For Abayas' travel: Mawo and Janet leave for Jos on Friday. We are praying for traveling mercies and thanking God for His plan and provision to scholarship the 15 MBB students (Mu$l!m background believers) and families to study at the ISOE (International School of Evangelism) in Jos. Father, protect these precious families, that they may return to their people a strong witness for Jesus Christ.
For Dhanbad SOE students: The School of Evangelism (SOE) is working with Bishops and other leaders in the state to lobby against clauses 3 and 4 within the "Freedom of Religion" act. These clauses have sent 16 Christian leaders to prison with no bail. May God give the local leaders a voice to influence the release of these 16.
On the 28th of September two special teachers, Rev. Sam. and Mrs. V, will , teach at the SOE on the topics of discipleship, evangelism, and Church planting. Pray for their preparation to be led by the Spirit and that this training will be a catalyst for transformation in the hearts of the Dhanbad SOE students.
For the Kol and Mu$l!m Sheikh: We thank God for the opportunity to host two outreach events for the Kol people. Help us to continue building bonds of friendship with the Kol that we might continue sharing the gospel! Our computer training program among the Mu$l!m Sheikh will soon begin in a local village. We hope and pray that this center will attract hundreds and become an opportunity to share the gospel with them.
For the SOE in Surinam: We lift up our partner in Surinam as he plans to reopen the SOE to 20 commuting part-time students who will complete the 16 SOE courses over a two-year period.
For the MSOE in Odisha: On the 19th of August, the MSOE for the Mankidia UPG (unreached people group) of Odisha was inaugurated. Pray for the two SOE graduates who have been entrusted with the vision to reach the entire Mankidia group in Odisha.
For ER friends and Home Office: Pray for the Drakes as they await the birth of their child in the coming days. Pray for those fighting serious illnesses: Janet Bunge, Rick Burns, Lois Charls, Arlene Johnson, Jeanette LaMothe, Dick Reznik, Robyn Schwartz, Bernice Spann.
Thank you for praying with us!

Unreached People Groups:
Until just recently the Khadia people were unresponsive to the gospel but God is moving in the hearts of Khadias in a miraculous way. The Lord has opened the door to us to reach the Khadia through their immediate neighbors, the Mankidia (Birhor) people group. The Khadia have seen how faith in Jesus Christ has transformed the Mankidias. Now the Khadias are motivated and gradually their hearts are opening to receive the gospel. Continue to pray for the students, teachers and supervising team of the Khadia Mobile School of Evangelism, under the leadership of Mrs. Hironmoyee Hrudaya.
