Papua New Guinea

~Shawn & Bethany Waugh - We have been having a dry spell lately, and our water tank was getting very low. One night we prayed for rain with our sons while putting them to bed. The very next evening we had a good, hard rain!
-Not only did it provide much needed water, but it also provided an opportunity to talk to our boys about how God answers prayer. God could have said no or waited, but He answered our prayers with a “yes” and sent rain! We thank God for his provision and timing!
-Our children started school this week, and they are adjusting to a new curriculum and schedule. Pray for smooth transition and great school year. Please also pray for Erica Jenkins and me (Bethany) as we tag team homeschooling our kids.

The Americas Region

~David & Debbie Hawk - We praise God for an excellent Community Transformation Workshop presented by Arturo Cuba in Phoenix, Arizona, which was attended by David Hawk, Terry Hawk, many of our American Indian Field missionaries, and some of the Native Americans with whom we work.
-This has been an abnormally dry rainy season in Honduras, and the larger cities are without water, which is impacting churches and ministries. An annual pastors’ training event has already been postponed and could possibly be cancelled if conditions do not improve. Please pray for rain!
