General Requests (Always needed)

  • Global workers often don't realize they need help. Pray they will recognize the need and find an Oasis

  • For the workers we are ministering to now

  • Guidance and Wisdom to be effective with workers

Specific Requests and Thanksgiving (Updated July 12)

  • We are still asking God to supply 100% of needed financial support.

    • Update: Several one-time gifts have been given to meet needs. We are so grateful to people who respond to God’s leading on their hearts.

  • Pray for the various men's bible studies Franz leads. Not only do we minister to Global workers, but we also care for the men in our church and community. We want to see them become men of God, serving their families, churches and communities.

  • Pray for the provision of a car. Currently we ride bikes, but with winter here it brings many challenges. We are hoping to purchase a used car for about €5000.

    • Update: A missionary family graciously donated their car to us! God has provided a 2008 Honda FRV diesel that will be a great blessing to our ministry. It’s definitely a game-changer!

  • Our son Jacob and wife Chloe just recently relocated to Wisconsin. We praise God for the provision of a job and ask for prayer as they find an apartment and learn to live in a different climate than they are accustomed to. They are close to Franz’s family.

    • Update: Jacob and Chloe are doing great! Jacob found a great job and is excelling at it. They just moved into their first apartment and bought their first car. We are so happy and proud of their progress!

  • Pray for incoming guests that they will get the rest they need and that we can be sensitive to their needs.

    • Update: God has been using our ministry in our guests lives. Many of our guests have responded positively and appear to be encouraged as they leave our home.

  • Pray that we would reflect God’s glory in all that we do.

    • Update: We have recently heard reports of how God is using us in people’s lives. Results are sometimes hard to see in this kind of ministry, so these reports are always an encouragement.

  • We are traveling to the USA in September for one month to visit our children, connect with supporters and hopefully meet some new ones! We praise God for his financial provision for this trip. Matthew will be moving in with his sister Jennifer and Andrew as he prepares for a career in the Armed Forces.

  • Jennifer and Andrew are doing really well in Indiana. They both have great jobs and have seemingly adjusted well. Please pray they will find a church home to fit into.

  • Praise that God has graciously allowed us to meet people’s spiritual needs. We are simply a conduit or even more simply a tool in God’s workshop to point people back to Jesus Christ.
