In Bolivia, Dan and Mary Sue Reed have asked us to pray for Yenny who just had surgery for a tumor on her thyroid (Yenny and her family are pictured above). The tumor was cancerous so the surgeons had to remove her whole thyroid. She will also have six weeks of radiation. Yenny is one of the key leaders who Dan and Mary Sue worked with at the Km 14 church plant which became Casa de Misericordia (House of Mercy Church). She is also the one who shared a clear gospel message with the 120 or so kids who came to Carlos Laborde for the special Christmas program and gifts on December 30 (click HERE to read about the event). Pray for Yenny, her husband, and their three-year-old son.

The following prayer request was written by GMI missionary Steve Sherman and was sent out to the Shermans’ email list in “The Sherman Safari.” We want to share this prayer request with all of you as well so you can be informed and pray for this church in Tanzania, too


We are asking you to pray for our brothers and sisters in Christ in Mwankuba, Mwanza, Tanzania.

This morning during their three-day Easter Conference there was a heavy rain with high winds that knocked down the Mwankuba church during their worship service.

Pastor Methodi Mwendapole says that several members were rushed to the hospital in Magu about an hour away. Methodi himself hurt his back and was hit in the head by a board. Pictured below is another pastor from the Nyashimba church who was also hit in the head.


This weekend these young churches (4 church plants and 1 established church) gathered together for three days of preaching, singing, and celebrating the Lord’s Supper.

Steve was the main speaker at last year’s celebration in the village of Igadya (pictured above and below).

These annual gatherings are very important for the growth and encouragement of these young churches. Please pray for those who were injured. Pray also that the whole group will be encouraged and especially the Mwankuba church plant who will be discouraged that the church they built just ten months ago has been destroyed.

Thank you,

Steve and Barb Sherman
