Our Special Interest International Missionaries, Charles and Sarah Clement-West have recently received word that American Baptist International Ministries has suspended it's partnerships in
and they would need to seek reassignment. After much prayer they have decided that only Charles will remain as an international missionary. He and the team at International Ministries are exploring what new partners, what ministry focus and in what countries he might serve as his next assignment. They ask us to pray that this period will be Spirit-led as they continue to discern God's directions. Zambia
A Prayer for Our Special Interest Missionaries
Gracious God, we pray this day for our Special Interest International Missionaries, Charles and Sarah Clement-West as they transition from their assignment in
to new fields of service. Lead them and the team at International Ministries to determine the ministry focus, partners, and countries where they may best serve in their next assignment. May they feel the strength of our prayers and be Spirit-led as they continue to discern Your directions. These things we ask in the name of Jesus Christ, who leads and sustains us in His service. Amen. Zambia
