Please Pray today!

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

Tomorrow marks the start of our Turka adventure and we need your prayer! We will be traveling in 2 trucks and a trailer from Ouagadougou to Banfora, about an 8 hour drive.  We’ll be leaving at about 3:00 am CST (9:00 here)  Would you pray with us:

Lord, we pray for safe travels.  We pray that you would protect the evangelism teams, keeping the drivers awake and alert, and the vehicles in perfect working order.  We pray for continued peace in Ouagadougou.
We ask that you would give supernatural wisdom to the leaders, Joel and Didier, as they make decisions about the outreaches.
We pray that Jeremie would have favor with local authorities for which schools we can distribute gifts and where we can do the evangelisms.
But we pray especially for the Turka people, that You would begin to prepare their hearts for the Gospel!  We pray against every barrier and hindrance, for no weapon formed against us shall prosper.  We resist the enemy’s plans to keep the Turka blinded and bound from the Gospel and any plans to discourage us.  Lord, come and glorify Your Name!  Amen.

Prayer points:

  • For clear minds, that nothing will be forgotten or left behind as we head out in the morning.
  • That the school directors, mayor’s office and school authorities will not hinder us at all.
  • That the local pastors (Mossi and Joula people) will take responsibility for these outreaches and gain a heart for their Turka neighbors.

Thank you for your prayer!  Pray hard and pray often and we will see miracles!

    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
