We believe in the power of the prayers of God's people.  And we don't want to be doing anything that isn't bathed in prayer.  As we endeavor to complete the tasks the Lord has given us in this work, we are needing people who will faithfully pray. 



Ukraine Refugee Relief

Please pray for Chip and his ministry partners on the ground in Moldova.  They have been continuing work with Ukraine refugees inside Moldova's borders.  Please pray:

  • that God would continue to provide the funds needed for gas, vehicles, food, clothes, diapers, medicine, etc.

  • for the refugees to make it to safety and get settled into their temporary homes..

  • for those helping to be bold in sharing the gospel and compassionate as they offer care and counsel.

  • for God's hand of mercy to bring peace to the region.

Taekwondo Ministry

Chip carries on with his Taekwondo ministry in the villages.  He was able to bring kids to 2 Christian camps over the summer, and held a successful day camp in a new area.  Please pray for:

  • the students who surrendered their lives to Christ to continue to grow in their faith and understanding of God and His word.

  • the expansion of the taekwondo ministry into new villages with the help of some of Chip's co-laborers. 

FELI, ISABEL, FERNANDO - Mexico City and beyond...

They have been continuing evangelism and discipleship ministry in the community of La Laguna in Mexico City, as well as helping distribute food from the agriculture project.  Please pray for the lives that are impacted by these outreaches, and for people to grow in their faith.

Please pray for the success of the upcoming Evangelism Training in Coyoacan January 25 - 30, 2023.  They will be taking a team from Missouri to work with the Iglesia Bautista Vida Nueva there to train their church members in personal evangelism.  Please pray:

  • that the teaching team traveling from Missouri and Mexico City would have safe travels and health,  and a time of fruitful ministry with the people who come.

  • for the ladies who will be serving meals for the group to have a blessed time as well.

  • for the gospel to go forth in power from the lives and words of these people who want to reach their neighbors with the love of Christ.


Mark and Gina Schmidt run a wonderful Christ-centered pre-k to 11th grade school in Buena Vista, Guatemala.  The students are able to be there with tuition paid by parents and the sponsorship of others.  The school recently sustained some damage due to strong tropical storms.   You can learn more about sponsoring students here.  Please be praying for:

  • more sponsors so more children from the town of Buena Vista can attend this excellent school.

  • funds to come in to help with repairs to the storm damage. 


  • Please pray for us as we look toward several mission trip opportunities in 2023 - for wisdom, and if, when and where to go.

  • Pray for the various missionaries we currently work with - that they would see the Lord faithfully providing for them and their ministries.

  • Please pray for us as we look toward the expansion of the ministry - that we would be yielded to the Holy Spirit's leading and focused on Christ and His glory in all our endeavours.

  • Pray for us as we look to the Lord for financial provision for ConnecTree to be able to do more ministry and add staff to the team this next year (2023) so that we have greater capacity to serve and help spread the gospel.

  • Praise God for His grace and mercy, and for allowing us to participate in the ministry of serving missionaries and the communities they minister to around the world!
