Thank God for technology that allows OMF New Zealand candidates to continue to connect with their existing supporters via Zoom, WhatsApp, phone, and Mailchimp during this socially distant time. Pray that God will open doors and sustain their faith while travel restrictions, medical insurance limitations, bans on large gatherings, and quarantine or self-isolation requirements create challenges. Pray for wisdom and protection for those who need to keep a low profile online while they do partnership development. Pray for support and encouragement to cope during the uncertainty and challenges, and that practical steps could be developed to move forward when the time comes.

Lift up OMF New Zealand retirees, praying Psalm 91:1-2 over them as New Zealand heads into the winter season: “He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High will abide in the shadow of the Almighty. I will say to the Lord, “My refuge and my fortress, my God, in whom I trust.” Pray these retirees would dwell with and dwell in God, that he would be the source of their strength. Thank God for these retirees who have served the Lord and pray for their good health at this time.

In the absence of a National Director for OMF New Zealand, the role has been split between six people (most in a volunteer capacity), each with a different area to oversee. Pray that this model would work, and that the six acting-NDs would communicate well and cover the various needs effectively.

Many people who used to serve in Asia with OMF are now retired in New Zealand and stay active in their ministries of prayer and encouraging current missionaries. God, we ask you to work powerfully through these retirees as they mobilize new workers, serve in their local church, and pray for East Asia’s peoples.

New Zealand / 02 December 2018

God, we praise for each person OMF New Zealand is helping to send to Asia to serve short term or long term. We ask you to provide more short term workers, long term workers and volunteers.
