EFM’s monthly prayer letter for May is ready for release. In this issue twelve of our missionaries and national leaders share both praises and prayer concerns related to the countries in which they serve. Most of what they share relates to how the spread of COVID-19 is impacting their lives, ministries, churches, and the places where they are located. Here are a few examples:
|From Bangladesh: Praise God that most of our believers’ families have started house churches because of restrictions from the government. If there is no Coronavirus attack, they might not have started any house churches in those families.|
|From Northern India: K. has been having a lot of medical questions lately. She helps the best she can, but there is not always an answer to give. We always pray with the people who come to see her for medical advice and are thankful for the opportunities these moments present. Please pray for her and for those that seek her advice and go on to doctors!|
|From the Philippines: Praise God that we continue to meet through social media, live streams with worship service broadcast weekly. We have all found ways to reach out to our neighbors. Our unintentional garden has been a source of fresh vegetables to at least six families. This has been an important source of nutrition because the government only supplies these families with rice and cans of sardines and other tins of meat, almost no fruit or vegetables.|
|From Rwanda: Tertullien is thankful for the opportunity to focus on discipling his children at home during this crisis. His girls (four of his own plus two others staying with them) appreciate learning from many of the D4D (Discipling for Development) lessons.|
