We are praying for wisdom and guidance as we seek a longer-term solution for gatherings on Sunday and throughout the week.
  • Devoted time and the skills necessary to work on improving our Slovak language skills.

Bea and Wade Preston
Cote d'Ivoire, Africa
  • Those in West Africa who know the love of Christ, to spread it to the 36 ethic groups of Cote d’lvoire and beyond as well as for them to have vision and necessary support.
  •  The final weeks of the Mission School and for the three-month church planting internship. For initiative to apply their training along with encouragement and support.
  •  The Leadership Team and support staff: Bea, Wade, Pastor Wodji, Maman Wodji, Esdras, Helena, Sylvestre, Prisca, Mohammed, Maman Corcher, Larissa and others who “make the work light”.
  •  Stable Internet Connection and Electricity

Jan and Corb Morgan
Many Tribes, Montana
  • For endurance, strength and continued healing for Jeff as well as the new safer environment.
  • For the Native discipleship group that they will grow in love and faith for Christ. For provision in the way of a “meeting place” for these groups.
  • For Corb’s health and  good reports from his doctors.

Anna Marie Mazzone
FMI Missionary / Germany
  • Those on the streets, who we have lost contact with but who have a heart for the Gospel: that they will experience Jesus, continue to seek him and that God would work to grow the seeds that were sown into fruit of salvation and new life in Christ. Pray also for wisdom as to where, when and how we are to start again with discipleship groups.
  • The refugees, to stay connected with fellow Christians and continue to grow in their faith especially the young Persian disciples without Internet access to be discipled by the Holy Spirit in their special time of local fellowship and that He will fill the gaps where we are limited.
  • The teen groups to be able to meet in person as soon as possible so as to build connections and grow in their faith. For the right Kids/Youth Pastor to come forward with a heart for these youth and a willingness to invest 100% of their time and focus.
