SGA Prayer and Praise Items
23—Summer camp ministries continue in Muslim-dominated Central Asia, the Caucasus, and in Israel albeit very discreetly. Pray for the salvation of many children (and adults) as they hear of Christ’s love for them.
24—Continue to intercede in prayer for SGA’s board of directors, led by Warner Tillman. Ask God to grant them wisdom and direction in long range ministry planning.
25—We rejoice at the opportunity to support students at Israel College of the Bible, and assist the congregations where they serve and fellowship. Ask the Lord to open even more opportunities to serve in the Holy Land for the sake of the Gospel.
26—Please lift in prayer SGA’s international offices in Canada, New Zealand, Australia, and the United Kingdom. We praise the Lord for the opportunities He grants them to serve evangelical churches in the CIS and in Eastern Europe.
27—SGA’s senior missionaries—Andrew Semenchuk, Ruth Deneyka Erdel, and Florence Daneliuk—are deeply thankful for the prayers and support of our faithful partners. Join us in praising and thanking God for their decades of service to Christ!
28—Pray for Bret Laird, assistant to SGA president Bob Provost. Bret served in Ukraine at Odessa Seminary for ten years prior to returning stateside to serve. Also pray for his wife Katey and their four children.
29—Many of SGA’s partners have advised us that they are including our ministry in their wills and estate plans, desiring to have kingdom impact after they have gone to be with the Lord. We are thankful and humbled to be a trusted resource and legacy for these dear brothers and sisters.
30—SGA is in need of reprinting Bibles and other Christian literature that have been depleted in the past couple of years, especially in Ukraine. Join us in asking the Lord for the funds to produce these materials for evangelism and Bible training.
31—Reflection: We close July with the glorious assurance of the Apostle John ... we have an Advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous; and He Himself is the propitiation for our sins; and not for ours only, but also for those of the whole world (1 John 2:1, 2).
