Children’s Prayer Club: Guinea-Bissau

Author: Hannah

From the children:

Every week we learn about a different culture or people group needing prayer. We study their situation and pray for them throughout the week.

Please join us in prayer for the people of Guinea-Bissau.

Baptism in Guinea-Bissau

The country:

Guinea-Bissau is a tiny little country in West Africa and is one of the poorest countries in the world. It is only 14,000 sq miles with a population of 1,179,000. They grow peanuts, cotton, and cashews.

Their faith:

In 1998 the army rebelled against the government and war broke out. Many people had to leave Guinea-Bissau. Christians took in the people of Guinea-Bissau and many of the refugees became Christians. Christians are now translating the Bible into the languages of Guinea-Bissau.

Please pray:

Hannah prays that the people of Guinea-Bissau will continue to trust in Jesus and will tell their friends about him and that the leaders of the country will rule wisely. Marissa prays that Missionaries will be sent to Guinea-Bissau and that Christian people will tell others about Jesus. Elisabeth prays that the Guinea-Bissau learn to read. Emily prays that the Guinea-Bissau people who aren’t Christians will learn about Jesus. Elijah asks that God will please give the children more Bibles.

Thank you,

Hannah, Marissa, Elisabeth, Emily, and Elijah Bagasao

I Timothy 2: 1, 3: I urge then, first of all, that requests, prayers, intercession, and thanksgiving be made for everyone. This is good and pleases God our Savior, who wants all men to be saved and to come to a knowledge of the truth.

Bagasao Children’s Prayer Club: Greenland

From the children:

Every week we learn about a different culture or people group needing prayer. We study their situation and pray for them throughout the week.

Please join us in prayer for Greenland.

The country:

Greenland's National Flower

Greenland's National Flower

Greenland is the biggest island in the world. Greenland is about 840,000 sq miles and is covered mostly in ice. The population is only 56,156. Erik the Red was from Iceland and found Greenland. Even though he knew it was ice-covered, he called it Greenland so that his family and friends would come and live there.

Their faith:

Erik the Red’s son, Leif the Lucky, first became a Christian when he went to Norway. He then came back and told everyone in Greenland about Jesus. Many people then became Christians. In 1751 a missionary came to Greenland from Denmark hoping to find Christians there. Instead he found that nobody believed in Jesus anymore. Christians then came to Greenland from Norway and Denmark and many of the Greenlanders came back to faith.

Spring Games in Greenland

Spring Games in Greenland

Even though they are a Christian country, most Greenlanders only go to church on Christmas. People are trying to change this. Many Greenlanders now have the opportunity to watch Jesus films and others are going to Christian camps and schools. They are learning about truly living for Christ, which can be hard when those around you live for the world.

Please pray:

Hannah prays that the Greenlanders will continue to watch the Jesus films and go to the Christian camps and schools, and that they will stay in faith and teach about Jesus to others. Marissa prays that the Christian Greenlanders will tell the non-Christians about Jesus. Elisabeth prays that the Greenlanders will stay as Christians forever. Emily prays that the Greenlanders that aren’t Christians will learn about Jesus. Elijah wants them all to have enough Bibles.

Bagasao Children’s Prayer Club: Greece

From the children:

Every week we learn about a different culture or people group needing prayer. We study their situation and pray for them throughout the week.

Please join us in prayer for the Greece.

The country:

Greece is a very old country that has a strong influence on the philosophies and culture of much of the world, including America. The first Olympics were held in Greece in 1896 and again in 2004.

Their faith:

Morning Star

Morning Star

Paul was the first to preach Christianity to the Greeks because God told him to (Acts 16-18). Greeks are mostly Orthodox Christians. Many rarely go to church and are Christian in name and tradition only. Orthodox Christian worship services are symbolic and use icons and saints.

Evangelicals don’t use icons and they preach that Christ is our friend and is with us always. Evangelicals preach that we don’t need a statue of saints, candles, or icons to reach God. Many Evangelicals are put in prison and persecuted for their faith, because the Orthodox church does not want them preaching.

