Weekly Prayer Requests

Greetings!

Thank you for your investment in praying for the ministry of CCI. 

Here are this week's prayer requests.
NORTHERN INDIA
Please pray for the CCI teams in Northern India. They were attacked by Hindus on December 11. The CCI teams were arrested and fined with a "conversion" charge.

Please pray for these suffering brothers and sisters in Northern India. Pray that the Lord will strengthen them as they continue to face an increased amount of violence and threats. Please also pray for those who persecute the church – that they will be transformed by the love of Jesus and be granted true repentance.
NEW ZEALAND
In November, Auckland and Waikato areas went back into lockdown, meaning all CCI classes are now being conducted via Zoom, and two graduations had to be postponed until early 2022. Pray for the students in Auckland and Waikato to have clear minds and a continued dedication to learn via the online platform. And for the graduates to keep their minds fixed on Him as they wait for graduation to acknowledge their accomplishments.

It is the end of the year for CCI classes. Numbers in the classes have increased despite the lockdowns. Praise the Lord. "A wise man will hear and will increase learning, and a man of understanding shall attain unto wise counsel" Proverbs 1:5
PHILIPPINES
Please pray for our team and friends on Bohol. Our Camp Karis was devastated by Typhoon Odette on Sunday. Pray for the Camp Karis staff and other disaster victims to stand strong in faith in God and know that the Lord is our present help even in times of great trouble. He’s not far away but right there with us. (Psalm 46:1)
HOME GOING
Pastor Ed Edosur passed away on Sunday. He was one of our team members in the Philippines and was a wonderful example of Christ-likeness. He loved his family, the Lord, and the Church. Please pray for pastor Ed’s family and friends as they grieve the loss of their loved one. May they celebrate his long and productive life as a faithful servant of the Lord.
CCI
Praise the Lord that the Double It Matching Gift campaign recently had another generous donor who increased the goal from $26,000 to $46,000. We rejoice that the Lord has provided these additional funds to help us accelerate CCI's DOUBLE IT campaign and to double our current 10,000 trained multiplying leaders to 20,000!
PRAISE THE LORD JESUS for hearing your prayers and answering them according to His will. PRAISE THE LORD JESUS for supplying the needed financial support for the CCI national workers to carry on and expand this ministry in their countries.

May your prayers be heard and answered with the power of the Lord Jesus Christ. Have a Merry Christmas!
Grace and Peace,
