Pray for the Meskhetian Turks of Ukraine

Meskhetian Turks of Ukraine

Population: 10,000

Religion: Islam

With the recent Russian invasion of Ukraine, we join all those in Eastern Europe in praying for peace. We know that God is sovereign in all situations, and Scripture reminds us that He is close to the broken-hearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit.

Approximately 10,000 Meskhetian Turks live Southeast Ukraine. They live in rural villages as farmers with a few from the younger generation going to nearby cities to pursue further education. The lives of most Meskhetian Turks are tied to the land. They often farm the land and sell their vegetables in nearby centers while others are involved in cattle farming.

Community and family are very important, with weddings and other special occasions being opportunities for the community to gather and celebrate. Women tend to be at home or work near the home and are responsible for the children. It is still important for women to cover their heads and wear long clothing, although this is observed with varying degrees of strictness.

They are Sunni Muslims with a reasonable level of observance in their communities, having retained their religion through turmoil but also having been influenced by secularism of the former Soviet Union.

Most men attend mosque every Friday and all are observant of major Muslim holidays. The mosque also acts as a cultural center in which people can meet and discuss issues. In addition, because of their troubled history, peace and the basic needs of life are very important to them.

Ask God to send believers to share His truth with the Meskhetian Turks. Pray He will give them ways to share the gospel that help them not only see Christ but also realize their great need for Him.

Please pray for my family.

My sister’s heart and mind is filled with hurt, spite, jealousy, and hate. She continues to demonstrate this behavior around, and at times to her children and to all of us.

Her husband contributes to and/or does nothing to encourage her or them as a family to seek God’s guidance in matters that can only be made better through God’s grace and love.

Please pray for her/them to open their hearts to God.

Please also pray that our entire family will one day be able to come together with peace in our our hearts because we are so filled with the love and forgiveness only God can give us.

For right now we are a very broken family in desperate need of God’s healing, loving embrace.

Pray for Maddie

UPDATE (3/16/22):

Maddie is doing so much better. Pain is under control, so is the nausea. They are still diligently working to try and find a cause of why this happened twice to her and in such a short time frame.

Whenever she does get to go home, it will be on IV antibiotics twice a day, just like last time. So, that involves home health care. A team is in here right now putting A PIC line in for going home. It is unlikely they are going to find the “why” that we desperately want to know. They will not allow her to leave this hospital without the pneumonia and meningitis vaccine. It was mentioned to her last time to get it after the antibiotics were done. Her PCM said no though. They only give pneumonia to immune comprised patients or people over 65. He said no to the meningitis saying it was a fluke she even got it, and they only do the vaccine for college students and dorm style people who live close together. This time, these drs are taking no chances!

Praise that she is finally starting to eat small meals. She has started to make fast progress. The doctor said she might get to go home tomorrow. That’s what everyone is shooting for! I’m so proud of and impressed with this girl. She lets NOTHING keep her down for long.

Thank You all for the love and prayers keep them coming. We could use a little extra prayer that Kevin’s job will let him off tomorrow to come get us. We have no transportation here.

---------------------------------------------------------

Maddie Jenkins was admitted to the hospital Friday evening in severe pain with an extremely high fever which medications could not reduce.

She has been diagnosed with bacterial meningitis. She was in the hospital for an extended stay in December with this same issue.

Please pray wisdom for the doctors to know why this is recurring, peace for Maddie’s family, and healing for Maddie.

Pray for the Agaria of India

Agaria of India

POPULATION: 24,500

RELIGION: Islam

The Agaria people derive their name from the prominent city of Agra in northern India. Most live in India's states of Gujarat, Uttar Pradesh and Odisha.

They manufacture agricultural tools such as axes, ploughshares, and sickles. Many have also turned to agricultural pursuits and raising livestock. Others specialize in making toys such as wooden masks for children.

There are Hindus among them, but most of the 24,500 Agaria people are Sunni Muslim. They believe that Allah, spoken through his prophet, Mohammed, taught mankind how to live a righteous life through the Koran and the Hadith. To live a righteous life, you must utter the Shahada (a statement of faith), pray five times a day facing Mecca, fast from sunup to sundown during the month of Ramadan, give alms to the poor, and make a pilgrimage to Mecca if you have the means.

Pray for the Lord to give believers opportunities to go into this area of Northern India to build relationships with the Agaria peoples. Pray that the Agaria will hunger for the Lord and will receive the gospel with joy.

UPDATES continued on 3/14/22 POST...

