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

Canadian Baptist Ministries

CASA DE LA AMISTAD: Please pray for the children that attend Casa de la Amistad (Friendship House) in Bolivia, which provides support to children of incarcerated parents. Through CBM's support, 120 children and youth receive food, tutoring and counselling. The house provides them with a safe and caring environment outside of the prison walls, as some of the children have to live with their incarcerated parents. Recently, three little girls (ages five, six and seven) had to be taken into protective custody because they were violated in the prison. Please pray for God to heal, restore and protect these girls in the midst of this devastating circumstance. Please also pray for their two-year-old sister who was found suffering from malnutrition. May God watch over the children of Casa de la Amistad and move on the hearts of local leaders to establish better protective measures for vulnerable children.

REFUGEE WOMEN: Please pray for a Bible study that CBM Field Staff Mireille Haddad is leading with Iraqi refugee women in Lebanon. As part of her role with a local Christian organization, Mireille hosts two Bible study groups every week, with 40-60 women attending each. "As these women have fled their country and left everything behind, including their dignity and hope for a better future, this is a great time for them to meet with God and to experience life-changing transformation," Mireille and her husband Elie shared in a recent update. "It is such a blessing to be working with them and introducing them to the message of the Gospel." Please pray that these women would find a renewed sense of hope and belonging as they continue to meet weekly and experience God's love.

NEW STUDENTS: Please pray for Lewis and Felain Lam, CBM Field Staff based in Germany, as they prepare to reach out to new Chinese students this fall. The Lams minister to the large number of students from mainland China studying in German universities, bringing the gospel to these future professionals who return to China upon graduation. The Lams are currently preparing for a new student orientation in October, which will provide basic supplies, resources and services to better support Chinese students. Please pray that the orientation would go smoothly and that the students would sense the love of Jesus through the work of the ministry. The Lams also request prayer for their physical, mental and spiritual health to be renewed as they continue to meet the growing demands of the student ministry.

CBM Partners in Mission

THE CARTERS: Based in Prague, and partnering with the European Baptist Federation. Jeff’s work with youth leaders requires him to travel extensively. Pray for safe travels for him, and for strength and health for Deann and Matthew who remain home in Prague. Zachary spent the summer in Atlantic Canada, working with children and youth at West-End Baptist Church in Halifax. He will be returning to Crandall in the fall for his third year of studies.

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: Africa Team Leaders -The Kennys hosted a short-term mission team, the Springforth youth team along with their three team leaders. The Kenny children joined the group to participate in the Kamp Tumaini program for children affected by HIV/AIDS. They worked with approximately 450 secondary school students and the local Guardians of Hope members that are caring for thirty orphans in their community-the village of Mivumoni.

The Kennys will be returning to Canada in August to connect with their partners in mission. Tristan Kenny graduated from grade twelve and will be furthering his studies at Acadia University, arriving with his family in August. Please pray for journeying mercies for the Kennys, and that Tristan will settle in well at University.
