Riverside Missions Prayer Requests

Nov. 16,2017
Taiwan: Chris & Jamie O'Dell
Praise God...The Aroma vision has always been to help people SMELL, BECOME, and SPREAD the aroma of Christ. In order to SPREAD the Gospel to more people, the Aroma community is stepping out in faith to open a second coffee shop & church location! In October we secured a suitable storefront location in Taipei's traditional Wan Hua district. The remodeling effort is well underway, and the Aroma 2 will open its doors Jan 7, 2018.

Pray for 
our interns and residents in this holiday season!It can be tough for our missionaries to be so far away from home. Also for the church as we tend to have a much higher church attendance during the summer and it tends to fall quite a bit during the fall months. Pray that through our focus on follow-up, our numbers will continue to grow, not for numbers sake alone, but so that more and more people will continue to become more and more like Jesus!
Burkina Faso: John & Betty Arnold
Praise God...For the well drilling team!Recently3 wells were drilled in just three days! 3 successful wells, that is so much to be thankful for, and this is not always the case as many who have come know!

Pray for Betty and John who have malaria.Malaria is part of life in Burkina Faso, not a fun part, but a part of our reality. Pray that God would heal their bodies and protect them and their team from malaria in the future.
Costa Rica: Chuck Fanberg

Please continue to pray for Chuck and the rest of the Fanbergfamily as they mourn the loss of their precious Robbi.

Taiwan Intern: Michael Gerber

Praise God for answering prayers regarding tech problems, twice recently Michael experienced a problem that he could not solve. After he prayed it worked immediately!
Pray for Michael's relationships with Taiwanese friends and families. He wants to continue to learn language and culture so that he can better communicate with them. Pray that God would speak through any lack of language fluency.
Your Prayers Make a Difference!
We are so grateful for your participation in missions through prayer! Whether it's to pray for safety during a terrorist attack, or people being saved during mission trips, or praying for safety as our teams travel - it matters. God hears the prayers of His people when you seek Him with your whole heart!

Pray God's Word
"So let us come boldly to the throne of our gracious God. There we will receive his mercy, and we will find grace to help us when we need it most"
Hebrews 4:16,NLT

The numberof Christians in Wan Hua, Taiwan is very low, at less than 5% of the total population. Most existing local churches are irrelevant to the average Taiwanese person. In fact, very few of Chris and Jamie's Buddhist friends would ever consider entering a Christian church building.
