CBM Field Staff David and Suzannah Nacho are based in Costa Rica with their three children. The Nachos work with Community of Interdisciplinary Theological Studies (CETI), which provides students with a missional understanding of the church. CETI also equips them with the tools they need to live out integral discipleship through work, family, and within society. As Academic Dean, David gives leadership and strategic direction to the program, and Suzannah serves as an adjunct professor. Please pray that God would provide wisdom and joy to the Nachos, CETI staff, professors and facilitators as they seek to effectively train and form leaders. Also, please pray that CETI students would grow in their love of Christ and commitment to discipleship.
Please join us in praying for peace in South Sudan, which has been in crisis for the past four years due to ongoing civil war – displacing thousands of families and individuals. Please pray for the safety and well-being of the pastors and congregations of the Faith Evangelical Baptist Churches, our partner on the ground. Massacres have recently occurred in the areas where our partner churches are located, putting these congregations at risk. Please pray for God to calm their fears and to comfort them with his love as they trust in him during this difficult time. CBM Field Staff Aaron and Erica Kenny, based in Kenya, shared this message in a recent update: “As we pray today for South Sudan and for the Faith Evangelical Baptist Churches, who are carrying the hope and love of Jesus into the brokenness of their community, we are grateful for the broad people of faith that make up the Body of Christ in our world.”
DEMOCRATIC REPUBLIC OF CONGO
Based in Kenya, CBM Field Staff Aaron and Erica Kenny shared this recent prayer request: “We pray for the Baptist Community in Central Africa (CBCA), our partner church in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC). Attacks against the UN peacekeeping force in Beni are the latest symptom of the ongoing instability and brutality that the people of eastern DRC have been enduring. We pray for the families of the 15 murdered peacekeepers. We pray for an end to violence and for healing in this region.” The conflict in DRC has resulted in civilian deaths, hunger, abuse and disease. May God establish his peace among the people and comfort all who are mourning.
