Prayer Guide for GRN Thailand July 2024

Hierdie bladsy is tans nie beskikbaar in Afrikaans nie.

Listening to the Gospel on an MP3 player from GRNT in her remote village brought encouragement for healing to a depressed Karen mother. She was on the verge of suicide when our recordings brought hope and peace through Jesus Christ. Pray she will grow in the Lord. Your faithfulness in prayer is bearing good fruit as more people than ever before listen to our recordings.

Thanks for taking each request to heart this month and lifting the needs to our heavenly Father.
