In need of encouragement

Aaron and Amy Speitelsbach serve in Liberia among the Glarro people. They thank God for the progress that they have made with the Bible lessons over the last couple of weeks. Aaron finished drafting the Cain and Abel lesson (lesson 9).

They were able to record someone retelling them the earlier lessons and are able to use some of the paragraphs to make the lessons sound more natural. Other, more difficult paragraphs become more confusing through the retelling, so they are not yet sure how they will improve those sections.

Two weeks ago, Aaron took one of their neighbours to the hospital . She was pregnant but had difficulties giving birth. She had to have a c-section. The baby had died. She contracted an infection and they decided to take her to a bigger, better hospital. On the way, the ambulance had a head on collision with a dump truck. She, her husband and their four-year-old son are in a critical condition. Three of their older children are at home in the Glarro village. Her mother-in-law (one of Amy’s comprehension helpers) died in that accident.

Pray for Aaron as he feels burned out and discouraged writing lessons. He will take a few days off from it this week and do some practical stuff around the house.

Pray for the Glarro people, that the Holy Spirit will work in their lives and prepare them for the Gospel message.

Pray for Aaron, Amy and their co-workers to challenge the people’s thinking and beliefs and point them towards God.

They thank God:

  • That He is in control, when everything seems impossible and overwhelming.
  • For the good paragraphs that have helped them improve the lessons and learn new ways to express things better in Glarro.

Please pray:

  • For the family that was in the car accident.
  • For strength and encouragement for Aaron and Amy and their co-workers during these difficult days, and that they would make the most of every opportunity to share His truth and show His love and compassion to those around them.

Thank you for your prayers and encouragement for the team as they serve among the Glarro people in Liberia.
