~Mike and Donna Brown are praising the Lord for Mike and Nathan's two week trip to the southern Bolivian states of Chuquisaca and Potosi. They visited eight different communities. Mike preached eight times, saw some 30 first-time converts and baptized four. Nathan's juggling skills captured the interest of the young and old and opened the door to share Scripture with the student body in three public schools opening a door of ministry for the local churches near them.


~David and Debbie Hawk are praising the Lord for their trip to Paraguay for the DNA Vision Conference attended by 40 adults who expressed excitement over helping to transform their families, communities, churches and nation. Please pray for IMPACT, a retreat for the directors of each of WGM's 23 fields and for the 4/14 teacher trainings and camps taking place in Honduras this summer.

Papua New Guinea

~Butch and Leatha Jenkins need prayer for their family members that will be traveling this summer, for peace during the PNG election season, for the new students needed for the coming January term and for a fresh wind of the Spirit to sweep over the villages, churches and church leaders in each of the nine PNG districts.
~Jim and Becka Johnson must raise $583 in monthly support and have their work permits renewed before they can return to PNG. Please pray that God will meet these needs. They are thankful that Jennifer has completed her first year of college and is home for the summer.
~Seth and Veronica Porter are praising the Lord that in the last month Seth has helped two local churches to put up the frames for their buildings and half the roofs. They must now wait until the resources are available to purchase more building materials. Please pray for Seth's preaching ministry in the Montanda district and especially his opportunity to speak at the Nipa High School on June 11. This is a golden opportunity to share the gospel with so many young people.
~Shawn and Bethany Waugh are so thankful for the healing to Shawn's back following his surgery. Pray for them as they schedule services and make plans for their HMA beginning this summer.


~Weadette Burge is thankful for a productive month of May which included the DNA VISION conference with 67 attending and the completion of a song book now available to their churches.

Texas/Mexico Border

~John and Priscilla Kunkle need prayer for their ministry in our camps and churches in Ohio during this summer.

U.S. Hispanic Ministries

~Dan and Peggy Zimmerman are thanking the Lord for three new people attending the Bible Study at Karl Road, for Santiago's return to Joan Heights and for two ladies that have started to attend there. They are also grateful for another group of three they met at the flea market that now have been to the food pantry and for a former member of their Whitehall group now attending at Joan Heights. Please pray for their continued outreach efforts in North Columbus, Washington CH and the Hilltop area of west Columbus. Pray that so many they have met at the flea market will visit the Bible Study and the services at Joan Heights.
