july 2024 - 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 supernaturally arrange some appointments with hikers, artists, and visitors on the streets of Monson this summer, and that Daryl would be sensitive to, and make the most of, such divine appointments to effectively exchange with people about matters of faith and eternal significance.

  • -That God would incite spiritual renewal here in Monson.

  • -That the Lord would move a qualified couple to move to Monson, live rent-free in our stately parsonage, and voluntarily (for now, anyway) serve the church here in either a pastoral role, or as a Christian influence in the community and as encouragers in the church.

    Please pray for our missionary family who previously served in Western Asia. Our friends have gone through a major transition this year. Pray that they will continue to process, heal and be able to discern the next steps for their family. Pray also for the ongoing court case that they are dealing with in Western Asia as well as the believers and partners they had to leave behind.

    • Wisdom and clarity for Heather as she plans Reentry Workshops and networks with area service providers.

    • One-on-one meetings with women at prison to be effective and encouraging.

    april 2024 - BOBBY & MICHELE LAW

    • We are thankful that Bobby and Michele were safe in the recent earthquake in Taiwan.
    • Taiwan's most popular deity is the sea goddess Mazu. Named by the Discovery Channel as one of the top three religious festivals in the world, the annual Dajia Mazu 9-day-8-night pilgrimage covers a distance of about 200 miles. Worshippers accompany the procession on foot. This year’s procession starts on April 5.  
    • Many believers have started to travel alongside the Mazu worshipers to share the gospel and/or hand out gospel tracts. Some churches are starting to open the church for the Mazu worshippers to use the bathrooms and serve snacks. Pray that the Holy Spirit will speak through these Mazu outreaches through the gospel sharing, tracts distribution, and outreaches of the churches.


    The Adomako family is involved in leadership training and development in Ghana, West Africa.
    • Please pray for our hospital building project.The estimated cost for the first phase is $45,000. By God’s grace, as of now, we have raised $10,500, which is currently being used for purchasing more building materials.
    • We are still molding more cement blocks for the main foundation and looking forward to liaising with some Christian medical organizations, individuals, and church families in the US and Ghana to help build this facility for God’s glory!
    • Pray for our field volunteers and construction workers.
    • Pray for eQuip Ghana’s High-Impact Rural Bible and Leadership training program for the year 2024. Please pray for our current batch of students that God would be glorified in the studies and also pray for eQuip Ghana as we celebrate 5 years of training and equipping rural church leaders.
    • Please continue to pray that the Lord would provide the resources to purchase 200 Ghanaian Language Bibles for 200 rural pastors in 2024. By His grace, we have managed to serve 100 rural pastors with Bibles in their native language.
    • Please continue to pray for us. We are still trusting God and planning to travel to the United States to visit our sending and supporting churches in September 2024. May Daniel 3:18 continue to take hold, and may our hearts be at peace knowing that our God will go before us (Deuteronomy 31:8–9). Amen! 

    february 2024 - Matt & Julie Walsh

    Matt & Julie and their family serve with Friends in Action, International in West Africa. The Walshes are involved in technical work which includes: well drilling, building construction, bridge building, water distribution, road construction, water filtering and mobilization.

    Current prayer requests:

    • Please pray for the return of the Effler family from home assignment at the end of January.  We will all be together as a team again and increasing our ministry activities and outreach.
    • Please pray for the teams that are scheduled to come this spring.  We are planning on 4-5 teams in the next few months.  The first team is scheduled to come for the last two weeks of February and will be focusing on the fabrication of the second half of the work hangar.
    • Please pray as our family has begun to focus on Wolof language studies.  Matt, Julie, Thomas and Stephanie are meeting weekly with a language tutor.  It’s a mix of French, English and Wolof as we work first towards the ability to introduce ourselves and understand the basics.  Eventually we will work towards a deeper understanding and the ability to share the gospel in Wolof. 
    • Please pray for Thomas as he is going through the college application process for this fall.  He has been accepted at 4 schools and is trying to figure out the financial aid packages and narrow down the best fit from afar.
    • New ministry opportunities have begun to open up.  Thomas is going with our language helper once a week to participate in a house church ministry in a village about 30 an hour away.  Julie and Thomas just visited a woman who has terminal cancer near our area.  She was receiving treatment from a missionary doctor and we are looking at providing some follow up services for her and her family.
    • Please pray for partners for well drilling.  Once the well is completed on our land and we are able to move the drilling rig after Jeremy Effler gets back, we will be looking for places to drill wells in partnership with churches and ministries.  We have a few possibilities lined up but we need to go through the vetting process and need to find more potential partners.
    • Please pray for our family as we try to figure out what our home assignment will look like this summer/fall.  We are expecting to return to the US in June after three years here.  The first two months will likely be full of traveling and visits but then Thomas will be heading off to college and Tessa may return to the boarding school.  The following few months will be more church visits but the remaining four kids will need to spend a lot of time on school with Julie so we will likely be more settled somewhere and do trips on the weekend.  We have to figure out housing, travel and how long we need to be back to help Thomas transition but also wanting to get back here for Tessa.
