Our team in Ethiopia has shared these three key prayer points for the ministry with the Awi people through agriculture:

Praise God for the Ethiopian Leadership He has raised up to continue to manage the 5Fs project’s operations! Pray for them as they pursue their own vision and mission within the 3 year project agreement they have with the Ethiopian government.

Part of this project’s renewed vision is to go deeper into the Awi countryside in partnership with other believers to raise up local Farmer Promoters (experts) for many of our technical agricultural development initiatives, and who may also be open to receiving and sharing the Gospel within their Awi communities.

For the rural, Awi, landless youth who seem most eager to adapt and change both in business/farming practices and spiritual/relational practices.

Thank you for your interest in Hidden Abilities. We value and believe in the power of prayer.

So, if you pray, please pray...

  • That God would raise up a missionary physical therapist who has a heart for children with special needs who can also be the project manager for Hidden Abilities.
  • That Hidden Abilities will be a place where children experience quality treatment, love and respect and will learn about Jesus’ love for them
  • That parents will be patient as the children overcome their physical challenges so that they develop to their full potential

Pray for SIM’s administrative personnel - people like Veronica who are often making big sacrifices in order to ensure the work of bringing good news to people who haven’t heard can go on.

It’s often really hard for people providing essential infrastructure services (like accounting and personnel management) to raise sufficient funds. Pray that donors will understand the necessity for these roles and give enthusiastically.

Pray for new admin personnel to join the work of SIM. In many regions one or two personnel are managing the needs of hundreds of cross-cultural workers. They need more help!
