PRAYER FOCUS

Pray for Nigeria

Possibly the 3rd largest population of Christians reside in the African nation of Nigeria. Persecution of Christians is commonplace in Nigeria. In the North East it is generally understood that the majority of Christian  families have lost at least one family member too persecution. 

 

Unfortunately, the persecution has spread to include all of Northern Nigeria. One form of persecution that hits Christians in the North is kidnappings. The kidnappings have become frequent occurrences in the last 6 months. The latest kidnapping comes from Kaduna. “The pupils were kidnapped from Bethel Baptist High School in Kaduna in a raid late on Sunday night and into the early hours of Monday morning. A teacher at the school, Emmanuel Paul, told the AFP news agency that” ‘the kidnappers took away 140 students – only 25 students escaped. We still have no idea where the students were taken.’ Source: RT News

 

Let’s join together as the body of Christ and lift up these young people before the Lord. Pray that the Lord will send his angels to help and minister to them as the live through this time of abduction. Pray that the captors are halted from any type of abuse of the children. Ask Jesus to minister to them and through them. Most of all pray that they will be released soon and be able to return home.

Ministry Update: Did You Know?

Cambria County Prison, PA

 

Did you know? Bible Discovery sends out 50 Bible Guides to the Cambria County prison every month. Pastor Art Bucceri is the chaplain at the prison. He has worked with Bible Discovery to supply inmates with the guides. Pastor Bucceri “serves the Lord as Pastor through the New Life Church Prison Ministry. Pastor Art is the Cambria County Prison Chaplain; in this capacity, he and his wife, Pastor Marlene Bucceri, are able to share the gospel of Jesus Christ and bring hope to the lives of many. In addition, Pastor Art attends Restoration College International and has studied Biblical Hebrew. He serves New Life Church as an elementary age Sunday School teacher and acts as Head Usher, leading the ushers in ensuring many behind the scene needs are met.”

 

Please pray that the inmates are moved to a deeper relationship with the Lord through studying the Bible. Also, pray for Pastor Art Bucceri as he disciples the inmates and helps them have hope in Jesus. Finally, pray for the Cambria County prison to have an institute wide move of the Spirit of God.

 

The guides are sent to the prison without cost. Partners, like you, make it possible for Bible Discovery and ultimately the Word of God, to reach those behind bars. Join us in praying for more opportunities for this ministry to reach more people with the truth of the Gospel. 

 

 

“Then the righteous will answer Him, saying, ‘Lord, when did we see You hungry and feed You, or thirsty and give You drink?  When did we see You a stranger and take You in, or naked and clothe You?  Or when did we see You sick, or in prison, and come to You?’  And the King will answer and say to them, ‘Assuredly, I say to you, inasmuch as you did it to one of the least of these My brethren, you did it to Me.”

 

– Matthew 25:37-40

Pray for Twen

 

Twen Theodros

 

We are so blessed to be able to share an update from Voice of the Martyrs. A wonderful sister in the Lord was recently released from prison. We praise God for His mercy in preserving Twen.

 

“Those who have read the story of Eritrean gospel singer Helen Berhane in her book, Song of the Nightingale, will be familiar with Helen’s fellow prisoner and close friend, “Esther”. Esther’s real name is Twen Theodros, and she was imprisoned in the same shipping container as Helen. 

 

Twen is an amazing Christian woman who endured terrible beatings and torture at the hands of Eritrean prison guards. On occasions, Twen took the punishment in place of Helen and, when Helen was very ill as a result of the beatings and prison conditions, Twen cared for her. She fed Helen, washed her wounds, defended her and even carried her to the toilet when Helen was unable to walk. 

 

Twen was arrested in the Eritrean capital, Asmara, in 2004 but was released after her father persuaded her to sign a paper saying she would not continue to meet with other Christians, share her faith or engage in Christian activities. In 2005, she was re-arrested after she was found participating in an evening prayer meeting in an underground church. Following her arrest, Twen was sent to Mai Sirwa Prison. In 2006, she was joined by a large group of detainees who were arrested at a Christian wedding celebration in Asmara.”

 

“Twen was 23 years old when she was first arrested in 2004. At that time, Twen was a new believer. Today, Twen is considered a key senior women’s leader in the prison. She continues to look after and care for other women prisoners. 

 

People who know and love Twen say she is a precious, lovely Christian who is determined to remain a faithful follower of Jesus. They also say she is willing to stay in prison as long as God enables her to serve him there by helping others.” V.O.M Prisoner Alert

 

Twen was released “September 12, 2020.” Join with us praising God for helping  her endure. We join together and ask Jesus to bless her and help her to transition to life outside the prison walls.
