Rana Bacana: As a result of over 50 years of civil conflict, Colombia has one of the largest number of displaced people in the world – 7.4 million according to a recent National Geographic article. Many live on the Atlantic coast. Rana Bacana, a partner project of Latin Link, trains local Christians to run a club for the displaced children in their communities. In the clubs, children play, worship and learn the Bible. They are being transformed by the gospel as the leaders are being empowered. Pray that God continues to grow Rana Bacana and that more children and adults will have their lives changed.
Reaching Prisoners: Honduras is in a state of political unrest with protests, riots, looting and violence. Yet God is at work in one of the most corrupt and violent places on earth. There are amazing opportunities to reach prisoners, the police force and the military. More and more police officers have been requesting Bibles. A partnership between the Bible Society in Honduras and the Christian Police Ministry has seen Bible studies established in police stations. There is also an increasing interest in the more formal presence of army chaplains in all the military bases as a result. Over 16,000 police and military are now attending spiritual meetings nationwide. There’s such hunger to study the Bible. At two maximum security prisons in Honduras God has opened the door wide. More than 2,000 maximum security prisoners now have personal Bibles. Praise God that throughout the prison system 10,000 detainees meet for weekly Bible studies.
Bible Poverty: Bible poverty (lack of Bible availability and use) is a real issue in Latin America. Too often believers lack the knowledge and regular use of the Bible to be able to apply it to their lives. Latin Link members are seeking to reduce this problem across the region. This includes doing teaching sessions with church and denominational leaders, but it also includes taking individual opportunities when they arise. For example, while on an evangelism trip in Potosí, Bolivia, Latin Link member Maribel Woodley was able to use time in the kitchen peeling potatoes to help one Quechua woman come back to faith. Pray for all those workers who are tackling Bible poverty in Latin America, and that believers who have strayed will have open hearts to return.
Alagwa of Tanzania: Pray that God’s kingdom would come in power among the Alagwa of Tanzania. May there be Alagwa disciples who make disciples in many villages. For the new Alagwa believers, we ask God that they may have the courage to share the good news of Jesus with their family and friends. Pray for the church in Kwa Madebe, that the believers may grow in faith there. Prat it would be a missionary church, reaching those from all people groups in the community.
