Weekly Prayer Items - March 11-17, 2018
GBC Family of the Week: Martha Beyette

MBA Church of the Week: Waverley Church, Winnipeg MB
Lead Pastor - Tony Penner; Children's Pastor - Thomas Pujol; Worship Pastor - Jeremy Yuen

Missionary of the Week: Tim Stevenson, Horizon Community Church, Galt, California. One of the philosophies of Horizon is that a church is a group of people not a building, so they gather at locations in three different cities. The two newest campuses are in Lodi and Walnut Grove. This past year they welcomed two new staff, a youth pastor at their Lodi campus and a high school and college-age youth pastor at their Galt campus. Pray that God would continue to deepen and widen their ministries in all three communities. For more information, visit www.horizonweb.org.

Pray for the Persecuted Church: Algeria
On Tuesday, Feb. 27, police closed two churches in Oran after informing them that they did not have state approval to operate. Since December, government officials have visited 25 of 45 churches affiliated with Algeria’s main protestant church. And on Nov. 9, 2017, a church that had trained and discipled more than 7,000 former Muslims since 1997 was forced to close its doors. Authorities claimed it had been illegally printing the Gospels and other publications for evangelism. Pray that these churches will find new places to meet and that believers throughout Algeria will support and strengthen one another. Pray that their faith will be a bright light in their predominantly Muslim nation.

Please continue to pray for the Search Committee as they continue their search for a permanent pastor at GBC. Pray that God will be preparing the person that we need.

Walter and Florence Grob - Cameroon. Please pray for the ongoing transition in the Finance Department at the Cameroon Baptist Convention as Walter has transitioned to a new role, from the one as Supervisor at the Department of Finance that he held since 1994. Pray for the native Cameroonian, Mr. Ntam, who has taken on this role, that he would adjust well. Please pray for the socio-political unrest that is growing in English-speaking Cameroon. This unrest has caused a disruption to Florence's dental practice, forcing her to venture into small-scale vegetable farming. Praise God that out of this unrest, a renewed spirit of prayer and unity has grown in the Cameroonian Church.
