Attendees: Lee, Laurel, Carla, and Krista

Two are better than one, because they have a good return for their work: If one falls down, his friend can help him up. But pity the man who falls and has no one to help him up! Also, if two lie down together, they will keep warm  But how can one keep warm alone? Though one may be overpowered, two can defend themselves. A cord of three strands is not quickly broken (Ecclesiastes 4:9-12).

Father, we want to lift up the single women serving you overseas. We pray that they would find a close friend either on their team or with a national believer; may this person join them in fellowship with You. We ask that they will develop friends that are like-minded; may they find girlfriends who they can just have fun with! Help them guard their schedules. As they say goodbye and hello to many roommates, enable them to keep their hearts open. Provide for their needs in unique ways and encourage them when they long for companionship and the closeness of family and friends in the States. Help them lean hard into You during dry, hard, and lonely seasons of life. Many of them have the desire and are open to getting married. May they trust You in this area of their life – we ask You to orchestrate meeting godly, available men, in Your perfect timing. If they are in a relationship, we ask that You give them wisdom and discernment as to Your will for them. Fill them with godly contentment and intimate encounters with You.

MONGOLIA: Found wedged between Russia and China, this country of approximately three million people has seen rapid growth amongst the Christian community. There may have been only four believers in 1989 and today there are over 40,000. We pray that growth would continue, but with a Mongolian flavor. Biblically centered but with cultural relevance. There has been a resurgence of traditional religions that can dilute the Christian message amongst those new or immature believers and churches. We ask for solid teaching of God’s word and equipping sound church leaders. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
