Riverside Missions Prayer Requests
Partner Update
May 15, 2017
Taiwan: Chris & Jamie O'Dell
Praise the Lord for Summer Bible Talk sessions starting up May 17, a chance for the local people to practice their English, and learn about the Bible!

Pray for negotiations on opening a second location, possibly this fall. Also pray for Chris and Jamie's boys who haven't been sleeping through the night because of teething and dreaming.

Burkina Faso: John & Betty Arnold
We praise God for all of your prayers! They are making a visible, tangible difference in our lives.

Pray for all of the preparations that go into hosting summer teams - there is so much to do! Especially pray that the missionary staff will have the stamina to get through the busy summer season.
Costa Rica: Chuck & Robbi Fanberg
Praise the Lord that Robbi is doing fairly well despite some free-floating cancer cells in her cerebral fluid.

Pray for complete healing from cancer for Robbi. The doctors are working to balance meds to fight the cancer cells in her cerebral 
fluid but the side effects include light headedness and fainting.Pray for Chuck's work in Central America. He was able to go there a few weeks ago; there are matters to attend to, but he is only free to go when Robbi is doing well.
Taiwan Intern: Michael Gerber

Praise God for my mentors and my manager who support me as I minister to those who don't yet know Christ.

Pray for 7 incoming teams and 10 interns - Pray that we can host them well and partner with them in ministry this summer.

Your Prayers Make a Difference!
God's Word promises us that God hears our prayers when we ask in His name - that we can boldly go to Him and ask on behalf of others (James 5:16, Psalm 34:15, 2 Chronicles 7:14-15). We are blessed to hear regularly from our partners how God is answering your prayers. Thanks for making a difference in our partners' lives!

Praying with you -

Pray God's Word
"And if you give yourself to the hungry and satisfy the desire of the afflicted, then your light will rise in darkness. And your gloom will become like midday."

Isaiah 58:10

...that our partners in both Taipei, Taiwan and Burkina Faso, West Africa are just like us? They do many of the same things we do - just in another part of the world! Next Sunday we'll hear from one of our partners, Justin & Brittany, who are serving with the Aroma Church in Taipei. You'll want to hear what they have to say about their lives being very similar to ours...just in a different part of the world.
