The New Year is an appropriate time to reflect on the grace given throughout the past year. More than a thousand GAP Prayer warriors cried out for Christ’s kingdom to come. Below is an update of how God answered a few prayer requests in 2018.

January 2018: Philippines: Ben Cayaon had surgery to close a CSF leak in his brain.

Update: The surgery was a success and Rev. Ben is functioning fully in ministry. Dr. Kapil Mishra from Nepal also had a successful gallbladder surgery. The Luke Society ministry director in China had successful kidney surgery.

January 2018: Cameroon: Dr. Paul Atem had lost a nurse in their rural Okwala clinic.

Update: A new nurse, Mirable is leading the work in Okwala. Also, the Myanmar ministry continues to search for a successor for its faithful nurse Le Ding.

March 2018: Bolivia: Many were left homeless or died from flooding in Chilimarca.

Update: Through this tragedy, ministry director Teodocia Cabrera was able to assist many flood victims both physically and spiritually. Recovery and clean-up has been ongoing after mudslides in Matupi, Myanmar, a volcano near Patzun, Guatemala and flooding in Cuttack, India.

April 2018: Laos: Clinic construction was halted due to government regulations and suspicion of evangelism.

Update: The Lord has provided a temporary clinic in Laos which will officially open in early January 2019. Construction in Cameroon, Chad, and Ecuador is complete. Construction in Senegal is waiting for electricity before they become fully functional. Aitie, Mali construction is ongoing and Lugansk, Ukraine is forthcoming.

May our trust in God’s sovereign plan be strengthened as we reflect on His goodness. Happy New Year!
