__________________ DAY 19 – CROSS-CULTURAL KIDS__________________
My soul, wait silently for God alone, for my expectation is from Him.
Today I/we pray for attendees: Andrea, Aimee, Dina, and Cindy
Like believing moms everywhere, our attendees’ heart cry is that their children have an intimate, personal walk with the Lord. Raising kids on the field in some ways is no different than raising kids in the US and in numerous ways, quite unique. Second guessing one’s call when children struggle with identity, friends, and cultural adjustment is not uncommon. Lord I/we lift up women at the retreat who are experiencing tension and difficult decisions concerning their children. Raising teens carries its own challenges, in addition to living overseas, the complications can be many. May these ladies sense your wisdom, peace, and grace as they journey through the various family challenges.
May Christina (retreat coordinator) find favor in the hotel staff’s eyes as she prepares for the volunteers’ and then the attendees’ arrival.
Mongolia can be found wedged between Russia and China. This country of approximately 3 million people has seen rapid growth among the Christian community. There is believed to have been only 4 believers in 1989 and today there are over 40,000. Lord, I/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 among new or immature believers and churches. I/we pray for solid teaching of God’s word and equipping of sound church leaders.
In Jesus’ name, Amen.