3/6/22 UPDATE: Tommy was admitted to the Nash/UNC Health Care CCU late last evening (3/5) with a high fever. He was diagnosed and is now being treated for pneumonia. His blood pressure is better this morning. They plan on keeping him in CCU for several days to monitor him.

————————————————————

Please continue to follow and pray for Tommy and Teresa with updates posted on today:

3/4/22 UPDATE: Tommy was discharged this morning from the VA Hospital and is now home and doing OK. Please continue to pray for both Tommy & Teresa as he /they make this transition with him being home, - his healthcare, and comfort. Pray that his pain levels will be manageable. Pray for strength and endurance for Teresa as her health has not been good, as they work through these days. And, pray that God will be glorified through their visits with friends and family during these days.

----------------------------------------------------

2/23/22 UPDATE: Teresa said that over the next few days, Tommy will finish up with physical therapy at the VA and they may allow him to come home.

Tommy has decided to not continue with the radiation treatments at this time. Please continue to pray for the decisions that have to be made regarding his care in order for him to transition back home in the next week or so.

----------------------------------------------------

2/16/22 UPDATE: Tommy continues to be treated at the VA Hospital in Durham, and is now on the Rehab Floor. He continues to recover from his original cancer surgery and is now receiving physical therapy.

He is also receiving weekly radiation treatments for a total of 30 rounds over the next several months.

Please pray encouragement for Tommy as he undergoes these treatments and strength for both he and his wife Teresa, who also has several health issues she is dealing with at home, (she was recently admitted to the hospital after suffering a heart attack, and is now recovering at home), as they continue to have to be apart without visits during these days.

______________________________________________________

UPDATE (1/17/22) Tommy was moved back to the VA Hospital after many weeks of being in the Duke University Hospital. Please pray for his overall healing, and for healing at the wound site where his surgery was done on his jaw, and side of his face. This will require extensive healing and recovery before his doctors and surgical team can begin to discuss further reconstruction and follow up.

Pray for Teresa, his wife, who cannot be with him everyday, because of her health issues, and is at home. Pray for her peace and endurance while she is away from him. Pray also for their daughter Robin, who spends much time with her dad while he is in the hospital.

___________________________________________________

UPDATE (12/21/22) Tommy required additional surgery on his jaw, after the grafts and bones not being viable. They have begun using oxygen at the wound site to try and promote healing.

___________________________________________________

UPDATE (12/13/21) Tommy has now been diagnosed with pneumonia and is too weak to get up to do physical therapy. Pray for strength and for them to be able to treat the pneumonia with medication, and for continued healing. This is a definite setback that needs covered in our prayers.

--------------------------------------------------

Pray for Tommy White, as he is in the ICU at Duke Hospital following surgery (12/7) to remove a cancerous tumor from his jaw.

The tumor was much larger than they anticipated, therefore surgery was much more extensive than they expected.

Pray for his body not to reject the skin grafting that was done (taken from his thigh), for his body to accept the bone reconstruction and the muscle reconstruction that has been done in his jaw/side of his face/chin.

Pray for physical rest for Tommy as they keep him sedated as his body begins the healing process. Pray for Robin, their daughter, as she stays with him at the hospital, and for comfort for Teresa, as she is not with him at the hospital right now.

*************************************************

3/17/22 UPDATE: I have been put on a third antibiotic. Pray I’ll be able to tolerate that much medication. I’ve had problems with just two. My incision is still draining and I’m having to keep a watch on it. Still basically home bound, which is hard for me.

-------------------------------------------------------

3/2/22 Update: - Please continue to pray for me. I have a long recovery ahead still. I have good days and bad. I’m tired and discouraged some days. I’ve been home bound since December.

Pray that I will be content in my situation and use this time to spend with the Lord, listening to His voice. I keep wondering what I’m supposed to learn from this situation.

-----------------------------------------------------

2/28/22 UPDATE: Ruth had to go back to the East Carolina Medical Center in New Bern. Her leg, that she had additional surgery on just a few weeks ago because of an infection, was swollen and draining really bad. Doctors examined her and said everything was fine - no blood clots or infection and she was able to return home later that evening.

--------------------------------------------------------

2/10/22 UPDATE:

I’m finally home. I’ll wait about 3 to 8 months and have another knee replacement for same knee.

Right now I need to be quiet and rest, no visitors. I have a long way to go but thankful I’m getting better. Your prayers have gotten me this far. Thank you.

