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

Canadian Baptist Ministries

SEMINARY STUDENTS: CBM Field Staff Emad and Almess Botros serve at the Arab Baptist Theological Seminary (ABTS) in Lebanon. In a recent update, the Botroses requested prayer for newcomer students at ABTS: "We have a promising group this year. Pray for the new first year students as they settle in at ABTS. Pray for peace as they adjust to a new country and a new academic year, as well as meet new people from different backgrounds. May God use this time to shape their lives and to grow through these new relationships." Please also pray for Emad, as he will be teaching two courses this semester and working on his PhD studies. May God use these opportunities so that students "may be filled with the knowledge of God's will in all spiritual wisdom and understanding" (Col. 1:9), shared the Botroses.

FIELD STAFF IN THE PHILIPPINES: CBM Field Staff Michael and Melanie Waddell are based in the Philippines, serving in the area of Marketplace Ministries. Working with local partners, they assist in the formation of Christian discipleship movements within the context of the Southeast Asia marketplace. Please pray for the Waddells as they continue to learn the culture and language of the Philippines. This week, Michael is with CBM Field Staff Emo Yango in Thailand attending a work consultation on ministering to people of other faiths. Please pray that this would be a fruitful time of learning and networking. Also, please remember their children in your prayers, as they continue to adjust to life in the Philippines.

ERADICATING PROVERTY: Please join us in prayer this week as we remember those who are suffering due to the effects of poverty around the world. October 17 marked the 25th anniversary of the International Day for the Eradication of Poverty. The theme this year was "Answering the Call of October 17 to end poverty: A path toward peaceful and inclusive societies". Please pray that government leaders and church communities would be moved with compassion to serve those living in extreme poverty around the world. May the barriers of discrimination and stigma be broken down, so that impoverished people would feel valued, included and respected. Also, please pray for the beneficiaries we seek to serve in our global project areas, as well as our field staff and local partners who are working on the frontlines – serving as the hands and feet of Jesus. 

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 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.
