Pray For Us

Thank you for your partnership and for lifting us up in prayer. Please stand with us in prayer for the following praises and needs:

Sichuan Certificate
We praise God for the successful registration of MSI’s Sichuan and Yunnan representative offices under the new foreign NGO regulations. Continue to pray for the beian (approval process) for our projects and 2017 work plans.

Pray for the recruitment of younger workers to join our organisation.  Many of our members are in their last term of service as they reach retirement age or need to care for aging parents.  We need 10-12 new workers per year to maintain and grow our work in China.  Pray also for the right people to develop strategies for working in China.
handover
Our sites in Yunnan have seen a transition of leadership in almost every site as experienced workers have returned to their home countries or at least for extended home assignments. Pray for the new leaders and our Yunnan Chief Representative, Nancy Shen, as she strives to bring stability to the work in that province.
webvisa
New work and expert visa regulations touch on age, educational qualifications, language ability, length of time in China, annual income, etc. These regulations will significantly impact our members. As doors close in some areas, pray for open windows in others.
stamp poverty
The Chinese government is targeting poverty, having initiated a campaign to ensure that all its citizens will live above the poverty line (defined as earning less than USD $1 a day) by 2020.
Pray that MSI will be able to work together with the government to improve the economic and social situation of many disadvantaged families over the next few years.
TTT heqing 05 e
Pray for the children of our ex-pat workers as they return to school for the spring semester.  Especially for those studying in the local schools, pray that the children will learn well and enjoy time with their Chinese friends.  Pray for parents who struggle to make good educational decisions for their children.
