by Joshua and Joanna Bogunjoko, SIM International Director | We will be traveling for a month, and we ask for your fervent prayers to surround us.
“Save us, Lord our God,
and gather us from the nations,
that we may give thanks
to your holy name
and glory in your praise.
48 Praise be to the Lord,
the God of Israel,
from everlasting to everlasting.
Let all the people say, “Amen!”
Praise the Lord.” Psalm 106:47-48.
In our Christmas/New Year letter, we mentioned that SIM will celebrate its 125th anniversary in 2018. SIM will also be hosting our Global Assembly (GA), which only meets every three or four years. We thank God who has given us life to see this historic year and to celebrate with many people from SIM world. We are excited for all the Lord has done and all He is yet to do.
We will be traveling for a month, and we ask for your fervent prayers to surround us. We will visit one of our regional offices, and then Joshua will speak at the Africa Roundtable of the ACSI (Association of Christian Schools International). Following that will be meetings of SIM’s International Board of Governors. Then our Global Assembly will convene for five days. Following this is a retreat for SIM’s Country Directors, and finally, a meeting of the International Leadership Team.
Thank God with us:
- for all the work that has gone into the preparations.
- for all the speakers God has uniquely called and prepared.
- for all the visas already granted.
Please pray for:
- our preparations and travel, especially for all the reports that Joshua needs to write.
- our visit with the regional office, that we will be a blessing to them.
- preparations for Africa Roundtable (Joshua will be speaking on “Africa Development and Partnership” – pray for the Lord to speak through him).
- all the preparations for Global Assembly.
- all the preparations for 125th anniversary year.
- traveling mercies for us and for all those who will be traveling.
- Jochebed and Joel to be well while we are away for almost a month.
- utterance, boldness, strength and good health for everyone.
- for God to grant favor and mercy to those still waiting to get their visas.
Thank you for the special part you play in the fulfilment of SIM’s purpose and vision.
