“Please pray as COVID-19 cases here in our area are still surging,” requests Nenita del Mundo, leader of Student Missionary Outreach. “Last May 30 was supposed to be the celebration of our 40th Church Anniversary. But it was postponed because a member of our Church died of COVID-19. Since some members of the Church had a direct contact with the deceased member, there were church members who were under quarantine. We are back to our virtual church services and Bible studies. Our Church activities and fellowship meet at the SMO Centre. We shared the same facility. Because of this, we also at SMO were quite limited in doing in-person activities. Please pray that the in-person meet-up will be back soon.”

Bijaya took a Christian Leadership Training course from Gospel Outreach Centre this year and testified: “My father is a pastor, and he wanted me to take part in this training. I did not want to join but my dad kept insisting so I begrudgingly obeyed. But I am glad I attended. This training has brought a big change in my heart, mind and life. I learned in a classroom setting and gained hands-on ministry experience as I observed pastors and leaders serve their local church. My respect for pastors and leaders, which I had little of before, has grown tenfold. What grueling work they have. When I get back home, instead of being one more ungrateful soul, I will assist my dad as he serves the bride of Christ. I thank the Lord for providing me with this opportunity. Thank you, GOC and everyone who contributed to this training.”
“A new and encouraging development in the work is that a Christian leader in Peru who participated in one of our missionary training programs when he was a young man, has recently contacted us, inviting us to participate in his weekly radio program, nurturing missionary vision, and stimulating prayer on behalf of the unreached tribes of Peru,” reports Segadores. “As a result, Peter Hocking [leader of Segadores] has begun giving short devotionals on the radio program, teaching on the Biblical basis of missions. In each program, the brother promotes prayer for an unreached tribe, using the information that we have provided on our prayer cards. Thank God for this new open door, and pray that He would use this radio program to raise up many intercessors and more Peruvian missionaries for the tribes of Peru.”

Bombay Revival Prayer Band’s Sharon English School, which operates for its orphans and destitute children and for village children in the surrounding area, and which is also the only local Christian school, needs a second building soon. The present school building has very limited classrooms, insufficient for the growing demand from Nursery, Kindergarten, and from Grades 1 to 10. Hence there is a huge need to build another building with eight classrooms on the campus, where space is available. This project consists of building the ground and two more floors, with eight classrooms total. Praise God that generous Intercede prayer partners have provided $50,000 for this project, leaving $102,000 left to raise.

“Although the local government may have closed the door for churches to meet in person with 100 percent capacity, yet, God has opened windows of opportunities through feeding programs to children on the streets, Bible studies to people in their homes, in empty spaces, even in shaded areas,” reports Nenita del Mundo, leader of Student Missionary Outreach. “Hence, a pioneering church was started in Handumanan, which they call Felisa Christian Church. This new church is led by Pastor Junefer Oyanib. Junefer was an alumnus of SMO’s Bible Training Institute. Together with his new members, they hope to build a place where they can meet for worship every Sunday. SMO had been instrumental for them to purchase a small lot on which they are now building a structure.”
