#3 of 9 Daily Prayers for the Turka Trip

Written by Joel Hayslip. Posted in Evangelism Teams, Unreached People

Sorry guys. I said it was an 8-day trip, but I started you praying a day early (for safe travels). Oops.. So I’ve changed it to 9 Daily prayers so it includes each of the 8 villages. Here’s today’s prayer-

Dear God, let the Spirit of the Lord be upon Joel and the team, and anoint them to proclaim good news to the poor. Send them to Kolo-kolo to proclaim freedom for the prisoners and recovery of sight for the blind, to set the oppressed free, and to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor there.  Prepare the village leaders to receive our team with joy and hospitality.  Use the dramas on hygiene to really help change the children’s lifestyles.  Use the kindness and love at the gift distribution to break off the hardness of the adults’ hearts and become soft and able to accept Christ as Savior at the night-time evangelism. Lord, draw the hearts of Kolo-kolo to You and we pray for a church to be planted there, in Jesus’ name, Amen.

Praise report from yesterday’s prayer:

Right after Joel and the guys set up all the equipment for the evangelism, it started to rain and everyone disappeared.  They had to pack everything up and wait it out. But the great part is that when the rain stopped and they set up again, about 600 people came back and got to hear the Gospel through skits, puppet shows and film.  Praise God they came back!-Daniel got in on time with all his bags and is so happy to be here after the 2 day delay in Philadelphia. So glad he’s finally here.

Prayer points:

* Tomorrow they go to a village called Kolo-kolo.  This is the sound a turkey makes, so this is the word for “turkey.” Please pray for Turkey Village 🙂 All the other villages except Fabidougou and this one have churches.  Please pray for a church to be planted in Kolo-kolo.

* The team of doctors who will be driving down on Sunday, both of their vehicles have just broken down.  Please pray for quick repairs and protection from any more attacks from the enemy.  thanks!

    Dear Joel an Heidi,
    Enjoyed the video and seeing the work that you are doing there in Burkino Faso. The children are so wonderful to see in their everyday life. Their smiles are infectious. Andrea is preparing to come and excited about the trip and the team from Newspring that she will be working with. Bless you both and your boys for being there and sharing the Love of God! We love you! Veda and the whole Byers Family 🙂

    Was praying for your family and ministry this morning. Was moved by the video ..the responce of the children to the gifts and the love you are showing them. Your good looking boys have grown so much since I saw them last at Bethel San Jose. God continue to bless and use you.

    Reading about your work is very exciting, I thank God we can be a small part. May the God we serve do”exceedingly abuntantly” more than we ask or imagine according to His great power that works in us!!

    I “amen” what Tammy shared! When you chart it out you can see the way that the Lord took a small seed and caused it to grow. Only the Father knows what is in store as you keep sowing faithfully. That 1,000,000 child mark by 2020 may have been a little pessimistic! We’ll keep praying for you guys and for full-blown revival in Burkina. – Dad

    This is so exciting to see your faithfulness year after year to reach out in the name of Jesus to the children in Burkina Faso!

    It is truly the LORD at work to keep growing the seed planting opportunities and to partner up with OCC – this Saturday (Sept. 15th) in St. Joseph, MO there will be a local “Count Down Event” to share with area churches and groups with sharing this type of testimony – which will really encourage them to pack more shoeboxes – to touch more children to hear the gospel! please join me to pray for this special event!
    keep on blessing those around you – a little bit of love goes a long long way =D
