American Indian Field

~Steve and Debbie Cartwright - We are finishing up a week with a work team from Circleville First Church. Pray that they have strength to complete their work and for traveling mercies as they return home.
-Pray for upcoming summer camps on the American Indian Field. Teen Camp is June 24-28; Elementary Camp for 4th-6th graders is July 1-5, and Elementary Camp for 1st-3rd graders is July 8-12.


~Mike and Donna Brown - Praise the Lord for recent opportunities to preach in our churches. This past Sunday (June 10th), Mike was privileged to speak at two different churches.
-Mike has been invited to preach at another church this coming Sunday morning.
-Our constant prayer is to be used by God to encourage the believers and to help bring sinners to salvation.
-We attended a wonderful graduation ceremony of the Santa Cruz Christian Learning Center. One of the graduates was a WGM missionary kid (an “MK”) whose family left for the U.S. to begin Homeland Ministry Assignment (HMA) this past Friday. Pray for each of our MKs, especially those in transition and those who will soon be entering college.
-The present seminary class that Mike is teaching wraps up in two weeks. Pray for the students as they finish up their assignments and prepare for the upcoming final exam.


~Tim and Aleyda Spetnagel - Praise the Lord for a growing ministry in the village of La Bonanza. Several new people are attending ministries there.
-Continue to pray for the nursing school (IETI) as they work to move from provisional approval to full accreditation. Aleyda serves as Director of IETI, and is leading the accreditation process.
-Pray for our entire family as we continue to battle various illnesses. Tim and Aleyda are recovering from a virus. Our sons, Max and Lucas, continue to battle fevers, and our son, Timothy, is battling ear infections. Pray for strength and health for our family.
-Pray for our ministry support team. We have seen a decline in giving these past three months. Pray that the Lord would raise up several new ministry partners.