The Morning Star is a boat that carries teams of evangelists to islands around Greece to preach. Some of the islanders are receptive, but others try to hinder their efforts.

Please pray:

Hannah prays that the Greek Christians show God’s love to all the non-Christians and teach them about him, and that God will keep the Morning Star and the people on it safe. Marissa prays that the Christians will have the courage to tell the non Christians about Jesus. Elisabeth prays that the Greek Christian churches will get stronger. Emily prays that the Greek Christians will tell the non-Christians about Jesus.

  • read a photo guide written by a second grader who journeys annually to Greece with her family, some being native Greeks. Very interesting from a young tourist’s perspective. It also links to the adult version by her father.

Thank you,

The Gond is one of the largest tribes living in central India. The people live in houses made of bamboo, leaves, and timber. Many of them are farmers.

Bagasao Children’s Prayer Club: Garifuna

Every week we learn about a different country or group of people needing prayer. We study their situation and then pray for them throughout the week.

Please join us in prayer for the Garifuna (gah-ree-foo-nah).

The people and their history:

The Garifuna people are descendants of slaves that now live in Honduras, Nicaragua, Guatemala and Belize.  In the 17th century, Spanish and British ships carrying slaves from Africa were shipwrecked, and some of the slaves escaped to St. Vincent.  Others were set free by their masters.  Many married Carib Indians.  They caused trouble, so in 1797 the British shipped them off to Roatan in the Caribbean.  They eventually made their way to their current homes.

There are now around 100,000 Garifuna.  These black Caribs mostly farm and fish.  Although they speak Spanish, Garifuna is the language they love.  They are now learning to read in Garifuna.

Bagasao Children’s Prayer Club: Fiji

Sugar CaneFrom the Bagasao Children:

Every week we learn about a different country or group of people needing prayer. We study their situation and then pray for them throughout the week.

Please join us in prayer for the country and people of Fiji.

The country and people:

Fiji is a group of 300 islands in the South Pacific, east of Australia.  Only 112 of the islands are inhabited.  The chief exports are sugar, gold, fish, and corpa (dried coconut which is used for extracting coconut oil).   The main language is English.

The religion:

Christianity first came to the islands 150 years ago when Christian missionaries came.  Christian Fijians thought the news about Jesus was so wonderful that they went to tell other people.  Dr. Brown was a missionary in Fiji who wanted to bring the Word of God to Papua New Guinea.  He went to the missionary school to see if there would be any volunteers to help him on his dangerous mission, traveling in deep-sea canoes to other islands.  Everyone wanted to go.  All 84 students said that if they lived, they lived, if they died, they died, but they were going to serve God.

Parachutes, prayer and planes

Because my darling site manager spontaneously seeks to improve this little blog world of mine, things get a little topsy turvy.  I used to follow behind and sweep up the mess, but that takes hours if not days.  He inevitably finds time to improve things again, and the cycle continues.  If he ever settles on a somewhat more permanent design, I will reorder things such as this page.  In the meantime, please accept my apologies for anything amiss in this Wonderland.  My site manager, by the way, works for pie and cookies and is a dream.  That’s why I married him.  
(1) Gather your supplies and cheerful helpers.
(1) Gather your supplies and cheerful helpers.

Parachutes, planes, prayer, and homeschool children. The combination hints strongly of a potential visit to the emergency room. Ah, not so! In this case, the combination represents little missionaries at work.

The Voice of the Martyrs supports a missionary pilot who attaches Bibles and short-wave radios to small parachutes and drops them into guerrilla-controlled areas of Columbia. He needs tens of thousands of parachutes to continue his mission.

We decided to help. While the Bagasao Children’s Prayer Club studied and prayed for the Columbians, we also put our hands to work measuring, cutting and sewing these parachutes.

Would you like to get involved? Follow these simple instructions, or follow our steps below! Read the rest of this entry »
