2018 -Prayer Requests

June 2018

  • Pray for Pastor Israel Shobede and His family. Pray for phyiscal healing and spiritual strength. Pray for wisdom as they deal with a family member who is being influenced by sangomas.
  • We are blessed by the missionary families we work with. ZEMA’s mantra is to know God and make Him known among the amaZioni. Satan would love to discourage us from that focus. Please pray for these families: God’s protection, healing, and direction as they prioritize family and ministry. You may see pics as well as the names of these families by clicking HERE.
  • Pray for the Hoffman family who is away from Sunbury on furlough until the first week in August.
  • We’re so thankful for Howard and Lynn Swank who have come to run Sunbury in the Hoffman’s absence! Pray for continued wisdom as they oversee the housekeeping, building, and maintenance.
  • Continue to pray for Moody Intern Michael Baker who is presently staying with Pastor Khuba (Mpungose). Pray for a positive learning experience for him, as well as encouragement in his ministry in the Nkandla community.
  • Pray for Greg. He wears many hats. Pray for wisdom. That he would be able to encourage and support our ministry partners. Pray for continued healing (PSA is down by more than half 👍🏼)

April 2018

  • Pray for Siyabonga Shungube and his wife as they minister in their community and church in Stanger.
  • Continue to Pray for a full recovery and healing for Greg from prostate cancer. The treatment phase for the radioactive implants is beyond their half-life. From this point, it is a matter of monitor the effectiveness of the treatment, and his body continuing to heal.

  • Pray for ZEMA’s home office as they continue to plan and lead in helping to grow ZEMA’s ministries. Greg will participate in a Deep-Dive (at one time called strategic planning meetings? …I think we’re getting old!😉) with the home office this weekend.
  • Pray for Moody Intern Michael Baker who will be arriving in SA on the 29th of May. Pray for God to lead in His ministry experience. He will be living at an African homestead, followed by interacting with African students and helping with the ministry at the Union Bible Institute.

January 2018

  • Pray for a full recovery and healing for Greg from his prostate cancer. He had brachytherapy on December 14th. This is an internal administration of radiation that is ongoing. The greatest intensity of the radiation is now until the end of February.
  • Pray for Barb Hugo who is scheduled for another mastectomy on Monday, 29 January. Pray for a safe surgery, healing, and recovery.
  • Pray for a safe delivery of Ryne and Amy’s baby 🎀girl🎀 on February 6th.
  • We are thankful for our faithful supporters. Thank God for His provision for our family and ministry.
  • Pray that God would further provide. Many Christian organizations, missionaries, and ministries face financial challenges. ZEMA is not unique in this challenge. Each year foundations like the Barnabus Foundation, the Miller Foundation, and this year for the first time, the Mergon Foundation consider whether and how they might contribute toward ZEMA’s ministries to the amaZioni. Thank God for His provision through Christian business, and pray the He would continue to guide and provide.
  • Pray for our home office staff as they organize and administrate in ways that are vital to ZEMA’s continued ministry and outreach. A team coming in April will be tasked with participating in, and then communicating, the vast opportunity, which ZEMA has to reach into the heart of Southern Africa.