------------------------------------------------------

2/9/22 UPDATE:

I thought I could go home today. I can’t because no Health Care in Rocky Mount or Wilson has an opening for me. Please pray that one will be available today. They are checking Tarboro. I can’t go home without it. Today is day 12. I’m ready to go home.

Continued updates:

2/7/22: Ruth found out that there is still infection in this knee which will require more surgery. Today (Monday, Feb. 7), at 1 pm, they will remove the knee replacement that was put in, and put in a temporary to give time for the infection to clear. She will go home later this week with antibiotics and then return in 6 weeks for a new knee replacement. Pray for peace of mind going in to the surgery, and pray that the doctors/surgeons are able to remove all of the infection this time.

---------------------------------------------------------

2/5/22 UPDATE: Ruth found out this morning that she will need to have additional surgery the first of next week due to an aggressive infection that has developed in her knee that was replaced. The plan is to now remove the new knee replacement between the joints, send her home for 6 weeks with antibiotics and then schedule surgery again for a new knee replacement when the infection has cleared. Please keep Ruth in your prayers, as this news is terribly discouraging to her.

------------------------------------------------------

2/4/22 UPDATE:

I had surgery to clean knee infection on Wednesday night. They say there was a lot of it. Pray they got it all. I’m now waiting for someone from disease control to tell my Dr what antibiotic I need to go home with. I was supposed to be here over night but am starting on day 8. I want to go home but I know I can’t before its time. Pray I relax and am patient. I should be here through the weekend. Thank you for your prayers they are greatly appreciated.

———————————————————————

2/1/22 Update:

I will be having surgery Wednesday Feb 2 on the same knee I had replaced. They will go in and clean out all the infection. I will then do 6 weeks of IVs from home. Pray everything goes well and I can go home soon.

-------------------------------------------------------

1/31/22 UPDATE: I was admitted on Sat to Carolina East Hospital in New Bern. My knee incision had become infected and was draining. I am on antibiotics by IV and it is improving. Dr said I will be here at least until Wednesday. Thank you for your prayers.

---------------------------------------------------

(1/29/22) UPDATE:

Heading to New Bern this morning to be admitted. Woke up with runny leg where the swelling and redness have been. They will put me on antibiotics through IV. Not sure how many days I will be there.

——————————————————————

1/26/22 Update:

* I went to my surgeons office yesterday in New Bern. They said I have scar tissue and fluid.

*The fever is what’s concerning me. I’ve had a fever off and on since Tuesday of last week. No one knows what’s causing it. Please pray it will be gone or they can figure out the cause.

----------------------------------------------

UPDATE (1/21/22) After 5 hours at the ER, I am back home. I have fluid on my knee, the one that was replaced. I have to wear a big brace and use my walker again. I will visit my orthopedic doctor next week.

———————————————————

UPDATE (1/20/22): I’m still having low grade fever and swelling in my leg from knee replacement. I called my Dr. They said to go to ER. I\'m going as soon as my husband gets home. Please pray it’s not serious. Hoping it’s an infection that antibiotics can fix.

-----------------------------------------------

I am still going to PT for my knee replacement. I feel like I’m not accomplishing what I wanted by now. I haven’t felt good today. Having chills. Took temperature and it’s 101.9. Please pray it’s a 24 bug and not Covid. I had to cancel PT for tomorrow.

Pray for Baptist Children's Homes

There are 16,000+children without homes in the state of North Carolina alone!

Praise the Lord, that more than 120 children currently have safe, caring homes as a result of families saying “yes” to becoming licensed foster care parents.

BCH has been been providing a variety of placement and prevention services to meet the specific needs of children and families through their many programs including Cottage Care, Family Care, Community Outreach Ministry, Orphan Care, Family Foster Care and others.

Although we can’t help every child, you can be a difference maker for even one child giving them a bright hope for the future.

Join with us in prayer, that our own church, and churches throughout North Carolina would each care for at least 4 of the 16,000 children in North Carolina's foster care system! If Baptist Children's Homes and the local church met that goal, every child would have a caring home!

Sarodi of India

POPULATION: 34,500

RELIGION: Hinduism

As of 2022, 34,500 Sarodi live in the Gadchiroli district of Maharashtra, India. This area is very resistant to the gospel with any professing believer being targeted and persecuted both physically and mentally.

The Sarodi practice Hinduism, paying particular devotion to Shiva, the destroyer god. They offer prayers, food, flowers, and incense to Shiva in hopes of gaining protection and benefits.

