Please remember our Free Methodist schools in Africa this week. Pray specifically for the Great Commission Bible School in Malawi and the FM nursery and primary school in the southwestern area of Cameroon (the Anglophone region). Ask God to provide continued growth and learning in these schools.

A number of those who graduated from the Wesley Missionary Institute earlier this year are launching new work throughout West Africa. Pray for these new missionaries. Also, pray for the current class at the Wesley Missionary Institute. Ask the Father to develop the heart of a missionary in each of them. To see the latest report from the Wesley Missionary Institute, click here.
Praise the Lord! In Creative Access Asia-CA, 19 students recently graduated from the "Followers Class." They completed 31 courses over four years. Ask the Father to bless these graduates as they go out and train many other groups.

Creative Access Asia-PN has experienced unprecedented flooding. Sixty-five percent of the crops have been swept away, 3 million livestock died, one-third of the country is underwater, and 33 million people have been displaced. Many in our FM network have experienced catastrophic losses. Pray for God's peace, protection and provision in this desperate situation.
Please be in prayer for affiliate missionaries Michael and Tanya Mendakoff. The conflict in Ukraine necessitated their departure from the creative access country they were serving. Please pray for their transition back to the U.S. as they settle in Seattle. Ask the Lord to provide a more permanent housing situation and help their children as they adjust to school.

Praise the Lord! On September 9, International Missionary Gerry McNamara and two colleagues delivered about 2,000 pounds of food and supplies to three locations in Ukraine. Please remember the millions of internally displaced Ukrainians; many live and sleep in churches, restaurants and campgrounds. As colder weather approaches, pray for ongoing relief efforts and an end to the war.

Rejoice and give thanks - more than 6,615 people have come to Christ through Community Church Planting networks across Latin America, and transformation is taking place in established churches too! Pray for God's continued provision to provide for and invest in leaders who are planting churches.

The Roller and Jewell families are both currently relying on one vehicle, often an essential ministry tool. The vehicle has repeatedly been in and out of the shop with an electrical issue. Pray the mechanics will be able to resolve the situation soon.
This week join us in praying for a fruitful evangelism ministry in Egypt that reaches out to at-risk young men, many suffering from addictions. Pray for the leaders as they listen, build relationships and share the good news of Jesus.
FMWM gives thanks for the life and service of former missionary Philip Capp who passed away on September 3, 2022, in Yakima, Washington. Phil and his wife, Carmena, served in Zimbabwe and South Africa from 1958 to 1994. Please be in prayer for the Capp family.
Europe has officially become a new region for ICCM. Abi Santana has been named the Regional Coordinator for Europe. Abi and her husband, Raul, serve as international missionaries in Spain. Please join us in praying for Abi as ICCM addresses the current and future needs of thousands of displaced children across Europe.
