January 2022 - Daryl & Mary WItmer

Daryl & Mary Witmer have served for many years in Monson, Maine, running an apologetics ministry called Areopagus To America (AIIA). 

Current prayer requests:

• That God would be true to His promise to work in us both to will and to do His good pleasure (Philippians 2:13). 

That God would grant us stamina and move us to be strong, authentic in our relationship with Him, faithful in our service, selfless, focused, inspired in our work, wise in our decision-making and bold for Jesus, regardless of the circumstances that might come along in our lives in 2022.

december 2021

Below are some requests from a GPC family serving in Western Asia

-Unity and brotherly love for one another in our believing community of nationals and expats

-Wisdom, boldness and favor as a couple of brothers go to inform the local authorities of our plan to have a Christmas party during the week before Christmas.

-Boldness for us to share about what we really celebrate at Christmas - often the first response to seeing our home and decorations is "Wow, look at that beautiful New Year's Tree!"

-For humility and forgiveness to mark us as a believing community.

-For wisdom in interactions with the staff at the retreat center - tensions among the national staff have continued to increase and disunity abounds.

november 2021 - Heather albrecht

Heather works with New Mornings Reentry Services, mentoring women at the Chester Counter Correctional Center and leading a Fresh Start class. Covid has definitely disrupted the routine of prison ministry and made mentoring and supporting women more challenging.

- Please pray for incarcerated men and women who have been severely isolated for the past 18 months. Pray that they will maintain good mental health and their desire to learn about Jesus would grow. Please pray for chaplains and staff to have wisdom about reinstating visitation and programs.

-Pray for the missionaries and volunteer teams at New Mornings Reentry Services to be encouraged and have renewed passion for prison ministry. Pray that New Mornings’ ministry teams would be able to return to the prison to lead the Fresh Start Course and Discovery Group in the coming months.

- Please pray for wisdom and peace for our family. Pray for smooth transitions and positive interactions at home, school and work.


-Pray that through Bible songs and scriptures memorized at the summer camp, the Gospel seed planted in moms' and children’s hearts and minds will one day grow and bear fruit.

-Max, our current children's ministry coworker, will be joining the national military service for four months. A seminary intern will fill in Max’s role during his absence. Pray for a good transition and that the children will bond well with him.

-A few believers at Yutian are still attending adult Bible study and Sunday Worship online. Pray that they will maintain spiritual vibrancy in their relationship with God.

-September 21 is the Mid-Autumn Festival. Yutian is planning to invite neighbors and friends to an outdoor celebration on September 19. Pray for good weather and programs that can help to deepen our relationships with these contacts.

-Pray that Christians in Taiwan are able to testify to the joy and peace from the Lord during the Ghost Month.


1. Kindly pray for eQuip Ghana (our Bible and Leadership Academy) faculty and in-person/online students. Our second graduation is just around the corner.

2. By the grace of God, we are nearing the finish line for our ministry center building project. Pray that God will provide for the finishing and furnishing. We are getting ready to do the floor tiling, install fiberglass window screens, painting of the building, and then furnish the offices, library, conference/training room, etc. Ps. God willing, needed items and total cost for furnishing will be published in our next newsletter report. Dedication of the facility is still slated for next Summer, 2022. 

3. Lastly, pray for Emmanualla (her story is captured in our recent newsletter report). Pray that the Lord will provide so we can acquire her the prosthetic legs and crutches.

July 2021 - Matt & Julie Walsh

Matt & Julie and their family spent many years serving in Burkina Faso. This summer they are transitioning to a new ministry in West Africa.

Current prayer requests:

  • Please pray for our team in Burkina who continue to deal with difficult conditions due to terrorist activity in the country.
  • Please pray as we seek to raise additional support to cover the transition costs for our move and setup in our new country as well as the higher cost of living.
