This week we’re focusing most of our prayers on specific church planters. Today I want you to meet Lyle and Stacey Watson, church planters in Tamarindo, Costa Rica. For over three years now this couple has been ministering the English-speaking internationals in this South American paradise.
Central and South America are not just tourist destinations anymore but are growing in their population of expats living abroad. Below are the specific cities we are praying for:
Rio de Janiero, Brazil
San Miguel Allende, Mexico
Tamarindo, Costa Rica (Read about our church plant here.)
Prayer focus: Pray that God would turn residents’ hearts away from false gods and toward Himself. Pray that God would call more church planter to these specifics cities and that He would pave the way for new English-language churches in each of them.
