I’ve been away from blogging to attend the funeral of my paternal grandmother. More on that here.
To start off the week, here’re are a couple prayer requests coming out of Colombia.

CAFE (ColombiA's Forgotten Ethnos) PEOPLES (cah-FAY). Thank you for your prayers for the development of leaders from among the Christian indigenous students who are participating in the indigenous university student center. Two of these students, D and G, are leading chronological Bible storying times on Wednesdays and Sundays with a group of 10 students in the residences (dorms) where the indigenous students live. These are non-believers who started meeting because they are interested in learning about God. Pray for these leaders and for the salvation of these students. Petition for a clear understanding of the stories. Pray for IMB missionary B as she mentors the leaders. Praise the Lord for this first group led by the students!

COLOMBIA. Each month, missionary P prepares a Prayer Bulletin in Spanish that is distributed to all of Colombia's Baptist churches as well as to other churches and individuals. This Prayer Bulletin serves as a source for a daily devotional, for Christian growth, and as a call to prayer for the spread of the Gospel among the different indigenous groups of Colombia. Pray that P will be open and obedient to God's leadership in the preparation of this Prayer Bulletin. Intercede for churches and individuals who receive this Bible study/prayer tool, asking that they will be faithful to read the daily Scripture passages and accompanying devotional thoughts, and to pray for non-Christian family and friends.
**Missionary P was also mentioned in a different request earlier and serves on the Nicodemus Team.**
Let’s remember to pray for our missionaries in Colombia and around the world.
