Rejoice always, pray continually, give thanks in all circumstances;
for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.

THE GROVES: CBM Field Staff Dan and Melody Grove are currently in Canada, as Dan continues to recover from cancer surgery. "He is feeling well and gaining strength and endurance from week to week," the Groves shared in a recent update. "Pray that he would be able to use this experience to encourage others and bring them closer to God." The Groves plan to return to Cameroon in January 2018. Please pray for a smooth transition as they make preparations to resume their work in the Central African country. Please also remember their colleagues in Cameroon who continue to serve in translation, literacy and mobilization efforts. Please pray for their safety, protection for their families, and that each team member would have the health and strength needed to persevere through trials. 

A NEW CHAPTER: Please pray for CBM Field Staff Rupen and Mamta Das, as they will be leaving CBM on December 30 to pursue a new opportunity. After much prayer and consideration, Rupen has accepted the role of National Director of the Canadian Bible Society, an organization which seeks to promote the translation and use of Scripture around the world. The Dases will be returning to Canada to make the transition, as the head office is located in Toronto. Please pray for wisdom, guidance and support as they transition out of their current roles in Amsterdam and prepare for the work ahead. The Dases have worked with CBM since 2009 when they were appointed to serve in Lebanon. At the beginning of 2015, the Dases were reassigned to work with CBM’s partner, the European Baptist Federation (EBF) based in Amsterdam. Says CBM Executive Director Terry Smith, “While we will miss the Dases here at CBM, we know that God will use them in a unique and strategic manner in the future.”

INDIGENOUS WOMEN: This week, the National Inquiry into Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls is holding community hearings in Nova Scotia. The hearings, which will come to a close on Wednesday, are being held at Membertou First Nation in Cape Breton. The national inquiry will visit communities across Canada this fall, hearing testimonies and stories from dozens of witnesses. Please pray for God’s peace, healing and justice to reign during this time. Also, pray that the proceedings would go smoothly, as the inquiry has already faced significant delays and criticism. We pray that the interim report, which is scheduled for release on Nov. 1, will shed light on the issues facing Indigenous women. May God bring healing to the families who are still grieving the loss of their loved ones, and may the Lord grant them courage and strength as they share their stories.

Pray for health and protection for Jeff as he travels, and for Deann and Matthew who remain at home in Prague.

Horizons is a teaching resource for youth leaders, developed by CBM Field Staff, Jeff Carter, and it is raising up many new leaders all across the world. Please pray for the continuing translation of German and Slovak versions of Horizons and for the capable (and often overburdened) leaders who are working in these unions.

THE KENNYS: CBM's Africa Team Leaders- have been in Canada on home assignment. Pray that congregants in Ontario and Atlantic Canada will be inspired and continue to support the work of the Kenny’s in Kenya. Pray for wisdom and discernment in the planning for the year ahead.
