Praises:

  1. Kathyhad an amazing trip to Nicaragua where she got to see the Lord work powerfully in 170 women’s lives. The three full day women’s conferences encouraged and challenged these ladies to hold on tight to the “God of Hope’ in all stages and situations of their lives.
  2. Carl’sphysical healing from his surgery is right on track. We are trusting he will be 100% fit for our next trip into Cuba (early November).
  3. In all of the ups and downs in our lives recently, Godhas been so present, so real, speaking words of comfort and truth over us…what a Good Shepherd He is to us all!

 

Prayer Requests:

  1. That reservations and the many details for our Cuba tripwill all come together.
  2. That God will use this trip to encourage and bless church leaders, and celebrate the graduationof students who faithfully completed the mission for restoration courses.
  3. That God would continue to build upon the breakthroughsand decisions the 170 ladies made for Him at the women’s conferences.
  4. That God would help us as we now work out the paying of Carl’s hospital bills. Not an easy process for anyone in these circumstances.

  • Pray for our children and this transition time. Please help them to find friends here in Arkansas.

Mike & Carole

RETURN to ASIA: Pray for our health and completion of all the requirements for us to return to Asia. Pray for us as we are required to quarantine in a government approved hotel for our first 15 days. The quarantine hotel is in a different city than our home. The travel to our home may require a home quarantine. Regardless, pray for us as we settle back into our home. Thailand, like so many other countries, is seeing a massive increase in Covid cases. Domestic airlines are grounded and other measures are in place to address the resurgence. Pray for us as we navigate the current situation.  

HOPE: Hope is starting 11th grade. We are so grateful that she has a great set of teachers for this year. The school will start and remain online throughout August. Pray for Hope to be able to handle her new clases well. With online school and just the challenges of being a teen in high school, please pray for Hope to rely on the Lord and see Him in her circumstances.

ELIJAH: Elijah will be a senior this year at William Carey University. He’s also a new driver and will be driving to college for the first time on August 21. Please pray for Elijah’s travel and adjustment back into college. He wants to pursue family and children counseling. Pray for his planning and preparing for his master’s. 

GABI: Gabi is also in her senior year. She will graduate from Union University as a biology major and then go to Physician Assistant school. Pray for her travel and adjustments back into college, as well as her planning and needs to get into a PA school.

CAROLE: Upon our return to Asia, Carole will continue to work as a 1:1 aide at Hope’s school. However, with the school being online, we don’t know what to expect or how the semester will go. Pray for Carole as she seeks to serve others and respond to opportunities the Lord provides.

MIKE: Mike will be able to continue most of his work online as we see how the Delta variant affects Thailand. At this point, he won’t be able to utilize local events. A Thai church is interested in Mike helping them to begin to reach the Thai community through gaming and gaming communities. This could be delayed because of the need to meet in person and plan. Pray for Mike to have wisdom and creativity in his work.

John & Erin Kloosterhuis
  • In our last update, we asked you to pray that we would find a good therapist for Ezra here in the Czech Republic. Well, God did just that and she is literally the ONLY therapist in the country who specializes in bi-lingual autistic needs. Ezra has been steadily improving over the past few months and we are so grateful! Of course, we are looking at some significant needs in the future for his situation, but God has kept us on a really good path. Pray for us in this continual process of finding the best ways to help Ezra.
  • Pray for Tomáš and Soňa (our neighbors mentioned above) that their interest in the things of God would only increase more and more. Their friendship during this time has been such a big gift to us. Pray for their little daughter as well (she’s the same age as Ezra and he loves her so much)!
  • Erin has been getting sick a lot recently (nothing to do with Covid thankfully) and we really need your prayer. Erin is very tired of dealing with sickness at home and is wanting to be back doing normal life! Pray for her healing and health.
  • The “Josiah Venture Prayer Room” app for iPhone that John designed has continued to be a great way to bring in more and more prayer for God’s work here. We are also hoping to release it for Android soon! Pray for this to go smoothly as well!
  • This week is our “Josiah Venture Media Academy”! We use this time to coach and equip young creatives throughout our organization to engage their peers with the gospel through video, photo, graphic design, social media, etc. Pray for John’s zoom coaching sessions.

  • Cross-cultural, weekly Bible studies – May the Lord work in us to bring maturity but also to bring others into His Kingdom who are seeking.
