Ministry Prayer Needs

SENT - Right Away
DCE Deb Stark of Midland, Mich. wrote to tell us how "blessed and uplifted" she and two fellow members of her church were at Lutheran Hour Ministries' SENT Outreach Conference last month in Detroit; she also recounted how they were SENT to witness—right there at the conference. "We met a man who was homeless and hungry as we returned from dinner one night," Deb says. "We shared our pizza—and our faith; then we prayed with him. Please include Vloyd in your prayers." Join us in praying for Vloyd—as well as for everyone at the Conference who was reminded that we have all been SENT to share the Gospel with others.

LHM Ministry Centers in South America Respond to Flooding
Flooding has impacted families and normal activities in areas of Argentina and Paraguay. Lutheran Hour Ministries' centers in both countries have been involved in efforts to assist people in returning to their homes and getting back to normal living. Give God thanks for the opportunities our ministries and their supporters have had for sharing the love of God and the message of salvation. Please also pray for the people affected by these disasters.

Lebanon Volunteer Seeks Refuge, Continues Witness
We have reported frequently on our Lebanon ministry center's care for Syrians affected by the ongoing violence in that country—and on the volunteer work of a young Syrian woman we call Zahra, who, after recovering from a vicious attack in Aleppo, continued to reach out with the Gospel in her hometown in northeastern Syria. When terrorist militants recently took the town over, Zahra and others fled to Turkey, where they are currently living in a refugee community. After being out of touch for time, Zahra contacted LHM's Lebanon center—and requested Bibles to hand out to her fellow refugees! Please pray for an end to the violence in Syria. Ask God to encourage and strengthen Christ-followers like Zahra as they continue to make God's love known to those who desperately need it.
