Below are current prayer requests from our ministry team in the Galilee.
Saleem and Andera Hanna - Nazareth
We are looking forward to a new and very exciting year. The developments that have happened in recent years are overwhelming and we give glory to God for that. With this new year come several challenges and financial ones we lack none. Over the years we’ve trusted that the Lord will provide and we ask you to join us in prayer that all funds necessary to continue doing our ministry come in in time. Pray for us as we continue to plan for ministry opportunities like Holiday-Youth-Conference follow-up events and the MDC (Mother’s Day Celebration) next month. We sent out the invitation to the MDC earlier this month and we know the Lord has something new for this event this year. Please pray for it, for mothers and women from all over the country to be able to come and meet Jesus. Also pray that the Lord will provide the necessary funds needed to hold this event and honor God.
Hani and Shifa Billan - Cana of Galilee
During the past few years the Lord has given us favor, as a church, in the eyes of many in our village. New doors are being open for us and we are excited about how the Lord wants to use us. There is, however, a great deal of unrest in the village in general, and more so recently than any time before.
Also, our daughter, Marlain, will be traveling to Northern Ireland on the 20th of this month with Youth With A Mission for a Discipleship Training School. She will be there for six months, so please keep her in your prayers. We are honored and proud that our children are seeking to serve the Lord from a young age.
Ibrahim and Ekhlas Sadran - Cana of Galilee
Going into February we are thankful for your continued support and prayer which strengthen our arms in ministry. We ask you to pray with us for our daughter Heba who not only celebrates her birthday today but will soon be traveling to the USA to receive special training to develop her musical talent and come back to continue to honor God with it here in Cana. Also, please continue to pray for the youth ministry which is blooming; the Lord is doing wonderful things among the young generation. And pray for physical rest as ministry demands are only growing. We want to be faithful to the Lord in all things, even in preserving our bodies, and honor Him in all we do.
Hanna and Lina Eid - Eilabun
We thank the Lord for bringing in new people to the church and for touching their life. Please keep them in your prayers as we continue to minister to them and disciple them to walk in His steps. Also pray for the women’s ministry which Lina leads and for the children's ministry where we’re needing new workers to step up. Also pray for the worship team as we set a goal to train the younger generation in music and worship to praise the Lord for years to come. We have also been approached by the village counsel, for the second consecutive year, to participate in the “Good Works” program. We will be laying down tiles in the home of a widow. Pray that the Lord will give us grace in the eyes of those who see us and that He will empower us to be good witnesses of His Gospel.
Bshara and Randa Khazen - Beine
The Lord has brought a lot of wonderful things into the ministry we do in both Be’ine and Rameh and we are amazed as His wonderful work. Ministry still keeps us busy most of the time and we ask you to pray with us for special wisdom for ministry especially finding the right time for women’s ministry.
Elias and Rose Obeid - Tura'an
We thank the Lord for being with us in the 'Seeing With New Eyes' event earlier this month. Despite the challenges we faced we had more women show up than expected. Right now we are focusing our eyes on the 2018 annual Mother’s Day Celebration. We are excited about it as always and have made most of the plans already. We know that everything we do is meaningless unless it brings glory to God, so please pray with us that God will be glorified in this event. Also pray that He will continue touching the hearts of the women and giving them healing as He’s done from the beginning 17 years ago.
