Please pray for our field workers in the northern hemisphere as they endure the long, dark days of winter, snow and cold in many locations, and the inevitable winter viruses and flus. Pray that God would sustain their health and bring them encouragement in their work.
Please pray for the continued distribution and impact of Steve Richardson’s new book (see section “What has been encouraging us” for more details).

Please pray for Suzy M. in Central Asia as she continues rehearsals over the northern winter for a production in April.

Please also pray for her house church as several attendees depart for work in other locations.
Please pray for Katherine Y. in Northern Africa, that she might enjoy a few weeks of rest and refreshment after a busy semester of teaching at the new Medical Training Institute. Pray that she might have wisdom and discernment as she prepares material for the new semester, and that this new season of earning would get off to a great start in January.
Please pray for the team at Pioneers NZ as we look to establish fruitful partnerships with sending churches for our field new workers leaving for the field in 2023.

Please pray for the expansion and development of our Pioneers NZ Regional Hub Network in 2023. Pray that we will be able to bring great encouragement and challenge to people around NZ as we help them engage more deeply with God’s global mission story through these groups.
