LORD,We lift the entire Middle Eastern region up to you. It’s a very turbulent time for anyone, Christian or not, to be there right now. Please be with the persecuted and any workers who are able to be in that region. Please watch and protect Your holy city as war continues around it. We pray for a peaceful solution to this controversial war. Let Your will be done. Amen.

What is like in Grenada? Well, here is a little taste: The percentage of children born out of wedlock in Grenada stands at 82 percent, and many children do not grow up knowing the stability of a two-parent home. Some say this is a tragic legacy of the island’s early slave culture.
What's it like in St. Croix? St. Croix has no natural running water, such as rivers or springs, so residents must fill cisterns with either well water or purchased desalinized water.
>> REMEMBER TO PRAY for the youth at the St. Croix Christian Union Church. Pray for their salvation and commitment to Christ. Also pray for the youth attending your church as well.

world as we entered Haiti.
What's It Like in Haiti? All Haitians trace their ancestry to the slaves who came over from Africa. Perhaps the most infamous cultural tradition is the voodoo folk religion.
Haiti’s economy is ranked as one of the poorest in the Western Hemisphere, with approximately 80 percent of the population living in abject poverty.

Join the concert tomorrow as we pray for the West Indies, St. Croix and Grenada.

Gang influence is devastating Stockton, California. Families are torn apart, friendships are destroyed, and all ages are exposed to violent crime. Pray for the children and youth. Pray that they will drink deeply from the fountain of living water and break the cycle of violence. All in all, will you boldly ask
that the Father’s love will flood this city and transform it?

Muslims throughout the world need to know that Christ loves them and died for them. Pray for open hearts and for more workers to reach this people group.
How can you make a missions impact? Identify a Muslim living near you and introduce yourself. Then, pray for his or her salvation every Friday, as Friday is their day of prayer.
WGM is blessed that God has opened this ministry to Muslims in the United States in cooperation with Arab World Ministries, an evangelical mission focused on enabling people of the Arab world to proclaim Christ as their Savior. Please pray that God will grant singleness of heart in this partnership.
HERE'S HOW YOU CAN PRAY:
Lord, Be with the Muslim population now residing in the United States. Let them feel Your love even though they may be persecuted by others. Use Your church to show the real God to the Muslims. Help me to be more accepting so that my life will exemplify You. Use me to reach the searching Muslim population. I love You, Lord. Amen.

Thanks to all of you who joined the concert today for the Hispanic Ministries in the U.S. This field will focus most of its energies into church ministries. Keeping in mind that church is more than a building, each one of us are the church. We are the hands and feet of ministry. How are you sharing the gospel with Latin Americans living in your neighborhood? Need an idea on how to get started? Evangelism begins with relationship. Bake some cookies and share them with your neighbors. A little conversation over coffee and cookies could lead to eternal impact.
Remember that since we entered a new section of the world a new podcast is available on the website. Just click the podcast graphic and listen.
See you at the concert!

Next Stop North America
If you were able to join the concert on Saturday you know that Debbie Hawk led us in prayer for the ministries of El Salvador. That was our last concert for the Central America region and today we entered North America with a concert for the ministries of Mexico.
We seemed to have another technical glitch today with a conference phone not working. There has been more difficulties this year than we experienced last. I think God's people are praying. I have heard from some of you saying that even though you were unable to attend or hear the concert you have been praying. Please keep praying. Pray that God will bless the efforts of this ministry and that He will be glorified.
Join the concert tomorrow as we pray for the new ministry of Hispanic Ministries in the United States.
