Prayer Update
February 24, 2020

Thank you for praying for HFA! Below you will find some of our recent prayer requests.

“Every valley shall be raised up, every mountain and hill made low; the rough ground shall become level, the rugged places a plain. And the glory of the Lord will be revealed, and all people will see it together.” Isaiah 40:4-5 (NIV)

Praise Points

  • Praise God that our request for unproblematic shipping of technology to Asia has been answered – packages have arrived in good order.
  • Thank God for a successful day testing the waterdrone last week; we made some progress again.
  • Thank our ultimate Director for His guidance of our Board! Our most recent Board meeting covering several policy decisions went well.
  • Praise God that more people, especially in Europe, are embracing the vision of HFA and are excited about what God is doing!

Prayer Points

  • Pray for the hassle-free shipping of more technology, to be used for Bible transports to isolated people groups in Asia.
  • Pray as we troubleshoot a fault on the waterdrone that appeared during last week’s testing.
  • Please continue to bring our need for a Chief Operating Officer before the Lord. We ask that He would send and appoint the right person for the job.
  • Please continue to pray about the coronavirus and ask that our upcoming travel will not be impacted. God is sovereign over all health and disease. Continue to pray for His will to be done.

Unreached People Group

This category is a tool to raise awareness and pray for the unreached. Please note that HFA is not necessarily involved in reaching the people groups mentioned in this section.

Alak in Laos

The Alak people (worldwide population 26,000) live mainly in southern Laos, along with similar people groups including the Katu, Talieng, Lavae, Ngai, and Ta Oi. A lack of roads means these communities are difficult to visit, and sometimes the only practical means of transport may be by elephant!
Audio Bible teachings exist for 5 Alak dialects, but they have yet to reach wide circulation.

  • Pray that God will build strong multi-ethnic churches among the Non-Khmer groups in Laos.
  • Pray that God’s word will spread by word of mouth and audio technology in these areas!
  • Pray for the spread of the gospel in the remote parts of South East Asia.
