Missionary Prayer Requests

Hi all,

On behalf of the missionaries, thank you for being so faithful to pray.

Mike and Sherill Sedillo, Hearts4Africa, Naluko, Uganda

Prayer requests:

  • My prayer requests are probably the same as Pastor Gary‘s. Except please pray for our upcoming fundraiser that it is very successful and we can raise enough money to continue to pay salaries for the next year.
  • Pray for the team that’s coming in October that everything goes smoothly and that we don’t have to cancel the trip because of Covid and that we find many women that need our help while they’re there.

Juventine and Elizabeth Emuku, Calvary Chapel Soroti, Uganda


  • Currently doing ok.

Prayer requests:

  • Our older daughter, Diana, isn’t feeling well. Could be Malaria, but she is getting tested for Covid.
  • Church giving is down because of Covid, but we still have financial needs.
  • Our receptionist, Bena, has Covid and is in the hospital. Pray for her healing. She will be off for two weeks.
  • Re ambulance. We have some money, but need another $15,000. We need to have oxygen on board, because some patients are oxygen dependent. Especially needed during Covid.
  • We get calls around the clock. Need wisdom as they juggle all the issues that occur.
  • Please pray for the health of our family, community, and the staff as they serve others with Covd.

Charles and Levenia Jjagwe – Calvary Chapel Buwama, Uganda


  • Thank God, He’s working.
  • The clinic is almost finished, but still working on remaining construction projects. Pray for the completion of the medical building.
  • Although radio broadcasts are dominated by witchdoctors, Charles got two broadcasts a week (1 hour each) for $60/month. Please pray they need a computer and other equipment.
  • Had a great time of rest and fellowship over the weekend.
  • Able to give food to the church family.

Prayer requests:

  • Infections are going down, but the death rate is up.
  • Many people are chronically sick and quite a few are starving.
  • Protection of our family, church and community.

Jon and Allison Brechtel, Calvary Chapel Oaxaca, Mexico

Prayer requests:

  • We need wisdom on what to do about our car. The permit expires in February so we are praying about whether we should drive it up and sell it in the states, or get it imported which would also mean we’d have to drive it to the border.
  • We need to find a car to use while we’re in California next month, or for the Lord to provide the money to rent one. They are so expensive right now. We will be going to a church planting conference in Rosarito.
  • Ministry is continuing to pick up so please pray for endurance, strength, and for us to be diligent with the ministry that the Lord has entrusted us with.
  • We are praying about an opportunity that has come up for us to help the boys get a good foundation for Spanish.
  • We need wisdom in gently correcting funky issues that come up. We want to gently guide them toward the truth.
  • Pray for the teams that are coming out.

Thank you all for your prayers. We are praying for all of you! God bless!

  2. Please pray for the salvation of lost people.
  3. There is a rumor going on about another lockdown. Please pray that it is only fake, but there would be protection on people’s health.

Punkaj & Tonielle Sarkar – Calvary Chapel Kathmandu, Nepal

Prayer requests:

  • Please pray for wisdom for Pankaj and me.

Levi has always had issues with his eyes (mostly styes). About 3 weeks ago, we noticed his left eye was red and had some discharge coming from it. Thinking it was pink eye, we started using some antibiotic eye drops that we had in our medical kit at home. While putting some drops in his eye, I found something under his top eyelid that definitely didn’t belong there. The thing I found does not hurt him or cause any discomfort, but it is causing his eye to look and feel swollen.

We took him to an eye doctor a week ago and they gave us medication to see if it would help but it didn’t. Then a few days ago, he woke up and there was blood coming from his eye (sorry – too much information).

We went to a new eye doctor today and she confirmed what I thought it might be (thanks to lots of Google searches). It is a pyogenic granulomas. Praise God, pyogenic granulomas are benign tumors/lesions that have absolutely no risk of cancer. They are often caused by a past injury or irritation (likely from one of his past styes, in this case).

She told us that it is actually a very simple procedure to remove it and could be done in the office but Levi would have to be awake and she doesn’t think he would stay still for it. Because of this, it will require us to go to an eye hospital to put him under anesthesia.

We are praying that God will work a miracle and remove it completely, this week, but if He chooses not to heal it that way, we are asking for wisdom in which hospital and doctor we should take him to to have it removed. We’re also trying to figure out if he might be able to stay still for the procedure under local anesthetic since we know and trust the hospital we had him checked at today. Other hospitals in the Kathmandu Valley can be a little sketchy.

The other option would be to wait till we go to America to have it removed; besides the obvious issue of the cost being much more, if we wait, it would mean that the lesion could grow and bleed more and more over the next few months before we are back Stateside.

Sorry for the long email and thank you for your prayers! We will keep you updated on what happens.

Cal and Jessica Stuebner, Calvary Chapel Managua, Nicaragua

Prayer requests:

  • Please continue to pray for Jessica. She had a positive Covid test after the free test was negative. Once again it is not certain when she can return to Nicaragua.
  • Also her mother’s car broke down yesterday so Jessica was not able to go to church. She wants to go to the missions meeting on Friday night but we need a miracle rapid repair on the car for this to be possible.
  • Pray for tonight’s men’s meeting
  • Pray for movie night. Showing another episode of “The Chosen.”
  • Please pray for Mike and his family in the U.S.
  • We also need prayer for a construction issue that involves money. Praying there isn’t any hurt feelings or division.

Thank you so much for praying.

With love in Christ,

Cal and Jessie Stuebner
