The speaking engagements Kathy and I had in December all went very well, or so we have been told. The financial needs we had to help keep the ministry in Cuba going forward this coming year all came through, and the ministries of so many churches we are connected to in Cuba, all had incredible praises from having the joy of celebrating baptisms of new believers and amazing evangelistic services over the Christmas period.

 

Prayer Requests:

  1. For plans to come together for visiting churches and supporters during January and February.
  2. For the details of our next trip to Cuba in early March to all come together and have the Lord’s favor and blessing.
  3. For the followup that churches in Cuba will make to people who attended Christmas outreach services to be fruitful.

Prayer Requests

  • needed to raise about $10,000 for the four of us to go on this trip, and the Lord faithfully provided! Thank you all so much for your outpouring of love and support as we go with the Gospel to different areas of Thailand. There are some specific ways I would like to ask you all to pray over the next two weeks:
  • My precious friend is leaving her 4 beautiful daughters (ages 6 and under) at home with their dad in order to go on this trip. We are so blessed that God made it possible for her to go, but she and her children will need prayer. She is relying on the Lord to care for her children while she’s away. Her Abba, Father, is more than able – pray for continued great faith in her! Also pray for her daughters, as they’ve never been away from their mom for a long period of time, and for her husband, that God’s grace would be sufficient for him.
  • Eric & his family, that the Lord would give Kimberly all she needs while Eric is away and that his children would step up as their father is away.
  • For God to give us opportunities to share the Gospel with many who have never heard. From the moment we get to the airport, until we return to our homes. Ask the Holy Spirit to keep us alert and sober-minded. Pray for souls to be saved!

  • Healthy partnerships with the believers we have plans to meet with and equip. That our brothers and sisters would be encouraged in what God has called them to. Pray they would grow in discipleship, faithfulness, and obedience to the call to be ambassadors for Christ.

  • Pray for good health and protection from sickness.
  • Pray for no issues with our travels, as we will be doing a lot of it.

 

    Kevin & Maicey Jobe

    -Kevin will go on a trip this month, please pray for his safety and our family as we go on without him.

    -Pray for guidance on what accomodations we need as we move into Alaska and as we travel to the areas we need to get to.

    -Pray for the continual health of the kids.

    -Pray that God will prepare hearts of people in Alaska for the gospel and that he would work in their lives to reconcile them to himself.
