Please Pray #2 of 8 Daily Prayers for our Turka Trip

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

Please would you read this and pray this prayer for Day 2 of 8 of our ministry trip among the Turka people:

Lord, You love the Turka people.  I pray for the gift distribution and the evangelism tomorrow in Belega-dougou that will all be done in the Turka language (which never happens in that region) that You will use it to show them that You came for EVERY people, tribe and tongue, even the precious Turka.  Let Your truth resonate in the souls of the children and the gathered crowd as they hear the Good News in their own heart-language for the first time, in Jesus’ name, Amen.


Praise report from yesterday’s prayer:

-God kept Joel and his team safe driving all day to Banfora.  There was a large student protest that blocked the entire highway and stopping Joel’s cars on the road.  Thank God it dissipated in only 10 min.
-Jeremie got permission from the mayors and school inspectors to do the gift distributions and evangelism.  Praise God for favor!

More Prayer points for Thursday:

  • This is the largest school we’ll be going to (615 kids).  Pray that the gift distribution would be organized and quick, and there would be no pushing or shoving, and no distractions, in Jesus’ name
  • Pray for Daniel who is still stuck at some airport because of major delays caused by storms in America.  He should get to Burkina Thurs. afternoon by God’s grace

    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
