American Indian Field

~Steve & Debbie Cartwright - Please pray for a young mom named Louisa. She was struck by a car while walking along the road, and subsequently hit by two more cars. After a week in a coma, she is talking and starting to heal. It is a miracle she is alive.
-Please pray that she will come back to God in this crisis, that her body will heal, and that her small children will sense God's comfort.
-Pray for the Siloam Church Christmas program, which is held every year on Christmas Eve. It is a big outreach to the surrounding community. After the program we have food and gifts for the children. For many people, this is the only time in the year they come to church.

The Americas Region

~David & Debbie Hawk - Praise the Lord for a good trip to Argentina and Brazil! We had a positive experience in Brazil exploring a new ministry partnership. We are now working on a Memorandum of Understanding to establish a new partnership with this organization. Thank you for praying for us as we traveled!
-Please continue to pray for the situation in Bolivia. New presidential elections will be held. Pray for continued safety for our missionaries and Bolivian pastors, and for peace for the country.
