Four Ways to Pray for Abidjan

Kids team
 We've been in Abidjan for almost four weeks now, and we have about four weeks left. Here are four ways that you can be praying for us:
  1. Pray that God would draw people to himself as we share the gospel in different neighborhoods of Abidjan. "No one can come to me unless the Father who sent me draws him" (John 6:44a).
  2. Pray that many young Christians would come to know and embrace a God-centered, Christ-exalting vision of marriage and its consummate act through our True Love Waits trainings. "'Therefore a man shall leave his father and mother and hold fast to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh.' This mystery is profound, and I am saying that it refers to Christ and the church" (Eph. 5:31-32).
  3. Pray that we would be a blessing to believers here, both to the missionaries and to the natives. "For God has not destined us for wrath, but to obtain salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ...Therefore encourage one another and build one another up, just as you are doing" (1 Thess. 5:9-11).
  4.  Pray that God be glorified in all that we do—the worship of his name, the building up of his church, and the calling of those he came to save. "So, whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God" (1 Cor. 10:31).
Thank you for your prayers and support.
