Southeast Asia – Banana City, Lychee City

Banana City Children

Brother Tai & Xiao Ling

Personal & Family

  • Pray for brother Tai’s family; He’s already been separated from his wife and third child for more than a month. Because of controls set due to the pandemic, it’s very hard for them to leave the locations where they are at this time, but he misses his family very much and hopes they will soon be reunited.

Ministry

  • They have divided their Sunday meetings up into three locations, about 5 to 8 people at each location. Pray for the safety of their meetings.
  • Pray for one elderly sister in the church who is 71 this year and has a brain tumor. Her right side is paralyzed and her memory is not so good — she can recite only the Lord’s prayer. Her son is taking care of her. She’s very zealous in her love for the Lord; may the Lord protect her and heal her! Winter is coming, and elderly and children easily catch cold, so may the Lord protect their health.
  • As the pandemic situation has become severe in the area where Brother Tai is, movement is again very restricted. In this environment of so many long-term restrictions, a lot of shops have been forced to close down and the main town in the county is very quiet — people can’t make a living, and there are hardly any work opportunities. Please pray for the pandemic situation and the people’s lives there!
  • Now Brother Tai meets each Saturday with the Banana City sisters that were mentioned in last month’s requests. Now there are 15 or 20 of them; may the Lord protect this ministry! Sometimes he feels powerless; May the Lord Himself give him wisdom and power.
  • In Banana City – brothers and sisters often ask when the pandemic will be over so they can meet together again. Pray that they will truly experience God — they will know He has not forsaken them, that He is with them.
  • In Lychee City, both the civil war and the pandemic situation are severe.
