Urgent Prayer Request

Edwin Avilez and his family

Edwin Avilez and his family

Last week we had a message from Gloria, our Honduran director, of a shooting that took place in front of Pastor Edwin’s church in Chamelecon.  He is a GLOMOS graduate, held a class there last year and this and hosted our first graduation from that town last October.  Eight were wounded, one has already died and four are in critical condition. Several of the wounded are part of Edwin’s church, including his worship leader.  

Please pray for healing, for protection, for justice, recognising too that behind all this is spiritual warfare, that requires the spiritual armor of God.  Let’s join together in asking God to do a miracle in the midst of this horrific situation.  Thank you so much.  As more information becomes available, we will keep you posted.

 8 Stay alert! Watch out for your great enemy, the devil. He prowls around like a roaring lion, looking for someone to devour. 9 Stand firm against him, and be strong in your faith. Remember that your family of believers all over the world is going through the same kind of suffering you are. I Peter 5:8-9.  

Please also keep Gloria in your prayers.  Violence rates in Honduras have become so bad that she and her husband recently made the difficult decision to evacuate their children to friends in the USA.  They took them to The States, got them into new schools, said goodbye to them, and then flew back to Honduras without them.

Gloria remarked, “everyone keeps saying to me, ‘why are you going back to Honduras’…’you are crazy to go back’, but I reply ‘We feel God has a job for us to do…there’s lots of work to do’”.

Please pray for this faithful family.  Pray that God would protect them, and that He would reward them for their faithfulness.  Pray that He would multiply their efforts and that as a result, He would build His Kingdom.
