Michael Tipton HeadshotDear Prayer Supporters,

Thank you for your fervent Great Commission prayers! The prayers of the Church are the primary fuel for all missionary endeavors. Please join us in prayer for the needs of our missionaries below. Passionate prayer changes the world.

Trusting Him,

Michael Tipton
General Missionary Superintendent

American Indian Field

~Steve & Debbie Cartwright - We praise God that we had a large crowd attend the Christmas Eve Nativity program. Over 120 people enjoyed the children and their presentation.
-We praise God for the 50 people who attended the SOARathon on December 8th. We had several good testimonies shared throughout the event. (SOAR stands for Servant-Overcomer Addiction Recovery, and it is a ministry to those recovering from addiction.)
-Pray for the people who attend the SOAR ministry and live on the Gila River Reservation, as some continue to struggle in their sobriety.
-Pray for Debbie as she adds another job to her roles and responsibilities. She is training to be the Field Treasurer and will fully assume the job in a few months.


~Mike & Donna Brown - We are overwhelmed by the prayers and support for Donna who is out of town all this week working in a special eye clinic with Medical Ministry International. This ministry is helping hundreds of people with both their physical and spiritual vision!
-We are also thankful for the prayers for Mike as he teaches both at Santa Cruz Christian Learning Center (SCCLC) and Berea Bible Seminary.
-Please pray for the SCCLC high school students as they are away on their annual camping trip. The theme for this year is “Destinations”, focusing on how the decisions we make in life will lead to specific destinations. We are praying that many of these students choose God and realize His will for their lives.

Special Assignment

~Butch & Leatha Jenkins - We are excited about the 2019 Mission Minded Men/Men With Vision Annual Project. The 2019 Annual Project is building married student housing at Christian Union Bible College (CUBC) in Papua New Guinea (PNG).
-We will be heavily involved in this project, as Butch serves as the Project Coordinator for Men With Vision.
-Please pray for the MMM work teams needed this year, in the late fall, to go to PNG. Pray for people to start sensing a call to volunteer, commit, and prepare.

The Americas Region

~David & Debbie Hawk, Assistant Regional Directors - Many of our churches throughout The Americas Region will have events focused on the institution of marriage and family around Valentine’s Day. In other cultures, Valentine’s Day is more about deep friendships and relationships than what we are accustomed to celebrating here in the US. This gives our churches the opportunity to celebrate marriage and deeper relationships in a unique way.
-Please be in prayer as we have two missionary couples from our region attending the Work4aLiving training event in South Africa. This training will help our missionaries be better informed on how to help people understand the dignity of work and gain skills for employability.