Their main holiday is Holi, the festival of colors as well as Diwali, the festival of lights.

Would you join us in praying for believers to reach this area of India with the gospel of Jesus Christ. Ask the Lord to give the Sarodi open hearts and ears to receive the truth that Jesus is the One and Only God and that they believe in Him alone!

Indonesia, longer than the continental US, is not only the world’s largest island country, but also home to the world’s largest Muslim population.

The Singkil people, who are predominately farmers and fishermen, reside on the coastland and small islands of the southwest corner of Aceh, Indonesia.

Like many neighboring peoples, the Singkil adhere to Islamic tradition with community events, holidays, and family tightly woven into their Muslim identity.

Along with Islam, animism is also mixed into their belief system. Often the Singkil people can be found seeking the magical power of a local shaman or dukun.

Follow further updates beggining on 3/2/22 Prayer Requests! Thank you for continuing to pray!

***************************************************

2/10/22 UPDATE:

I’m finally home. I’ll wait about 3 to 8 months and have another knee replacement for same knee.

Right now I need to be quiet and rest, no visitors. I have a long way to go but thankful I’m getting better. Your prayers have gotten me this far. Thank you.

------------------------------------------------------

2/9/22 UPDATE:

I thought I could go home today. I can’t because no Health Care in Rocky Mount or Wilson has an opening for me. Please pray that one will be available today. They are checking Tarboro. I can’t go home without it. Today is day 12. I’m ready to go home.

Continued updates:

2/7/22: Ruth found out that there is still infection in this knee which will require more surgery. Today (Monday, Feb. 7), at 1 pm, they will remove the knee replacement that was put in, and put in a temporary to give time for the infection to clear. She will go home later this week with antibiotics and then return in 6 weeks for a new knee replacement. Pray for peace of mind going in to the surgery, and pray that the doctors/surgeons are able to remove all of the infection this time.

---------------------------------------------------------

2/5/22 UPDATE: Ruth found out this morning that she will need to have additional surgery the first of next week due to an aggressive infection that has developed in her knee that was replaced. The plan is to now remove the new knee replacement between the joints, send her home for 6 weeks with antibiotics and then schedule surgery again for a new knee replacement when the infection has cleared. Please keep Ruth in your prayers, as this news is terribly discouraging to her.

------------------------------------------------------

2/4/22 UPDATE:

I had surgery to clean knee infection on Wednesday night. They say there was a lot of it. Pray they got it all. I’m now waiting for someone from disease control to tell my Dr what antibiotic I need to go home with. I was supposed to be here over night but am starting on day 8. I want to go home but I know I can’t before its time. Pray I relax and am patient. I should be here through the weekend. Thank you for your prayers they are greatly appreciated.

———————————————————————

2/1/22 Update:

I will be having surgery Wednesday Feb 2 on the same knee I had replaced. They will go in and clean out all the infection. I will then do 6 weeks of IVs from home. Pray everything goes well and I can go home soon.

-------------------------------------------------------

1/31/22 UPDATE: I was admitted on Sat to Carolina East Hospital in New Bern. My knee incision had become infected and was draining. I am on antibiotics by IV and it is improving. Dr said I will be here at least until Wednesday. Thank you for your prayers.

*The fever is what’s concerning me. I’ve had a fever off and on since Tuesday of last week. No one knows what’s causing it. Please pray it will be gone or they can figure out the cause.

----------------------------------------------

UPDATE (1/21/22) After 5 hours at the ER, I am back home. I have fluid on my knee, the one that was replaced. I have to wear a big brace and use my walker again. I will visit my orthopedic doctor next week.

———————————————————

UPDATE (1/20/22): I’m still having low grade fever and swelling in my leg from knee replacement. I called my Dr. They said to go to ER. I\'m going as soon as my husband gets home. Please pray it’s not serious. Hoping it’s an infection that antibiotics can fix.

The Yezidi of Iraq are familiar with hopelessness. As of 2022, approximately 200,000 live in refugee camps and unfinished settlements in the Kurdish region of Iraq.

Their unique religious beliefs put them at odds with their Muslim neighbors and have drawn eternal enemies throughout their long history. Ultimately, they wrestle with the unseen enemy who works to keep them trapped in a hopeless religious tradition that leads only to death.

As Yezidis seek true hope and freedom, pray they will find Jesus.

-------------------------------------------------

2/8/22 UPDATE:

AJ had a good night and has had an awesome day today! He is relaxed and calm. They have lowered his meds and he has managed this great. They are doing a lasix drip to help him continue to lose fluids. His x-ray of his lung showed great improvement.

If he continues to lose fluids and they can continue to lower his medications without him becoming uncomfortable, we feel that they may be able to try to remove the vent tomorrow.

-----------------------------------------------------

2/7/22 UPDATE:

AJ had a rough night Saturday night, so they had him resting on Sunday and did not take him off of the vent. They are going to try and wean him off today. He is still losing a lot of fluid. He continues to have some issues remaining sedated, so pray for peace and a calm mind.

--------------------------------------------------

2/5/22 UPDATE:

They plan to lower sedation and oxygen tomorrow morning to do some neurological exams with AJ to see if he can follow commands - he has shown he can the past few days, but he gets really worked up after a few minutes of being fully awake so they've had to sedate him again. He is starting to lose a lot of fluid and he's maintaining a good platelet level. Doctors said he is still on target for recovery from his transplant he is really just resting through his worst days. Pray he can be extubated tomorrow and we can keep him calm through the exams and removal process.

———————————————-

2/4/22 UPDATE:

AJ has shown major improvements and they are going to reduce the sedation and take him off the ventilator today. Our main goal from here is to continue to get the rest of the fluid off his lungs and continue healing from transplant!

He may be admitted to ICU if his fever does not break and oxygen levels do not increase.

Ross University School of Medicine has announced that it will be cutting staff. The Chair of the Department of Clinical Foundations has been laid off as of last Friday 1/21/22. We are waiting to hear if anyone else will also be laid off. As I am one of the most recent people to be hired it is possible that I will be laid off as well.

Please pray for peace in the midst of big transitions. Pray that the training of the students would not be negatively impacted by the loss of faculty. Pray that I would be able to keep my job at the school so that we can continue our ministry here.

Pray for the Patari of India

Patari of India

POPULATION: 2,900

RELIGION: Hinduism

Obra, a town in Uttar Pradesh, India. It is an industrial town with a coal-fire thermal power station in the center. The Patari of India, numbering 2,900 as of 2021, live along the outskirts of Obra. They are farmers and sharecroppers.

They are Hindu, but also incorporate family customs and rituals into their worship.

Pray for someone- maybe even someone right here from our own congregation- to go to the Patari people and share the gospel of Jesus Christ with them! Pray for open hearts and ears to accept the Good News that Jesus is the ONLY God and the only way to Heaven!

2/9/22 UPDATE:

Josh has some complications. He will have a procedure done Thursday. He asks for our prayers for God’s healing touch. And he is so grateful for all our prayers.

-------------------------------------------------------

A young friend, Joshua Moore of Battleboro, after spending 3 months at Chapel Hill, was transferred to a hospital in Washington. He is waiting for a liver and intestinal transplant. This is an urgent need.

He needs prayers and words of encouragement. If God puts it on your heart to send a card to Josh, send it to: Joshua Moore, 1550 Clarendon Blvd., Apt. 111, Arlington, VA 22209.

He is not doing well and is feeling depressed. Yes, Josh is a strong believer in Jesus Christ but needs some strong words of encouragement.

Pray for the family of Rev. William A Wallace

Rev. William A. Wallace went home to meet his Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ on Sunday morning, January 23, 2022.

He was an only son, dedicated husband, a beloved father, grandfather and great grandfather, but was also the pastor of Englewood Baptist Church from the mid 70's to mid 80's here in Rocky Mount.

No other information is known at this time, but please keep the family and friends in your prayers - as they grieve his loss, but cherish his memory, trusting in the Prince of Peace and rejoicing that he is now in Heaven and that their separation is only temporary, for those who believe.

Sanctity of Life Sunday - January 23, 2022

SANCTITY OF HUMAN LIFE

Every life is precious because everyone is created in the image of God.

Sunday, January 23, 2022 is Sanctity of Human Life Sunday. We will celebrate God’s gift of life. As Christ-followers, we are called to speak up for those who cannot speak for themselves (Prov. 31:8). Join us in praying this week for:

*Women who are facing an unplanned pregnancy today, or that those who are overcoming the trauma of a past abortion would find hope and forgiveness in Jesus Christ.

*Our community partner, Your Choice Resource Center, whose staff, and volunteers are on the front lines, daily, battling the fight for life.

*The U.S. Supreme Court’s current deliberations to change our nation’s decision toward life. Pray the eyes of those who oppose life would be opened and that God would give courage to those who are for life to stand firm.
